In a career spanning three decades, Madonna has produced a record-breaking run of hit singles and albums, starred in films, and staged some of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time. But she is more than just a pop singer and actress. She is an icon of our times, and one who has continued to reinvent both herself and the very nature of celebrity ever since she first appeared with the song Holiday in 1983. "Madonna: Blond Ambition" is an authoritative chronicle of one of popular music's greatest stars, including detailed commentary on every album, tour, movie, music video, and more. It profiles key collaborators and investigates the many controversies Madonna has been embroiled in over the years, from her frequent run-ins with the Catholic Church to the taboo-busting sexualisation of her music and image in the 90s. The book also includes a timeline of the key events of her career and a selection of photographs. From "Vogue" to "Ray of Light", the Blonde Ambition tour to 2008s "Sticky and Sweet" shows, the Sex book to "The English Roses" ...it's all here.
