Urban Myths: Madonna And Basquait

The Sky Arts comedy drama series features an episode about Madonna and Basquait. The episode stars Sophie Kennedy Clark, Calvin Demba, Paul Kaye and David Bamber.

Before she was famous, Madonna had a short but passionate and influential relationship with Jean Michel Basquiat, a pioneer and darling of the 1980s New York art scene. Basquiat was riding high while Madonna was a coat check girl, but she already had the self-belief to know she had something special.

This myth takes place across one night on the New York subway, just before she infamously door-stepped music producer Seymour Stein at his hospital bedside where he signed her on the spot. This is a poignant moment, before Basquiat's untimely death and just before Madonna broke through to 'take over the motherfucking world'.
