Which of Madonna's many hits do you think is the best?
'Madonna' was released on this day (July 27th) in 1983.
Can you believe it's been 35 years to the day since Madonna dropped her self-titled debut album? And still it remains as relevant to the world of pop as it ever was. She's a stalwart in the development of modern music and will always be true musical royalty.
Madonna - 'Madonna'
Madonna was just 24 when she embarked on her musical career in 1982, signing to Sire Records following the success of her debut single 'Everybody', and less than a year later releasing her first album 'Madonna' which reached the top 10 in both the UK and the US.

But Madonna's floor-length, star-spangled silk number in blue, designed by Stella McCartney, was the epitome of elegant Hollywood glamour - complete with her red lipstick and humble blonde curls.

It's time to accept the natural form of a female body.
It's sad that we have to live in a society where a perfectly natural part of the human body makes headline news. But, unfortunately, that's exactly what's happened with Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon, who happened to be sporting unshaved armpits in a recent photograph with her mother.

The 21-year-old gave a huge red-lipped grin as she reached backwards to hug her famous mother who was cradling her face in a gorgeous New Year shot that Madonna posted on Instagram this week. It was a beautiful candid moment, but few people cared about that.

Madonna won an undisclosed sum from Associated Newspapers after MailOnline published an article about the adoption of her twin daughters from Malawi earlier this year.
Madonna has won a payout from the publishers of MailOnline at the High Court in London, following a “serious invasion of privacy” following her adoption of twin girls from Malawi earlier this year.
The 58 year old pop megastar signed a deal on Thursday (July 27th) accepting an undisclosed sum in damages from Associated Newspapers, who publish MailOnline. The case against them concerned the four year old twin girls, Stella and Estere, whom Madonna adopted from Malawi in February this year.
The singer brought the case in January, after MailOnline published a report revealing the girls’ names, race, age, the fact they lived in an orphanage in Malawi, and Madonna's application to adopt them.
An emergency court order granted earlier this week prevented the Gotta Have It! memorabilia business from auctioning Madonna's personal items.
Madonna has blocked the auctioning of personal items, including a letter sent to her from prison by the later rapper Tupac Shakur and a pair of worn underwear, after winning an emergency court order in New York.
The eleventh-hour court order was granted on Tuesday (July 18th) by Manhattan Supreme Court Gerald Leibovitz, who ordered Gotta Have It! Collectibles to remove many items related to Madonna from theirrock and roll-themed auction and site, it has been confirmed by E! News.
“I was shocked to learn of the planned auctioning of the Shakur letter, as I had no idea that the Shakur letter was no longer in my possession,” according to the original report by Page Six.

“She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap on the ass,” the singer said admiringly of the barista and would-be model standing next to her, but nobody in the crowd could have been prepared for what then happened.
