5 Music Biopics We’re Dying To See
Oh where, oh where have all the good biopics gone!? Granted All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix biopic featuring Andre 3000, is phenomenal but what about all those attempts at a justified Whitney Houston or Aaliyah flick? We’re not talking about some over-dramatic lifetime nonsense, we want the real deal. What we’re craving is a saucy Madonna flick or a stand-out Tina Turner performance and we know just the people to fill those parts. Crossing our fingers that pop royalty from Lady Gaga to Beyonce will soon star on the silver screen as some of our favorite legends.
Lady Gaga as Amy Winehouse
We still miss the gorgeous, and immensely talented, Amy Winehouse. Her troubled life would make for an insanely dramatic biopic that only Lady Gaga could pull off. Besides their mega-successful pop careers and collaborations with Tony Bennet, there is most certainly a resemblance there too.
Miley Cyrus as Madonna
It’s no secret Miley Cyrus takes a page from Madonna’s book of pop star shock and awe. Time for Hannah Montana to dust off her acting chops and kick ass in a much-needed Madonna biopic.
Bruno Mars as Michael Jackson
Only Bruno Mars, with his honey voice and killer dance moves, could truly honor Michael Jackson.
Beyonce as Tina Turner
Case and point:
Rihanna as Whitney Houston
It’s about time someone made a decent Whitney Houston biopic and Bad gal Ri Ri would be a dynamo pick. She has talked candidly about how much she would love to play the role of one of her biggest influences, “That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off.”
