madonna_11_1280_800-620x3871. Louise Maria Ciccone, the future pop queen, was the third child of eight children in the family of Canadian French Madonna Louise Fortin and Italian Silvio Ciccone. Both Louise and her nickname got the girl from her mother. Madonna’s father as a child called his beloved older daughter “Little Noni”.

2. Madonna was far from being the best student in her home school of Rochester Adams High School, so at the age of 19 she had to drop out. But the teachers remembered their wards well and still happily talk about how she excelled in the dance class and in the school drama group.

3. In the early 80s, Madonna was already eager to become a singer, but first she mastered the specialty of a drummer. She played the drums as part of an unknown band at the Breakfast Club, played the romance with guitarist Dan Gilroy and performed with him in the little shabby clubs in New York.

4. Madonna played her first role in cinema in 1979 in the film “The Specific Victim”. Her heroine named Bruno is a resident of one of the criminal districts of New York who lives with a transvestite and suffers from his perversions.Having become famous, the singer regretted her first film experiment and even tried, through court, to ban the film from being shown on the pretext of an abundance of explicit scenes of violence, but lost the case. And the film's director Stefan Levitsky now enthusiastically tells reporters that the future star, in tears, begged for this role from him and received only $ 100 for it.

5. Madonna was supposed to play the role of Rachel Marin, the beloved hero of Kevin Costner, in the famous melodrama "The Bodyguard", but the film's director Mick Jackson opted for another famous singer - Whitney Houston.

6. If you believe the brother of the singer Christopher, Madonna did not really succeed in cooking. Christopher says that the only thing she can cook in the kitchen is rice muffins. Christopher debunks another popular myth about his sister - the story of how she came to conquer New York with $ 35 in his pocket. He claims that at that time Madonna already had several contracts and decent fees for a provincial girl.

7. The key to her success is eccentricity. In 1989, after the release of the video for the song “Like A Prayer”, where Madonna sings against the background of burning crosses, she was officially cursed by the Vatican and the Pope in person.For this reason, Pepsi broke with the most profitable advertising contract at that time. The result was not long in coming - the song “Like A Prayer” became a musical bestseller and lasted a record long time on the top of the charts.

8. Madonna does not suffer from lack of vanity. When journalists asked her to comment on her charity work in Africa, where she helps children, the singer said: "I want to be like Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King, but stay alive."

9. Madonna managed to retrain for a while as a designer. The singer has created her personal collection for the Swedish brand H & M and for the American Gap in collaboration with Missy Elliott. According to rumors, the experience of creating clothes Madonna was unhappy and decided not to return to it again.

10. The name of Madonna is listed in the Guinness Book of Records: there she is named the most successful female singer of all times and peoples. Her fortune now totals $ 400 million, which she honestly earned after selling 200 million copies of her albums around the world. For a 25-year career, she has released 64 hits, which are included in the UK charts UK Top 40.
