"The song was a charttoper at many international countries."

What does this sentence mean? For example, what is an "international country"?

Also, I don't think that the title should be italicized. It should be "Who's That Girl".

And is "charttoper" spelled correctly?

Well as far as charttoper Im not sure but I led myself by the fact top has only one p.

it was a charttoper at many international countries, I said that to illustrate the fact it wasnt a #1 hit only in the United States, where the song was recorded.

Antonio La Puta Martin

Um .... I stoped listening? She taped him on the shoulder? He droped the glass? And I hope you don't mind what I changed. (Why "La Puta"????) Alter Ego 23:59, 7 Oct 2003 (UTC)

Cause Im a Puta. Im a Madonna wannabe (but IM NOT SAYING SHES A PUTA , JUST IN CASE)..LOL. Changes are more than welcome as long as they benefit the page and this one did. As far as She taped him on the shoulder and the rest, well, if those are parts of the lyrics, I was explained by someone else that we can only publish part of the lyrics, so we wouldnt get sued.

Thnaks for everything and God bless!

Antonio Madonna Wannabe Martin

No, it's "tapped", not "taped" etc. Nothing to do with the lyrics. Alter I Can Do This Too Ego

Fair use rationale for Image:Madonna-Whos-That-Girl.jpg[edit]

Image:Madonna-Whos-That-Girl.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Who's That Girl (Madonna song)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Hi, I'll be reviewing this article. I was a fan of Madonna in high school (even had a picture in my locker for a spell), but I'll try not to let my bias influence this GAR :) To save us both time, I'll make minor edits as I go along, and bring the other stuff up for discussion here. My wiki-plate is pretty full, so the review may take a few days. Cheers, Sasata (talk) 02:59, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Update: I've done a fairly extensive copyedit of the prose. Review the changes and revert anything you don't agree with, and also check if I've inappropriately altered the meaning. Will be back in a day or two with the actual review (and probably more copyediting). Sasata (talk) 02:56, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Wonderful! I checked and its fine. --Legolas (talk2me) 06:52, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok, have made a few more small tweaks to the article prose. I checked out some of the online sources, and mostly everything checks out. One comment:

  • "It was also featured on the promotional-only instore video compilations It's That Girl and She's Breathless.[24][25]" These citations are to Wikipedia articles, which is to be avoided. Can you find another print or web source that says the same?

  1. Sorry for the late reply. I replaced that link with that from Andrew Metz's book. It has a list of all the videos and the tracklists. --Legolas (talk2me) 04:57, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Who's that Girl Tour.[edit]

Anyone fancy changing the description of the supposed outfit Madonna whilst singing this? The one described is the outfit she wore for the performance of 'Dress you Up', not 'Who's That Girl'. Ta. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

What is her 'real self'?[edit]

I have removed the sentence in the opening paragraph about Madonna being crticised for not portraying her real self in the video. For one it is unsourced and two, completely unimportant. The actual likelihood of Madonna getting crticised at that point in her career for such a tame video, bearing in mind she had received much criticism for her previous, more sexually explicit videos, is incredibly unlikely and even if it were so, hardly widespread in nature.
