Madonna got candid in a recent interview at Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show. The 'Rebel Heart' singer opened up about her big move from the Midwest to New York City and how the first year after moving in the city of dreams turned into a nightmare.
Long before Madonna made good music and sold millions of albums worldwide to become the Queen of Disco and Pop, the diva had her worst experience in first year living in the Big Apple as it was quite the difficult journey.
"First I was in shock, I didn't know a soul," she told Howard Stern when reliving her move to the East Coast. "I was saying 'hi' to people on the streets like a dork."
Her apartment kept getting robbed and she had no money to make a call. Madonna explained how her friendliness put her into this horrible situation.

"I was going to a dance class and the door was locked and I needed money for the payphone," she explained. "[A man] gave it to me... he was a very friendly guy. I trusted everybody."
"I was raped," she proclaimed. "The first year I lived in New York was crazy."
When Stern and co-host Robin Quivers asked if she ever went to the police and filed charges, Madonna explained that the process was too overwhelming.
"You've already been violated," she explained. "It's just not worth it. It's too much humiliation."
On the show, Madonna asked, "Well, have you ever been to Rochester, Michigan? and added, " I just didn't want to go back. I can't be around basic-thinking people."
Apart from her shocking rape incident, the 56-year-old diva also confirmed she dated Tupac Shakur after two decades of buzz! She admitted of her brief romance with rapper Tupac Shakur, who tragically died in 1996.

While talking about her bad behaviour on David Letterman's Show back in 1994, Madonna said on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, "I was mad at [David Letterman] when I said the F-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up about life in general."
Tupac was shot and killed on September 7 1996 in Las Vegas after a Mike Tyson boxing match.
