    Oh no dude what are you thinking! This has disaster written all over it! Given her track record, do you really want to put your career in her hands?She can't act what makes you think she can direct? Run ! Run now while you still can!

    Madonna made more than anyone else in music in 2009. If that's a languishing career, I want mine to languish.

    As someone who has collected books, etc. for many years about Her Grace, Wallis Warfield The Duchess of Windsor, I anxiously await this film from Madonna. I have faith that Madonna will create an honest portrait of this most interesting but much-maligned historical figure. Good luck, Madonna.
