Rocketman director up for doing a Madonna biopic next: ‘She’s extraordinary’

Director Dexter Fletcher has said he would be up for shooting a film about Madonna’s life.

Of course, the filmmaker already has a track record for rock biopics.

As well as this month’s Rocketman, which details the life of Elton John, he directed part of last year’s blockbuster Queen/Freddie Mercury picture, Bohemian Rhapsody.

We spoke to Dexter last month ahead of the London premiere of Rocketman earlier this month, and asked him: ‘Would you consider a return to the rock biopic genre – and would you please do Madonna or Cher’?

‘If I was to tackle any other icon…’

Dexter replied: ‘I’d do Madonna! That sounds like a real rollercoaster ride! It would be extraordinary.’

Asked if thought of a film on the Material Girl’s life had occurred to him before, he said: ‘No… no it hasn’t. I don’t know how happy she’d be about that [idea]… But what an extraordinary life that would be.

‘If I was to tackle any other icon like that, it would be her. She’s extraordinary.’

‘Nobody knows what I know’

Repots circulated in 2017 that a Universal biopic of Madonna called Blonde Ambition was in the works.

Madonna, who returns in 2019 with new album Madame X, seemingly addressed the rumors on Instagram at the time.

She wrote: ‘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.’

Rocketman is out now in UK cinemas and hits US screens on Friday 31 May.

The movie, which stars Taron Egerton, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard, has scored highly positive reviews.

Eurovision Song Contest Watched by More Than 180 Million Viewers

The Eurovision Song Contest, which featured a controversial appearance by Madonna, was watched by 182 million viewers across 40 markets, the European Broadcasting Union said Tuesday.

Madonna’s appearance fueled intense interest, both in the run-up to her performance, which was not formally approved by Eurovision organizers until the last minute, and in her set. Sporting her newest fashion accessory, a pirate-like eyepatch, she opened with “Like a Prayer,” which some viewers complained she sang off-pitch. Also, two of her backup dancers, their arms draped around each other, had an Israeli and a Palestinian flag sewn on the back of their jackets, which an insider told Variety was meant as a message of peace.

Introducing new team member: Dave

 

Hola,

my name is Dave Crombeen.

I became a Madonna fan back in 1984. I was hooked instantly once I heard the Like a Virgin cassette at a friend’s house. I was seven years old at the time and throughout my youth I kept hearing ‘it’s just a phase’. I wanted Madonna, Madonna and nothing but Madonna. Bought her albums, singles, started to collect and my finger never left the REC button of my VCR.

Why Madonna?
I can relate every feeling and emotion to a Madonna song, she truly is the soundtrack to my life. Her voice touches me and I love her kick-ass attitude. I cannot imagine a life without Madonna.

The fun part of being a Madonna fan is meeting so many great people, some have become really good friends.

I was lucky to see Madonna live a number of times and I just can’t get enough:

Blond Ambition Tour 1x
Drowned World Tour 1x
Reinvention Tour 3x
Confessions Tour 3x
Sticky & Sweet ’08 3x
Sticky & Sweet ’09 2x
MDNA Tour 5x
Rebel Heart Tour 7x

Medellin video premiere London.

 

Favorite album: Erotica
Favorite song: Paradise (Not For Me)
Favorite music video: Bad Girl
Favorite tour: MDNA
Favorite item: Signed MDNA Skin poster

Madonna talks about ‘Crave’ in radio interview – listen

Madonna may be a chart-topping pop star and international sex symbol, but she’s also the mother of six children, ranging in age from 22 to 6.

During an interview with Radio.com, the 60-year-old superstar shared an adorable story about her youngest children, 6-year-old twins twin girls Estere and Stelle, while promoting her upcoming album Madame X.

As Madonna explains, being the child of Madonna can be a bit tiresome for her children when it comes to fans asking about their mom.

RELATED: Madonna Says Giving Her Children Cellphones Was A ‘Mistake’

Estere and Stelle, however, have apparently come up with the perfect response.

“The older ones could care less, and the younger ones, they think it’s funny,” Madonna shared.

“Today my 6-year-old twins said to me, ‘Mom, everyone’s always asking us if Madonna’s our mother. And we tell them, ‘No, Madame X is our mother,’” she quipped.

Despite her busy schedule, Madonna said she’s adamant about always making time for each of her six kids.

“If I’m in rehearsal, they come to see me,” she said. “My kids come to see me when I get home, then I go back to work. I usually try my best to have as many meals with them as possible.”

Madonna Reveals Her Twins, 6, Tell People That ‘Madame X’ Is Their Mom, Not Her

Madonna is an undeniable icon in music, but according to her, two of her kids like to refer to her by a slightly different name.

In an interview with Radio.com, the Queen of Pop, 60, revealed that her children — Lourdes, 22, Rocco, 18, David, 13, Mercy, 13 and twin girls Estere and Stelle, 6 — have various responses to her celebrity status and her twins even have a go-to response when people ask if she’s their mom.

“The older ones could care less, and the younger ones, they think it’s funny,” Madonna, 60, said. “Today my 6-year-old twins said to me, ‘Mom, everyone’s always asking us if Madonna’s our mother. And we tell them, ‘No, Madame X is our mother.’”

Madame X is the upcoming album by the “Like a Virgin” singer, which will become her 14th studio album to date.

She also revealed that despite her busy schedule, she still manages to make time for all six kids.

“If I’m in rehearsal, they come to see me,” she said. “My kids come to see me when I get home, then I go back to work. I usually try my best to have as many meals with them as possible.”

Madonna’s eldest daughter, Lourdes, came from her relationship with Carlos Leon, who was her personal trainer. After the two split in 1997, she met director Guy Ritchie, who became her second husband (she was married to actor Sean Penn in the ’80s). The two welcomed her second child, Rocco, in 2000.

In 2006, the two adopted their son David from Malawi. Following her divorce from Ritchie, 50, in 2008, she adopted another child solo: daughter Mercy, also from Malawi, in 2009.

She adopted her youngest children, twin daughters Estere and Stelle, from Malawi in 2017 when the girls were 4 and moved to Lisbon, Portugal.

While she tends to keep her children off her social media, the Material Girl shared a photo of all six children on Thanksgiving Day last year.

“What I am Most THANKFUL for!” Madonna captioned the sweet snapshot. “My Children have led me down roads and opened doors I never imagined I’d walk through.”

“Fame , Fortune and Records Broken could never equal that which I treasure and value most,” she added, including the hashtags #blessed, #grateful, #children and #family. “Happy ThanksGiving from Malawi!”

Madonna, who founded the charity Raising Malawi in 2006, has returned to the nation repeatedly over the years.

In July 2017, Madonna, Rocco, David, Mercy and the twins jetted to Malawi for the opening of the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care at the Queen Central Hospital, which Raising Malawi funded.

The following year, Madonna and all six kids visited the hospital to celebrate its one-year anniversary.

Along with raising six children, the pop star has her hands full with the release of her upcoming studio album Madam X, which will be followed by the Madame X Tour, which kicks off in September in New York City.

Madonna shared her excitement about the tour announcement on Twitter earlier this month. “Madame ❌ is excited to announce she is going on tour! 🎯 A theatre tour!!  👠 💃🏾🎤! This Fall,” she captioned a short promotional video costarring Diplo.

She also shared a photo of herself getting cozy on the lap of her “Guru and Friend,” as she described Diplo.

Summer Music Preview: Madonna, Ed Sheeran, and More Albums We Can’t Wait to Hear

Madonna, Madame X (June 14)

Because this is Madonna and she can do nothing without spectacle and intrigue, she’s invented a whole new persona — how many are we at now? — for her 14th album. According to her, this Madame X character is an amalgam of all sorts of personalities and professions (secret agent, cha-cha instructor, freedom fighter), which means the sonics of the album will likely be just as schizophrenic and versatile, drawing, she says, from time abroad in Lisbon (it’ll be multilingual for that reason, too). It’ll likely still keep a unifying, summery theme, though: Singles “Medellín,” featuring Maluma, and “Future,” featuring Quavo, offer strong beach vibes. —D.L.
