'Stunning' nude shot of Madonna expected to fetch £5,000
Nicki Minaj: 'I didn't realise Madonna knew about me'

It was 30 years ago today....

It may seem like only yesterday but 30 years ago on April 24, 1982, Sire Records honcho Seymour Stein released a single called 'EVERYBODY' on Warner Bros. Records by an unknown singer from Rochester, Michigan by the name of Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone.

To say the world would never be the same is an understatement. The song went on to become a huge dancefloor hit and was heard all over the radio in the Summer of 1982.

That little girl from Michigan would go on to become one of the most famous entertainers and cultural icons in history - selling millions of records and remaining a star of enormous magnitude and influence for the next 30 years. She's just getting started.

Long Live the Queen and Happy Anniversary to Madonna!

"Everybody" may have been recorded in April 1982, or Madonna may have been signed to Sire on that date. "Everybody" was released in October 1982. The song was a DJ's pick on WDAS FM in Philly, where I'm from, and fell in love with the song when I first heard it. I bought the 12" single, along with Kelly Marie's "Feels Like I'm In Love," with money I had just got for my birthday; which is in October. Liz really needs to bone up on her client.

BTW, I think you do a brilliant job on this site. It's wonderful.


Really? Madonna.com says RELEASE DATE: 06 OCTOBER 1982
So does Madonna facebook page. Wiki says 24 Apr but that's referenced Madoona.com which says October ... So not time to celebrate just yet.


God Save The Queen! :) x


Cheers to the QUEEN!


I Love You, Madonna :)
