Madonna thanks fans for birthday wishes

Madonna has thanked her fans for their birthday wishes.

The 'Like A Virgin' hitmaker - who turns 58 on Tuesday (16.08.16) - has praised her loyal supporters after she was showered with kind messages on social media to mark her big day.

Captioning a photograph of herself, she wrote: "Thank you to.all my fans and everyone who is in my gang for all your birthday Wishes!!!! You know how to make a girl feel special!! (sic)"

Social media has flooded with sweet messages for the 'Rebel Heart' singer.

One wrote: "Happy happy birthday Madonna!wish you all the best and more (sic)"

Whilst another added: "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! And many more!! You have always been a source of inspiration to me, thank you... @madonna (sic)"

Meanwhile, Madonna - who has Lourdes, 19, Rocco, 16, Mercy, 10, and David, 10 - previously revealed she thinks it is easy to become famous.

She said: "I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn't the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media.

"Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist. Now it's easy to become famous. What isn't easy is to develop and grow as an artist without being distracted or consumed with fame.

"I don't consider myself a pop act, I consider myself an artist. And it's an artist's responsibility to be revolutionary in our work. It's our responsibility, our duty and our privilege."
