Sup Travellers?! If you know anything about Madonna you'd know that her life wasn't as easy as it should have been for an international pop diva. I'm not going to go into everything that happened to her but one of the things that she recently revealed to Harper's Bazaar is that she was raped on a rooftop at gunpoint when she first moved to New York. I don't know if that story was ever published but what I do know is that Madonna moved to New York City in 1977. So that story is probably stored away in some archive somewhere or was just never revealed.

Madonna, 55, didn't dwell on the heartaches too much as she moved her career forward but now she's opening up to Harper's Bazaar about the rape. In an article in Harper's Bazaar, Madonna recalls the difficult memory as she writes: "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."


The pop icon who graces the cover of the November issue of Harper's Bazaar opened up about a lot of other things as well in her interview. It's a really long interview but it generally talks about her 30 years of ruling pop and everything that led to that point, which included her being raped on a rooftop in New York City. After her divorce from Sean Penn, she says, "a real low point in my life" was adopting son David Banda in Malawi: "I didn't know that trying to adopt a child was going to land me in another sh-- storm." She endured all kinds of accusations, including kidnapping, child trafficking, bribery, and witchcraft. "One of the many things I learned from all of this: If you aren't willing to fight for what you believe in, then don't even enter the ring."

"If I can't be daring in my work or the way I live my life, then I don't really see the point of being on this planet," explains the singer, who has hinted that she could be releasing a new album in 2014.
