“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you've come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.” - Madonna, Grammy Award-Winning Singer & Songwriter
Happy Birthday to the reigning Queen of Pop, Madonna — the seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter is turning 61 years old today. Madonna rose to popularity after the release of her self-titled debut album in 1983, quickly becoming one of MTV’s biggest stars, known for her provocative lyrics and boundary-pushing music videos. While her eponymous album eventually went platinum, it was Madonna’s follow-up — 1984’s “Like A Virgin — that skyrocketed the Material Girl to international stardom, topping the music charts and creating fashion trends that would define the decade. Having sold more than 300 million records worldwide, Madonna is noted as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records and is the most successful solo artist in the history of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
