OK, we take back every negative thing we’ve ever said about Madonna in recent years.
We’ll admit, we were underwhelmed by her last two albums. Neither felt very inspired or innovative for the woman who was supposed to be the reigning Queen of Pop.
But the music monarch just released the music video for “Living For Love,” the first single from her upcoming Rebel Heart album and one thing is very, very clear: The queen is back. With a vengeance. And, no, she doesn’t need anyone’s help in reclaiming her throne.
Unlike the lead singles off her last two albums (“Four Minutes” featuring Justin Timberlake, and “Gimme All Your Luvin’” featuring Nicki Minaj and MIA), “Living For Love” features just Madonna doing what she does best: kicking ass and taking names. Literally.
Our Lady M harkens back to her days as a Spanish matador, dressed in a scarlet red bullfighting uniform and beating the shit out of her hot male dancers wearing Maleficent-inspired horns on their heads.
Seriously, there’s nothing we don’t love about this video. The music. The lyrics. The dancing. The costumes. It’s pure pop perfection.
Check out the fierceness below. And get ready, boys, because we have a feeling this is only the beginning of a long-awaited Madonna renaissance.
The 57th annual Grammy Awards are almost here and aside from all the trophies, there are an awful lot of performances to take in. Per usual, we’ve got a slew of intriguing collaborations (Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige! Beck and Chris Martin) and one that goes beyond “intriguing”) (Kanye West and Rihanna with some guy named Paul McCartney). What are you tuning in to see?
We’ve compiled a list of all the performers who have been announced so far, and we’d like to hear from you. Which of these performances are you most excited to see on Sunday, Feb. 8?
Two days ahead of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Madonna has released the music video for her latest single, “Living for Love.”
The 56-year-old pop icon, who is set to perform at Sunday’s show, transforms into a fierce and sexy matador in the clip, which sees the Queen of Pop playing a bullfighter as her dancers wear bedazzled bull masks on their heads (while flaunting their bulging biceps, natch).
The video debuted on Snapchat on Thursday for an exclusive 24 hours and is now available on the singer’s Vevo channel for all your unlimited viewing.
In addition to dancing her butt off with some seriously acrobatic moves, Madonna is pictured sucking her thumb and twirling her red silk scarf all while maintaining control over her hunky minotaurs.
“Man is the cruelest animal,” reads a Friedrich Nietzsche quote at the end of the clip. “At tragedies, bullfights, and crucifixions he has felt best on earth; and when he invented hell for himself that was his very heaven.”
Amazon.com lists the following tracklisting for the 25 track Super Deluxe edition of Rebel Heart:
