Recently during her interview with Variety, the Grammy-winning singer answered many questions about her fourthcoming biopic. 

Out of many, Madonna was asked why she decided to don a director's cap for her biopic, to which Madonna gave a befitting reply, ''I’ve had an extraordinary life, I must make an extraordinary film.''

Further adding she said, '' It was also a preemptive strike because a lot of people were trying to make movies about me. Mostly misogynistic men. So I put my foot in the door and said, “No one’s going to tell my story, but me.”

The biopic is in the production stage and more information has been kept under wraps. Reportedly, Julia Garner has been offered to play the younger version of Madonna.
