The Loch Ness Monster smiles for the camera -- sort of, Ellis Island closes, actor William Holden passes away, and Madonna releases "Like a Virgin," all on this day.
1984: Madonna releases the album "Like A Virgin." The singer's second album would become the first album by a female to be certified for 5 million sales, solidifying her status as a star. The album would eventually be certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America and sell more than 21 million copies worldwide.
