”To say the world would never be the same is an understatement”
If five years seem to fly, what about 30?
Five years ago today Madonna‘s publicist Liz Rosenberg released a brief comment to Madonna’s official website, www.madonna.com, to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen Of Pop’s first single ever, Everybody.
Here’s what she had to say about:
“It may seem like only yesterday but 25 years ago on , Sire Records honcho Seymour Stein released a single called “Everybody” on Warner Bros. Records by an unknown singer from Rochester, Michigan by the name of Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone.
To say the world would never be the same is an understatement.
The song went on to become a huge dancefloor hit and was heard all over the radio in the Summer of 1982. That little girl from Michigan would go on to become one of the most famous entertainers and cultural icons in history – selling close to 200 million records and remaining a star of enormous magnitude and influence for the next 25 years.
She’s just getting started. Long Live the Queen and Happy Anniversary to Madonna.
And of course, it is 30 years today.
