Possibly the most prolific artist in history, Madonna was born Madonna Louise Ciccone in Bay City, MI, in August 1958. She is often known as the “Queen of Pop”, as her music has influenced almost every female pop singer to some degree. She released her first album, Madonna, in 1983. However, it was re-released as Madonna: The First Album in 1985.
Madonna has also had a budding career as an actress, and starred in a variety of different films. She also sang the title theme for the James Bond movie “Die Another Day”, released in 2002. She most recently starred in “Arthur and the Invisibles” (2006), a comedy/fantasy translated to English from French.
