1. the Italian name for the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus

2. a pop entertainer who has some decent songs and does stupid image things to start controversies and sell albums and other items like her book "Sex". Some of her videos have offended many people and some of them have even been banned by MTV, VH1 and other video networks and programs. They have featured things like sex with a dead man, burning crosses, S & M scenes, violence, her in a VERY tight sweater (Vogue)and more. She has posed for smut mags and porno flicks. Her current tour features a skit where she acts as a dominitrix and sings while strapped to a cross, mocking Jesus. The shitty teen pop phenomenon (Britney, Xtina, etc.) is entirely inspired by Madonna, so she has a lot to answer for.
1. I saw a Madonna and child painting at the art museum today.

2. While on tour in Italy Madonna invited the pope to see her show in Rome. Needless to say, he didn't go. He, the local Jewish community and the local Muslim community asked her not to reenact the mock crucifixion scene in her Rome show. She did it anyway.

1.
An extremely talented marketer, who over more than twenty years has excelled in the aggressive selling of an otherwise not particularly desirable product -- herself. A triumph of style over substance. Her acting talent was recognized by her being awarded a special “Worst actress of the century” Razzie at the 2000 Golden Raspberry awards. (Has since seen the light and given up on acting). Also an author, her best known work being 1992’s “Sex”, which was sold sealed in plastic -- not because it was obscene, but because no one would have bought it if they were able to see how lame the contents really were. Also supposedly a musician.
Madonna has staying power in the public eye, although I've never been able to figure out why.

A woman who is something of a paradox.

She has achieved the status of being one of the most successful female singers of all time, despite not having a particularly good voice and only being of average attractiveness.

Her success could be ascribed to 'strength of character', but, also paradoxically, she is an incredibly shallow, vacuous person, known for changing her 'personality' and image every few years in order to lengthen her career.

Her latest fad is to take children from Africa to use as fashion accessories. She is currently affecting a peculiar accent in a pretentious attempt to apparently try to sound 'english'. Has a reputation for being rude, ungracious and self-obsessed.

Has dabbled in acting at which she has proved to be a notable failure and a laughing stock, as she doesn't have any depth within her own character to draw on when creating roles.
When the Madonna (Ritchie) family visited Madame Tussaud's Museum, Madonna's husband had a conversation with her wax model for 10 minutes before realising his wife had moved on to another exhibit.

A very talented musician, actress, business woman and innovator.

Musically, she has written the majority of her songs and is influenced by many musicians prior to her including David Bowie and Prince. Her music videos have gained millions of views on internet sites such as YouTube.

She is also an author, and has written multiple children books (most becoming best sellers).
