Childhood and youth

Madonna was born on August 16, 1958 in the state of the Great Lakes - in Michigan (USA) in a family of an Italian and a Frenchwoman. Perhaps the biggest shock in her life was parting with her mother - when little Madonna Louise Chikkone was five years old, her beloved mother was dying of breast cancer.

Madonna Louise Ciccone lost her mother at the age of five. Perhaps this is what is reflected in her character, which can be called iron

At age 14, the future singer convinced her father to give her to the ballet class of Christopher Flynn. It was this man who was able to convince her to drop all the complexes and finally to believe in her own uniqueness and attractiveness.

Unfortunately, the stepmother (her father married a governess 2 years later) was never able to find an approach to an orphaned girl. This woman, by the apt definition of one of her stepchildren, was merely Feldwebel and did not recognize any sentimentality. Little Madonna did not find support in her large family either. She had three more brothers and two sisters, who only teased and offended the girl. Two of the three brothers, who later became addicts, also spread their hands.

Interesting! Despite the fact that the girl studied brilliantly, her classmates did not like her - the wayward nature of Madonna and at that time was not to everyone's liking. In one of the interviews, the singer said that she considered her peers "idiots", and they called her "a girl with greetings."

At age 14, the future singer convinced her father to give her to the ballet class of Christopher Flynn. Incredibly, it was this man who was able to convince her to drop all the complexes and finally to believe in her own uniqueness and attractiveness. Being gay, he took the future singer to concerts, exhibitions, night clubs, where he introduced shocking representatives of the Bohemian environment. Later, Christopher Flynn offered her to leave the University of Michigan, where she was in good standing, and go looking for happiness in New York.

It was Christopher Flynn who convinced the future star to go and conquer New York.

Having passed the toughest casting, she finally finds a job by vocation and falls into the group of choreographer Lang

Her first debut in the production of Lang was the role of a boy suffering in the Jewish ghetto.

Surviving in this city with $ 35 in her pocket, 15 of which she spent on a taxi, was not easy. The first time she lived from hand to mouth, spent the night in basements, in attics and rummaged in garbage cans.

Having passed the toughest casting, she finally finds a job by vocation and falls into the group of choreographer Lang. Because of malnutrition Madonna begins to weaken, so Lang arranges her to work as a dressing room attendant. Later, the future talent has to work and as a model.

Interesting! According to Madonna's own stories, in order to become who she is, she had to work hard to a pulp.

Young Ciccone was light and slim, but she still lacked ballet technique, so at first she had to work in the second composition. Her first debut in the production of Lang was the role of a boy suffering in the Jewish ghetto.

Poverty forces Ciccone to look for a new part-time job, and she tries it out in Broadway musicals.

It is her lover who makes her finally end up with a dancer's career. He teaches her how to play musical instruments and she is accepted into the Breakfast Club group.

Interesting! Even the persecution of the Catholic Church after the “Like A Prayer” video and the cancellation of the contract for excessively frivolous behavior with the Pepsi company become a kind of advertisement.

The first serious scandal that put her career under serious threat is the publication of photos of a nude singer, made back in the days of her hungry dance past. However, Madonna is not discouraged. Wearing old-fashioned clothes at a charity concert, she responds to the crowd, screaming "Yes, undress the same!" so: "If I get undressed even in the wild heat, it is only used against me!".

In 1985, Ciccone, according to the apt definition of the artist and producer Warhol, surrounded by a mixture of "celebrities and nonentities", marries the sexual and temperamental Shaun Penn. The future husband once described his first impression of Madonna with the following phrase: "Nasty voice, but the perfect ass." But Chikonne, unfortunately, was madly in love.

Despite the rigor in upbringing, the singer gives them enough autonomy and tries not to interfere with their freedom of choice, be it the choice of a profession or partner.
