In an interview with?Howard Stern on his show yesterday (March 11), Madonna opened up getting raped at the age of 19 when she first moved to New York City.
?I was going to a dance class and the door was locked and I needed money for the telephone, the pay phone,? the ?Living For Love? singer told Howard Stern. ?[This man] gave it to me. He was a very friendly guy. He said, ?Well I just live right across the street, do you want to make a phone call from my house’?
The guy took the Madonna, a young ingenue to his house and raped her at knife point.
The host then asked Madge whether she reported the case. She replied that she didn?t because it was ?humiliating?.
?I was told that if I wanted to press charges, [I?d have to do a] physical examination, I have to go before the court, they are going to ask you all these personal questions. You?ve already been violated?So then do you want to talk about it? Do you want to make it public? No, it?s just not worth it. It?s too humiliating,? said the 56-year-old entertainer.
