Madonna has all the brass of her Leo Sun
sign, but it's not just her boldness that keeps her in the spotlight. Madonna has carved a unique place for herself in show business history. Neither a great singer nor dancer, neither songwriter nor musician, she has become one of the most famous performers in the world. Born August 16, 1958 at 7:05 am in Bay City, Michigan, Madonna is a Leo who knows how to strut her stuff and command the spotlight. She's given herself license to show off, spout off and flout it to the max -- unmistakable Leo traits that are made for the stage. It's this innate sense of importance and need to be noticed that's made it possible for Madonna to become a pop music icon and a major figure in modern culture: a feminist in fishnets fighting for the right to be sexy for herself, rather than to satisfy men. In spite of the many producers, arrangers, managers, writers, and musicians who contributed to her success, not one has risen above anonymity to take an ounce of attention from the Material Girl's act.
