by Vincent Salera 03 Aug 2018

Whether it’s from her music, films, or books, MADONNA has never been afraid to speak her mind, here are a few of my favorite quotes from the original Queen of pop culture.

1. “I’d love to be a memorable figure in the history of entertainment in some sexual, comic, tragic way. I’d like to leave the impression that Marilyn Monroe did, to be able to arouse so many different feelings in people.”

2. “Fame is a form of misunderstanding.”

3. “In the blink of an eye everything can change! Why waste time?‪”

4. “If it’s bitter at the start, then it’s sweeter in the end.”

5. “At least my cage is filled with light.”

6. “We all fall to the floor at some point. It’s how you pick yourself up that’s the real challenge. Isn’t it?”

7. “Poor is the man, whose pleasures depend on the permission of another”

8. “Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone…”

9. “I think the ultimate challenge is to have some kind of style and grace, even though you haven’t got money, or standing in society, or formal education. I had a very middle, lower-middle class sort of upbringing, but I identify with people who’ve had, at some point in their lives to struggle to survive. It adds another color to your character.”

10. “I won’t be happy until I’m famous like God”

11. “No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.”

12. “A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.”

13. “If your joy is derived from what society thinks of you, you’re always going to be disappointed.”

14. “I want to be like Gandhi and Martin Luther King and John Lennon but I want to STAY ALIVE.”

15. “I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.”

16. “I always wished that I could find someone as beautiful as you, but in the process I forgot that I was special too. ”

17. “Everyone is entitled to my opinion”

18. “I always thought I should be treated like a star.”

19. “Only love can last.”

20. “Don’t just stand there let’s get to it. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it.”

21. “When I’m hungry, I eat. When I’m thirsty, I drink. When I feel like saying something, I say it.”

22. “I am because we are. We all bleed the same color. We all want to love and be loved.”

23. “I’ve been popular and unpopular successful and unsuccessful loved and loathed and I know how meaningless it all is. Therefore I feel free to take whatever risks I want.”

24. “I went to New York. I had a dream. I wanted to be a big star. I didn’t know anybody. I wanted to dance. I wanted to sing. I wanted to do all those things. I wanted to make people happy. I wanted to be famous. I wanted everybody to love me. I wanted to be a star. I worked really hard and my dream came true.”

25. “I would like to see the Pope wearing my T-shirt.”

26.  “To me, the whole process of being a brush stroke in someone else’s painting is a little difficult”

27.  “Fame is a by-product. Fame is something that should happen because you do work that speaks to people and people want to know about your work. Unfortunately the personality of people has taken over from the work and the artistry and it’s this thing now that stands on its own. I don’t think one should ever aspire to being famous.”

28.  “My father was very strong. I don’t agree with a lot of the ways he brought me up. I don’t agree with a lot of his values, but he did have a lot of integrity, and if he told us not to do something, he didn’t do it either.”
