Bitch I'm Madonna


"We go hard or we go home," Madonna sings in "Bitch I'm Madonna."

That's putting it mildly. For weeks, the singer has been using Instagram to tease celebrity cameos in her "Bitch I'm Madonna" music video, and on Tuesday, she revealed that Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and Katy Perry will make appearances. "Video coming soon! Just tryin to make it perfect for all of you. We are hard werking bitches! #bitchimmadonna," the 56-year-old pop icon wrote in the caption. Madonna tagged the five divas, as well as music producer Diplo and costume designer Arianne Phillips.

Madonna shared a video teaser four days earlier, though none of her famous friends starred in the clip.

"Bitch I'm Madonna" is the third single from Madonna's Rebel Heart album and features a verse by Minaj. Madonna first worked with the rapper on her last album, MDNA, and even performed with her at the Super Bowl in 2012. How did the other collaborations come to be? Earlier this year, Madonna and Beyoncé helped launch Tidal, a subscription-based music streaming service. Ora, meanwhile, fronted her Material Girl clothing line in 2014. Madonna also performed with Cyrus during an MTV special that year. Perhaps not coincidentally, none of the divas appeared in Taylor Swift's star-studded "Bad Blood" video.

Swift's song, reportedly written about Perry, appears on her 1989 album. The video debuted at the Billboard Music Awards and featured cameos from Jessica Alba, Lily Aldridge, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid, Mariska Hargitay, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss, Kendrick Lamar, Ellen Pompeo, Serayah, Hailee Steinfeld, Hayley Williams and Zendaya.

Though Swift doesn't appear in Madonna's music video, it's nothing personal. "I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs," Madonna raved in January. "I can't get them out of my head." Then, in March, the music superstars teamed up for a surprise performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The full "Bitch I'm Madonna" music video will be released later today.
