Madonna feels she was "qualified" to make 'W.E.'

Washington, Jan 31 (ANI): Madonna has revealed that she thinks she was "qualified" to make 'W.E.' since she knows about "the agony and ecstasy of love".

The queen of pop, who marked her directing debut with the two-tier tale based on the story of Britain's King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, believes her own turbulent love life, which includes two marriages, gives her a good backing to tell the tales of other people's relationships.

"I know the agony and ecstasy of love. I feel like I'm in a very qualified position to speak of it and make a film about it," Contactmusic quoted her as telling MTV News.

"Absolutely for anyone and anything we love, we make sacrifices. Love equals sacrifice," she said.

However, Madonna, who is currently dating 24-year-old dancer Brahim Zaibat, thinks there is "no such thing as perfect love".

"I think there's duality to my point of view in the film because on the one hand you can say I take a slightly cynical point of view about romance.

And there's no such thing as perfect love. The idea that we are raised - certainly women, young girls - that the knight in shining armour is going to come and sweep you off your feet and take you on his stallion and you're going to ride off in the sunset, well that's really rubbish, isn't it?" she added.
