Madonna has made it clear that she isn't a fan of a planned biopic that will focus on her pre-fame life.

Universal recently acquired the rights to "Blond Ambition," a script about the singer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Brett Ratner is expected to produce the film, which centers on her struggles in New York while making her first album.

On Tuesday, Madonna took to Instagram to express her displeasure. She said that only she was qualified to tell her story and "anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool."

She likened it to "instant gratification" without doing the work and called it a disease of our society.
