Madonna complicates the victory lap during her Celebration tour.

The pop star flashed back 40 years to the early 1980s when she premiered her song “Burning Up” for a smaller and more hostile crowd at New York's renowned CBGB.

She remembered, “People were screaming at me, ‘Show us your tits!’” I wasn't eating, so I didn't have any tits.

She chuckled. Being broke, homeless, friendless, jobless, foodless, and anorexic was not a vibe.

Monday was the first of five Forum concerts on Madonna's Celebration Tour  

which she said will “tell you the story of my life” early in the two-hour-and-15-minute set.   

In the age of Taylor Swift's world-conquering Eras Tour, Madonna's extensive discography may appear primed for a retrospective.  

The 65-year-old singer has always preferred to showcase her latest work  

as shown in her tiny theater concerts in 2019 and 2020 in support of her most recent studio album, “Madame X”.  

So it seemed natural that she wanted to explain.“I hope you can handle it,” she assured followers, “’cause just imagine: I had to live it.”  

“You can all thank me for allowing you to have the courage to come out,” she said Monday, indicating her long career in allyship.
