(KPLR) – A shocking admission from singer Madonna.

The iconic singer says was held up at knifepoint and raped when she first arrived in New York City years ago.

In a revealing first-person essay in November’s Harper’s Bazaar, Madonna recalls the horrifying story of the night she was taken to a rooftop where she was raped.

She confesses, in the magazine’s “daring issue,” that those early days in New York City prompted her to push boundaries and be more daring.

The singer also says her apartment was broken into three times.
