Iconic Madonna Moments
Madonna doesn’t need an introduction. The entertainer turns 55 today and it’s hard to keep track of all she’s achieved in her 34 years in showbiz. She’s given the world 12 studio albums (and won heaps of awards for them), mind-blowing performances that often veer on the controversial side, and has worked in front of and behind the camera, with several film projects and documentaries. On top of that she’s also authored children’s books, come out with a fashion line (Material Girl) and been heavily involved in charity work, founding the organisation Raising Malawi, which is where her two adopted children David Banda and Mercy James are from. Her personal life, which has seen her linked to high profile men such as Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie, also keeps her in the spotlight — she’s still seeing 25-year-old French dancer Brahim Zaibat.
We’re celebrating Madonna’s birthday with a look back at some of her iconic moments, from the cone bra to her kiss with Britney Spears to some of her most eyebrow-raising looks.
