4. Her own son called her a b***h in public
Is she taking a stand against censorship or just another painfully embarrassing mum?
The Queen of Pop has made a career out of pushing the boundaries of female sexuality and it seems her quest to stand out from the crowd started as a teenager. The never before seen pictures were taken by photographer Cecil I. Taylor 40 years ago when Madonna was just 18 years old, five years before her first record was released. In the black and white photos, Madonna poses in a black top and headscarf, but with no trousers or knickers on. Despite being bottomless, the teen grins confidently at the camera, while in another shot she opens her mouth and pulls a funny face while standing with her hands on her hips. Another set of pictures show the star - who originally started out as a dancer - completely naked while pulling a series of ballet poses. In one, she stands with her arms above her head while pointing her toe, and in another she holds onto the ballet bar as she stretches an arm and a leg out to the side of her. As she continues to move, another picture sees the naked teen with bent knees as she pushes her torso forward and arches her back, with nothing to protect her modesty. However in some other shots, she does wear a loose dress, but with the buttons open so her breasts are still exposed. The images are believed to have been taken while Madonna lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, before she made the big move to New York to become a star.

The previously unseen graphic images date back from her earliest shoot in , when she was still a student in Michigan, and can now be obtained by die-hard fans. Expected to cause a commotion after going up for sale today, the snaps form part of a wider lot which also include the 'LIke A Virgin' wedding dress and a lacy bra. Ed Kosinski, co-owner of Gotta Have Rock and Roll, said: "There are important Madonna items, including photographs from her first nude photo session at after turning years-old in Ann Arbour, Michigan. The nude photos stand out more than anything else in our Madonna section, it's the earliest known nude session before she was famous. Madonna had done a lot of nude photo sessions and there are others when she was in her 20s trying to make it in the business. He continued: "But this photoshoot was just when she had turned 18 and it was pretty remarkable for her to do this. I think she was driven her whole life but at 18 wanted to make it anyway she could, whether it be as a model or an artist. We have a great deal of Madonna items from handwritten letters to more. We also have a collection of 63 original contact sheets for Madonna's book Sex, from various shoots, we have a great deal of Madonna items.
