Madonna celebrates 62nd birthday in Jamaica

Madonna continued to celebrate her birthday this week as she threw a party on holiday in Jamaica.

The singer, who turned 62 on 16 August, took a trip to the Caribbean island with five of her six children.

On Tuesday (18 August), Madonna gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her second night of celebration as she shared a three-minute-long video to her Instagram, captioned: “The Birthday Party Continues in Jamaica.”

Wearing a pink flower crown and white dress, Madonna is seen joking around with her friends and family, including her seven-year-old twin daughters Stella and Estere, who at one point keep fan her to keep her cool.

Other shots show Madonna dancing in a circle with her friends, including music producer Diplo, as well as fire dancers performing.

Her other children Lourdes Leon, 23, and David Banda and Mercy James, both 14, were both in attendance. Only Rocco, her 20-year-old son with actor Guy Ritchie, was not present.

Thanking her children for attending in another post, the “La Isla Bonita” singer posted: “Thankful for my Children on my Birthday and Every day – they are full of [heart emoji], creativity, intelligence and [fire emoji].”

Earlier in the week, Madonna had marked her arrival in Jamaica by sharing a picture as she sat with a plate of cannabis and a joint in her mouth.

The singer’s social media account was last month censored after she shared an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory about a fake cure for coronavirus.
