Did Madonna write her own music

If anyone can tell Madonna’s story, it’s the Queen Of Pop herself. Last week Madonna confirmed that she wrote the script for her own film biography in collaboration with producer Diablo Cody (Juno). Now the singer has announced that she will also act as a director.

In a statement to Variety, Madonna said she wanted to be able to portray her life and career on her own terms. "I want to convey the incredible journey that life as an artist, musician, dancer - as a person - has taken me to find my way in this world," she commented.

Madonna and New York

Madonna also assured fans that her music would be the driving force behind the as-yet-untitled film. “The focus of this film will always be on the music,” continued the 62-year-old. “Music has always driven me and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell them than me. It is important to tell the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision. "

Madonna's exploration of the New York scene and how it produced her "Vogue" hit is likely to be one of the music-related storylines portrayed in the bio. There will also be scenes about the time with Andrew Lloyd Webber. For her "Evita" performance, Madonna received a Golden Globe.

While the singer will play an important role in creating the biopic, it is unlikely that she will actually appear in the film itself. The role of the young Madonna has yet to be cast. The Emmy winner Julia Garner should be in conversation for it.

It is not the first time that Madonna is sitting in the director's chair. She made her directorial debut in 2008 with the British comedy drama "Filth and Wisdom". Her second directing project came in 2011 with "W.E.", a historical film about the affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. Both were not received particularly positively.
