The Face (January 1985)

"Manipulating people, that’s what I’m good at." Madonna says it matter-of-factly. and smiles. Her upper lip stretches taut across her wide mouth, her teclh flash, and she laughs. The laugh says she’s making a joke, and you’re not meant to believe it. But the eyes tell you to believe. The wide round eyes, staring innocently but urgently at you implore you to believe her. She is serious. She’s a serious girl. Madonna wants desperately to be a star. A big star. Having a Number One single and a Num

Star Hits (December 1984)

I have sunglasses on right now because my eyes are killing me," apologizes Madonna. "I haven’t slept in three days and a friend of mine is in jail right now and I just found out last night… ugh, forget it, it’s a long story, but never a dull moment in my life." She’s just wrapped up a day’s worth of meetings between her manager and Nile Rogers, who’s producing her new LP "Like A Virgin." The album, which will feature tracks called "Dress You Up," "Material Girl" and "Angel," will be released as

Smash Hits (February 1984)

As she swans down the grand staircase of Manchester’s lavish Brittania Hotel, Madonna looks every inch a star. A rare quality in this day and age when pop stars can get away with a daft haircut, a rather arty video and very little else. In fact, a lot of people are labelling this 23-year-old from Detroit, America, as some sort of female equivalent to Michael Jackson. Not surprising when you consider she can sing, dance and act and once shared the same manager as Mr Jackson. She’s just appeared

Island (October 1983)

Her father named her. But that was her mother’s name as well. Madonna. She’s top of the charts now with her hit songs: Holiday, Burning Up, Everybody, Physical Attraction. Pop tunes with a disco/soul feel and many are sruprised to learn she’s not black but a greeneyed white blond fireplug with a teen London/Bronx look. Actually she’s from the Detroit area, smelly Bay City. When she turned seventeen she moved to New York because her father wouldn’t let her date boys. He wanted her to stay a virgi

Peter Hook blasts Madonna

The former New Order and Joy Division bassist told Absolute Radio he met the star on the night of her first British concert – at cult Manchester nightclub The Hacienda which he co-ran – and said she was “horrible” and “used” people. He said: “Madonna’s like a Black Widow spider. She tends to use people, then they shrivel up and disappear. Peter, 53, revealed that a friend – who was managing Madonna at the time – persuaded him to let her sing in the club for cult TV programme ‘The Tube’ but she

Sophia Loren on Madonna

‘I only met her once, at a premiere. I was waiting outside with a group of people, surrounded by photographers, and she was walking towards us. I said, “Madonna, come here,” because she looked so alone, and we were photographed together. She was charming and very respectful to me, but you know, she looked very lonely.’

Lady Gaga on Madonna and SNL

“I love her, she’s always been an idol of mine and she’s been so nice to me – I think I can say now that we’re friends, which feels a bit weird,” she told Grazia Australia. “I love her daughter Lourdes. She is such a lovely young girl. She came to my show with her mom and we got along famously.” In the sketch, the duo argued over who was hotter before getting into a catfight. “We were thinking, what do our fans want to see? And we thought, they want to see us fight. I was pulling her hair and
