Madonna in 'Desperately Seeking Susan' (1985)

When: May 9, 1985
What: Returned to the cover of Rolling Stone to promote her new film Desperately Seeking Susan with costar Rosanna Arquette. Madonna's first foray onto the big screen was pretty smooth: the film about a suburban housewife who gets mixed up in the seamy New York underworld earned a Golden Globe nomination, and Madonna's "Into the Groove" appeared on the movie's soundtrack. " 'Into the Groove' is another song I feel retarded singing," she admits to RS now, "but everybody seems to like it."
