Lady Gaga is reportedly "furious" at plans to make a Hollywood biopic of her life.

Life & Style magazine claims that the singer is "cringing" at the prospect of having her life story played out on the big-screen in the forthcoming new flick Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story.

According to a source, Gaga – who was linked with the lead role in a biopic of late singer Amy Winehouse last August – does not want the proposed film to go ahead. They said:

She's furious, she's cringing at the thought of her life being exposed on television. Gaga doesn't want it getting out because it will portray her as insecure and needy. [She] wants to be seen as powerful and strong.


The rights for the film, which is said to have been written by Norman Snider, were originally obtained by US TV network Lifetime, but they are now reportedly being offered elsewhere.

Earlier this week (March 6), Lady Gaga became the first person to reach 20 million followers on Twitter. The singer is more popular on the social networking site than Justin Bieber (18.1 million), Katy Perry (15.75 million), Shakira 14.56 million) and Rihanna (14.49 million). All of the singers rank ahead of US President Barack Obama, whose 12.84 million followers are only enough to muster him eighth place.

Last month (February 24), Lady Gaga used her Twitter account to respond after her 'Born This Way' LP was dubbed the "most pretentious album ever" by NME. She wrote: "Oh the irony of winning "Most Pretentious Album Ever" from none other than NME. *eyeroll* I might laugh forever + then return to narcissism."

Following a burst of activity in the wake of 'Born This Way' in May 2011, Gaga has had a quieter start to 2012, though she recently revealed that songs for the follow-up are "beginning to flourish." She has also continued to be unflinchingly honest in interviews, revealing that she overcame bulimia to save her singing voice.
