Martin And Paltrow Mock Madonna At Her Own Party

COLDPLAY star CHRIS MARTIN and his wife GWYNETH PALTROW teamed up with designer STELLA McCARTNEY to poke fun at famous pal MADONNA by mocking her AMERICAN LIFE hit at a recent party.

Madonna invited her famous chums to her Ashcombe Manor home in rural England to celebrate her fourth wedding anniversary with director GUY RITCHIE and asked them all to perform a song, a poem or a short acting performance.

Cheeky Martin and his wife rewrote the lyrics to American Life and renamed it AMERICAN WIFE - and performed it in the Ritchies' living room.

Madonna recalls, "Gwyneth did fantastic rap and Stella sang background vocals and, well, Chris played the piano."

Another musical interlude came when STING performed on a lute and Madonna herself performed a scene from Restoration play THE TOWN WENCH OR CHASTITY REWARDED.

The evening's entertainment was designed by Madonna to relive the days of party loving photography legend CECIL BEATON, who lived at Ashcombe Manor in the 1930s.
