<div>My favorite songs by Madonna are:</div><div><br></div><div>Vogue</div><div>Like a Prayer </div><div>Like a Virgin</div><div>Holiday </div><div>Material Girl</div>
<div>She started off doing small works and joined the band “The Breakfast Club.” She became famous in the mid-1980’s when her first Album titled “Madonna” was released. She soon became a household name. </div>
<div>She was different because of her fearlessness to do anything regardless of the social norm. She exploited her sexuality and knew how to rub it into the faces of conservative people. She was a symbol of feminism and strength because she didnt care what anyone thought. </div>
<div>Her style was revolutionary and today it is still often copied. She is always changing up her look with styles ranging from Geisha to military. She was most famous for her teased hair, layered clothes, heavy jewelry, lots of makeup, crucifixes, and lots of underwear worn outside of the clothes. Macys even created a clothing line called “Madonna Land” after her style. </div>
<div>Even today at 58 She still is making music and performing. In 2012 she performed at the super bowl halftime show and recently released an Album called “Music.” </div>
<div>She dominated every aspect of the entertainment world. She was a singer, dancer, Author, Songwriter, and Actress. On top of all her top hits she also starred in a movie called Evita as well as many other small movies. A documentary called Truth or Dare was created about her life and career. She was in the broadway show “Speed the plow.” She also published 5 children's books. </div>
<div> In 1995 she set the record for the most top hits from a female artist. She has won numerous other awards and was put into the Rock and Roll hall of fame in 2008.</div>
<div>Some of her records include Something to Remember, Hard Candy, Music, Madonna, Like a Virgin, Breathless and Like a Prayer.</div>
<div>She made a huge impact on American Music. Today she has many copycats such as Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Kesha. She knew that sex and scandal sell and used public stunts to gain attention. She also used music videos to deal with tough subjects such as abortion and racism. Her style was bold and provocative. Today many artists copy her.</div>
