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.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
