Hey Madonna! Toni Basil called. She wants her second-rate song back. What the hell? I have no idea what Madonna is trying to accomplish here. Is “Give Me All Your Lovin” a football themed song released especially for her Superbowl half time appearance this weekend? Because this piece of retro-80s fluff is by no means radio-ready.
If it’s promotion for her Superbowl appearance…well then. It still sucks. In the video, Madonna prances around in a skimpy outfit (gotta say…she looks DAMN good at 53) with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A as rapping cheerleaders. M.I.A looks particularly out of place. I kept waiting for her to pull out a machine gun and start f*cking sh*t up. That would have ruled.
What the hell with Madonna holding a baby doll up to her breast? Look at her! She can still shock after nearly 30 years. Erm. It’s not even that I hate Madonna. I kind of like her. But that video? Uhm. NO. If that was supposed to be ironic…or something–I didn’t get it. (eta: I see the visual nods to her past, but this video is such a muddled mess, whatever she’s trying to say here isn’t very clear)
A few seconds of the video premiered on American Idol last night, which hardly seemed worth the promo. We’ll see if Madonna can impress during her 12 minute half-time set. I hope she’s practicing her lip-syncing.
The divine Ms. Kelly Clarkson will show how it’s done without any bells and whistles when she sings the National Anthem before the big game. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will sing “America The Beautiful”
