Madonna

Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone splashed onto the music scene with an attitude and some catchy pop tunes in the early 1980s. Her "Like a Virgin" album and subsequent tour took the world by storm, and she's never looked back. But the early years in New York City were tough for Madonna, and she found herself working at a number of low-paying jobs, including a stint at a Dunkin' Donuts in Times Square. But, in true Madonna fashion, she was fired for squirting jelly filling all over customers!
