Diablo Cody's Madonna Biopic to Feature Warhol, Basquiat, Lloyd Webber

Madonna teases biopic, slams ‘Evita’ composer Andrew Lloyd Webber

Madonna’s COVID diaries took a detour on Thursday.

The “Vogue” singer, 62, posted a more than hourlong Instagram Live video of herself working with “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody on her biopic. Several times during the video, Cody can be seen surreptitiously giving Jim Halpert-esque looks to the camera a la “The Office.”

The meandering video opens with the pair discussing a scene where Madonna’s sister Paula Ciccone confronts the singer in London while she was filming director Alan Parker’s screen adaptation of the musical “Evita.”

“I was totally and utterly intimidated by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and the story of Eva Perón, the real historical story, and living up to all the great singers and actresses who had played her before me,” the “Like a Virgin” chanteuse remembered. “I think I had a few nervous breakdowns worrying that I was going to be fired every day, basically.”

She then revealed that Webber wasn’t particularly kind to her.

“He was not nice to me,” she claimed. “I’m not sure he even wanted me in the movie. Thank God, Alan Parker did.”

Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for Lloyd Webber wrote in a statement: “She must have Andrew confused with somebody else. Andrew and Madonna had a very smooth and productive working relationship on the ‘Evita’ film.”

One person involved with the musical - Patti LuPone, who originated the role on Broadway - thinks Madonna was terrible in the movie.

“I thought it was a piece of s - - t,” she told “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen in 2017. “Madonna is a movie killer.” From nypost.com
