Life with My Sister Madonna

download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Christopher Ciccone Life with My Sister Madonna review º 3 Madonna up close by the brother who knows her better than anyoneChristopher Ciccone's extraordinary memoir is based on his forty seven years of growing up with working with and understanding the most famous woman of our time who has intrigued scandalized and entertained millions for half a centuryThrough most of the iconic star's kaleidoscopic career Christopher played an important role in her life as her backup dancer her personal assistant her dresser her decorator her art director her tour directorIf you think you know everything there is to know about Madonna you are wrong Only Christopher can tell the full I have never been a fan of Madonna It s just that practically my young adult life was bombarded by her music I was in college when she dished out Holiday and during our graduation partyI repeatedly heard her Borderline and at that time her MTV of Like a Virgin was played almost everyday in a music video channel on the telly I still remember her prancing dancing gyrating wearing a bridal gown riding an Italian gondola shrieking Like a virgin touch of the very first timelike a viirrrginwhen your heart beatsnext to mine This was followed by another MTV of her dressed ala Audrey Hepburn in Material Girl and I still remember that the first movie I watched in a rundown theatre along Avenida upon coming down from Baguio where I took my college was her movie Crazy for You and it was my sister s treat who started working a few months ahead of me So even if the movie was a love song even up to now whenever I hear it I remember my sister It becomes our unofficial theme song even if we did not have any incestuous relationship like Desdemona and Lefty in Jeffrey Eugenides s Middlesex Sorry I digressed It s just that My Life With My Sister Madonna is a memoir of Christopher Ciccione the younger brother of Madonna and this book is basically about him her and their relationship as siblings Especially since they were already estranged at the time of this book s writing his objective was to obviously to make money out of his sister s fame I am not criticizing him for doing this after all it is their lives all I m saying is that this saddened me as I also have an elder sister She may not be famous as Madonna but I will never ever write a book to defame her There are just things that have to be kept within ourselves within a family or within immediate relativesThis motive of making money for himself is not evident in the first part of the book Ciccione narrates the early part of his life with Madonna his first joint his first ecstasy pill his first visit to a gay bar He also recalls Madonna s performance in school donning a provocative costume that displeased their father Then he debunks the myth propagated by Madonna regarding her first trip to Manhattan with 27 in her pocket and a pair of ballet shoes So even if I enjoyed reminiscing about the times in my younger years when he mentioned the songs concerts or videos those revelations and debunking of myths somehow colored my enjoyment and made me think of Ciccione s motive Through his own recollection it seemed to me that Madonna has been trying to help him recover from being a drug addict and alcoholic by hiring him in various jobs eg dresser concert director house designer etc and yet Ciccione still has the nerve to get angry with his sister and write this treacherous book As I am not a Madonna s fan I will not comment on whether she is good or bad talented or not an artist worth emulating or not However we all cannot deny that Madonna is still a force to reckon with in the global music industry She has sold than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world s top selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records She is next to Barbra Steisand as the best selling female rock artist of the 20th century with 64 million certified albums In 2000 Time Magazine included Madonna as one of the 25 Most Powerful Women of the Past Century for being an influential figure in contemporary musicAnd with all those achievements Ciccione should accept the conseuences of being a brother of a world icon keep his mouth shut stop whining and listen to his sister Despite all the assistance that he has been getting from Madonna the gay single Ciccione is always broke and so he continuously waits for his big sister to lend him some alms Ciccione probably thought that Madonna is his goose that lays the golden egg and she is there for his killing I d say Grow up Christopher As I mentioned at the start of this review I also have an older sister who is 2 years my senior same as Madonna and Christopher but I could never imagine myself doing what Christopher has been doing to Madonna As they say you reap what you sow

download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Christopher Ciccone Life with My Sister Madonna review º 3 Dame Christopher witnessed and understood all of them as his own life was inexorably entwined with that of his chameleon sisterHe tangled with a cast of characters from artist Jean Michel Basuiat to Gwyneth Paltrow Kate Moss Demi Moore and of course Guy Ritchie whose advent in Madonna's life splintered the loving relationship Christopher once had with herThe mirror image of his legendary sister with his acid Ciccone tongue Christopher pulls no punches as he tells his astonishing storyLife with My Sister Madonna is the juicy can't put it down story you've always wanted to hear as told by Madonna's younger brothe 82809 Though many might disagree with me I found this memoir surprisingly well written or at least very engaging and I had trouble not reading it all in one sitting Whether you like Madonna or not her brother Christopher lays it all out I think you ll come away with an altered perspective after reading this Of course there are always two sides to a story and this one s bound to be biased but I can t help but lose a little respect for Madonna after reading this I ve always had mixed feelings about Madonna I ve respected her ability to become a success she seems a very organized structured individual and overall I like her music although I prefer the older stuff But as a person I ve always uestioned her morals wonder what she s really trying to achieve Her brother presents her as a selfish attention seeking person who cares little for the feelings of people around her and I have no doubt that s an accurate description for the most part Overall I ve lost respect for her after reading this I feel for Christopher and the way she s treated him but at the same time I think he should have stood up for himself a long time ago Essentially they ve both used each other through the years to get what they want but obviously Christopher has ended up with the shorter straw My hope is that Christopher Ciccone wrote this as a sincere therapeutic process as opposed to a money making endeavor
