It’s been nine years since Madonna and Britney Spears shared that much-hyped — but in hindsight, fairly tame — lip-lock at the VMAs, but it looks like Madge wants to go back in time. Or, more likely, try and get more attention for her new album.
It all started with an innocent tweet from Britney, who said she loved Madonna’s new album. Her Madgesty only joined Twitter last week — in what was supposed to be a one-day-only treat for fans — but even she couldn’t deny the addiction of 140 characters. Madonna responded to Spears’ tweet in her typical provocative way:
@britneyspears please come on stage and kiss me again. I miss you!!
Britney replied with a naughty, “Tempting…,” which prompted Madonna to inquire, “Are you gonna make me work for this?” Britney coyly tweeted back, “Why of course!”
Poor Christina Aguilera. Page Six pointed out that the Voice mentor, who was also involved in that three-way smooching stunt, was not part of the Twitter conversation. Madonna and Brit’s banter will undoubtedly have many wondering if the two are planning to hook up (professionally, of course) again soon, but I don’t think so. Madge just wanted to bring attention to her new album — and mission accomplished. She may be new to Twitter, but she’s an old pro when it comes to promoting herself.
