Madonna released her new video for “B**** I’m Madonna,” and despite its many famous cameos, it’s nothing like Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.”
While Swift's video was all about sleek fight scenes, Madonna’s video -- which first debuted on streaming service Tidal -- is one big, raucous party. The crazy, colorful visual was filmed on the 17th floor of the Standard, Highline hotel in New York City, and in its clubs, the Boom Boom Room and Le Bain.
It features some of Madonna's famous pals dancing around and mouthing the words to the song. Those guest stars include Katy Perry, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Diplo, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Kanye West and fashion designer Alexander Wang -- along with Nicki Minaj, who raps on the song.
Madonna announced the video’s debut on Twitter and quoted lyrics from the song: "We go hard or we go home!"
The video was directed by Jonas Akerlund, who also directed Madonna's last video, for “Ghosttown,” as well as her “Ray of Light” video. Akerlund told Entertainment Weekly that wrangling all of the guest stars took some work.
“It’s always a challenge,” he said. “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.”
