Madonna was the one who said, “I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, OK.” Judging by that quote, you can tell she’s not one to rely on a man for happiness. The Queen of Pop has an interesting romantic history, as appropriate for the Diva she is. It all started with her highly-publicized marriage to actor Sean Penn, between the years 1985-1989.
Her second marriage to acclaimed film director Guy Ritchie, between 2000-2008, was perhaps even more publicized than her first one! However, it seems as if Madonna’s personality was too much for Ritchie to handle, and on her side, accordingly, Ritchie wasn’t challenging enough for the vibrant singer and performer. Commenting on the failed marriage, Madonna said that Ritchie was “becoming dull,” while Ritchie felt as if she was putting her career first, and more importantly, that at fifty, she should dress and act her age. To be honest, we can’t blame her for ending the marriage – being with someone who accepts you for who you are is the key for a good relationship.
