The music business veteran also represents Stevie Nicks, Cher and Michael Buble.
Liz Rosenberg, a music industry veteran who is best known to the masses as Madonna's publicist, has announced her retirement. Rosenberg has been Madonna's publicist since 1983.
"She's been -- and still is -- the head of publicity for my entire career," Madonna said to the audience. "Now, does anybody understand the insanity of being my publicist for the last 25 years? Well, I think Liz was smoking a joint when I first met her. I walked into her office, and she very politely stubbed it out in the ashtray. I don't think she thought I knew she was smoking a joint, but it was a little bit obvious. Anyway, we hit it off right away. She was my kinda girl -- tough, irreverent and funny. And we've had a long and amazing chunk of time together." - Madonna

A never before seen picture of Madonna when she was a nobody who had just moved in to New York City has been released.Dance instructors talking about Madonna: "Round eyes, arched eyebrows, finely drawn mouth – Da Vinci would have loved it. It is a theatrical face, a dancer’s face. And she has a dancer’s body – thin as a blade, lithe and agile. Doll-like, she looks as if she’d snap in a strong wind."

Hung Up on the past! Madonna goes back to the '80s posting vintage snaps on Instagram... including one with Diana Ross
She is a pop superstar who recently released her thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart.
But it seems Madonna has been in a reflective mood for the past week, posting throwback photos from the beginning of her career in the 1980s on social media.
The latest one, posted by the 56-year-old on Monday, showed the hitmaker in a black and white snap with a group of friends that she captioned: 'Nile Rodgers, Diana Ross, Jellybean and me wearing a skirt Keith Haring. Painted for me! Doesn't get much better!! ❤️#rebelhearts.'
The pals were partying at Paradise Garage, a New York club and disco that operated from 1977 to 1987. Nile was the guitarist for Chic who went on to produce her second album, Like A Virgin, in 1984, while drummer and producer John 'Jellybean' Benitez, was Madonna's boyfriend at the time.
The fact that she was wearing a skirt painted for her by hip artist and social activist Keith Haring showed how linked into popular culture the starlet was even then. Keith died in 1990 of AIDS related complications aged 31.
And of course, she couldn't resist a shoutout to her new hit album, with the hashtag Rebel Hearts, which she used for her four throwback photos.
