5 years ago today, the music video for 'Bitch I'm Madonna', third single from Rebel Heart, was released. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the 'one-shot' video saw Madonna and her entourage partying through a hotel room and featured various cameo appearances from the likes of Katy Perry, Beyonce and Kanye West. Comparisons to Taylor Swift's star-studded 'Bad Blood' video ensued, but the video allowed the song to chart upon the Billboard Hot 100 and it currently places as Madonna's most watched music video on YouTube.

The song itself was produced by Diplo and features a guest verse from Nicki Minaj. The title was introduced by Diplo himself, who explained that anyone who remained cool when faced with criticism was appropriating Madonna.

What are your thoughts on the song and music video today?

The music video...I'm not sure if a part of me loves it but it's definitely more hate. The fact that it's MADONNA and all these popstars still didn't wanna turn up and they're on those screens makes it so cringe ngl laugh.gif Her crawling on the floor is a mood though.

As for the song, I actually love it! It's a trashy bop but a bop's a bop, I even stan the f*rting zip sound at the end. I understand why it polarises people but at a very young age it was the first Madonna song I heard at the time of release as it was put out with 5 other Rebel Heart tracks (iirc) so it's had more time to bed in.

The video is so much cringier than I remember.

The song is a trashy bop. One of her worst singles but such a mood.

Same for me. It's not what I want from Madonna but I can take it for what it is. Ultimately it is meant to be a silly, throwaway bop (I hope).

I prefer this rougher edit of the song, I think it pops off a bit more, although I can see why it was polished up for the album:



The video... I like the premise of it and all the vibrant colours, but the way the cameos are edited in are so cringy. If they couldn't get the celebrities to the video shoot then they should just have left them out completely. Nicki Minaj edited into the TV screen is peak embarrassing, like even someone who features on the song couldn't be bothered to turn up.

When you had the 'Bad Blood' video released a few weeks before, it really does put this one to shame.

I never listen to this out of choice - only when I hear the album. It was fun for a short while but it really is trash and not even in a particularly fun way most of the time tearsmile.gif The video is one of her worst ever!
