    Default Birthday Suite: Madonna

    Career and music are puppets that dance to her tunes. The show-stopper, the ruler of charts and a believer of self, she can sell her rhyme at will!
    Madonna Ciccone flew to New York to pursue ballet at the age of 13 and, today, at the age of 52, she is perched on a treasure chest, the net worth of which is $325 million, making her the fourth richest woman in world entertainment.
    On the occasion of her 53rd birthday, here is a lowdown on the Madonna phenomenon.
    Thank you bala

    In one of her Pepsi commercials, she debuted her song 'Like a Prayer'. The corresponding music video featured many Catholic symbols such as stigmata and burning crosses, and a dream about making love to a saint, leading the Vatican to condemn the video. Religious groups sought to ban the commercial and boycott Pepsi products. Pepsi revoked the commercial and canceled her sponsorship contract.

    The follow-up track 'Material Girl', included a promotional video which introduced one of Madonna's most characteristic visual styles, the mimicking of Marilyn Monroe's "blonde bombshell" image.

    The extravagant costumes and choreography of the 'Blond Ambition' world tour, which followed, were the proof to Madonna's uninhibited melange of sexuality, song, dance and religiosity.

    Madonna's reputation as a strong businesswoman, in control of each aspect of her career, was confirmed in 1992 when she signed a multi-million dollar deal with the Time-Warner conglomerate, parent company of Sire. This guaranteed the release of albums, films and books created by her own Maverick production company.

    The publication of her graphic and erotic book 'Sex' put her on top of the charts and was in the bestselling books list. This book was an unprecedented success, selling out within hours and needing an immediate reprint.

    It is said that if you have the right idols in place, your empathy towards them will bring you success. Madonna's got hers right. Her idols include vocal legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Prince and Chaka Khan.
