Her recognition was augmented by the film Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) which widely became seen as a Madonna vehicle, despite her not playing the lead. Expanding on the use of religious imagery with Like a Prayer (1989), Madonna received positive critical reception for her diverse musical productions, while at the same time was criticised by religious conservatives and the Vatican. In 1992, Madonna founded the Maverick corporation, a joint venture between herself and Time Warner. The same year, she expanded the use of sexually explicit material in her work, beginning with the release of the studio album Erotica, followed by the publishing of the coffee table book Sex, and starring in the erotic thriller Body of Evidence, all of which received negative responses from conservatives and liberals alike.
In 1996, Madonna played the starring role in the film Evita, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. .Madonna's seventh studio album, Ray of Light (1998), became one of her most critically acclaimed, recognized for its lyrical depth.^ Ray Of Light (CD, Album, Pro) .

Biography

1958–81: Early life and beginnings

.Madonna was born in Bay City, Michigan, at 7:05 AM on August 16, 1958, to Madonna Louise (née Fortin), who was of French Canadian descent, and Silvio Ciccone, who was a first-generation Italian American working as a design engineer for Chrysler and General Motors, originating from Pacentro, Abruzzo, Italy.^ Madonna Louise Ciccone history / edit Artist .

Madonna was nicknamed "Little Nonni", to distinguish her from her mother.[4][5] She is the third of six children; her siblings are Martin, Anthony, Paula, Christopher, and Melanie.[6] Madonna was raised in the Detroit suburbs of Pontiac and Avon Township (now Rochester Hills). Her mother died of breast cancer at age 30 on December 1, 1963.[6] Then her father married the family's housekeeper, Joan Gustafson, and they had two children; Jennifer and Mario Ciccone. Madonna commented on her father's second marriage: "I didn't accept my stepmother when I was growing up [...] In retrospect, I think I was really hard on her."[7] She attended St. Frederick's and St. Andrew's Elementary Schools, and after that West Middle School. There she became known for her high GPA - and for her "unusual" behavior, particularly a kind of an underwear fetish.[8] Madonna performed cartwheels and handstands in the hallways between classes, dangled by her knees from the monkey bars during recess, and pulled her skirt up during class, so that all the boys could see her briefs.[8]
Later, she went to Rochester Adams High School, becoming a straight-A student and a member of the cheerleading squad.[6] Madonna received a dance scholarship to the University of Michigan after graduating from high school.[9] She wanted to take ballet lessons and convinced her father to allow her to take the classes.[10] .Her ballet teacher persuaded her to pursue a career in dance, so she left the college at the end of 1977, and relocated to New York City.^ Pre-Madonna (1980-´81 New York City - Unauthorized) (Album) ◄ (2 versions) .

[11][12] Madonna had little money at that time and hence lived in squalor, working as a waitress in Dunkin' Donuts and with modern dance troupes.[13] .Of her move to New York, Madonna said, "It was the first time I'd ever taken a plane, the first time I'd ever gotten a taxi cab.^ Pre-Madonna (1980-´81 New York City - Unauthorized) (Album) ◄ (2 versions) .

I came here with $ 35 in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I'd ever done."[14] .While performing as a dancer for the French disco artist Patrick Hernandez on his 1979 world tour,[8] Madonna became romantically involved with the musician Dan Gilroy, with whom she later formed her first rock band, the Breakfast Club, in New York.^ Played drums in late '70s rock band Breakfast Club before forming band Emmy and then going on to launch her solo career.

[15][7] She sang and played drums and guitar for the band, but soon departed from them and formed another band called Emmy in 1980, with drummer and former boyfriend Stephen Bray. Together they wrote and produced dance-pop songs, that brought her to the attention of DJ and record producer Mark Kamins. .He was impressed by Madonna's demo recordings, so he brought her to the attention of Sire Records founder Seymour Stein.^ Not On Label (Madonna) , Sire Records Company (2) .

