This is the week of Madonna, if you haven't noticed.
Her movie "W.E." opens today in limited release, she's performing at the Super Bowl on Sunday, and when she's not promising to keep her clothes on during her act, she's also releasing new music from her upcoming album, "M.D.N.A."
Fans got a preview of the video for her track "Give Me All Your Luvin'" during "American Idol" on Thursday, and on Friday, Madge released the video in full. The single itself, a version of which leaked in November, officially premiered on radio Friday morning.
(Note: Things get a touch explicit - as in, someone flips the bird - after the two minute mark, so shield your eyes or the eyes of anyone else watching who's easily offended.)
"Fans can make you famous, a contract can make you rich, the press can make you a superstar, but only luv can make you a player," the video begins.
From there, with the help of a fawning football team and a crew of cheerleaders headed by Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., Madonna gets all the love she needs: Jackets are laid down so she doesn't step in (golden) rain puddles; players leap in front of bullets fired at the star; still more hoist and carry her wherever her heart desires; and they're prepared to catch her when she falls.
By the end of the clip, Madonna declares it a touchdown. Do you agree?
