Madonna, writer, director and star of the movie of her life

Los Angeles (USA) / Writer, director and protagonist: Madonna is going to take on all those roles in a film that she will shoot with Universal Studios about the five decades of her musical career. The artist has overcome the coronavirus and recently celebrated her 62nd birthday.

The project, confirmed this Tuesday by Hollywood studios, will narrate the life of the artist since, in the 1970s, she arrived in New York City and immersed herself in the “underground” cultural scene, until she met the mass success in which it is maintained with infinite reinventions.

“There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell them than me. It is essential to share the roller coaster of my life with my voice and my vision, ”Madonna wrote in a statement.

It is still unknown when the production of the new film will begin and who will be part of the cast or will play Madonna in the different stages of her life.

The “Material Girl” singer has made it clear that her songs are going to have a lot of weight on the film.

“The focus of this movie is always going to be the music. Music has kept me moving and art has kept me alive, ”said Madonna.

To write the script, the singer works with Diablo Cody, winner of the Oscar for “Juno” (2007), with whom she has also anticipated the project on social networks.

Last week, during a live on Instagram, Madonna claimed that the plot will document her arrival as an artist in New York in the early 1980s and her interactions with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Martin Burgoyne.

She will also address her award-winning performance on the big screen with the film “Evita,” and meeting Andrew Lloyd Webber while adapting the musical.

Over five decades, Madonna has sold more than 330 million copies worldwide, holds the record for the most successful female artist, and has been cited numerous times by celebrities and singers of later generations.

Celebrating your 62nd birthday

Madonna celebrated last August, in style and without a mask, her 62nd birthday in Jamaica with her 27-year-old boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, and five of their six children.

Madonna, who has overcome the coronavirus, chose the Caribbean island to celebrate her birthday at a party in which music was the protagonist.

At the party and in a tight long dress with tropical motifs and being very affectionate with her young boyfriend, Madonna danced as best she could – she is recovering from a knee injury – to the rhythm of a Jamaican music band that delighted the artist and her relatives .

The images published on Instagram caused some controversy on social networks, especially because none of those who appeared in them wore a mask or, of course, kept any type of social security distancing.

Jamaica, which like much of the Caribbean region suffers from a second “wave” of COVID-19, has had to resume the health security measures that were imposed at the beginning of the pandemic in March.

In the midst of all this, the images also show Madonna kissing with her boyfriend and with her children Lola, 23; Mercy, 14; and the twins Stella and Esther, 7, who are also joined by David Banda, 14.

The only one of Madonna’s children not to appear at the party is Rocco Ritchie, who turned 20 on August 11.

Local Jamaican media have also pointed out that the group stayed at the Round Hill and Villas hotel in Montego, a resort located on the north coast of Jamaica. (September 16, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
