A pop diva of the 1980s, Madonna created a raunchy blonde bombshell persona that propelled such music-video hits as "Like a Virgin" (1984), "Material Girl" (1985), "Like a Prayer" (1989), "Vogue" (1990) and "Justify My Love" (1991). A high-energy performer of aggressively sexual and irreverent material who has been called "the queen of bimbo rock" and a "punk Mae West", Madonna has outraged many with her messages of assertiveness and kinky sexuality as well as her outrageously suggestive costuming.
