MADONNA is used to being ferried around the world in complete luxury.
When she is in LA she relaxes in the comfort of a £300,000 Mercedes Maybach limo and her lavish private jet is on stand-by 24 hours a day. Even her mountain bike for tackling London’s traffic is top-of-the-range.
Yet the Queen of Pop will delight legions of Britain’s boy racers with an MTV Pimp My Ride-style video for next single Sorry.
Madge is ditching her fleet of fancy motors to transform a rusty old banger into the ultimate blingmobile.
With UK Pimp My Ride host and Radio 1 DJ TIM WESTWOOD making a cameo appearance on the promo, a team of experts will take a Ford Cortina and turn it into a high-spec speedster, just like my graphics boffins have drawn above.
A source said: “Madonna really loves the MTV show. She wanted to do a video with a rags-to-riches story, taking a battered old British banger and turning it into something special.
“Her record company contacted the MTV producers behind Pimp My Ride and they came up with a storyboard and car for the video.”
Madge — who had a big hit with Don’t Cry For Me Argentina — has used a ‘cameo star in a car’ on a video before.
ALI G was her limo driver in the video for her No1 single Music in 2000.
The new song will be remixed by the PET SHOP BOYS after a personal plea from her Madgesty. She bumped into NEIL TENNANT and CHRIS LOWE at a party last year and told them she thought “they were brilliant”.
The Pet Shop Boys recently signed up Little Britain stars MATT LUCAS and DAVID WALLIAMS to appear in the video of a single from their forthcoming brilliant album Fundamental.
Having the two comedy kings associated with a tune produced by legendary hitmaker TREVOR HORN will be a little Brit special

Wasn't it said that Madonna doesn't even own a TV?
Originally posted by MTV Spears is still everything to everyone (...) The thing about being the first is that there isn't really anything — or anyone — to compete against. So let others sweat the small stuff; Britney's only concerned with being Britney. Now and forever.
I don't know if they are planning on incorporating that into the video or not. Obviously even THIS is pure speculation, but the rumor I heard from several reliable sources is that the video for Sorry will include roller-dancing (yes that means dancing on roller skates!).
I think this idea is more likely since it goes with the theme of this Madonna "era" being related to the 70s. Also I have seen screen caps of a rehearsal video which was apparently set to the music of Sorry including a female stand-in, along with a message that Madonna will be shooting her scenes mid-January...
I hope this is true, I think if she can work some sort of storyline in with the roller-dancing it will be amazing!
