Um, Madonna’s New Music Video Is BONKERS

Madonna Once Dated Tupac Shakur

When Madonna makes a new music video, you BET it makes headlines.

The newest clip for her single “Bitch I’m Madonna,” is no exception! A teaser of the video debuted online on Wednesday and it seems INSANE AND features a Taylor Swift-ian amount of cameos from Beyonce, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, and others.

For the occasion, Madonna teamed up with one of her most trusted collaborators, director Jonas Akerlund- he directed 1998’s Grammy-winning “Ray of Light” to April’s dramatic, post-apocalyptic “Ghosttown,” so he knows what works for Madge.  Though the whole video isn’t out yet, here’s a little taste of what’s to come through the eyes of Akerlund:

On coming up with the concept: “Madonna called me about ‘Ghosttown.’ We hadn’t worked for a while because of different circumstances so when I heard all the songs [on Rebel Heart], I was very excited about ‘Ghosttown.’ I connected to it creatively. And, yeah, we enjoyed working together. I was supposed to start something else right after and that got pushed and she asked me to do ‘Bitch I’m Madonna.’ I saw it being so completely different from ‘Ghosttown,’ something a little bit less serious, just fun and crazy.”

On filming over one night in NYC: “It’s always a challenge. Madonna is a celebrity enough for any music video. But with the nature of the song and the playfulness of it, we thought, ‘Let’s have some friends and family and go crazy with it!’ Everyone was spread out and their time is tight, but the good news is we all love Madonna and everyone wants to be involved. That made it really fun and playful.”

On fighting against daylight: “On film shoots, you normally fight against losing daylight, but on this job we were fighting against the sun coming up. But you do see parts of it at the end, the sun on it’s way up.”

Sounds like celebs, sleeplessness and CHAOS. Check out the teaser here and tell us what you think!

Madonna Rails Against Haters, Reschedules Tour Dates

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Madonna is getting some HEAT for the success (or lack thereof) of her new album.

Released in March, Rebel Heart, which is Madonna’s 13th studio album (and least commercially successful) managed to hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200, but has since dropped way lower. And, people are giving her some real backtalk for it.

Madge defended herself against haters after naysayers who criticized her on social media by taking to twitter and instagram to defend herself:

“Shut up jealous bitches!” she captioned an instagram pic. “I hope you are as fun loving and adventurous as me when you’re my age!!!! Hahahha let’s see. #bitchimmadonna #rebelheart.”

The singer was supposed to start touring on Aug. 29 in Miami, but she announced on Thursday that the kickoff date is being pushed back and she will play her first Rebel Heart show on Sept. 9 in Montreal, Canada. This shift affected a few later dates in the schedule, changing plans for those attending her shows.

“As my fans already know, the show has to be perfect,” the star said in a statement. “Assembling all the elements will require more time than we realized. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my fans. I can promise you this show will be worth the wait. Can’t wait to share it with all my Rebel Hearts out there.”

Yikes, Madonna. You’d better deliver or you may have a social media coup!

Madonna Disses Drake’s Coachella Kiss!

Madonna Once Dated Tupac Shakur

That kiss between Madonna and Drake just got even more AWKWARD, ya’ll!

The singer just did a Q&A with Saturday Night Online, where she said she totally regrets kissing the rapper during a Coachella performance last month.

“You asked the million dollar question,” Madonna said when a fan asked if Drake was a good kisser. “I kissed a girl, and I liked it.”

While her response wasn’t entirely clear, she revealed her true feelings when asked what advice she could give her younger self. “Don’t kiss Drake,” she answered. “No matter how many times he begs you to.”

So wait- not sure what the whole I kissed a girl part of this gobbledygook is, but Madge she seems to say that Drake BEGGED for a kiss from the pop icon. As you know, when she did plant one on him, Drake looks seriously disgusted but said it wasn’t Madonna, but her lipstick that grossed him out.

What do you think’s the REAL story?

Madonna: No Texting During The Show!

Madonna Once Dated Tupac Shakur

Hey Madonna: you might wanna put your phone away when you’re watching a PLAY.

So here’s the deal- the much anticipated hip hop musical Hamilton debuted this weekend in the East Village- and two celebs were in attendance- Madonna and Michelle Obama.  Apparently, Michelle Obama behaved impeccably, even giving the show a standing ovation. Madonna, on the other hand, wasn’t so polite…

Madonna caught the evening performance of the hip-hop musical, but spies say she spent the second act pecking out texts on her phone. When “Hamilton” star, author and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda took the stage at the end of the show, urging the audience to donate money to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, he mentioned that there was someone in the audience who could afford to pay a lot for something he was auctioning off — someone who did a lot of texting.

Later, the Tony winner tweeted, “Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage #noselfieforyou.” The tweet was later deleted.

Dang, Madonna. Maybe take a page from Michelle Obama’s book and UNPLUG for a minute!
