It’s hard to imagine that one of my favorite musician’s is a 55 year old mother when she still wears dominatrix gear and exposed-legged (and butt) outfits. But the truth is, it all seems to work for Madonna.

She truly is the “material girl,” with her clothing line and music empire always transitioning to fit the current mold, with her own appeal. Madonna is stylish, sophisticated and (always) rebellious.

A day like today might force her to define her age by a number but you’ll never be able to tell a woman like Madonna how old to feel and it shows.

And not just in the age of the guys she’s been seen dating…

Always inspiring. Happy birthday Madonna!
