Many of the celebrities in the world today went through difficulties in their quest for success. After going through all the toils at the start of their career, they eventually made it big.

In 1978, Madonna dropped out of college, after which she relocated to New York City, a move she once described as the bravest thing she did in her life.

While in New York City, the rising star had a rough start and was cash-strapped. To earn money for herself, she began working at Dunkin' Donuts in Times Square.

However, it is reported that Madonna did not last a day on the job, with her managers relieving her of her duties after she squirted jelly filling all over a customer.

She moved on to several fast foods and waitressing jobs before her introduction into New York City's rock music scene. The low-paying jobs Madonna did in the early stages of her career were necessary.

They were to help her find her feet in the city, but she always knew she would be a star. In the early 1980s, the "Queen of Pop" performed in New York dance clubs for bands like the Millionaires, and Modern Dance.

She got her big break when she signed a contract with Sire Records, affiliated to Warner Bros. Records. Madonna released her self-titled album in July 1983.

She has released 13 more albums and sold millions of records ever since. She is also regarded by Billboard as the most successful solo artist in the Hot 100 chart history, coming second to The Beatles.

Besides her great music, Madonna is also famed for her movie roles and has starred in famous movies like "Desperately Seeking Susan," "Madonna: Truth or Dare," and "Bloodhounds of Broadway."

Madonna has had several incarnations in her accomplished career and constantly reinvented herself every decade of her life. She has also contributed to a cultural change with her personality, music, and style.

Some of her notable contributions to a shift in culture include turning her confidence and style into movie stardom, making the world dance with her multiple hits, and making the world see nudity from another perspective.

Madonna has been married twice in her life. She was married to Sean Penn from 1985 to 1989, and Guy Ritchie from 2000 to 2008.

She is a mother to six adopted children, Mercy, twins Stella and Esther, David, Rocco, and Lourdes. The Pop Queen turned 62 on August 16. However, her music, style, and legacy will continue to be timeless.