Madonna signed a singles deal with Sire Records, a label belonging to Warner Bros. Records.[18] Her debut single, "Everybody", was released on April 24, 1982, and became a dance hit.[19] Her debut album, Madonna, was primarily produced by Reggie Lucas.[20] At the same time, she became involved with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and lived with him for a time in his loft.[21] Soon after, she left the artist because of his drug use and late hours, moving in with musician John "Jellybean" Benitez to continue developing the album.[16] After its release, it peaked at number eight on the Billboard 200, and produced the top-ten singles, "Borderline" and "Lucky Star".[22][23]
Slowly, Madonna's look and manner of dress, her performances and music videos, became influential among young girls and women. Mainly created by stylist and jewellery designer Maripol, Madonna's style of dress – defined by lace tops, skirts over capri pants, fishnet stockings, jewelry bearing the Christian cross, multiple bracelets, and bleached hair – became a female fashion trend of the 1980s.[24] .Madonna eventually achieved global fame after the release of her sophomore album, Like a Virgin (1984).^ Like A Virgin (LP, Album, Rec) .

[31] Although not the lead actress for the film, her profile was such that the movie widely became seen (and marketed) as a Madonna vehicle.[32] The film received a nomination for a César Award for Best Foreign Film, and The New York Times film critic Vincent Canby, named it as one of the ten best films of 1985, with the lead actress Rosanna Arquette, receiving a supporting actress BAFTA for her role.[33] .While filming the music video for the second single from Like a Virgin, titled "Material Girl", Madonna started dating actor Sean Penn and married him on her twenty-seventh birthday that year.^ Married Sean Penn 16 August 1985, divorced 14 September 1989.

[36] But because she had signed the appropriate release forms, she could not take legal action to block them.[36] The publication of the photos caused media uproar, but Madonna remained defiant and unapologetic; she was paid as little as $25 a session. The photographs were ultimately sold for up to $100,000.[36] She referenced this incident at the outdoor Live Aid charity concert and stated that she would not take her jacket off because "they [media] might hold it against me ten years from now."[37][38]

Madonna released her third album, True Blue, in 1986, prompting Rolling Stone to comment that "it sounds as if it comes from the heart."[39] The album topped the charts in over 28 countries worldwide, an unprecedented record at the time, and earning a place in Guinness Book of World Records.[40][22] .The album spawned three number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100: "Live to Tell", "Papa Don't Preach" and "Open Your Heart", as well as other top-five singles "True Blue" and "La Isla Bonita".[30][23] The same year, Madonna starred in the film Shanghai Surprise (which was panned by critics), and made her theatrical debut in a production of David Rabe's Goose and Tom-Tom, both co-starring Penn.^ With 25 years in the music business, Christopher knows all too well what it takes to be a Pop Star, and with his infamous 'Ciccone Tongue' he won't be afraid to speak his mind!"

Madonna's marriage to Penn ended, and they filed divorce papers in December 1987, which was finalized in January 1989.[43] Of her marriage to Penn, Madonna said, "I was completely obsessed with my career and not ready to be generous in any shape or form."[34]
In early 1989, Madonna signed an endorsement deal with soft drink manufacturer Pepsi. She debuted her new song, "Like a Prayer" in a Pepsi commercial, and also made a music video for it. The video featured many Catholic symbols such as stigmata, burning crosses, and a dream about making love to a saint, leading the Vatican to condemn the video. Since the commercial and music video were nearly identical, Pepsi was unable to convince the public that their commercial was unrelated to the video. They revoked the commercial and cancelled their sponsorship contract with Madonna. However, she was allowed to retain her fee for the contract.[6] .Madonna's fourth studio album, Like a Prayer, was released the same year.^ Like A Prayer (LP, Album) .

Rolling Stone called it an "elaborately choreographed, sexually provocative extravaganza" and proclaimed it "the best tour of 1990".[53] The tour drew strong reaction from religious groups, for her performance of "Like a Virgin", during which two male dancers caressed her body before she simulated masturbation.^ Blond Ambition World Tour Live ◄ (4 versions) .

[42] The Pope encouraged the crowd and the Christian community not to attend the concert.[54] A private association of Catholics, called Famiglia Domani, also boycotted the tour for featuring eroticism.[55] In response, Madonna said, "I am Italian American and proud of it" and that the Church "completely frowns on sex ... except for procreation."[56] She later won a Grammy Award in 1992, in the Best Long Form Music Video category, for the laserdisc relase of the tour.[57]
The Immaculate Collection, Madonna's first greatest-hits compilation album, was released in November 1990. It included two new songs, "Justify My Love" and "Rescue Me".[58] The album was certified diamond by RIAA and sold over 30 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling compilation album by a solo artist in the history.[27][59] ."Justify My Love" became Madonna's ninth US number-one single.^ Bedtime Stories / Justify My Love (12") .

