Is Beyoncé joining Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Diplo and Nicki Minaj in the visual for Madonna's new single?
Madonna has fuelled rumors that fellow TIDAL artist and she-of-endless-lawsuits, Beyoncé Knowles, will be making an appearance in the video for "Bitch I'm Madonna" - due to be released later today.
Retweeting fan art that includes Beyoncé on the roster for her guest stars, Madge appears to be endorsing the speculation that Mrs Carter will round-out the star studded affair.

Rather than simply go for an assortment of famous people, Madonna appears to very carefully be selecting some of the most powerful women in music (and Rita Ora, for absolutely no explicable reason) to make a bold statement about her continued influence and relevancy. It's a crass move, especially only a few weeks after the clip for "Bad Blood", but it's not an unwarranted one.
Plus Taylor may have done it first, but Madonna with Beyoncé (who, love her or hate her, is one of the biggest stars in the world) sort of won the battle of the superfluous guests, didn't she?
"Bitch I'm Madonna" drops later today (June 16).
