“Queen of Pop” and “Material Girl”, Madonna has turned into a multi-hyphenate, one of the most powerful American women, a pop legend and might be the most strategic businesswoman from the music industry.
Born on August 16, 1958, to catholic parents Silvio Ciccone and Madonna Fortin at Bay City, Michigan, Madonna Louise Ciccone would go on to become a self-made personality as renowned as Elvis or Michael Jackson. Raised in the suburbs of Pontiac and Rochester Hills, Madonna had a catholic upbringing.
Madonna’s dating life and relationships are as star-studded as they come. She has dated several men and boys through her career from Dan Gilroy, Vanilla Ice to Jesus Luz and present boyfriend Brahim Zaibat. She has a son Rocco, whom she had with former husband Guy Ritchie, four adopted children; David Banda, Mercy Jamea and twins Estelle and Stella. She also has a daughter Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, whom she had with Carlos Leon.
From Grammy wins to several sold out concerts, Madonna has bagged it all through her wide career span. She has starred in movies, has her own business ventures and has achieved the epitome of success through her lucrative career.

Madonna Songs, Albums, TV series and Movies:
It is an unprecedented task to list out all of Madonna’s successful works since I don’t recall any failures by the legend over her triple decade career. But if I had to do pick out the absolute best they would be Ray of Light, Like a Prayer and Confessions on a Dance Floor. Her best films would have to be A League of Their Own, Desperately Seeking Susan and Evita.
After attending St. Fredrick’s and St. Andrews Elementary School she went to West Middle School. Later she attended Rochester Adams High School in Rochester Hills, Michigan and received straight As through her academics. Being a part of the cheerleading squad she earned a dance scholarship to the University of Michigan, where she was persuaded to opt for a dance career by her teacher. After bagging millions with Warner Bros. Records, Madonna signed a staggering $120 million deal with Live Nation. She even has her own clothing line, Material Girl, which she designs with her daughter and released under the Macy’s label. Along with that she even owns Hard Candy Fitness, a series of fitness centres; and Truth or Dare by Madonna, her second fashion brand which includes footwear, underclothing and accessories.
Madonna is not only a pop icon but a businesswoman who has strategized her career with caution and smart investments over a span of three decades. Her ability to morph with time and wrap herself up in controversy has grabbed tonnes of ears and eyeballs and made her into a brand.
