Madonna and photographer/filmmaker David LaChapelle won’t be teaming up on the video for her single "Hung Up." The pair confirmed to us yesterday that "artistic differences" foiled the collaboration. The pair previous collaborated on a photoshoot for Rolling Stone Magazine in 1998 and the cover of the Video Collection 93:99."
Just Wednesday, at an H&M/Interview party for his film "Romeo and Juliet," LaChapelle told us, "It’s going to be major. It’s just the hottest Madonna song."
Yesterday, his rep explained that LaChapelle "wanted to approach the video in a documentary style, like he did in ‘Rize’ [his movie about ghetto dancers]. Madonna didn’t see it the same way.’"
Some claimed both talents turned diva. "Madonna had to control every little thing," said one tipster. "She wanted to be shot so she looked very young."
The 47-year-old goddess certainly looks youthful on the Steven Klein-shot cover of her new CD, "Confessions From the Dance Floor."
