There's a new low-bar for celebrity cameos.
Madonna premiered the celeb-filled video for 'Bitch I'm Madonna' today, and while she technically did follow through on her promises of appearances by Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and more, apart from Ora, none of the others appeared to ever be in the same room as Madonna. 'Bad Blood' this is not.

The performance also features dancers Ayo Sato and Bambi, who were the ones who pulled off Madonna's cape at the Brits and sent her flying. Nice to know there were no hard feelings.
Also popping up are Chris Rock and Kanye, the former actually there, the latter not at all, as well as some of her kids and producer of the track Diplo (he of the 'Taylor Swift needs a booty' fund). All in all, it's pretty mental (and very similar to what she did with the song on Jimmy Fallon two months ago).
The video is a Tidal exclusive which means that unless you subscribe, you'll have to settle for dodgy versions that fans have managed to cobble together, so you'll see all three minutes and fifteen minutes of the hot mess below. And at least now we know that being a Tidal founder means getting to call in favours from your co-founders to be in your video, so we can probably expect more of this in the future.
