Madonna Louise Ciccone, known simply as Madonna, is an American singer-songwriter, actress, and businesswoman, who is also called the ‘Queen of Pop.’ She was born on August 16, 1958, in Bay City, Michigan, U.S. She studied at St. Frederick and St. Andrew and West Middle Schools, where she performed well academically. However, she had a daring personality and sought to attract the attention of boys. She was also an excellent cheerleader and received a dance scholarship to the School of Music, Theater, and Dance at the University of Michigan.

In 1980, she moved to New York, where through her then-boyfriend, she managed to meet Seymour Stein, who signed her up for Sire Records. Along with them, he released the singles, ‘Everybody’ and ‘Burning Up,’ which were successful in the United States. ‘Burning Up’ peaked at number three on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart. After this, she began working on her debut album, “Madonna,” and even changed her style for the project. Her new style appealed to girls and adolescents of the time, setting a novel trend in the fashion of the ‘80s. Her debut album was released in 1983. From there, her career skyrocketed, and she released several albums and singles that quickly catapulted her to stardom, taking her to the top of the popularity charts around the world. In 1996, she bagged the leading role in the movie “Evita,” which was based on the life and work of the politician Eva Perón. This earned her a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical for her excellent portrayal of Perón.

In 2000, she began dating Guy Ritchie, and in August, she gave birth to their son, Rocco. She married Ritchie in a private ceremony in Scotland, and this marriage lasted eight years. From then on, every song that she has released has been a resounding success both in the United States and throughout the world. Also, in 2008, she was added to the Rock Hall of Fame. She has six children — two biological and four adopted. Over 300 million of her records have been sold worldwide. She was named the Best Selling Female Musician Ever by Guinness World Records.
