Madonna Louise Ciccone was born and raised in Michigan, but moved to New York City when she was 20 to pursue a dance career. She first worked as a backup dancer and singer for Patrick Hernandez, but later formed bands like the Breakfast Club and Emmy. In the early 80s, Madonna embarked on a solo music career, and signed with Sire records. Her self-titled debut album was released in 1983, followed by a string of other successful projects like Like a virgin, True Blue, and Ray of Light. Like A Virgin even became the first album released by a female to sell over 5 million copies in the United States alone. “Like A Virgin”, “Take a Bow”, “La Isla Bonita”, and “4 Minutes” are only a handful of Madonna’s chart topping songs. She has also made a large impact on fashion trends for women. Her debut style of lace tops, fishnet stockings, and bleached hair was an inspiration for women of the time. In the height of her career, Madonna embodied a sexually open mindset, using provocative imagery, nudity, and sexual themes in her image and music. Many critics and fans were upset by her, some critics even referring to her as a sexual renegade. No matter how Madonna chooses to portray her music and herself, however, it is always genuine, which has kept fans intrigued for decades. Her legendary collaboratoins include work with Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Avicii, Kanye West, and much more. In more recent ventures, Madonna has released children’s books, starred in films, and founded the Ray of Light Foundations and Raising Malawi. Billboard has named her the most successful solo artist in its Hot 100 history, and is featured on Top 100 Artist lists from VH1, Rolling Stone, and many other credible networks and magazines.
