(Newser) – Christopher Ciccone’s perfectly timed book, Life with My Sister Madonna, may have had a world-famous ghost writer: the Material Girl herself. In a bid to sell concert tickets, Madonna "actually ghost-wrote parts of it with him,” an insider tells the New York Post. “That's why there's nothing too devastating in Chris's book."

In addition, to capitalize on her reported involvment in the meltdown of Alex Rodriguez's marriage, Madonna has "ordered three A-Rod Yankee jerseys she'll wear in the finale of her upcoming shows. All of this was created to sell tickets for her tour, which hasn't been selling so well."
