Madonna’s Meerkat video premiere utterly failed, displayed a 500 error page instead

We’re not saying Jay Z’s Tidal crew was responsible
 but it seemed just a little opportune that Madonna’s scheduled premiere of her new music video on Meerkat miserably failed today.

Yesterday, Madonna teased that her “Ghosttown” video would debut in full on Meerkat at 10 a.m. PT. Her Meerkat page counted down the hours and minutes until the feed went live.

New York, are you ready?

We’re building Momentum: an all killer, no filler event this November.

However, when users visited the page right before the premiere, they were met with either a blank or 500 error page.

We contacted Meerkat for details, but CEO Ben Rubin tells us he’s not ready to comment just yet.

Madonna’s Twitter account did not explain the error, but did say the full video would be premiering tomorrow. We’re guessing this time, it’ll just be available on YouTube, VEVO and wherever music can be found. Or perhaps she’ll remember that thing she put her name on a week ago?

Update 4/7/15 at 7 p.m. ET: Meerkat CEO Ben Rubin tells us that “there [were] no scalability issues,” and a new stream is live for Madonna’s premiere tomorrow at the same time of 10 a.m. PT. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing this time!
