Madonna is considered the most influential and successful singer in the history of contemporary music and knew how to become a popular culture icon. Throughout his career, he continually reinvented both his music and his image, and is a source of inspiration for other musicians and even for the cinema.
The American was born 63 years ago as Madonna Louise Ciccone in Bay County, Michigan, and was such an outstanding student in college that she managed to enter the University of Michigan to study dance. However, she left her studies and in the 1980s she joined the band Breakfast Club, thanks to which a producer met her and recommended her.
The man introduced her to Seymour Stein, founder of the Warner Bros. Records label Sire Records, and from then on, it’s all history. Madonna was positioned as the Queen of pop around the world and reaped a fortune of $ 570 million, which allowed to have a life of luxury.
All the properties that Madonna had
The house you bought Madonna in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, it is part of the project called “The World”, which consists of urbanizing six islands. It has 1,400 square meters, a private beach, its own jetty and, the most amazing thing, is the living room: it has underwater views that allow you to see all aquatic animals.
The queen of pop has a luxurious apartment there located in Harperley Hall on the Upper West Side, precisely at the intersection of 64th Street and Central Park West. The building was built entirely in 1911 by designer Henry W. Wilkinson, who was inspired by the Arts & Crafts style.
The duplex is a junction between the 5th and 6th floors, and it is huge: the ceiling measures three meters, it has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, five wood-burning fireplaces and a eat-in kitchen. Many surfaces, such as the kitchen and bathroom countertops, are marble and most of the details are dark wood.
This property was offered to Meghan Martkle and Prince Harry, when they became independent from the British Crown and initially decided to live in Canada. “Buckingham Palace cannot compete with Central Park West,” Madonna jokingly told him in a tweet.
Madonna bought the singer The Weeknd a mansion of about 12,000 square meters located in the exclusive neighborhood of Hidden Hills. It has nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a separate guest house from the main house, a huge gallery to relax and a pool in the middle of a huge garden.
Portugal is another of the countries in which Madonna decided to live with her children and there she acquired a 17th century palace-boutique called “Palacio Ramalhete”. It is a little smaller than the previous ones, but just as beautiful: it has a heated outdoor pool, an area to place a bar, 12 rooms that the singer has modified to make it more modern.
The interpreter of “Like a Virgin” knows that her six children need large spaces so that each one has privacy and, without a doubt, she knows how to choose their homes. Currently, they live in the Hidden Hills mansion, where he spent the entire quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, and at the moment, he has no plans to move.
