Picture Trivia
          The two anagrams of Madonna’s full name, “Madonna Louise Ciccone” are (1) “Occasional nude income” and (2) “One cool dance musician.”
          Do you know the title of Madonna’s first Number 1 single in the Billboard Hot 100? It’s “Like a Virgin” (by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly). In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Steinberg said the song was not written for Madonna, not even for a female singer. The song was inspired by Steinberg’s personal romance experience. But when Madonna heard the demo recording, she liked the contents of the song that is full of “hidden sexual innuendos.”
