Madonna has been in the public eye for over 30 years now, and in that time, she’s given us quite a few memorable moments. She’s never shied away from controversy, proving herself quite adept at doing things that make some people very uncomfortable. In honor of today, her 56th birthday, let’s take a look at all the moments that proved Madge was the ultimate bad girl.
Performing ‘Like A Virgin’ at the 1984 MTV VMAs
After experiencing a fair amount of success with her debut, Madonna truly became huge with release of her sophomore effort, Like A Virgin. The title track became the album’s biggest hit, and arguably her most iconic song. A big part of why was this legendary performance she gave at the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards. Performing a song in a wedding dress is always going to be an attention-grabber, but performing a song about virginity while wearing a whiter-than-white wedding gown? Now, that’s gonna get people talking.
