WATCH: Madonna Performs “B*tch I’m Madonna” With Diplo on Tonight Show
Madonna performed her single “B*tch I’m Madonna” from her new album Rebel Heart on Thursday’s “The Tonight Show.” The singer began the performance backstage while putting the finishing touches on her makeup, and then headed into Diplo’s dressing room for a little party. Watch the video below.
After dragging her collaborator from his dressing room, Madonna starts dancing in the hallway with a few backup dancers and then makes her way to the front stage where host Jimmy Fallon and the audience are waiting. “We go hard or we go home. We gon do this all night long. We get freaky if you want, B*tch I’m Madonna. B*tch I’m Madonna, B*tch I’m Madonna,” she sang.
Nicki Minaj also appears on the track for a quick rap verse, but she wasn’t in the studio for the live performance. Earlier on “The Tonight Show,” Madonna performed a rendition of her song “Holiday” with Fallon and The Roots using classroom instruments.
When the Queen of Pop wasn’t singing, Madonna talked to Fallon about how much the music industry has changed since the 1980s. She explained, “The best part of the early days is that there’s no expectation. There’s no pressure. You’re free to do whatever you want. In those days, there was no social media, so you just had to take your cassette tapes out, go to all the clubs, take the subway — whatever. You know what I mean?” Watch Madonna performing “B*tch I’m Madonna” and “Holiday” below, and tell us what you think.
