PeopleNews confirms Guy Ritchie as Director of MATM
The video for Britney Spears‘ forthcoming single will be directed by Guy Ritchie and will also feature the missus.
The mockney Lock Stock director will be behind the camera on the shoot for Me Against The Music, in which Madonna, who collaborates on the track, will play a typically modest role. Her Madge will play a leather-clad dominatrix with a string of semi-naked ‘bitches’ on leashes. It isn’t known if Britney will play one of those bitches.
The video will see Madonna playing the matriarch of a nightclub, who lures innocent scantily-clad Britney into a private room filled with other scantily-clad young women.
Fans will see parallels with the tongue-fest enjoyed by the two singers at the recent MTV Video Awards, when her Madge took the lead (and saliva) with both Britters and Christina Aguilera. Denials followed, however, with Madonna claiming since that it was the Hit Me Baby singer who instigated the lip-lock. ‘In all the rehearsals it was pecking,’ Mrs Ritchie swore. No doubt all the rehearsals for the forthcoming video will feature no leather or leashes. Considering how much Guy seemed to enjoy his wife’s performance at the MTV show, the Snatch director will have little trouble shooting, though cynics suggest it isn’t a good idea for the couple to work together again, ever, after Swept Away
