Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone is the most successful female artist of all time with more than 300 million albums sold. She’s also the richest recording artist alive.
Often called The Queen Of Pop, Madonna has had a highly controversial and innovative career pushing boundaries in many topics such as female empowerment, religion, teenage pregnancy, sexual freedom and celebrity cult.
She was born in Bay City, Michigan and moved to New York at the age of twenty to pursue a dance career. Soon she decided to start making music and played as a drummer and a vocalist in some rock bands before going solo. She rose to fame with a streak of hit singles from 1983 to 1989, having three number one singles from the same album in 1986 with True Blue.
