The Queen of Pop is celebrating her big 5-5, though it has felt like an eternity with her imprint on the day’s culture.
Since breaking onto the music scene in the 80s, Madonna has given us a plethora of pop hits and, of course, plenty of controversy. Whether she’s flashing concertgoers or burning crosses, Madge always has a knack of landing herself on front page news. (Okay fine, news in general.)
Given she’s turning another year old this Friday, we have no doubt there’ll be more scandals coming our way.
Here’s to you, Madonna. Go get ’em, girl.
Launch the gallery above for her most scandalous moments – so far.
