NEW Video: Madonna - Give It 2 Me  


Here's the official Madonna sanctioned video for "Give It To Me" the second single from 'Hard Candy'.

I was waiting to post it until I found an HQ version that didnt' get deleted every five minutes.

Did you know YouTube now offers the option to watch some videos in HQ? Unfortunately to do so you have to go on their site as it's currently not an option on embeded videos. It's a pretty neat idea though.

CLICK HERE to get the option to watch it in HQ by clicking on "watch in high quality".

As for the video...loved the song from day one but I'm a bit disapointed by the video. It's cool and all but I was expecting a bit more for a follow up to "4 Minutes", hope the next one's better.
