Embroiled in a headline-making divorce, Madonna is also currently traveling the world for her "Sweet and Sticky Tour," playing dozens of her award-winning tunes.

But, in a newly released tape posted on The Daily Beast, fans can get a glimpse of a much younger and wide-eyed pop queen.

Ed Gilroy made the tape with his brother Dan, Madonna's ex-boyfriend, who lived with the singer in Queens. It is interspersed with her acceptance speech from her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

"It is sweet and raw," Madonna biographer Andrew Morton says. "It signifies to me how far she has come, a reminder of the explosion of talent."
