Madonna dropped out of the University of Michigan in 1978 to pursue her dreams of being an artist in New York. What greeted her was a city that was harsher than she could have imagined.

“New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be,” the pop icon wrote in an essay in the current issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “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, and 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 pop-icon-in-the-making found her new home to be exhilarating, but also the sort of place her childhood in the suburbs of Detroit hadn’t prepared her for.

“But I was also scared sh–less and freaked out by the smell of p— and vomit everywhere, especially in the entryway of my third-floor walk-up,” she wrote.

She never gave up on trying to become a professional dancer, doing what it did to chase her dreams, including working as a nude model for art classes to pay her rent.

“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,” she wrote.

An ‘absolutely stunning’ photograph of Madonna posing naked on a bed while smoking a cigarette has sold for nearly £15,000.

The sum is three times the estimate placed on the image that was taken in 1990 during the period when the singer had bleach-blonde hair and dark eye make-up.

It is a black and white photo and Madonna has her breasts exposed and just a white sheet covering her pudenda while she lies on a bed.

She is holding a cigarette to her pouting lips and has adopted a sexy, sultry pose. During the year it was taken the star went on her ‘Blond Ambition Tour.’

The performer said at the time, when she was aged about 31: ‘I know that I’m not the best singer and I know that I’m not the best dancer.

‘But, I can f*****g push people’s buttons and be as provocative as I want. The tour’s goal is to break useless taboos.’

The photograph was taken by Steven Meisel and was signed and annotated ‘ed no.1’. It was snapped up by an anonymous collector.

It measured 21.5 inches by 19 inches and was originally bought by the vendor from a New York gallery.

The photograph, which was taken by the same photographer who did the work for Madonna’s 1992 book ‘Sex’, was sold by Bonhams in New York.

Judith Eurich from the saleroom said: ‘It is an absolutely stunning image and it is just a beautiful tone of grey. It is not just black and white it is grey and silvery.

‘Madonna was posing for a number of photographers at the time this was taken in the 1990s when she was in her early 30s.

‘She was going through a phase of having bleach blonde hair and heavy dark eye make-up that gave her a dramatic look – and of course she has a gorgeous body.

‘She is a very healthy person and I’d imagine the cigarette is just a prop to make her look sexy and sultry.’

The price paid was $23,750 or £14,761.

Madonna May Be Charged For Speaking Out On Gay Rights In Russia

According to ABC News,  Pop singer Madonna has ignited controversy on both sides of a new anti-gay law in St Petersburg, Russia.

The Material Girl said in a  Facebook posting this week that she plans to speak out against the law during an Aug. 9 concert in the city.

“I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed,” Madonna wrote on Wednesday.

“I don’t run away from adversity. I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity,” she added.

The law, which took effect March 11, in part prohibits “the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia among minors.”

Gay rights activists say it would criminalize even reading, writing or speaking about gay, lesbian, or transgender people. Violations can carry hefty fines, ranging from about $170 for individuals up to $16,700 or organizations and businesses.

The bill’s author, city assemblyman Vitaly Milanov, says he wants Madonna charged under the new law if she speaks out against it during her concert. He said he was willing to attend the show “to control its moral content.”

“I’m ready to personally suffer a couple of hours of her concert,” he told the Russian Interfax news agency.

Madonna spoke out after an  op-ed by Masha Gessen, a Moscow-based Russian-American journalist, was published in the New York Times on Monday calling on Madonna to cancel the show and urging tourists and businesses to boycott the city.

For some gay rights advocates her pledge to use the venue to denounce the new law was not enough.

A group of Russian gay rights advocates plans to picket the concert, saying Madonna is cashing in on their struggle and urging her to cancel the show.

“The law will stay in force, Madonna will leave and the Russian LGBT-community will be humiliated even more,” Nikolai Aleksev, the head of the LGBT  advocacy group Gay Russia,  wrote on his blog.

Homosexuality was banned in the Soviet Union and was only decriminalized in 1993, though it was still declared a mental disorder until 1999. It remains highly taboo in Russia.

Laws similar to the St Petersburg legislation are now being considered in other regions and the speaker of the Russian Parliament, the Duma, has promised to weigh endorsing it at a national level.

Madonna has slammed M.I.A. for herteenageantics during their Super Bowl performance.

TheMusichitmaker admits she was disappointed in the British rapperwho caused controversy when flipped her middle finger at the camera during her appearance forGimme all your Luvin‘ – because she didnt feel her antics were appropriate for the prestigious Super Bowl XLVI Half Time Show last weekend.

Madonna told KIIS-FM DJ Ryan Seacrest: “I wasnt happy about it. I understand its kind of punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, it seemed negative.

Its one of those things, its such a teenager. in a way, kind of irrelevant kind of thing to do. There was such a feeling of love and unity there, what was the point? It was just out of place.”

Despite her comments, Madonna admitted she didnt know about the incident until afterwards.

She added: “To tell you the truth, I didnt even know about it. I didnt know about it until I left. I found out about it in the elevator, actually.

I was really surprised. I didnt know anything about it.”

TV station NBC Sports have already issued an apology over M.I.A.’s actions.

A spokesperson said: “We apologise for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime. It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.”

According to TMZ,  Elton John‘s husband David Furnish LASHED OUT at Madonna following her victory speech at the Golden Globes last night … saying it was “embarrassing in its narcissism.”

Moments after Madge won the statue for Best Original Song, Furnish went to his Facebook page and WENT OFF … writing, “Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!”

For the record — Elton was nominated in the same category and seemed pissed off in the crowd when Madonna’s name was read.

But David continued on Facebook … writing, “Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.”

Elton seemed particularly bitter towards Madonna BEFORE the awards … telling one reporter on the red carpet he believed Madge had no “f**kin’ chance” of emerging victorious.
