Madonna is best known as a Pop Singer. Pop icon and diva who was one of the most prominent faces in music during the 1980’s. She has sold over 300 million albums across the world. Her best known songs include “Like A Virgin,” “Papa Don’t Preach,” and “4 Minutes.” Madonna was born on August 16, 1958 in Bay City, MI. She grew up in an Italian-American household and was a straight A student, as well as a cheerleader, in high school. After earning a degree from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, she moved to New York City to pursue dance. Madonna is one of the most successful Pop Singer. She has ranked on the list of famous people who were born on August 16, 1958.
During her childhood, Madonna was inspired by actors, later saying, “I loved Carole Lombard and Judy Holliday and Marilyn Monroe. They were all incredibly funny … and I saw myself in them … my girlishness, my knowingness and my innocence.” Her “Material Girl” music video recreated Monroe’s look in the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”, from the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). She studied the screwball comedies of the 1930s, particularly those of Lombard, in preparation for the film Who’s That Girl. The video for “Express Yourself” (1989) was inspired by Fritz Lang’s silent film Metropolis (1927). The video for “Vogue” recreated the style of Hollywood glamour photographs, in particular those by Horst P. Horst, and imitated the poses of Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard, and Rita Hayworth, while the lyrics referred to many of the stars who had inspired her, including Bette Davis, described by Madonna as an idol. However, Madonna’s film career has been largely received negatively by film critics. Stephanie Zacharek stated in Time that, “[Madonna] seems wooden and unnatural as an actress, and it’s tough to watch, because she’s clearly trying her damnedest.” According to biographer Andrew Morton, “Madonna puts a brave face on the criticism, but privately she is deeply hurt.” After the box office bomb Swept Away (2002), Madonna vowed that she would never again act in a film, hoping her repertoire as a bad actress would never be discussed again. In 2016, a career retrospective, titled Body of Work, was shown at New York’s Metrograph hall. According to The Guardian’ s Nigel M. Smith, Madonna’s film career suffered mostly due to lack of proper material supplied to her, and given a chance “[she] could steal a scene for all the right reasons”.
While performing as a backup singer and dancer for the French disco artist Patrick Hernandez on his 1979 world tour, Madonna became romantically involved with musician Dan Gilroy and they lived in an abandoned synagogue in Corona, Queens. Together, they formed her first rock band, the Breakfast Club, for which Madonna sang and played drums and guitar. In 1980 or 1981 she left Breakfast Club and, with her then boyfriend Stephen Bray as drummer, formed the band Emmy. The two began writing songs together, but Madonna later decided to promote herself as a solo act. Her music impressed DJ and record producer Mark Kamins who arranged a meeting between Madonna and Sire Records founder Seymour Stein.

Madonna Louise Ciccone was born to Catholic parents Madonna Louise (née Fortin; 1933–1963) and Silvio Anthony “Tony” Ciccone in Bay City, Michigan, on August 16, 1958. Her father’s parents were Italian emigrants from Pacentro, while her mother was of French-Canadian descent. Tony worked as an engineer designer for Chrysler and General Motors. Since Madonna had the same name as her mother, family members called her “Little Nonni”. Madonna later commented about her name, “How could I be anything else but what I am having been named Madonna? I would either have ended up a nun or this.” She has two older brothers, Anthony and Martin, and three younger siblings, Paula, Christopher, and Melanie.
Throughout her career Madonna has been involved in writing and producing most of her own music. Stuart Price, one of her past collaborators, said that “You don’t produce Madonna, you collaborate with her. She’s a really good producer herself and obviously a great writer too. She has her vision and knows how to get it.” Madonna’s early songwriting skill was developed during her time with the Breakfast Club in 1979. According to Carol Gnojewski, her first attempts at songwriting are perceived as an important “self-revelation”. Madonna later became the sole writer of five songs on her debut album, including “Lucky Star” which she composed on synthesizer. As a songwriter, she has registered a total of 287 songs to ASCAP, including 18 songs written entirely by herself. Rolling Stone has named her “an exemplary songwriter with a gift for hooks and indelible lyrics.” According to Freya Jarman-Ivens, Madonna’s talent for developing “incredible” hooks for her songs allows the lyrics to capture the attention of the audience, even without the influence of the music. Despite having worked with producers across many genres, Rolling Stone writes that Madonna’s songs have been “consistently stamped with her own sensibility and inflected with autobiographical detail.” She has criticized “songwriting camps” which she had to undergo during album cycles for Rebel Heart and MDNA, due to the fact that people are always in a hurry. She clarified her preference for writing material with other artists “from beginning to the end” of a record, and described her songs as “meant to be ironic and not taken literally, and some are just straight-up, ‘Open my veins, this is who I am’.” Madonna has been nominated for being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame three times, for 2014, 2016 and 2017 ceremony. In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked Madonna at number 56 on the “100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time” list.

In 1978, Madonna dropped out of college and relocated to New York City. She said of her move to New York, “It was the first time I’d ever taken a plane, the first time I’d ever gotten a taxi cab. I came here with $35 in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I’d ever done.” She had little money while working as a waitress at Dunkin’ Donuts and with modern dance troupes, taking classes at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and eventually performing with Pearl Lang Dance Theater.

She later found the incident to be “a taste of my weakness, it showed me that I still could not save myself in spite of all the strong-girl show. I could never forget it.”
