MadonnaHomelessBrother230.jpgLooks like Madonna is applying her "Like A Prayer" lyric "Everyone must stand alone" ... to her family.

Madonna's brother, Antony Ciccone, 55, has told The Michigan Messenger that he is homeless and living in Traverse City, Mich.

The interview took place "over a roast beef dinner served by volunteers at the Faith Reform Church on Front St.," with Ciccone telling the site:

    "My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time. You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times — why my sister is a multibazillionarie, and I’m homeless on the street?”

Ciccone says he now lives under a bridge after losing his job at his father's winery. He says the worst part of being homeless is the cold, and that last winter he got frostbite.

“Never say never,” he warns. “This could happen to anybody."

Are you listening, Madge (or should we say, Madonna Louise Ciccone?)
