Madonna

Biography: Madonna shot to stardom in the early 1980s with her catchy pop songs and sexy, eye-catching videos. The provocative diva ruled the charts for decades by repeatedly reinventing herself, both aesthetically and musically, and by constantly courting controversy, from her make-out session with a saint in the "Like a Prayer" video to her X-rated 1992 picture book Sex to her lip lock with Britney Spears at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards (which was viewed by many as Madonna's unique way of passing the torch to the next generation of pop stars). Her forays onto the big screen weren't as successful. She fared best when basically playing herself (Desperately Seeking Susan, Dick Tracy, the documentary Truth or Dare), but save for Evita, which earned her a Golden Globe, Madonna's attempts to be taken seriously as an actress (the wannabe screwball comedy Shanghai Surprise opposite first husband Sean Penn, the remake of Swept Away directed by her second husband, Guy Ritchie) were met withMadonna shot to stardom in the early 1980s with her catchy pop songs and sexy, eye-catching videos.

While Madonna hasn't exactly mellowed with age, she has shifted her focus. After years of a love-hate relationship with Catholicism, she became a very vocal follower of kabbalah. She also became a mother of four, an author of children's books and an active supporter of numerous charitable causes, including the non-profit Raising Malawi, which she founded in an effort to improve the lives of orphans in Malawi.
