Profile

There is no denying the fact that Madonna is the Queen of Pop as she has made an enormous contribution to the world of music since the 80’s. She is not only a self-establish pop star but also an actress and a successful business woman. She is a widely celebrated entertainer till date.

Early Life and Education

Madonna was born on the 16th of August 1958 in Bay City, Michigan. At a tender age, her mother died. And this was the time of her life that she started to learn about being independent. Thankfully, she had the loving support of her grandparents.

In school Madonna acted very well, becoming a star student. While studying, she also learned how to dance and was a member of the cheerleading team. When in college, she decided to quit and move to New York to join the entertainment field.

Early Career

She had about 35$ in hand and absolutely zero knowledge of what it was like to live in a big city. Of course, struggling to make ends meet was nothing new to her. She did many odd jobs to go on by, for example like working as a waitress at a fast food restaurant. Still, when the money was not enough, she did a second job which was becoming a backup dancer for local bands. This was one of the decisions that helped her meet with the top musicians of New York City.

Her first album was a reasonable success, but it wasn’t until her second album ‘Like a Virgin’ did Madonna’s fame skyrocketed making her a big star quickly.

From the 90’s into the new millennium, Madonna released many dance based albums in the pop genre. Never forgetting her dancing roots, she made sure there were some elements of it in all her songs. Her popularity was still high as she was very much satisfied in writing her very own lyrics and also sampling works of other artists.

Who would have known that with a sheer determination in her heart, and little money in her pocket, Madonna could make it big in New York City?

This was a result of the perseverance she had, which no matter what happens, she was still going to try. And the result made her the biggest star in the whole world.

Personal Life

From 1985 to 1989, Madonna was married to Sean Penn. Her daughter Lourdes was born after an affair with her trainer Carlos Leon whom she didn’t marry. Her second marriage was to Guy Ritchie from 2000 to 2008 which also ended in divorce. This marriage produced a son Rocco Ritchie. Since then she also adopted two Malawian children, David Banda, and Mercy.
