Here are the headlines:
Nicky Minaj and M.I.A. are cheerleaders.
She’s pushing a pram.
American Footballers feature heavily and help her walk sideways on a wall.
She is strutting around in a leotard looking amazing much to the Daily Mail’s horror.
Her hair is fantastic.
But what is the most brilliant thing of all is that she’s not done something “outrageous” to try and outdo our current flock of young, female pop stars who have been touted as knocking Madonna from the Queen of Pop throne. She’s not reacted in the way we may have suspected she could have done after a slightly curt appearance on the Graham Norton show.
She’s just done something really fun. And most importantly, really good.
It’s not try hard, it’s not aggressive, there’s no crotch-grabbing, crucifix-humping shock antics. She’s played it brilliantly well. She’s just being an excellent pop star. But of course she would. We shouldn’t expect anything less.
Face it she’s Madonna.
