Madonna teams up with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj in 'Give Me All Your Luvin'.'
Some people might think that Madonna teaming up with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. is like finding an Odd Future CD hidden in your mom's car -- you're terrified and confused, but also curious and intrigued. "Give Me All Your Luvin'," the first single from Madonna's upcoming 12th studio album, MDNA, is a youthful, peppy anthem, proving once again that no matter how many detours Madge might take, she's never veered off the track as the Queen of Pop.
Dressed as funky cheerleaders, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. call out for their team captain: "L-U-V Madonna!/Y-O-U, you wanna!" Madonna busts down her house door decked in a trench and sunglasses as she pushes a baby carriage through a small-town set. Football players fall over themselves to worship her every move as Madge strips down into a two-piece and fishnets, leaving us all wondering how the hell this woman is over 50. Madge leads Nicki and M.I.A. to a party where they sport their finest '80s-inspired Madonna gear (#blondwigsFTW) as the two hip-hop stars impressively hold their own next to the icon.

"Give Me All Your Luvin'" harks back to the sound that made Madonna stick -- solid bubblegum pop with a healthy dose of camp and fun. And while we're sure the football theme might have something to do with that little halftime show she's planning at the Super Bowl this weekend, it also speaks to a larger idea: Madonna's never been the cute and innocent homecoming queen, but those wholesome, all-American football players still wanna kick it with her. That's talent... and she's honed it to perfection.
