Mike Tyson films Iconic video

Mike Tyson’s career as an actor has landed him a special appearance alongside one of pop music’s most celebrated icons.

During last weekend’s annual Comic-Con, the former heavyweight boxing champ dished to TVLine.com on details surrounding his cameo in Madonna’s forthcoming music video, 'Iconic.'

'I’m in a cage. I’m a hostage. I’m chained. It’s just crazy. I’m naked. I just look like a savage,' he stated before adding, 'but it looks intense, and it’s like ‘whoa.’ But when I [shot] it it didn’t seem that intense. But then you watch it and go, ‘Whoa.’ It looks like one of those [books] National Geographic or something… I need to be tamed.'

While Tyson stated that he doesn’t know if he’s 'going to get some slack' from critics for the clip, it appears recording his vocals for the track - which is featured on the Material Girl’s latest album 'Rebel Heart' - was also an 'intense' experience. Earlier this year Tyson explained to Rolling Stone how his role in the song came to be during a visit to one of Madonna’s recording sessions.

'I didn't know what the hell I was going there for. I'm just there having a good time and hanging out with Madonna,' he recalled during the interview. 'She has her producer there and I go into the studio and I didn't know if she wanted me to talk or rap.'

'I just go in there and start talking. I'm talking about my life and things that I have endured. I'm saying some really crazy stuff. It was really intense.'

More than likely this is for the tour

I wonder if this is going to be used as a background film for the concert or if it's an actual commercial promotion for a fourth single. I've been thinking it would be wise for M to release a fourth single timed with the launch of the tour. But I'd thought it would be "Joan of Arc" or "Devil Pray", both have more commercial appeal. Either way, a fourth single would be nice. She hasn't released more than three singles since Confessions...

Is this an official music video or is it just backdrop for the concert performance? I always assumed there would be a fourth single to coincide with the launch of the tour in September, but I wasn't anticipating it would be 'Iconic'. I was thinking 'Devil Pray' or 'Joan of Arc'. I wonder when we'll get more info? She has been quoting that song recently on her Instagram...

I can't wait to see the video!