[19] The first release from the venture was Madonna's book, titled Sex. It consisted of sexually provocative and explicit images, photographed by Steven Meisel. The book caused strong reaction from the media and the general public, but sold 1.5 million copies, at $50 each, in a matter of days.[65][66] At the same time she released her fifth studio album, Erotica, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200.[66][22] Its title track peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100.[30] Erotica also produced five further singles, namely "Deeper and Deeper," "Bad Girl," "Fever," "Rain" and "Bye Bye Baby."[67]
Her provocative imagery continued with the erotic thrillers Body of Evidence and Dangerous Game. The first film contained scenes of S&M and bondage, and was poorly received by critics.[68][69] Dangerous Game was released straight-to-video in North America and was described by The New York Times as "angry and painful, and the pain feels real."[70] Madonna embarked on The Girlie Show World Tour at the end of 1993. It featured her dressed as a whip-cracking dominatrix, surrounded by topless dancers.[71] The show faced negative reaction in Puerto Rico, when she rubbed their national flag between her legs on stage.[42] That year, she appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. After Letterman introduced her on his show as "one of the biggest stars in the world", Madonna subsequently repeatedly used four-letter words and asked Letterman to smell a pair of her underwear she handed him.[72] The release of Truth or Dare, Sex, Erotica, Body of Evidence and the appearance on Letterman - all of them made critics question Madonna as a sexual renegade. She faced strong negative publicity, with critics and fans commenting that "she had gone too far" and that her career was over.[73]

In 2006, the clothing line M by Madonna, under H&M, was launched internationally.[119] Madonna's Confessions Tour began in May 2006. It had a global audience of 1.2 million, with a reported gross of $260.1 million.[120] The use of religious symbols, such as the crucifix and Crown of Thorns, in the performance of "Live to Tell", caused the Russian Orthodox Church and the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, to urge all their members to boycott her concert.[121] The Vatican, as well as bishops from Düsseldorf, protested against the concert.[122] Madonna responded: "My performance is neither anti-Christian, sacrilegious or blasphemous. Rather, it is my plea to the audience to encourage mankind to help one another and to see the world as a unified whole."[123] While on the tour, Madonna traveled to Malawi to help and fund an orphanage, as part of the Raising Malawi initiative.[124] On October 10, 2006, she filed adoption papers for a boy named David Banda Mwale, from the orphanage. He was later renamed, David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie.[125] The adoption raised strong public reaction, because Malawian law requires would-be parents to reside in Malawi for one year before adopting, which Madonna did not do.[126] She refuted the allegations on The Oprah Winfrey Show, saying that there were no written adoption laws in Malawi that regulated foreign adoption and that Banda had been suffering from pneumonia after surviving malaria and tuberculosis, when she had met him.[127] Banda's biological father, Yohane commented, "These so-called human rights activists are harassing me every day, threatening me that I am not aware of what I am doing. [...] They want me to support their court case, a thing I cannot do for I know what I agreed with Madonna and her husband."[128] The adoption was finalized on May 28, 2008.[129]

The documentary was directed by her former gardener Nathan Rissman.[134] She also directed her first film titled Filth and Wisdom. The Times said she had "done herself proud" while The Daily Telegraph described the film as "not an entirely unpromising first effort [but] Madonna would do well to hang on to her day job."[135][136]
Madonna released her eleventh studio album, Hard Candy, in April 2008. Rolling Stone complimented it as an "impressive taste of her upcoming tour."[137] The album debuted at number one in 37 countries worldwide, including the Billboard 200.[138][139] The album received mostly positive reviews worldwide, though some critics panned it as "an attempt to harness the urban market".[140][141] Its lead single "4 Minutes", reached number-three on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was Madonna's thirty-seventh Hot 100 top ten hit, thus surpassing Elvis Presley, as the artist with the most top-ten hits.[142] In the United Kingdom, she retained her record for the most number-one singles for a female artist, "4 Minutes" being her thirteenth.[143] To further promote the album, Madonna embarked on the Sticky & Sweet Tour, which was her first major venture with Live Nation. It became the highest-grossing tour ever by a solo artist with gross of $US 280 million, surpassing previous record held by her Confessions Tour.[144] The tour was extended to the next year, adding new European dates.[145] The total gross by the end of the whole tour was US$ 408 million.[144]

