Madonna – 65 years of sex, courage, strength and freedom

Madonna turned the arrow of life at 65 on August 16 – Madge is not at the peak of fame today, but what she did for pop music is almost unmatched. He did not dare to be a product, to be scandalous, to be criticized, to rebel and to gain disciples. He wasn’t particularly thrilled when his singing credentials were questioned and he replied – Say that to my bank account!

For 40 years in the light, he was loved and hated in equal measure. Apparently, no other artist of his fame has provoked such passionate debates. He achieved what few other showbiz personalities have managed: Madonna changed the world. Some biographers note that the press followed her closely about who she dated, what she did, but they wrote little about how important she really was – the media talked about sex and outrage. Although there was a lot of both in his life, these words do not explain the challenge he poses, nor the source of his appeal. Not sex, but power. Not outrage, but courage.

The brightest woman on the pop scene since the 1980s was born in Bay City, Michigan.

In early 1962, Madonna’s mother, who was pregnant with her sixth child, was diagnosed with breast cancer, an apparent consequence of working as an X-ray technician before protective gowns became mandatory. She delayed treatment until her baby was born on July 5, 1962, but by then it was too late. A painful, year-long battle with the disease followed. He lost her on December 1, 1963. Madonna was only 5 years old. This naturally marks his soul, his behavior, his life.

Her father married the nanny and they have two children.

A high school student and cheerleader, Madge later studied dance at the University of Michigan. Then he moved to New York, decided that music is his path, wrote songs and became more and more popular on the club scene.

During the first year of her life in New York, she was robbed, assaulted and raped, she did not report to the police. “I needed money for the palace phone and a stranger gave it to me. He was a very friendly guy and said, ‘I live down the street if you want to call my house.’ Then 19-year-old Madonna agreed, blaming “stupid friendship” on her Midwestern roots. “I believed everyone. The rest is not worth talking about” he told Howard Stern.

He wrote his best songs of his entire career in a few hours. In 1983, he told Dick Clark, who asked him what his dream was for the new year of 1984, “To rule the world” – an astonishingly prescient prediction of what was to come.

On one of her birthdays – August 16, 1985, she married actor Sean Penn and starred with him in the movie “Shanghai Surprise” (1986). On December 28, 1988, he was found tied to a chair, gagged and with wounds on his body. Sean Penn allegedly went too far with his antics. He denied that this had happened.

Her song “La Isla Bonita” (1986) was inspired by her visit to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, with Sean Penn, at the dawn of their wedding. “When I married Sean Penn, I said to myself, ‘When I make my first million, I’m going to buy a piece of art.'” Literally: get a Frida Kahlo painting. Madonna was a big fan of him since she was little.” I bought a portrait of him. It was very cheap at the time because people didn’t know who he was.”

Jean-Michel Basquiat destroyed all the paintings given to him. Madonna and Basquiat dated when she was very young, but his addiction to heroin eventually separated them. “He was an amazing man and deeply talented. I loved him. When I broke up with him, he gave me back all his paintings. And he painted them black.” He regretted returning them, but he felt he had to because it was his job.

Madonna gives flesh and blood to Evita Perón in the film of the same name. She fought hard to get the role of Frida, but Salma Hayek won.

Madonna says Debbie Harry of Blondie and Christie of the Pretenders are her biggest musical inspirations.

On January 25, 1989, Madonna signed a $ 5 million contract with Pepsi to promote the most popular drink, tied to advertising for her album Like a Prayer. On March 3, when the video for the first single “Like a Prayer” was released, it sparked international controversy because it showed cross burnings, murder, and racism, and Pepsi withdrew its contract. The single later climbed to number 1 in the charts and stayed there for 3 weeks. And Madonna thanked “Pepsi” for the reaction, because it further contributed to the fame of the track.

The costumes she wore during the 1990 Blond Ambition Tour were made by Jean-Paul Gaultier (including the controversial horn bra).

His song “Vogue” is a tribute to the glamor of classic Hollywood. Celebrities mentioned in the song include Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Joe DiMaggio, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Grace Kelly, Jean Harlow, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Rita Hayworth, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn , Lana Turner. and Bette Davis.

The best years of his life were with the British director Guy Ritchie, with whom he spent about 10 years together. Gwyneth Paltrow was a bridesmaid at their wedding.

In November 2000, Madonna performed a live concert at “Brixton Academy” in London, which was broadcast on the Internet. A record nine million people watched the event, making it the biggest live webcast of all time.

Madonna has an IQ of 140, which didn’t stop her from swearing at David Letterman 13 times, but it helped her write several children’s books. Among them are “English Roses” and “Mr. Peabody’s Apples” – on spreading lies about someone, the damage is permanent and nothing can be repaired.

Before he was seriously hospitalized a month ago for a bacterial infection, he was hospitalized on his 47th birthday – August 16, 2005 – after he broke his arm, collarbone and three ribs in a fall from a horse in his garden in England.

Some time ago, he shared: “Every 3 days I want to be normal. Every three days I say to myself: ‘This is it. I’m going to move to a cabin and live in the woods and no one will mess with me. with me again.’

In 2009, she released her fourth major label album, Celebration, which became Madonna’s eleventh UK No.1 album. So he equals Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most number 1 albums in the UK.

Madonna did not end the world. The fight against fans that he has led throughout his career is far from over, and he has something to say about it. He’s gearing up to kick off his “Celebration” tour in October, and that’s great news for his fans, who are likely to be shocked, inspired, challenged and entertained.

Madonna destroys and creates, she is a performer, composer, producer, actor, director, author of children’s books, a muse – in a time when women were encouraged to stay on one track. It started when Reagan came to power. He broke down social barriers, using his message and work to stand up against the music industry, Hollywood, the Taliban, the Putin regime and the Vatican, against sexism, misogyny, racism, homophobia and hypocrisy.

Because she is a woman and a pop star, critics generally dismiss her political statements as ostentatious opportunistic behavior. But there are young people who look to the future, see beyond this criticism. Writer Sonia Kamal was introduced to Madonna’s music as a child while living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He said Madonna represents “pure, unadulterated, raw sexual freedom” and hope: “Hope that sexy girls don’t necessarily die poor deaths, hope that sexy girls lived to tell their stories, hope that sexy girls can rule the world”.
