Biography

Madonna Louise Ciccone, who became Ciccone Ritchie in 2000, was born in Bay City into a many children family of an Italian immigrant and an American woman of French-Canadian descent. According to the genealogical tree of the family, Madonna is a remote relative of Camilla Parker Bowls, the Duchess of Cornwall. Madonna's mother died in 1963, and widowed father married again. The second marriage resulted in two more children, bringing their total number to eight. In such surroundings in the suburbs of Detroit the childhood of the future star passed. However, the girl knew how to amuse herself – she attended ballet classes, got only A-marks at school and was a member of the local cheerleader team. Having finished the high school, Madonna entered the dance department of the University Of Michigan, but quit her studies in 1977. The reason for such a risky decision was her will to become a ballet-dancer. Flying on a plane for the first time in her life, Madonna headed to New York. The city met the girl without anticipation.

She had to work as a model and in cafes in order to pay for her living. With the show of dancer Patrick Hernandez Madonna moved to Paris, where she met musician Dan Gilroy. This meeting was of great significance for the girl, as she and Gilroy formed the band called Breakfast Club, in which Madonna started singing. She left that group for the Emmy collective in 1980. Her recordings came to the hands of DJ and producer Mike Kamins, and finally, in 1982, the promising vocalist was signed to the Sire Records. The rest has become a legend long time ago. The very first artist's album Madonna was sold out in huge amounts, making her a youth icon. Fishnet stockings, platinum blonde hair, heavy make up – all the things that contributed to Madonna's sexual image became the essentials of that time fashion. In 1984, the singer's popularity got so huge after the Like A Virgin disc with the eponymous lead single that the press did not manage to hesitate the audience's love for Madonna even printing her naked photos, shot in the period of her modeling. In 1985 Madonna debuted in cinema, playing the leading part in the picture titled Desperately Seeking Susan.

Since that she played in many films, including the main part in the Evita musical, though she failed to get a desired Oscar for acting. One of her film partners, actor Sean Penn, was Madonna's husband from 1985 to 1989. Then the singer preferred lesbian relations and short romances for a long time. After one of such affections she gave birth to her daughter Lourdes. By that moment Madonna was absolutely deservedly nicknamed the Queen Of Pop. She supported that nickname with the extremely stylish album Ray Of Light, adding an electronica edge to the sound. In two years she astonished everyone again with the forceful disc Music, making the majority of the tracks with the danceable house influence and decorating the ballad Gone and the hit Don't Tell Me with folk guitars. In 2000, Madonna gave birth to her son Rocco. His father was Guy Ritchie, whom Madonna married at the end of the same year. The singer moved to England and started writing books for children, though still singing. The American Life album, written about the other side of the American dream, got attention with singles American Life and Hollywood. In 2005, Madonna reminded of her previous hits with the Grammy-winning Confessions On The Dance Floor disc. In 2006, the press was outrageous of her adopting boy David Banda from Malawi. In 2007, she released the live record The Confessions Tour, which proved to be an extremely fascinating report about her controversial tour of the same name. As soon as The Confession Tour came to an end, the incredibly energetic and creative singer again went to the studio to work on her subsequent album. It was delivered to the stores in 2008 under the title Hard Candy. This beautifully executed record appeared another precious item in Madonna’s astonishing discography.

As soon as in a year, the tireless singer presented her subsequent release. Called Celebration, it was another collection of her most famous hits that arrived in the second half of 2009.
