If you haven’t heard by now, Madonna‘s new music video for “Bitch I’m Madonna” was released exclusively on TIDAL today. Madonna announced the release of the video through Twitter:

The highly anticipated video promised cameos by Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora. Rita herself posted this picture to Instagram, confirming all these ladies were going to be starring in it.
Having watched the full video myself, it’s safe to say that all these promos were completely misleading. Here are my takeaways from the video.
The only people who sing on the track is Madonna and Nicki Minaj. Major let down. Although I love Nicki, I wanted to hear all the ladies singing.
Beyoncé, Rita Ora, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus flash on the screen for about three seconds, lipsyncing “Bitch I’m Madonna.” It also looked like Beyoncé, Miley and Katy filmed the scenes on their own and just sent in the tape to Madonna’s people…awkward.
There are random appearances by Diplo, Chris Rock and Alexander Wang…who had awesome dance moves.
Kayne West also made a cameo, yet nothing special.
The song itself is horrible and Madonna is running around kissing random people in a leopard mini dress and hot pink jacket. Her voice sounds so auto-tuned and it was almost like she forgot the words to her own song during some parts.
Sooo…on that note, you’ll have to subscribe to TIDAL to watch the full video but if you don’t want to waste your money, watch the teaser below. All in all, it was a huge disappointment and I want those 4 minutes of my life back.
