Madonna Hoping That The Wondertwin Power Of Britney And Justin Will Help Her Sell Out Dodger Stadium
Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet Tour hits Dodger Stadium tonight, but despite earlier claims that the show would fill up every seat in Chavez Ravine by the time the concert rolled around, there are still tickets available as of this moment. (And it’s not just the cheap seats–a Ticketmaster spot-check revealed that $165 seats were, in fact, very much for sale.) So in a last-ditch effort to get butts into chairs, Madonna will announce this morning that both Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will appear at her show, in some effort to I guess complete the circle of life that she started when she made out onstage with Brit Brit at the 2003 Video Music Awards.
“They are going to be onstage performing with Madonna,” Seacrest said on KIIS-FM host DJ BoyToy Jesse’s Wednesday-afternoon show.
Of course, while Timberlake and Spears have both collaborated with Madge individually, the exes haven’t been spending much quality time together in recent years.
“If Justin and Britney end up on that stage with her…I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything quite like that before,” Seacrest said. (And he’s seen a lot—remember Celine Dion performing with hologram Elvis on American Idol?)
Do I! Anyway, I guess the time is right for me to confess that I’ve done–well, not a 180, but maybe a 125 on “4 Minutes,” the only song off Hard Candy that made any sort of impact beyond being piped into the Muzak at Kohl’s. I’m pretty sure it’s the song’s very close melodic relationship with the theme to The Price Is Right that did it for me:
I can still do without Timbaland’s “wikka wikka”-ing, though.
