August 16, 2013 is Madonna's 55th birthday. Just last week the iconic singer was spotted with her toyboy lover on her arm at a classical music festival in the south of France.
The singer looked just 30 with diamond grills fixed to her teeth leaving younger women asking how the 'Queen of Pop' was so fit and fab at 50 plus.
We are not answering that one, Madonna's songs and dance routines over the last few years gave an indication that she has no plans to slow down as she gives younger women a complex with her energy levels and dance style.
A singer-songwriter, actress, author, director, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Madonna's face and voice have entertained music lovers around the world for the last 35 plus years.
Having sold more than 300 million records worldwide, the singer has reinvented and defined music over the years. Madonna has been recognised as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness.
A cultural icon, Madonna is also a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Evita in 1996. The singer has faced criticism for her use of Christian imagery during her performances. Madonna is a firm follower of the Jewish mystic religion Kabbalah.
