Madonna celebrates 50th birthday

Queen of pop reaches a milestone

Madonna celebrates her 50th birthday today (August 16).

The singer is reportedly expected to hold a party at her home in Wiltshire later.

During her career Madonna has sold around 120 million albums and 40 million singles, according to Guinness World Records.

Earlier this year she scored her 13th Number One single in the UK singles chart with ‘4 Minutes’.

She has had more than 60 Top 10 UK singles and nine chart topping albums.

Her Number One hit ‘Like A Prayer’, which was released in 1989, has also topped a list of her ultimate tracks in a poll compiled by HMV, to celebrate her 50th birthday.
