Abstract:

MY MADONNA: MY INTIMATE FRIENDSHIP WITH THE BLUE EYED GIRL ON HER ARRIVAL IN NEW YORK, is an intimate memoir by Norris W. Burroughs. The memoir centers on the Material Girl herself. Mr. Burroughs had the distinct pleasure of dating the superstar just before her dizzying rise to fame. She was a bright-eyed nineteen-year-old dancer, a recent arrival to New York City, hungry for stardom but unsure of how she would get there. He was an aspiring rocker, spending his nights performing at CBGB, s and his days making t-shirts in the Garment District. There was something different about her, a yearning, a sense of forward propulsion. He knew he would not be able to hold on to her for long. It was Norris who initiated Madonna into his world of rock & roll, Norris who introduced her to her future band mates. Norris attempts to reconcile the young woman he knew and loved with the pop icon she has become. The book is a meditation on the slippery nature of fame, set against the backdrop of the grungy 80s music scene. Many books have been written on Madonna, but few have such an intimate, personal perspective and focus on this crucial time in her artistic development.
