Madonna Slams Blond Ambition Biopic

Madonna Slams Blond Ambition Biopic
Just a few months after topping The Black List as the most popular unproduced screenplay of 2016, we reported yesterday that the Madonna biopic entitled Blond Ambition was picked up by Universal, with Brett Ratner and Michael De Luca producing. Yesterday's report didn't offer any indication of whether or not the iconic Madonna supports this biopic or if she will have any creative involvement, but now it seems we have our answer. The pop star took to social media earlier today, making it clear that she has no involvement in the project. Here's what the singer/actress/filmmaker had to say below.

"Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. . Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society."

Madonna didn't offer any further insight on her Twitter and Instagram pages,

Twitterwatch: Tweets From Our Favorite Celebrities, Does This Tweet Make My Butt Look Big?

Both gurls in this picture are big and muscular.

Here at TwitterWatch, we've said goodbye to our abs and come to the realization that Twitterstalking celebrities for a living is not conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Our celebrities are a mixed bag though. Most make their living, at least partially on their good looks, but summertime BBQs provide a lot of temptation to be on Team Food instead of Team Gym.

Considering he runs in Broadway circles with a lot of actresses, when I saw Cheyenne Jackson tweeting about a "good facelift" I assumed he was at an event with Joan Rivers. It turns out he was just faking a good facelift with the #1 girl in his life, on a grassy hillock somewhere in New York City.

Comedian Josh Thomas, who announced his breakup from his boyfriend on Twitter, is experiencing the conflicts of being newly single and back in the dating pool.

Is "InfoMania"'s Bryan Safi the Gayest Man in the World? Quite Possibly

Thanks to his “That’s Gay” segment on Current TV’s Infomania, Bryan Safi has become one of the most recognizable gay comedians in American pop culture. His satirical segments have taken on everything from the ridiculous phrase “No homo” to the terror that is gays attending prom to protecting the sacred institution of divorce from the gays.

In fact, Bryan is so immersed in gay culture, he claims to now be the gayest person on the planet. AfterElton.com recently caught up with Bryan to debate who really deserves that title, how “That’s Gay” came to be and much more.

AfterElton: I just want to clear one thing up so our readers aren't confused: even though we're both gay, this interview will be "no homo", right?

Bryan Safi: Of course! Just make sure you put it at the very end.

Ae: Will do. I know that you

Five Favorite Films with Ellen Fox

Earlier this year, Rotten Tomatoes and Current TV took a chance and launched a movie review television show unlike any other: one based on the myriad viewpoints and opinions of the moviegoers themselves. The Rotten Tomatoes Show, now 25 weeks old, has proven to be a success, featuring webcam reviews submitted by viewers, Current TV and Rt community members, film critics, and filmmakers. However, another big reason for its success is the chemistry and wit of its hosts, Ellen Fox and Brett Erlich. Some may recognize Fox from her few small film roles, or from her days as a film...

‘The Rotten Tomatoes Show’ is in on Too Many Jokes

Fred Willard and Jane Lynch’s hilarious parody of Entertainment Tonight-ish hosts in For Your Consideration highlights what Christopher Guest’s mockumentaries do best - it shows blinding American enthusiasm at its zenith. So, if the aggressive cheeriness of network entertainment shows leaves you in sugar shock, you’ll likely gravitate towards the flavor of The Rotten Tomatoes Show. Something like The Insider sprinkled with ironic humor, The Rotten Tomatoes Show is a good concept that just hasn’t had enough time to cook. Billing itself as “a fast-paced, comedic journey through the week in cinema,” Trts delivers on that promise while attempting to be in on the joke at the same time, but ends up becoming a mish-mash of competing forces. Hosts and contributing writers Ellen Fox and Brett Erlich (of Viral Video Film School), a stable of side kicks, and professional and amateur film critics do their

The Porn Star Who Loved Art Flicks

I catch The Rotten Tomatoes Show pretty much every week, especially now that co-host Ellen Fox and I are officially engaged (but don't tell her; it's a surprise), and I'm always on the lookout for the best clips to share with you guys. Recently The Rt Show had actress / cyber-smut starlet / attractive female Sasha Grey pop up to share her top five films, what with her 'legit' debut just hitting the scene recently. (It's Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, and I'm still looking forward to checking it out.)

So I'm guessing the producers of The Rt Show were expecting a fairly standard list of favorite flicks from Ms. Grey. Maybe something like Pretty Woman or The Sixth Sense or (aha) Boogie Nights ... but Sasha is clearly a very discerning gal, and it sure seems like her tastes run towards the indie, the foreign, and the artsy. I won't ruin the surprises,

The Rotten Tomatoes Show's 'Ode to Chest Hair'

If a girl is smart and pretty, I turn to jelly. But if she's also funny? Sheesh, let's just say it's a good thing I just bought the new edition of Stalking for Dummies. Case in point is the adorable Ms. Ellen Fox, who (along with amusing dude Brett Erlich) is the host of Current TV's The Rotten Tomatoes Show. Every week these guys (and their co-writers) come up with something unexpectedly clever and downright "Lol" funny. Last week it was this breezy little ditty about the appeal of leading man chest hair. You may have to spin the clip twice to absorb all the lyrics, but it's worth the three extra minutes.

Nobody hates on Twitter like Current TV's SuperNews Video

Current TV takes Twitter by the short hairs and rips it out at the roots, as it should. The annoying text "what are you doing right now" phenomenon that has CNN's Larry King cackling, "thanks to all of You who put me ovah a quahtah million tweets, well that's somethin'," tonight on his show deserves a good roasting. Enter SuperNews, one of the irreverent shows on Current TV that airs Fridays 10/9c. Other Current TV shows include: infoMania on Thursdays 10/9c; The Rotten Tomatoes Show on Thursdays 10:30/9:30c.