[146] It was not authorized by Madonna, and led to a rift between them.[147] She filed for divorce from Ritchie, in October 2008, which was finalised in December.[148][149] On March 2, 2009, Madonna was honored with the Gold International Artist of the Year, at the Recording Industry Association of Japan Gold Disc Awards, for Hard Candy.[150] She decided to adopt again from Malawi. The country's High Court, initially approved the adoption of Chifundo "Mercy" James.[151] However, the adoption was rejected since Madonna was not a resident of Malawi.[152] Madonna re-appealed, and on June 12, 2009, the Supreme Court of Malawi granted Madonna, the rights to adopt Mercy James.[153] .In September 2009, Madonna released Celebration, her third greatest hits album, and the closing release with Warner.^ GHV2 Greatest Hits Volume 2 Asia Edition (CD, Album) .

Musical style

Problems listening to these files? See media help.
As an artist, Madonna's music has been the subject of much scrutiny among critics. Robert M. Grant, author of Contemporary Strategy Analysis (2005), commented that what has brought Madonna success is "[c]ertainly not outstanding natural talent. As a vocalist, musician, dancer, songwriter, or actress, Madonna's talents seem modest."[160] He asserts Madonna's success is in relying on the talents of others, and that her personal relationships have served as cornerstones to the numerous reinventions in the longevity of her career.[160] Conversely, Rolling Stone has named Madonna "an exemplary songwriter with a gift for hooks and indelible lyrics, and a better studio singer than her live spectacles attest."[17] She has been called "the perfect vocalist for lighter-than-air songs", despite not being a "heavyweight talent."[161] Madonna has always been self-conscious about her voice, especially when compared to her vocal idols, a group that includes Ella Fitzgerald, Prince and Chaka Khan.[162]
The release of her first album, Madonna (1983), heralded her arrival but her vocal abilities were not fully formed artistically. Her vocal styles and lyrics appeared similar to those of other pop stars of that period, namely Paula Abdul, Debbie Gibson and Taylor Dayne.[162] The songs on Madonna reveal several key trends that have continued to define her success, including a strong dance-based idiom, catchy hooks, highly polished arrangement and Madonna's own vocal style. In songs such as "Lucky Star" and Borderline", Madonna introduced a style of upbeat dance music that would proove particularly appealing to future gay audiences. The bright, girlish vocal timbre of the early years became passé in Madonna's later works, the change being deliberate.[162] .Her second album, Like a Virgin (1984), foreshadowed several trends in Madonna's later works, including references to classical works (the pizzicato synthesizer line that opens the song "Angel"); potential negative reaction from social groups ("Dress You Up" which was blacklisted by the Parents Music Resource Center); and retro styles ("Shoo-Bee-Doo", Madonna's homage to Motown).^ Like A Virgin (LP, Album, Rec) .

[162] Madonna's early style and the change that she ushered in it, is best evident in the song "Material Girl". It opens with Madonna using a little-girl voice, but following the first verse, she switches to a richer, more mature voice in the chorus.[162] This mature artistic statement was visible in True Blue (1986). ."Papa Don't Preach" from this album, was a significant milestone in her artistic career.^ Papa Don't Preach (7", Single) .

The classical introduction, fast tempo and the gravity in her voice was unprecedented in Madonna's oeuvre at that time.[162]
With Like a Prayer (1989), Madonna again entered a new phase, musically. Widely denoted as her most frank record, Like a Prayer reflected Madonna's thoughts on her failed marriage to Penn and her loneliness. Madonna commented "[The album] was a real coming-of-age record for me emotionally. [..] I had to do a lot of soul-searching and I think it is a reflection of that.[163] The album introduced live recorded music and incorporated different genres of music, including dance, R&B, Gospel music. Her relationship with her parents and Penn had a profound effect on the lyrics of the songs.[163] Madonna continued to compose ballads and uptempo dance songs for Erotica (1992) and Bedtime Stories (1994). She tried to remain contemporary by utilizing the use of samples, rap music, drum loops and hip-hop in the songs. Her voice grew much deeper and fuller, evident in the tracks like "Rain" and "Take a Bow".[164] During the shooting of Evita, Madonna had to take vocal lessons, which increased her range further. She herself commented: "I studied with a vocal coach for Evita and I realized there was a whole piece of my voice I wasn't using. Before, I just believed I had a really limited range and was going to make the most of it."[165] .Continuing her musical evolution with Ray of Light, the track "Frozen" displayed her fully formed vocal prowess and her allusions to classical music.^ CD (American Life / Music / Ray Of Light) (3xCD, Album) .

