* CrucifiedHeroShot: Madonna had herself "crucified" on a glittery disco ball-like cross with a crown of thorns on her head during a live performance of "Live To Tell" from the Confessions Tour.



--> ''You know how religion is, guys get to do everything. They get to be altar boys. They get to stay out late. Take their shirts off in the summer. They get to pee standing up. They get to fuck a lot of girls and not worry about getting pregnant. Although that doesn't have anything to do with being religious.''

* RaisedCatholic: Okay, she may dance provocatively in front of religious symbols but they're ''Catholic'' religious symbols. The symbolism in ''Like A Prayer'' is Catholic, and overall it probably takes a Catholic to piss the Church off so many times. She said in an interview that she's a lapsed Catholic: "there are certain things in Catholicism [...] that I can't get rid of." She also named her daughter (Lourdes) after a Catholic pilgrimage site.

2012 saw the release of her twelfth studio album ''MDNA'', launched by a single featuring Music/NickiMinaj and Music/{{MIA}}, and not to mention a major SuperBowl halftime performance as well. It was a return to her dance-pop sound. However, it wasn't the comeback people were expecting. Many fans blame it on poor choices for lead singles and lack of promotion from Madonna. In December 2014, '''30''' songs from the recording sessions of Madonna's upcoming 13th album were leaked, even before Madonna even properly announced the album. Due to this, Madonna announced that her 13th album, entitled ''Rebel Heart'', would be released on March 10, 2015.

By this time, Madonna landed a supporting cast role in ''Film/DesperatelySeekingSusan'' (1985), playing the title character Susan. The film was a commercial and critical hit, and was the first of many movie roles for Madonna. Unfortunately, her follow-up films ''Shanghai Surprise'' (1986, with then-husband Creator/SeanPenn) and ''Who's That Girl'' (1987) didn't fare as well.

** In the video for "Open Your Heart," one of her stripper's many admirers is a military woman. In 1986, being homosexual in the military was grounds for a dishonorable discharge.



* IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney: One reason given for her nude photos taken pre-fame in 1978.

* ParodyAssistance: Remarked in a casual conversation, “When is [[WeirdAlYankovic Weird Al]] gonna make 'Like a Surgeon'?” Word got back to Weird Al, and [[AsYouKnow the rest is history]]. Weird Al has said this is the only time he has made a parody based off the orginator’s suggestion.
