She is widely admired for her independence, self-confidence, refusal to compromise and willingness to take a risk. But while much of her life seems to be an open book, a closer look suggests that it is Madonna herself who controls what we read. In this new paperback format of his best-selling title Madonna, Andrew Morton speaks to those in her inner circle about her ambitions, lifestyle and relationships with family, friends and men. Their stories and insights give a fresh and revealing perspective on arguably the most famous woman on the planet. Andrew Morton sheds light on what powers the Madonna phenomenon and examines whether the face she presents today is that of a woman who is fulfilled personally and professionally, or one who is still seeking a more perfect Madonna.Hide synopsis

Her complicated relationships with men and women, her sexual encounters, abortions, marriages, divorce, music, movies, obsession with being famous, and children born out of wedlock are all revealed.

Product Description At the age of forty-three, with a career that spans two decades and ranges from the scandalous to the transcendent, Madonna is a bigger phenomenon than ever. But who is the private woman behind the public image? Andrew Morton, whose #1 New York Times bestsellers about Princess Diana and Monica Lewinsky have proved his ability to gain access to insiders who won't talk to anyone else, answers that question in this decidedly unauthorized biography. Morton's extensive, in-depth interviews with members of Madonna's inner circle-lovers, friends (even as far back as school friends), and business connections, many of whom have never spoken before now-allow him to go behind the carefully constructed myths to unmask the real Madonna. Andrew Morton is able to make startling revelations, among them the real story of Madonna's family background; the events behind the violent attack that changed her views on sex and men; her relationships with Michael Jackson, Prince, John F. Kennedy Jr., Vanilla Ice, and other rock and Hollywood stars; the mystery man she wanted to marry; and the darkest days of her career when she threatened to quit show business. From motherless child to wife and mother, from "boy toy" to fiercely independent diva, Madonna is one of the most remarkable women of our time.
