Madonna, whose full name is Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer-songwriter and actress. Madonna remains one of the most “well-documented figures of the modern age”, with a broad amount of scholarly reviews and literature works on her, as well as an academic mini subdiscipline devoted to her named Madonna studies.
Madonna went to West Middle School, St. Andrew’s Catholic Elementary School, and St. Frederick’s Catholic Elementary School. She gained a reputation for her unusual behaviour in addition to her high-grade point average. To let the boys see her underwear, Madonna would pull up her skirt in class, hang it by her knees from the monkey bars at recess, and perform cartwheels and handstands in the corridors in between classes.
Later, she acknowledged that she had formerly imagined herself as a “lonesome girl looking for something. I wasn’t rebellious in the traditional sense. I was motivated to excel at something. Like regular girls, I didn’t shave my underarms or use makeup. However, I worked hard and earned decent scores. I aspired to prominence.”
Her father enrolled Madonna in classical piano lessons, but she eventually persuaded him to let her enrol in dance classes. Her ballet instructor, Christopher Flynn, convinced her to pursue a career in dance.
Later, Madonna attended Rochester Adams High School, where she earned straight A’s and joined the cheerleading squad. She attended the University of Michigan on a dance scholarship after graduating, and she spent the summer studying at the American Dance Festival in Durham, North Carolina.
Madonna net worth
Madonna’s net worth is estimated between US$590 million to $800 million.
Madonna was born on August 16, 1958. She is 64 years old.
Madonna has six children. Four of her kids have been adopted: David in 2006 and Mercy in 2009, and twins Esther and Stella Mwale in 2017. She has a biological daughter, Lourdes, with former partner Carlos Leon. Rocco is her eldest son.
Lourdes, her first child, was born in 1996, and she later added Rocco, David, Mercy, and the twins Stella and Estere to her family. On the cover of PEOPLE in 2017, Madonna talked openly about her experience with adoption as well as her life at home with her kids.
“Sometimes I would just close my eyes and just think, ‘Why isn’t my kitchen filled with dancing children?’ There are so many children that need a home,” she said. “I thought, ‘What am I waiting for? Just do it.’ “
