Fresh from the release of her “Bitch I’m Madonna” video the Queen of Pop has folks talking again, this time for teaming up with former pro-boxer/artist Mike Tyson!
The forthcoming video has been filmed and is believed to accompany the song “Iconic,” again from Madonna’s Rebel Heart album.
It looks set to rival even Rihanna’s BBHMM in the controversial stakes, as it will show Mike chained up and naked in a cage!
“It’s just intense,” Mike told TVLine.
“I’m in a cage. I’m a hostage. I’m chained. I’m naked. I look like a savage. When I [shot] it it didn’t seem that intense. But then you watch it and go, ‘Whoa.’”
Mike has met Madonna before and even gone on a double-date to the theater with her, back in her Sean Penn days.
The Madonna video is not the only project Mike has up his sleeve. He is making season two of the animated TV series Mike Tyson Mysteries.
His character in the show – voiced by Mike and named after him, too – is a retired boxer who raises carrier pigeons that bring him messages of mysteries to solve. The first season has been successful and is often compared to Scooby-Doo in style!
Madonna is currently marking three decades of pop stardom with her massive Rebel Heart tour, and has defied critics by selling out tickets to the New Zealand leg of her tour in seconds. She will perform there in early ’16 and fans are eagerly anticipating the show, as it will be her first performance there.
Madonna is also trending on social media at the moment, as today marks 30 years since she performed at Live Aid. Back in her Holiday days, Madonna helped to raise $200 million for African famine relief with other rock royalty including Queen and The Who.
