“Who do you think you are?” Madonna bellowed into the mic during her performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
At this point, I’m not really sure.
Her Diplo-assisted performance of “B—h, I’m Madonna,” off of her latest album Rebel Heart, inspired a few head scratches as she gallivanted around The Tonight Show studio in thick gold chains and a dollar sign-emblazed jacket (in which Philly’s own Diplo had a matching one).
From the sock puppet to the air thrusts atop Fallon’s desk, the whole thing played like an identity crisis. The 56-year-old’s strained dance moves over lackluster dance beats resembled more a gimmicky act than one of innovation.
She sounded all right though.
Diplo’s involvement didn’t extend much beyond a cameo dressing room appearance — where a bunch of women just happened to be dancing — and maintaining his position in the onstage DJ booth.
