Born in Bay City, Michigan, a 19-year-old Madonna moved to New York City to pursue her dreams of becoming a star. While most of her story since relocating has been well chronicled, Madonna recently revealed that she was raped during her first year in the Big Apple. In a cover essay story with Harper’s Bazaar, the “Like A Virgin” singer revealed she was dragged up to a rooftop of a building at knifepoint and raped. Determined to make it in New York, Madonna said, “It was hard and it was lonely, and I had to dare myself every day to keep going.”
