Happy Birthday, Madonna! The Material Girl is turning 61 today, Thursday, August 16, and is blowing our freaking minds with her youthful energy.
Since she first burst onto the scene with her eponymous solo album in 1982, the multi-hyphenate singer, actress, director, humanitarian and beauty mogul has become a cultural icon. She’s also proven to be a pioneer in the music industry and beyond thanks to her boundary-defying performances, non-conformist fashion and unapologetic creativity that inspired fans around the globe to be true to themselves.
