Gossip about the girls, Madonna and Britney, and since it’s coming from the UK’s outlandish tabloid the Sun, readers beware. But it’s so juicy. Britney’s video contribution to Madonna’s upcoming Sticky & Sweet tour, the rag says, will surpass their 2003 kiss in sexual sizzle. The duo’s new act will be broadcast on 20-foot screens on stage and set against a mix of Madonna’s “Beat Goes On” and Britney’s “Piece of Me.” The action begins with the two being unwrapped from mummy-like bondage costumes by male dancers in leather thongs. Voila! Pop stars in leather bondage pants and knee-high boots… gy-rat-ing. Does it deserve an X rating?

It is classic Madonna, probably the raunchiest stuff she has ever done. It leaves nothing to the imagination and it will be very controversial.
