Madonna putting a pause on music to work on her film “W.E.”
Madonna is everyone’s favorite pop star. She just had an episode on “Glee” that she called “brilliant” that featured many of her top hits. It was such a success that the producers are even thinking about doing a follow up Madonna episode in the future, and we couldn’t be more excited at the possibility of that. In addition, she is gearing up for her new film “W.E.” in which she co-wrote and will direct.
She recently sat down with director Gus Van Sant in and interview for Interview Magazine to discuss her upcoming film, her music and what her future looks like. In regards to the upcoming film she stated, “Yeah, the movie everyone thinks I’m making that’s supposed to be a musical about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. I don’t know why that got in the newspapers. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor are in the movie, but it’s not going to be about them. It’s really about this other woman’s journey, and the duchess is kind of her spiritual guide.” She continued, “I’ve been writing it for the last two and a half years, to tell you the truth. It’s been kind of an obsession of mine. I started writing it when I finished filming Filth and Wisdom. It was actually an idea I had before that, but I made Filth and Wisdom because I realized that I didn’t really have a right to make a bigger film until I made a smaller film-and learned how to make a film.”
When it comes to how she is going to juggle the film and her music career, she says, “I don’t have a record deal right now with anybody. I don’t know how I’m going to get my music out the next time I make a record. I’m going to have to reinvent the wheel. I haven’t really been focused as much as I should be on the music part of my career because this movie has just consumed every inch of me. Between that and my four children, I don’t have the time or the energy for anything else. For example, I do appreciate that lots of people worked long and hard putting together things like the DVD of the Sticky & Sweet tour that we just released, and I have seen the finished product, but I have got no idea how people are going to find out about it or how it’s going to be sold.”
