Madonna Raped At Knifepoint in New York

In Harper’s BAZAAR magazine, the icon herself penned an essay revealing her struggles of making it in the harsh music business and the criticism that is still surrounding the artist.

In the magazine which will be available on newsstands on Oct. 22, Madonna shocked the world as she reveals a picture of her first time in the’big city’ alone.

“This wasn’t anything I prepared for in Rochester, Michigan. Trying to be a professional dancer, paying my rent by posing nude for art classes, staring at people staring at me naked. Daring them to think of me as anything but a form they were trying to capture with their pencils and charcoal. I was defiant. Hell-bent on surviving. On making it. But it was hard and it was lonely, and I had to dare myself every day to keep going,” she writes of her time in NYC.

She also explains in her article just how much of herself she had to “give up.” “New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and
had my apartment broken into three times. I don’t know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time.” This shocking confession shows that Madonna is a true survivor.

Madonna’s ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Interview: 
When you hear the name Madonna, we think of the woman who transformed pop music, a lady who is glamorous and transcendent, and a woman that is beautiful and flawless — but her teen years were anything but. The singer wrote about the fact that being ‘yourself,’ doesn’t always mean that you’ll be popular and your peers will accept you — who could not like Madonna? “Most people thought I was strange. I didn’t have many friends; I might not have had any friends. But it all turned out good in the end, because when you aren’t popular and you don’t have a social life, it gives you more time to focus on your future. And for me, that was going to New York to become a REAL artist. To be able to express myself in a city of nonconformists. To revel and shimmy and shake in a world and be surrounded by daring people.”
