Working For The Weekend singer Max modelled alongside Madonna in a 2010 advertising campaign for Dolce & Gabbana. He recalls how the Queen of Pop seized control of the shoot – and him – to have things her way.

Up and coming singer Max has peeled back the covers on his secret professional relationship with Madonna.

The 28-year-old singer – full name Maxwell George “Max” Schneider – was just 18 years old when he was thrown in to the spotlight alongside now 62-year-old Madonna.

The pair starred in a string of campaign photographs for Italian fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana, which saw Madge take on the role of a housewife in a series of artistic photos.

High fashion snaps saw Max and Madonna striking a pose as they pretended to dance together – and other images saw them carrying shopping down a street.

Now 10-years-later, Max has explained the slightly odd relationship he had while working with music icon Madonna.

And it appears she decided to call the shots when it came to their dancing scenes.

He recalled: “By the end of the day, she said, ‘Cancel the other shoot, just bring me and Max on the street and we’re just going to carry groceries’.”

The subsequent photo shoot was also captured by paparazzi on location of the campaign.

The snaps that emerged threw Max in to the middle of a media frenzy.

He said: “Next day, I woke up and the paper said, ‘Who’s Madonna’s new foetus boyfriend?’ The day was this surreal hang with Madonna.”


Max has since hung up his modelling shoes and is now a focused musician himself.

His new single, Working For The Weekend was released on Friday – while his upcoming album, Colour Vision, is due for release on 18 September.
