Motivated Madonna

Madonna is easy to get "in the mood", says her favourite DJ.

Paul Oakenfold is supporting the pop superstar on her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour and admits it's his job to match the pop superstar's incredible live energy.

He said: "Planning my set for a Madonna show is tough because she covers the whole spectrum. It's a white, black, gay, straight crowd, aged between 15 and 60.

"It's no good making it too underground. Despite the big venues it'll still be clubby and I'll get the crowd going. And it doesn't take much to get Madonna in the mood."

Oakenfold, 45, has supported the 50-year-old singer - who is set to play two shows at London's 02 arena in July - before and insists it's a "privilege" sharing the same bill as her.

He told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Her fans adore her. I remember we did four sell-out shows in Buenos Aires in front of 80,000 people each night. It's a privilege for crowds like that."

The DJ is also producing three new songs for Madonna's upcoming 'Greatest Hits' release.

He said: "We've been in New York working on the tunes. She's a truly lovely lady, but she's the boss so everyone will just have to wait for the new stuff."
