Madonna reveals rape ordeal

Oct 4 2013, 4:36pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Madonna was raped at the start of her career.

The pop legend has opened up about her traumatic ordeal for the first time in nearly two decades, revealing she was sexually abused by a stranger at knifepoint shortly after arriving in New York City from Rochester, Michigan, to pursue her dreams of stardom.

Writing in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine, the 55-year-old singer recalled: "New York wasn't everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back.

"I had my apartment broken into three times. I don't know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time."

The 'Like a Prayer' singer was determined to survive in the Big Apple in spite of her terrible experiences and was all the more "hell-bent" on making a name for herself, even if it meant doing jobs she didn't like.

Madonna explained: "Arriving in New York wasn't anything I prepared for. Trying to be a professional dancer, paying my rent by posing nude for art classes, staring at people staring at me naked. Daring them to think of me as anything but a form they were trying to capture with their pencils and charcoal.

"I was defiant. Hell-bent on surviving. On making it. But it was hard and it was lonely, and I had to dare myself every day to keep going."

The superstar first made the shocking admission she had been raped when she was younger in a 1995 interview with NME, but hasn't dwelled upon it since.

She confessed at the time: "It is not an experience I would ever glamorize. Although it was devastating at the time, I know that it made me a much stronger person. . . . It forced me to be a survivor."

Bringing an end to her Australian tour, Lady Gaga checked out of her snazzy suite in Sydney on Monday morning (September 1). The “Just Dance” songstress was greeted by a huge crowd of fans as she left her hotel en route to the airport, sporting a furry black jacket with see-through black shorts, fishnet stockings and black lace-up boots. And at one point, her coat was brushed aside, showing everyone her thong underwear beneath her sheer shorts. In related news, Madonna’s ...

Aug 31 2014 7:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Lady Gaga has copied Madonna many times over her career. Gaga’s music sounds so much like Madonna’s music. Gaga has copied Madonna’s look at times. Gaga has copied Madonna’s whole vibe at times, only Gaga has usually put some coked-out spin on it. Madonna has thrown shade at Gaga over the years in her very Madonna sort of way, never outright slamming Gaga but just letting everyone know that she (Mad ...

The rank of mega-stars who are known simply by one name includes, of course, Madonna, Cher, Beyonce and Bono. Oh, and one more, surely — that man-boy known as Screech. Samuel “Screech” Powers of the 1990s TV show Saved by the Bell has become almost an icon — for gross ineptitude. He was adorkable before there was such a thing. He even had a catchphrase: “Zoinks!” ...

In the past, Lady Gaga has acknowledged that she owes a significant debt of gratitude to Madonna, and with good reason. The 56-year-old Instagram exhibitionist was doing the whole blonde shock-pop thing before the Mother Monster was even born.
