Madge: ‘Only I can tell my story’
MADONNA has lashed out at ‘instant gratification’ culture amid reports that a biopic of her life is in the works.
Although the queen of pop has made no formal comment about the plans, which emerged yesterday, to make a film about her early life, she lost not time in taking to social media to brand anyone who takes on the project a ‘fool’.
Posting a throwback picture of herself at the height of her eighties fame, Madonna captioned the image: ‘Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story.
‘Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work.
‘This is a disease in our society.’
Many fans agreed with their idol, but one laid down the gauntlet, posting: ‘So why don’t you write or film your history for us?’
And another pointed out that Madonna hadn’t had a problem with portraying another woman’s life on film.
‘So, um, Evita? Didn’t you tell another woman’s story?’ they wrote.
