Guess Which Celeb Posed Nude For Art Students To Pay Rent!
In the new issue of “Harper’s Bazaar” MADONNA says that she was raped at knifepoint when she was young and trying to make it in New York City. It happened 35 years ago, when she was 20. (Yes, that means she’s 55 now. And she has brought up this incident before.)
She says, quote, “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.”
That’s not all Madonna didn’t like about New York. She says, quote, “The tall buildings and the massive scale of New York took my breath away. I felt like I had plugged into another universe. ”But I was also scared [crap]less and freaked out by the smell of [urine] and vomit everywhere, especially in the entryway of my third-floor walk-up.”
Madonna paid the rent by posing nude for art students . . . but she says she made sure they didn’t just see her as an object . . . quote, “[I was] staring at people staring at me naked . . .”Daring them to think of me as anything but a form they were trying to capture with their pencils and charcoal . . . I was defiant.”
