Madonna admits she is a 'Details Freak'

Madonna is a 'details freak'.
The 52-year-old singer always likes to be in control and thinks it is important to consider every aspect of a project, no matter how small.
Speaking about her new movie 'W.E.', which she directed, produced and wrote, she said: 'I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a control freak, but I am a detail freak. I chose the costumes, the locations, the lamps, the tables, the carpets, the drapes - everything.'
'I also liked to put the finishing touches on the actors before they did their scenes- you know, with their hair or clothes.'
'Putting on a bracelet or something on to Andrea [Riseborough]'s wrist gave me an emotional connection before directing her. Some of the jewellery we used was actually Wallis Simpson's.'
Madonna - who has been married twice before and is currently dating dancer Brahim Zaibat - believes she is in control of her own 'destiny', a message she reflects in the movie.
She explained: 'It's about what Wallis says in the movie - 'Get a life'. Happiness lies in our own hands and we are in charge of our own destiny.'
