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 the Material Mom has tamer topics on her mind when she talked to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush 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 Britney is not the only young pop star that Madonna was breaking news about. The Material Mom 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. “Pharell 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, contributed to by 36 different designers — filling 30 wardrobe trunks — but these fashion extravagances are not for everybody in Madonna’s household.
The Material Mom says that daughter Lourdes has some rules when it comes to what she can wear.
