Some adore her, some hate her... Anyway, Madonna music lyrics was a must for our lyrics web site.
She was and still is an idol to millions around the globe and the best selling artist. Madonna is a woman who defined fame like no one did before or after. She sang Like a Virgin, published the book Sex, played Evita, and now is a perfect mother to her children Lourdes and Rocco.
Madonna has topped the album charts with 1984's "Like a Virgin", 1986's "True Blue" and 1989's "Like A Prayer".
Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone was born on 16 August 1958, Rochester Michigan, USA.
Madonna was involved at dance and drama at high school. In 1977 she went to New York, and two years later, she moved to France. There she met Dan Gilroy and, back in New York, the pair formed club band the Breakfast Club.
Madonna broke out from the dance scene into mainstream pop with 'Holiday', written and produced by John 'Jellybean' Benitez. It reached the US Top 20 and was a Top 10 hit across Europe in 1984.
'Like A Virgin', a 1984 single was the first of ten US number 1 hits for Madonna. By the time, Madonna had become an internationally recognized superstar.
In 1985 - 1987, she turned out a stream of irresistibly catchy hit singles.
Madonna's film career had begun in 1980 with a minor role in the b-movie A Certain Sacrifice before she starred in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985). In Shanghai Surprise (1986), Madonna appeared with Penn, from whom she separated in 1988.
In 1990, her career reached a new peak of publicity and commercial success. She starred with Warren Beatty in the blockbuster film Dick Tracy.
Madonna's reputation as a strong businesswoman, in control of each aspect of her career, was confirmed in 1992 when she signed a multi-million dollar deal with the Time-Warner conglomerate, parent company of Sire. This guaranteed the release of albums, films and books created by her own Maverick production company.
In 1996 her need to shock had mellowed considerably with a credible movie portrayal of Eva Peron in Evita. Later that year she became 'with child' on 14 October with the birth of Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon. She returned to music with 1998's Ray of Light, one of her finest recordings to date.
