Skip to comments.Madonna: I was raped at knifepoint - held up at gunpoint, raped on a rooftop
Posted on 04/02/2014 4:03:07 PM PDT by tom h
Madonna has detailed how she was raped not long after she moved to New York City at the age of 19, in a revealing account of her life to date.
In an article for Harper's Bazaar magazine, the singer said she was forced on to the roof of a building at knifepoint and attacked. The first-person account, which accompanied a fashion shoot, spans Madonna's life from growing up in the US midwest and moving away from home, to her marriages and children.
"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," she wrote.

I wonder if it is even true.
Thank you for ruining music.
I have Madonna fatigue. I honestly don’t give a blank about anything she has to say.
Wow, and she didn’t even go to Harvard.
Dear Ms. Ciccone: Not only is your gov't not all that into you, NYC doesn't give a kr@p about anybody.
My buddy went to hs with her in Motown (Rochester).
Her first claim to fame was a very racy dance number in the school talent show.
Is there a famous woman anywhere in the United States, black or white, that wasn’t raped by a stranger or family member ay sometime in her life??? Or abused in anyway by a family member or stranger?
They wait until they are almost out of the spotlight and confess that such a horrible thing happened to them years ago.
This is not a laughing matter, but a fatigue can develop when every famous woman claims this.
She was quite the dish when she was very young.....
She attended the “Harvard of the Midwest” UofM
i wonder too, but i don’ t really care.
Timeline-wise, it was very early in her career, if true.
However, I am tending to think she is pulling an Oprah to generate some publicity for some new project in the mid-twilight of her career.
Truth is relevant, but her revealing stage attire and photo shoots do not in any way excuse rape (and I suspect she is telling the truth and that this was before she dressed like that in public and before anyone recognized her). My disappointment is that she didn’t use her foul mouth and good figure as a distraction and her athleticism for leverage. Rapist plus rooftop plus gravity equals solution that would protect other women.
> She was quite the dish when she was very young.....
I don’t know... The hairy armpits never did anything for me...lol
this is the women, that drove around Manhattan, picking men off the streets for sex, one after another.....
Let’s see the police report....
Here’s the suspect she identified.
A lot of women and MEN refuse to admit if they’ve been raped. The stigma.
She was raped by a table leg
Most famous women are pretty and most pretty girls I’ve met were sexually assaulted in some way. Most often as children and the crime is typically covered up by family
For some reason, detailing a troubled and abusive childhood is in vogue now with entertainers.
Lady Gaga talked all about she was bullied in school and how she was thrown in a garbage can when her classmates say she was actually a rather popular girl.
I read about this years ago, so I doubt it’s for publicity.
Because if she wore that stuff, she deserved it? Are you posting from Pakistan?
Guy would have to hate his junk to want to do this hag.
And then she jumped into bed with every single industry connected jewish fella she could find until some poor bastard agreed to make her a star, regardless of her lack of talent. Yadda yadda yadda.
Rosanna was seriously hot too.
If she was raped as a teen, that could explain many of her bizarre actions in future years. Apparently, some women who are raped, never get over it and act out by becoming sluttish. The psychology being that they feel worthless because they were raped, so they act like they are worthless, choosing to be a ‘piece of meat’, to be a sex object (note the belt she is wearing in your photo). If this is the case, I feel sorry for her and she definitely needs help. If it is to get attention, to boost a sagging career, her comments are pathetic.
“I wonder if it is even true.”
Or just a bunch of attention seeking blathering?
I wonder if Lady Gaga or Mylie Cyrus will soon come out with statements that they, too have been raped, and are being raped at the same time they are tweeting that they are being raped as part of their next music videos.
No, Brazil, where 66% of all citizens, including women, said in a recent poll that if a women dresses like a slut she is partly responsible for being raped, if it happens.
Now, that wasn't my point but I was surprised by the candor of even the ladies of Brazil. But a 20-something gal like Madonna making a gazillion dollars by putting out the industry's first racy CD ("Like a Virgin") and doing drugs with cool and fast guys each night, is no doubt likely to find that one of them has violent tendencies and, after an hour of snorting coke with her in her apartment or at a party, decides to take liberties.
I won't believe for a minute that Madonna was innocently knitting and reading her Bible, with a glass of warm milk at her side, when the dude pulled out the knife and forced her to the roof. Context, my friend, context.
Perhaps we need to hear from Whoopi Goldberg who is an expert on this sort of thing and no doubt will given she has a daily chat show platform.
I thought being raped or mugged was New York’s way of saying “welcome”.
Bill Clinton is a rapist, but that doesn’t stop the accolades and swooning over him.
Only way anyone could rape Madonna would have to be faster at pulling off their pants.
It might explain some of her behaviour.
...most pretty girls Ive met were sexually assaulted in some way. Most often as children and the crime is typically covered up by family
You must live in a really depraved town. That is just absurd.
...and you’re still blaming the victim.
U of Michigan is a liberal cesspool
