Madonna hits out at unofficial biopic for quoting her verbatim

Madonna’s not happy about an unofficial biopic that is being made about her early career, and yesterday she took to the socials to pick holes in a copy of the script she has seemingly obtained.

In particular she noted a line on the first page of the screenplay for ‘Blond Ambition’, written by Elyse Hollander, in which she will be seen telling American TV host Dick Clark during an interview on his show that she’s a “famed high school dropout” from Detroit.

“Lets start with the first page”, Madonna wrote in a post on Instagram. “I was born in Bay City not Detroit. And I did not drop out of high school, in fact I went to University Of Michigan. Why would Universal Studios want to make a movie about me based on a script that is all lies? The writer Elyse Hollander should write for the tabloids. Anyone who supports this film is supporting lies and exploitation. Lies have no legs!”

Though the queen of pop has since deleted the mini-rant, possibly because a clip of the Dick Clark show on which she appeared in 1983 has surfaced in which she does indeed describe herself as a “famed high school dropout” from Detroit. A clip Hollander presumably plundered when writing the first page of her script.

Still, that one bit of front page accuracy doesn’t mean the rest of the screenplay isn’t dripping with lies. Though if it does turn out that the movie is, in fact, full of inconvenient truths, Madonna can just label it ‘fake news’ and President Trump will make her Secretary Of State. Then she can blow up the White House from the inside. See, there’s your happy ending.
