Madonna’s Introduction

Madonna Louise Ciccone (born August 16, 1958) is an American singer-songwriter and actress. She is considered one of the most important individuals in popular culture and has often been referred to as the “Queen of Pop”. Madonna is well-known for her ability to constantly reinvent herself as a musician, songwriter, and visual artist.

She has pushed the limits of mainstream music’s artistic expression while remaining in complete command of every area of her professional life. Her works, which incorporate social, political, sexual, and religious themes, have created both controversy and critical acclaim.

Madonna’s Personal Life

Madonna Louise Ciccone was born on August 16, 1958, in Bay City, Michigan, to Catholic parents Madonna Louise (née Fortin) and Silvio Anthony “Tony” Ciccone. Her father’s parents were Italian emigrants from Pacentro while her mother was of French-Canadian origin.  Tony Ciccone worked for Chrysler and GM as an engineer designer.

Since Madonna had the same name as her mother, family members called her “Little Nonnie”.  She then adopted Veronica as a confirmation name when she was confirmed in the Catholic Church in 1966. Anthony and Martin, Madonna’s two older brothers, and Paula, Christopher, and Melanie, her three younger siblings, all lived with her in the Detroit suburbs of Pontiac and Avon Township (now Rochester Hills).

Madonna’s mother died of breast cancer on December 1, 1963. Tony Gustafson, the family’s housekeeper, married him in 1966. They had two children, Jennifer and Mario.  Her daughter’s bitterness and subsequent rebellion against her father caused friction between them for many years after she found out about his second marriage.

Madonna attended St. Frederick’s and St. Andrew’s Catholic Elementary Schools, and West Middle School. Madonna was noted for her good grade point average and garnered popularity for her unusual activities. She would perform cartwheels and handstands in the hallways between classes, dangle by her knees from the monkey bars at recess, and pull up her skirt during class—all so that the males could see her underwear.

She later revealed to Vanity Fair that she viewed herself as a teen idol “A lost and despondent young woman. I wasn’t rebellious in a certain sense. Being good at something was important to me. I didn’t shave my underarms and I didn’t use make-up as other girls do. But I worked hard and did well in school… I aspired to become someone.”
