Today In Madonna Marginalia: Her Maybe Set List, Like Two Seconds Of Her Video
Posted by Videoson 01/30/2012 at 11:16 AM
We’re inordinately proud of ourselves for being able to go more than one post before another crumb of MDNA news, but then Monday presented us with not one but two crumbs, which would normally count as some kind of supercrumb of news if they weren’t such tiny updates. So here they are, together in one post for your teensy enrichment.
A Super Bowl set list! Possibly?
CBS Sports’ hard-hitting investigative journalism–picking up a copy of NFL Magazine at, like, Hudson News in the airport–revealed the following promo blurb for Madonna’s performance:
“Though Madonna’s set list was not officially announced at press time, fans might expect her to give all her luvvin’, provide a ray of light and be in vogue with her music. The Super Bowl is almost a national holiday, after all.”
So that’s four hints at track titles: “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” which was practically required, then “Ray of Light,” “Vogue” and possibly “Holiday.” In other words, the setlist leak seems to have been real. (CBS’s post calls the last on those “En Vogue,” but come on. The track is almost certainly “Vogue,” unless Madonna has radically changed her stance on lovin’.) No mention was given of LMFAO, although we’re now starting to imagine and/or worry about a “Vogue”/”Sexy and I Know It’ mashup. (This is pure horrified speculation. Do not repost this. Please. Someone might actually make it happen.)
A smidge of the video!
Via Spin, via the TV, we’ve got like three seconds of the “Give Me All Your Luvin” video during an American Idol preview. Madonna wears a crucifix, Nicki and M.I.A. are actually in the video, thank God, there’s dancing, and this is still going to be the best thing that happens on Idol that Thursday.
