Katy, Miley, Kanye, Beyonce and Nicki Make Blink-And-You-Miss-It Cameos in Madonna’s ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ Videoby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
When Madonna performed “Bitch I’m Madonna” for the first time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she stormed through the backstage area, twerked across the stage and dry-humped her way over the late night host’s body in a furious fever dream of Moschino, Diplo and bling-filled excess and opulence.
And as it turns out, she’s done pretty much the same thing with the video for “Bitch I’m Madonna” as well — albeit with the help of a few of her famous BFFs.
Shot at the top of The Standard in NYC, the Jonas Åkerlund-directed clip for Madge’s noisy club anthem from her messy-yet-brilliant Rebel Heart is a rowdy blur of color, high-energy movement, model make-out seshes against the wall and blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em cameos galore from the likes of Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Diplo and designer Alexander Wang. Seriously, we’re talking maybe 6 seconds or less of lip-syncing, tops — and a green-screened Minaj on the hotel telly for good measure. (Except for Rita Ora, who was readily available in person.)
At its worst, it’s a messy, phoned-in self-celebration. At its best, it’s a pink-tipped “Deeper & Deeper” for the Vine generation.
Those little “Like A Virgin” BabyMadges at the beginning are super cute, fierce voguers Aya and Bambi continue to serve and all of Madge’s signature shimmying, crawling, straddling, sexy face-ing and grimacing are entirely on point as ever, but the clear scene-stealer of the entire performance was, of course…SOCK BITCH.
In the grand tradition of #TIDALEXCLUSIVES, you can head over to TIDAL to watch the whole HQ thing for the next 24 hours until it officially arrives to VEVO and YouTube. (Or, you know, watch a grainy rip.)
