If you’re one of the 204 million people who have watched Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, featuring approximately 2,508 celebs with a side of shade thrown Katy Perry‘s way, you’ll agree that Madonna’s latest project is a serious, and not so sly, dig at T-Swizzle.

Her Madge-sty announced she is “werking” on a new music video, suitably called “Bitch, I’m Madonna”, on Instagram last night, showing up Tay with a cameo lineup including Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, and, you guessed it, Katy. 

Mimicking Tay’s Kendrick Lamar “Bad Blood” remix, Madonna’s new tune will feature Nicki Minaj. On her Instagram announcement Madonna wrote, “Video coming soon! Just tryin to make it perfect for all of you.” She continued, “We are hard werking bitches! #bitchimmadonna.”

The teaser pic for the video is also conveniently similar to Swifty’s, matching the fierce colour palette of red, black and white and using a font type which looks like it’s been a tad murdered. If this isn’t a dig, then perhaps we need to check if the Pope’s catholic.

Unlike Taylor’s video, which made us die a little bit with anticipation, Madonna isn’t making us wait very long for the clip. “Bitches its coming Tomorrow!!” she wrote on Instagram with a little teaser clip. “Can’t mess with this lucky star!!!! BitchImMadonna Premiering Wednesday morning!!”

We can’t wait. Things are sure to get bitchy.
