The original material girl has reached middle age. Madonna turns 55-years old on August 16, but as expected, the queen of pop is showing no signs of slowing down. In addition to directing films, working to provide schools in Africa, and raising her four children - the singer has kept her stronghold grip on the world of pop music, still topping charts and selling out venues around the world. In fact, her 2012 MDNA was the highest grossing tour of the year, selling more than 305 million dollars worth of tickets and attracting a worldwide audience of more than 2.2 million people. Known as the queen of reinvention, Madonna has been entertaining fans since 1983, when she debuted her first, self-titled album. She has since gone on to sell more than 300 million albums, earned a Golden Globe for Best Actress for "Evita," and has amassed a fortune that reportedly exceeds one billion dollars.
