Tabloid Rumour: Kiss me baby one more time
Madonna and Britney Spears want to recreate their infamous on-stage snog.
Madge has asked Britney to sing with her on Wednesday at the first of six New York shows of her world tour, and insiders say the pair are on for a replay of their kiss.
The original came in August when they stunned a celebrity audience at the MTV Video Music Awards by suddenly locking lips during a duet of Madonna’s song Hollywood.
The pair loved the fuss it caused and have been eagerly discussing a repeat performance for the last month. But their plans suffered a setback last week when Britney hurt her knee falling during a video shoot in the Big Apple.
Britney has promised Madge she’ll do her best to be fighting fit for Wednesday’s gig.
A source told me: “Britney was delighted when Madonna asked her if she could join her on stage. They got loads of reaction the first time they kissed. She agreed to do it immediately. Their people have been faxing and e-mailing non-stop to sort things out. Everything was confirmed last week.
Britney was gutted when she had her fall. It was pretty serious. She had to have surgery and she will find out this week how long she’ll be out of action.But she’s promised to do her best to be there on the night at Madison Square Garden. She just won’t be able to do strenuous dancing.”
If doctors ban Britney from performing she has until September, when Madonna’s Re-Invention tour finishes, to sort out another date.
