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).
How do you feel about Beyoncé’s appearance in “Bitch I’m Madonna”?
