Julia Garner als Madonna (Dutch news)

Volgens ingewijden van Variety is Julia Garner namelijk dé favoriet voor de rol als Madonna in de biografische film die de zangeres zelf gaat regisseren. De actrice zou de uitverkorene zijn om de rol van Madonna te vertolken en zou uit een groot aantal kandidaten zijn verkozen. Zelfs het contract zou Julia al zijn aangeboden.
 
In de film volg je Madonna’s jonge jaren als muzikant, terwijl ze zich ontwikkelt tot ultieme queen of pop. Als Julia Garner inderdaad deze rol op zich gaat nemen, zien we haar op een manier zoals we haar in Inventing Anna nog niet eerder hebben gezien. De rol als Madonna vereist namelijk naast acteertalent, ook enige dans- en zangskills.

Julia Garner Offered Madonna Role in Universal Biopic (EXCLUSIVE)

“Inventing Anna” actress Julia Garner has been offered the role of Madonna in a forthcoming biopic about the pop icon, sources familiar with the project told Variety.

Garner has emerged the favorite from over a dozen candidates, one insider added, and has for months been speculated as a frontrunner for the part — a performance Madonna will shepherd herself as director. Garner’s team is considering and expected to accept the offer, said another source.

The film is set up at Universal Pictures, and will follow the early days of the oft-controversial artist and queen of perpetual reinvention. Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley won the script in a multi-studio bidding war, and Amy Pascal is attached as a producer.

Central Saint Martins’s 2022 Grads Treat London—and Madonna—to a Blast of Colorful Optimism

There was a double-decker runway, 115 student collections, and Madonna in the front row. Whatever horrors are assailing the world, the Central Saint Martins fashion class of 2022 managed to trounce adversity: Their graduation show was a wildly uplifting carnival of mobile sculpture, pinging color, and Gen Z magical thinking.

Madge had manifested because her son Rocco Ritchie has reportedly enrolled in one of the many CSM fashion courses. There are a lot of them. When this cohort entered the school everyone knew they were going to face a feared internal selection jury, and potentially the chop, before making the press show, but now there’s been an egalitarian revolution. Brought on by Covid and student discontent around equality and inclusion, the college has permitted every student their runway space. It seemed to only up the collective ante on compressing their fantasies, ethics, and experiments with techniques into three exuberant looks.

Madonna makes surprise appearance at college graduation show

Madonna and FKA Twigs were spotted front row at the Central Saint Martins (CSM) undergraduate fashion show on Tuesday. The prestigious art school — known for producing renowned designers Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo — held its annual show in London’s Kings Cross area, where students exhibited their graduate collections to a crowd of friends, family, buyers and fashion editors.
 
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Madonna arrived in a Moschino studded leather jacket and boombox-shaped bag by Midnight Studios. While FKA Twigs embodied cyberpunk chic in a pair of spiral, serpent printed hoops by independent jewelers Panconesi and dystopian Gareth Pugh platform lace-up boots.

Song You Need: Madonna and Sickick’s “Frozen on Fire” is an undeniable heater

Madonna is an undeniably terrible steward of her own legacy — you can’t really be a groundbreaking pop icon in multiple decades without being something of an anti-nostalgist. The way she’s treated Sickick’s TikTok-viral trap remix of her immortal Ray Of Light-era single “Frozen” is a perfect example of this: Rather than let it simply sit as a strange revival of the original, she gave the remix an official release and added verses by 070 Shake and Fireboy DML, sharing videos for each.
