Today is Madonna’s 60th birthday and her fellow celebs have been sending her best wishes across social media. Here’s just a selection:
Quite often considered to be Madonna’s nemesis, Madge put paid to that rumour by wearing a Kylie Minogue t-shirt as she performed at the MTV Awards in 2000. Kylie has always said how she’d dance around her bedroom to Madonna and Prince in her younger years. The closest these two have got to working together is Kylie recording a version of a Madonna penned track Alone Again that featured in part in Kylie’s documentary White Diamond.
Happy birthday to Lady @Madonna!!! I’m 14 years old, dancing and singing in my bedroom and she was just WOW!!! What a force and an inspiration. Enjoy your day Madonna!!! 🎈🎤🍰

Female popstar of the moment, Dua Lipa, pays respect to Madonna as a fellow Leo. She is clearly a big fan and paid tribute to the aforementioned conical bra look when she donned a similar outfit for a performance of New Rules on Jools Holland’s Later.
