Britney Spears and Madonna have reunited again, at least on the cover of Out magazine. Pop music’s crème de la crème will share the April cover of the popular gay magazine’s first-ever “Ladies We Love” issue, marking the publication’s first dual-cover release.
While Spears teamed up with photographer Ruven Afanador for her shoot, Madonna’s photo spread dates back to the entertainer’s early career, with previously unseen shots by photographer Richard Corman from 1982. In a post on Out.com, the folks at the mag said that they wanted to shine light on female icons popular among the gay community, writing, “We’re dedicating our entire April issue to the women who inspire, scandalize, educate, and excite us — in a different way than they excite the other boys.”
The “Ladies We Love” issue hits newsstands on March 29, the same day as Spears’ Femme Fatale hits stores. However, Out is giving fans an early look at their feature with the pop princess by posting the full Spears interview and photo shoot on their website on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
News of Britney’s Out magazine spread comes days after the “Hold It Against Me” singer’s feature in V magazine made its way to the Internet. In the issue, Spears opens up about the musical direction of Femme Fatale.
“I like music that makes you move and connects with your soul. I like to feel inspired right away when I listen to new music,” she says. “I always have songs being sent to me from new artists and producers from all over the world, which is really cool. From there I just follow my heart.”
