That ambition - and a good bit of innocence - is seen in a collection of photos, art and drawings that will be auctioned Feb. 9 in
The collection is owned by the parents of Martin Burgoyne, an artist and Madonna's best friend of that era.
Burgoyne and Madonna befriended each other before she became famous. They were roommates, and he played a huge role in Madonna's early career, managing her first tour.
Burgoyne contracted aids and died in 1986. He was 23.