Her vocals were restrained and she sang the songs in Ray of Light without vibrato. However, the intake of breath within the songs became more prominent.[162] With the new millenium, came her album Music. From that album, Madonna has sung in her normal voice in a medium range, and sometimes singing in a higher register for the chorus. Fouz-Hernández commented that "Throughout her career, Madonna's manipulation of her voice shows us that, by refusing to be defined in one way, she has in fact opened up a space for new kinds of musical analysis."[162]

Influences

Marilyn Monroe had a profound influence on Madonna.
In 1985, Madonna commented that the first song to ever make a strong impression on her, was "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" by Nancy Sinatra and that it summed up her "take-charge attitude."[166] As a young woman, she attempted to broaden her taste in literature, art, and music, and during this time became interested in classical music. She noted that her favorite style was baroque, and loved Mozart and Chopin because she liked their "feminine quality".[167] Other musical influences included Karen Carpenter, The Supremes, Led Zeppelin, and dancers like Martha Graham and Rudolf Nureyev.[168] .Madonna's Italian-Catholic background, and relationship with her parents, were reflected in the album Like a Prayer.^ Like A Prayer (LP, Album) .

In Ciao, Italia! – Live from Italy, the video release of her Who's That Girl Tour, she dedicated the song "Papa Don't Preach" to the Pope.[170][171]
During her childhood, Madonna was inspired by actors, later saying, "I loved Carole Lombard and Judy Holliday and Marilyn Monroe. They were all incredibly funny...and I saw myself in them...my girlishness, my knowingness and my innocence".[166] Her "Material Girl" music video, recreated Monroe's look in the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend", from the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She also studied the screwball comedies of the 1930s, particularly those of Lombard, in preparation for her film, Who's That Girl. The video for "Express Yourself" (1989) was inspired by Fritz Lang's silent film Metropolis (1927). The video for "Vogue" recreated the style of Hollywood glamour photographs, in particular those by Horst P. Horst, and imitated the poses of Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard and Rita Hayworth, while the lyrics referenced many of the stars who had inspired her, including Bette Davis, described by Madonna as an idol.[56][172] Influences also came to her from the art world, most notably through the works of artist Frida Kahlo.[173] The music video of the song "Bedtime Story", featured images inspired by the paintings of Kahlo and Remedios Varo.[174] Her 2003 video for "Hollywood", was an homage to the work of photographer Guy Bourdin; it sparked a lawsuit by Bourdin's son, against Madonna, Webo Girl Publishing, Inc., Warner/Chappell Music, Warner Bros. .Records, Warner Music Group, MTV Networks, and Jean-Baptiste Mondino,[175] due to the unauthorised use of his father's work.^ Records , Warner Music (Australia) .

[176] Other new-age artists like Andy Warhol's usage of S&M imagery in his underground films, were reflected in the music videos for "Erotica" and "Deeper and Deeper".[177] Madonna became a follower of the Kabbalah school of Jewish mysticism after the birth of her daughter in 1996. She has been open about the influence of the religion on her, and donated millions of dollars for schools based on the religion, around New York and London.[178][179] In 2004, she changed her name to Esther, which in Hebrew means "star".[178] After she joined the religion, she faced opposition from Rabbis, who felt Madonna taking up Kabbalah was sacrilegious and a case of celebrity dilettanism. Madonna defended her Kabbalah studies by stating: "It would be less controversial if I joined the Nazi Party" and that the Kabbalah is "not hurting anybody."[180] .The religion went on to influence Madonna's music, especially albums like Ray of Light and Music.^ Ray Of Light (CD, Album, Pro) .

This mix of the sacred and the profane upset the Vatican and resulted in the Pepsi commercial withdrawal.[188]
Madonna's emergence occurred during the advent of MTV, and "with its almost exclusively lip-synced videos, ushered in an era in which average music fans might happily spend hours a day, every day, watching singers just mouth the words."[189] The symbiotic relationship between music video and lip-syncing, led to a desire for the spectacle and imagery of music video to be transferred to live stage shows. .Chris Nelson of The New York Times reported: "Artists like Madonna and Janet Jackson set new standards for showmanship, with concerts that included not only elaborate costumes and precision-timed pyrotechnics but also highly athletic dancing.^ Pre-Madonna (1980-´81 New York City - Unauthorized) (Album) ◄ (2 versions) .

