Madonna's Biopic Plans
Madonna recently announced on Insta that she's working on a biopic with Diablo Cody. And it sounds as if she's not holding back in some cases. In the excerpt below they're talking about the movie, Evita.
When a fan asked her if Webber was “nice,” Madonna replied, “No, he wasn’t. He was not nice to me. I’m not sure he even wanted me in the movie. Thank God, Alan Parker did.”
Here's more. I remember when Madonna was up for that role of Evita. It was big pop culture news at the time. I'm also glad Madonna is doing this biopic, and I hope she's going to keep it real. Because if she doesn't do this project now, they're going to do it for her eventually, and it's really her story to tell.
Saunas, Sex Clubs, and Street Fights
Sunil Gupta has an interesting new photo series out with a strong emphasis on gay culture. And I think it looks fascinating.
That didn’t happen, and his five-decade career – the subject of From Here to Eternity, a new retrospective at the Photographers’ Gallery in London – sheds light on where he’s from and who he became, while partially telling the story of gay liberation, from the bars of Christopher Street, Manhattan’s gay mecca, to the newly empowered young professionals in south-east Asia.
You can check it out, here. There are several photos at the link I found amazing. True 70s gay culture, and gay history. Most of us know nothing about this. They also talk about his HIV and social issues. It's really a very good read.
