Madonna made her directorial debut Monday night at the Cinema Society and Dolce and Gabbana hosted screening of her new film, “Filth and Wisdom,” which does not shy away from Madonna’s long history of working with provocative material.
Her new feature film includes cross-dressing, S&M and stripping, but Madonna had tamer topics on her mind when she talked to Access Hollywood about Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and daughter Lourdes.
Although she’s in the director’s seat for “Filth and Wisdom,” Madonna hasn’t forgotten about her roots in pop music — or the younger pop stars who look up to her.
In one scene of the film, Madonna uses Britney Spears’ iconic hit, “Baby One More Time” as the soundtrack for a ballet dancer doing a striptease.
“That’s my wink and my smile to Britney Spears, whom I love,” Madonna told Access.
And Spears is not the only young pop star Madonna was breaking news about. She said her “Sticky & Sweet” world tour has a few more guest surprises in the works.
“(Justin Timberlake is) going to make a guest appearance probably in Los Angeles,” she told Access. “Pharrell came on stage Saturday, which was great, and I’m hoping Kanye (West) is going to join us in Chicago or Miami.”
The “Sticky & Sweet” tour has eight major costumes changes for Madonna, involving 36 different designers and filling 30 wardrobe trunks, but these fashion extravagances are not for everybody in Madonna’s household.
Madonna says that daughter Lourdes has some rules when it comes to what she can wear.
“She wears some of my clothes… she can’t wear whatever she wants,” Madonna said. “She has to wear belts. I don’t want to see her underwear hanging out of her pants.”
