Did Madonna just show Cuba how to party, or is it vice versa?
The legendary singer, whose daughter Lourdes is of Cuban decent, is celebrating her 58th birthday in Havana. So far this epic trip had included conga lines, dancing on tables, and partying with locals. In the videos, shared by CiberCuba, we see the "Living for Love Singer" with her children and entourage as they make their way through the island.
In typical Madonna fashion, her pre-birthday dinner wasn't quite traditional.
As the singer walked through the streets, she found herself surround by a large group of fans that shouted, "We love you, Madonna! Cuba loves you!" Once inside La Vitrola, a bar and restaurant in Old Havana, the star was welcomed by a large local band, and she couldn't hold back from dancing to their infectious beats. Madonna showed us that she's no stranger to the Cuban sound because her moves were on point.
Then we see Madonna make her way to the band, and things got really fun after that.
That's when singer, with a traditional abanico in hand, made her way to the outside of the bar in a conga line with locals and tourists that dined at the eatery. She sported a sheer top with a lacy bra peeking through, a black skirt with yellow flowers, and her signature black fedora.
The star posted a selfie this morning thanking her fans saying, "Thank you to.all my fans and everyone who is in my gang for all your birthday Wishes!!!! You know how to make a girl feel special!!"
The birthday girl also just covered Love magazine's 16.5 cover, showing the iconic star chillin' in a hoodie and sucking on her thumb.
"I don't consider myself a pop act, I consider myself an artist. And it's an artist's responsibility to be revolutionary in our work. It's our responsibility, our duty and our privilege," Madonna tells the magazine.
"I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn't the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media. Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist. Now it's easy to become famous. What isn't easy is to develop and grow as an artist without being distracted or consumed with fame."
Madonna also tells LOVE 16.5: "I like Instagram because it's like keeping a diary and every day I get to share different aspects of my personality, my life, and what inspires me, what infuriates me, or what causes I want to fight for. It allows me to be mysterious, ironic, provocative or proud. I get to use it as a platform to bring attention to people or issues that I think are important. It allows me to be the curator of my life."
