Madonna’s COVID diaries took a detour on Thursday.
The 62-year-old “Vogue” singer posted an Instagram Live video lasting more than an hour of working with “Juno” Diablo screenwriter Cody on his biopic. Several times during the video, Cody can be seen covertly giving the camera a Jim Halpert-like appearance at “The Office”.
The meandering video opens with the couple discussing a scene in which Madonna’s sister Paula Ciccone confronts the singer in London while she was filming director Alan Parker’s film adaptation of the musical “Evita”.
“I was totally and totally intimidated by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and the story of Eva Perón, the true historical story, and up to all the great singers and actresses who had played her before me”
She later revealed that Webber was not particularly nice to her.
“He wasn’t nice to me,” he said. “I’m not even sure he wanted me in the movie. Thank God, Alan Parker did.”
Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for Lloyd Webber, wrote in a statement: “He must have confused Andrew with someone else. Andrew and Madonna had a very fluid and productive working relationship for the film “Evita”. “
One person involved in the musical – Patti LuPone, who had the role on Broadway – thinks Madonna was terrible in the film.
“I thought she was a piece of shit,” Andy Cohen told “Watch What Happens Live” presenter in 2017. “Madonna is a movie killer.”
Madonna, a mother of six, shared some details of the upcoming film with fans describing it as “my struggle as an artist … trying to survive in the world of a man as a woman. And really just the journey, which is been happy, sad, crazy, crazy, good, bad and ugly. “
