    I enjoyed the book obviously 15 years have gone by since it was published but still probably holds up well It s been a few years since I ve thought about Madonna but she was a big part of growing up I wouldn t say I idolized her or wanted to be her but she had some great songs and always seemed to me to live her life on her terms for better or worse it seems from this.

    It is an unauthorized biography of the icon I picked it up because of her strong persona And since 2014 is my brave year, it is perfect read for January.Madonna is idolized by Myrene or Maps Academia who is a bass guitarist I adore I imagined she read this so I hope to do the same Gaya gaya lang.The book trace back the history of her ancestor particularly her father Her mother died early on when she was five years old Her passion to dancing taught her discipline and make her ambitious I like how people perceive her Very driven by fame to the point of exhaustion She is also lucky because she works hard at finding luck I did not know that she is straight A student and a cheerleader in her school days She almost finished her dance degree in University of Michigan but her impatience as well as following her mentor advise she went to New York The big apple did not welcome her well But she had big plans and after all she discover she can also sing and entertain people not only by just dancing but by stripping Sexy is the image she embrace and a taboo at that time Gays, bisexuals and blacks adore her Her first single even portrays her as a black woman The stories might be magnified because they want the masses to speculate, to clamor for and to prove she is special She works on the magic of others A lot of people are drawn to her because she is very passionate on her art She wants people to remember her Her legacy is inevitable.

    I quite enjoyed Andrew Morton s take on the life and career of Madonna From her modest Italian American upbringing, to her days as a dance major in Ann Arbor who knew , to her early days in New York which sound like something out of Rent , the book s first half reads like a Horatio Alger success story Once a recording contract and MTV come calling, her career trajectory is pure nostalgia for any kid of the 80s You ll remember where you were when you first saw the video for Lucky Star, first heard about or saw the MTV video music awards performance of Like A Virgin, and recall the monstrosity of her marriage to Sean Penn Most likely you didn t see her movies I know I didn t but her music will act as a soundtrack to her life and yours.What s not to love Although I am not a particular fan of Madonna Ray of Light and Confessions of the Dance Floor are two exceptions , her career is certainly interesting And, like any icon, her life is connected to your life That is what makes these bios fun.

    The beginning few chapters are slow cause it talks about her italian family ancestors and how her parents met When Madonna was born the chapters were most interesting This is written by hear say and by people she knew so not sure how much is really true From all the documentaries I ve read about Madonna they all seem to be the same about her character as a hard, street smart, star driven no matter how many people she used and hurt in the business to get noticed I ve always been a big fan of hers and see why she s always been a strong driven woman that did it all by doing it herself to become famous The book goes thru out her life up to being married to Guy Ritchie The last few chapters gets slow again when she is married to Guy Ritchie and her Kabalah lifestyle.

    An in depth look at the carefully constructed making of an icon, what drove her outrageous behavior and her insatiable hunger for fame No surprise at her rud illuminati affiliations because her need for adulation and love seemed to have broken her moral ethical compass, but I do give her tremendous credit for her exemplary work ethic, her shrewd business sense, her strength as a woman, her musical genius, being a visionary, for pushing creative boundaries and for being am amazing icon especially in the 80 s and 90 s when we knew her as Madonna a time when music defined our culture and we had the larger than life personas like Michael and Janet, Whitney, etc.

    Absolutely dreadful He gets good stories from people who once knew Madonna, but blows any shred of credibility by getting simple facts wrong One such glaring error is Morton repeatedly referring to the movie Shanghai Surprise as Shanghai Express Shanghai Express is a Marlene Dietrich movie from 1932, 26 years before Madonna was even born These aren t obscure facts, they can very easily be found on any fan run Madonna website As interesting as some of the stories are, any book that has quite obviously not had even the slightest bit of fact checking simply is not credible 20 minutes on Google would have saved this book.

    Since falling in love with Madonna s music a few months ago, I felt the need to read up on her life Andrew Morton writes very clearly and with just enough detail, and his British perspective made the book all the interesting He makes you fall in love with, pity, and sometimes despise Madonna Since she is so out there and versatile in her work, the range of emotions and viewpoints this book presents is appropriate The con to the book is that it was published in the early 2000s so I think a sequel is in order.

    Not a well written biography The chronology was difficult to follow with the author reaching ahead in time to draw a connection I prefer reaching back and reminding me of pertinent connections I disagree with some who felt the author was too infatuated with Madonna to tell it like it is In fact, he s quite critical of her hypocrisy and other fallibilities most notably her acting I enjoyed learning about Madonna s psychological make up and some of the stories behind her songs, as well as how hard she worked to become a star.

    This 2001 title may be too older for people interested in the Madonna of the last decade, but it is fine for me I was mostly interested it it was actually true she was from Rochester, Michigan she is and what her earliest music days were like she gave up a promising universigty start dancing on the stage in order to live the gutter life playing drums in a punk band at CBGB s I dig that However, her trodding over friendships to climb the ladder and shallow approach to her sex life belittled her in my eyes

    I read this book when it came out, and I really thought the writer was kissing Madges ass throughout I was only 18 when I read this and I was a little naive but I was really curious to understand the childhood of Madonna then After finishing the book I just felt like the writer really wanted to please his subject and not say anything negative Almost 10 years later I read her brothers biography on his relationship with Madonna and I realized that even though Christophers Ciccones bio is less professionally written he s a lot honest in how complicated his sister is.
