Madonna & Basquiat

Rated TVMA • 21 minutes

Before she was famous, Madonna had a short but passionate and influential relationship with Jean-Michel Basquiat, a pioneer and darling of the American art scene. After a riotous night at the Roxy, Madonna and Basquiat head home on the subway. Following this short but impactful journey, neither of them are the same again. This story marks a poignant moment from the year in which Basquiat painted the most expensive American painting ever sold and Madonna broke through into stardom.
