Vintage Madonna Photos Published In Out Magazine

Britney Spears shares the April 2011 issue of Out Magazine with the original charttopping pop princess: Madonna.

Readers are taken on an odyssey back to 1984 as The Material Girl dons the cover in a vintage snap taken a year before the release of her self-titled 1983 debut album. Inside is a portfolio of photos of Madge from the same shoot with celebrity lensman Richard Corman.

“I looked up the staircase, and I saw this girl leaning over the edge of the banister, and even from three stories below I could see these catlike eyes just looking down,” Corman says of his first meeting with the woman the world would come to know for smash hits such as “Borderline,” “Holiday,” and “Vogue.” “I knew at that moment that she had something special — I really did.”

Take a look at the story and photos online. The slide show features several web exclusives…
