Queen of pop Madge wants to kick-start troubled pal’s career


Britney Spears is being lined-up to join Madonna on the road.

The pair are already recording a video to form part of Madge’s Sticky And Sweet tour, which kicks off next month.

But now Madonna, 49 – who shared a snog with Brit at the MTV Music Awards in 2003 – is also hoping to convince the 26-year-old to come on stage.

‘They are recording a video together that will provide the backdrop for part of Madonna’s show,’ says a source. ‘It’s hoped that Madonna can help Britney get back to her old self. Appearing with Madonna would really kick-start her career again.’

Meanwhile, in new biography Life With My Sister Madonna, Christopher Ciconne, 47, claims his sister once kissed Gwyneth Paltrow, 35, at a New Year’s Eve party.

‘The book is a warts-and-all account,’ a source tells The Sun. ‘Chris was there for all the key moments in Madonna’s life. There is no one better placed to tell the real story behind Madonna’s public image.’
