Madonna Recruits Spears for Taped Performance, Plus Tour and Biography Spoilers

July 8, 2008 10:46 AM ET

Britney Spears will share the stage with Madonna during the Material Girl's Sticky and Sweet Tour, except this time via video. Spears will reportedly shoot a video performance this week that will air during Madonna's concert, Access Hollywood reports. Both Madonna's publicist and Spears' manager confirmed the report. The exact content of the video is a "secret" at least until October 4th, when the U.S. leg of the tour launches in East Rutherford, New Jersey. However, one Madonna Website supposedly learned the set list and details for the tour, so you can try and pin Spears' appearance into one of the spoilers here.

Additionally, details about the book by Madonna's brother Christopher Ciccone, titled Life With My Sister Madonna, have emerged. The biography seems to be pretty scathing, as Ciccone discusses his sister's drug use at length, as well as her rocky relationships with husbands Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