[r]ather than try to croon and dance up a storm at the same time."[190] She was instruemntal in introducing RF microphones, generally known as Boom Mounting — the use of a headset boom fastened around the head or over the top of the head, with the microphone capsule on a boom arm that extends to the mouth. Later, it came to be known as the "Madonna-mic" because she was one of the first major performers to use them.[191][192]

[133]
Throughout her career Madonna, like David Bowie, has repeatedly reinvented herself through a series of visual and musical personas. Fouz-Hernández agrees that this re-invention is one of her key cultural achievements.[198] Madonna re-invented herself by constantly working with upcoming talented producers and previous unknown artists, while remaining at the center of media attention. In doing so she has provided an example of how to maintain one's career in the entertainment industry.[198] Madonna represented herself as someone who continued to change her persona and image from time to time. Such re-invention was noted by scholars as the main tool in surviving the musical industry, for a female artist.[199] As Ian Youngs from BBC News commented, "Her ability to follow the latest trends and adapt her style has often been credited with preserving her appeal."[200] Madonna's use of shocking sexual imagery, has benefitted her career and impacted public discourse on sexuality and feminism.[198] The Times commented: "Madonna, whether you like or not, started a revolution amongst women in music. [...] Her attitudes and opinions on sex, nudity, style and sexuality forced the public to take up and notice."[201] Rodger Streitmatter, author of Sex Sells! (2004), commented that "from the moment Madonna burst onto the nation's radar screen in the mid-1980s, she did everything in her power to shock the public, and her efforts paid off."[202] Shmuel Boteach, author of Hating women (2005), felt that Madonna was largely responsible for erasing the line between music and pornography. He stated: "Before Madonna, it was possible for women more famous for their voices than their cleavage, to emerge as music superstars. But in the post-Madonna universe, even highly original performers such as Janet Jackson now feel the pressure to expose their bodies on national television to sell albums."[203]
Madonna has influenced numerous music artists throughout her career. Mary Cross, in her book Madonna: A Biography, wrote: "Her influence on pop music is undeniable and far-reaching. New pop icons from Nelly Furtado and Shakira to Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera (not to mention Britney Spears) owe Madonna, a debt of thanks for the template she forged, combining provocative sexiness and female power in her image, music, and lyrics."[204] Fouz-Hernández commented that female pop performers such as "Spears, Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Minogue and Pink were like Madonna's daughters in the sense that they grew up listening to her and admiring, while deciding to emulate her style."[170] Among all of them, Madonna's influence was most notable in Spears, who was called her protégé.[201] She has also been credited with the introduction of European electronic dance music into the mainstream of American pop culture, and bringing European producers like Stuart Price and Mirwais Ahmadzaï into the spotlight.[170]
Madonna has also received acclaim as a role model for businesswomen in her industry, "achieving the kind of financial control that women had long fought for within the industry" generating over $1.2 billion dollars in sales within the first decade of her career.[205] After its establishment, Maverick Records - unusually for such labels - became a large commercial success due to her efforts.[206] .Guinness Book of Records names Madonna as the world's highest earning female singer on earth, after making £26.6 million in 2004 alone.^ The Best Female Singers In The World (CD, Promo, Comp) .

[207] Music journalist Robert Sandall, said that while interviewing Madonna, it was clear that being "a cultural big hitter" was more important to her than pop music, a career she described as "an accident". He also noted the contrast between her anything-goes sexual public persona, and a secretive and "paranoid" attitude towards her own finances; she fired her own brother, when he charged her for an extra item.[208] London Business School academics called her a "dynamic entrepreneur" worth copying, identifying her vision of success, understanding of the music industry, ability to recognise her performance limits (and thus bring in help), hard work and ability to change, as the key to her commercial success.[209] Reporter Michael McWilliams commented: "The gripes about Madonna — she's cold, greedy, talentless — conceal both bigotry and the essence of her art, which is among the warmest, the most humane, the most profoundly satisfying in all pop culture."[210]
