On August 16, 2018, Madonna turned 60 years old. The “Queen of Pop” celebrated by bringing her closest friends and family members on a five-day trip to Marrakesh, Morocco. Madonna’s exclusive circle included her six children, touring dancer Marvin Gofin, actress Debi Mazar (YoungerEntourage) and French photographer JR. The music icon took to Instagram to commemorate her special week with a series of photos and videos.

Madonna took an inspiring walk during the Call to Prayer early in her “magic adventure.” The gorgeous ritual song paired with the dark cobblestone streets make for an environment of spiritual camaraderie and peace, perfect for a 60th birthday.

The singer cemented her status as “Queen of Pop” in both English and Arabic “In case someone forgot!” Madonna is the best-selling female artist of all time according to the Guinness Book of World Records, how could anyone forget that she’s the queen?

Madonna stunned in a fuchsia Gucci dress, silver headdress and multiple accessories as she took a “Mystical Walk Thru the desert” with an entourage of horse riders.

Madonna set up a fundraiser to support her charity Raising Malawi, an organization that “supports orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi through health, education and community support.” As a thank you for all the donations Raising Malawi received for her birthday, Madonna shared her performance from this year’s Met Gala. Madonna has based many aspects of her aesthetic on Catholic imagery since the early years of her career. This year’s Met Gala theme,“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” was perfect for her.
