Madonna

There's little Madonna hasn't achieved in the public eye. As a musician, she's rivaled in popularity, influence and importance only by the Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson and few others, earning her the nickname 'The Queen of Pop'; As an actress, she changed the way we look at... uhh, Madonna; and as a religious spokesperson, she's offended more people than she could name. Despite her eventful life in the public eye, it's the Italian-American's musical achievements for which she will be remembered.

There's little Madonna hasn't achieved in the public eye. As a musician, she's rivaled in popularity, influence and importance only by the Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson and few others, earning her the nickname 'The Queen of Pop'; As an actress, she changed the way we look at... uhh, Madonna; and as a religious spokesperson, she's offended more people than she could name. Despite her eventful life in the public eye, it's the Italian-American's musical achievements for which she will be remembered. Her 13 studio albums (including soundtracks) span 22 years, beginning in 1983 with the appropriately entitled 'Madonna.' While her debut sold 8 million and made Madonna a star, it was the subsequent releases of 'Like A Virgin' in 1984 and 'True Blue' in 1986 which would elevate her to legendary status, each selling in excess of 20 million copies to date. Controversy followed Madonna wherever she went in the 80s and early 90s, entirely by her own design, of course. Her overtly sexual performances offended millions, resulting in the banning of many of her videos, including the legendary 'Justify My Love' clip. 'Like a Prayer' enraged the Roman Catholic Church, as Madonna openly turned her back on her religious upbringing and simulated sex with a Black Jesus. However, the 90s saw Madonna's commercial viability decline, and with this came a certain maturity in her music. Her performance in the movie 'Evita,' the story of the legendary second lady of Argentina Eva Peron, and subsequent album 'Ray of Light' (which sounded like the grown-up cousin of her True Blue) established Madonna again as a serious artist and a true commercial hit, the latter selling over 17 million copies worldwide. The massively successful 'Music' followed in 2000, selling 15 million copies, marking the third peak of her music career. 2003's 'American Life' was a disappointing failure, despite selling 4 million copies. 2005's 'Confessions on the Dancefloor' is generally agreed to be a marked improvement. « hide
