Elvis Presley Signing an Autograph for a 12-Year Old Madonna in 1970?

It's being discussed on internet, the picture below has surfaced on some Elvis fan sites and it's been taken in September 11, 1970 in front of the Olympia of Detroit. Many thinks this is the young Madonna in her home city. But we don't know...

According to Brian's Elvis Corner, Elvis Presley arrived in Detroit late Friday for his Olympia concert performance with all the mystery, intrigue and excitement of a top presidential visit. The aura around him, personified by his presence and created by his management, can knock you over.

Presley emerged from his limousine at 4:40 p.m. and moved toward the service entrance of the Detroit Hilton, where his troupe had rented 75 rooms. He was dark black hair, black outfit with blue shirt and that cool, cool, almost laughing, almost sullen look behind silver-rimmed blue shades.

About 40 spectators - mostly girls in their early 20s from the nearby Auto Club office - surged around him. First there were squeals, then pushing. Elvis' guards tried to clear the way. He stopped. Autographs.

Elvis didn't say anything to the girls. He didn't have to. A sleepy look, the half smile and a well-practiced lip twitch did the trick...

More photos from Elvis' show in Detroit on September 12, 1970:


  1. Great pictures.
    In my opinion, that doesn't look like a 12 year old Madonna.

  2. Nope. Just not Madonna's facial features. And the girl pictured is waaaaay older than 12..
