In a Q&A with fans, she said the biopic would be about her "struggle as an artist trying to survive in a man's world," adding that the journey covers a range of emotions: "happy, sad, mad, crazy, good, bad and ugly".

"I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer - a human being, trying to make her way in this world," Madonna said in a statement, confirming her directorial role.

No casting or production timeline for the film has been announced, but the pop star has charted the early stages of scripting on her Instagram account.
