Speaking about the project recently on Instagram, Madonna said: ‘I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a ­musician, a dancer – a human being, trying to make her way in this world.

‘The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me.

‘It’s essential to share the rollercoaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.’

Earlier this week, it was revealed the film will explore some of the darker aspects of her life before rising to stardom, including being raped at knifepoint at the age of 20.

A source told The Mirror: ‘She lost her mother to cancer when she was just five, something a child never gets over. But she turned her loss and pain into a creative force to be reckoned with. 

‘There will be some shockers, as that is just part of her DNA. This has been an incredibly cathartic process for Madonna,’ the insider continued. 

‘She is uncovering memories that have long been left dormant. She has done and achieved so much, so to have this time to reflect has been quite magical.’ 

Madonna previously revealed she was raped after moving from Michigan to New York to begin her music career.

In an essay for Harper’s Bazaar, she wrote: ‘New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint.

‘Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and had my apartment broken into three times. I don’t know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time.’

She previously explained: ‘I was told that if I wanted to press charges, that, you know, a physical examination, I would have to go before the court, they are going to ask you all these personal questions. 

‘You’ve already been violated, so then, do you want to talk about it? Do you want to make it public? No, it’s just not worth it. It’s too humiliating,’ she said.
