“I think the ultimate challenge is to have some kind of style and grace, even though you haven’t got money, or standing in society, or formal education. I had a very middle, lower-middle class sort of upbringing, but I identify with people who’ve had, at some point in their lives to struggle to survive. It adds another color to your character.”

Quote By:  Madonna

 

Madonna was born in Michigan, the United States of America on March August 16, 1958 in a middle-class family.  Her parents were of mixed descents and that is the reason behind the attractive and gorgeous looks of Madonna.   Her father Tony Ciccone was a professional General Dynamics Engineer and was of Italian descent.  Madonna's mother, Madonna Fortin was of French Canadian descent, a former dancer and was working as an X-ray Technician when Madonna was born.  She was named Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone by her parents.  Her mother died early because of a life-threatening illness when Madonna was about 6 years old and later her father married another lady which affected the brought-up of Madonna and she felt quite lonely without her mother.  However, she showed courage and realizing the situation, she took over the responsibility to take care for her siblings.  Madonna showed early interest in music and dance and continued her academics in dance studies.  After her studies, in 1978 she joined her boyfriend's music band the Breakfast Club after doing odd jobs as a waitress and a figure model for other artists.  Madonna left the band soon in order to explore new opportunities for her and then along with her former boyfriend, she started to perform in a dance club Danceteria where she got attention as a songwriter and over there she impressed the DJ Mark Kamins who helped Madonna to get her first album contract with Sire Records which worked under the Warner Music Group.  Madonna started to work on her first album under the collaboration of Mark Kamins and subsequently, her first studio album was released in July 1983 with the title of Madonna. This album paved the way for Madonna's music career as it was considered to be a Hit album.  This album reached number eight spot on Billboard 200 and was certified as five times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).  This was quite an achievement for Madonna as a new artist that this album managed to sell more than 10 Million copies worldwide.
