Madonna doesn’t seem remotely pleased about the upcoming Blond Ambition film, a biopic that will delve into the pop icon’s formative years after moving to New York in 1978.
In fact, she thinks the project is a symptom of a more severe societal ill.
The script by Elyse Hollander topped 2016’s “Black List,” a roundup of the best as-yet-unproduced Hollywood screenplays.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Universal film will be set in the early ’80s, charting Madonna Louise Ciccone’s struggle to find success in New York’s dizzying club scene.
“Nobody knows what I have seen,” Madonna grandly laments on Instagram.
“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.”
This has not surprisingly resulted in an avalanche of middle-of-the-road commentary, everything from “Slay!” to “Haters gonna hate.”
No word yet on who’s set to star. Who’s your choice?
