Madonna has been teasing fans all week in the lead up to her birthday. The singer posted a photo on Instagram every day of the week with a countdown to the big day, and yesterday she shared several snaps from her 60th, where she was holidaying in Morocco’s Marrakesh with her adopted twins, Estere and Stelle.
The former Bazaar cover star shared a photo on social media holding a placared that reads “The queen. In case someone forgot.” in both Arabic and English - a nod to her Queen of Pop nickname. She also shared photos of her wearing traditional Moroccan Berber tribal jewellery writing, “Berber Queen”.
Madonna’s Instastories depict her and her children exploring the Medinas and dressing up in traditionalwear.
Brands, fans and celebrity friends of the popstar, including Kylie Minogue, Moschino’s Jeremy Scott and Riccardo Tisci, have all taken to social media to share their birthday tributes.
