Madonna on Monday said that she does not mind any criticism of her filmmaking abilities, so long as it is directed at her movie and not at herself. The pop star told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she is promoting her second film “W.E.”, she had to become famous as a musician and she expected to do the same as a film director. “I had the same kind of pressure when I began my music career,” Madonna told reporters.
“I was nervous, and I did not know what to expect, and people did not know what to expect,” she suggested.
The film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival and screening at the Toronto Stock Exchange, has been characterized by critics as visually appealing, but lacked the focus and burden of poor performance. “I can tell you that when people see my film and if you see me personally” supervised Madonna said when asked if they have what the critics thought.
