Madonna Celebrates 60th, Uploads Full MET Gala Performance

Happy birthday to US!

Despite the icon of the industry being utterly timeless, Madonna apparently does have a human age. The legend herself turned 60 this week, and what better way to celebrate everything Madonna than by FINALLY being able to watch her MET Gala performance from earlier this year.

"In celebration of my brithday," Madge wrote on Twitter, "and as a 'thank you' for all your donations on my Birthday Fundraiser, I wanted to share a very special performance from this year’s Met Gala".

The 13-minute video is a rare look inside the secretive MET Gala which, this year, was themed "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination". And who better to perform her interpretation of the Catholic Imagination than the Madonna herself.

The iconic performance features Madonna singing classics like a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", "Like A Prayer" and her new single "Beautiful Game".

For her birthday this year Madonna, has been fundraising for her Raising Malawi organisation that seeks to provide support to Malawian children in the form of uniforms, meals, healthcare and schools.

In 18 days the singer has already surpassed her birthday goal of $300,000 USD.

Truly something to celebrate. Happy birthday Madge!
