Photo of 21 year old Madonna
Young Madonna wanted nothing more than to get in front of millions of people and perform. Initially she wanted to be a dancer but she also acted in her friend’s films. She grew up in a family full of kids, she was the oldest of eight, which made things hard on her as well as her parents. She often took care of her siblings while they her parents were at work, which meant that she cooked, cleaned, and made sure her brothers and sisters had everything they needed to survive. Even though she was taking care of important business she still resented being saddled with such adult responsibilities.
