Katy, Miley, Kanye, Beyonce and Nicki Make Blink-And-You-Miss-It Cameos in Madonna’s ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ Video
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.)
