Madonna celebrated her 58th birthday Tuesday in
Havana, dancing to Cuban beats during a night on
the town and drawing crowds as she toured the
city.

The Material Girl’s visit got a write-up in the


Cuban Communist party’s official newspaper,


Granma, which reported that she “toured different


city squares to start the first day of her visit, which


will last until Wednesday.”


It said the US pop superstar was in Cuba with her


eldest daughter, Lourdes, a 19-year-old model


whose father is Cuban dancer and fitness trainer


Carlos Leon.


American photographer Steven Klein and stylists B.


Akerlund and Andy Lecompte are traveling with


them, it said.

Madonna posted a picture of herself to her Twitter
account with the caption “Cuba Libre.” It shows her
wearing a revealing black dress with yellow flowers
and smiling as she tips a black hat.
Videos posted online by fans show her dressed in
the same outfit strolling through the streets of Old
Havana and dancing to Cuban beats at a restaurant
in the historic city center as onlookers cheer.
The news site Cubadebate said Madonna was
planning a “big party” Tuesday with the “rhythms
and flavors” of Cuba.
Madonna is the latest in a string of US celebrities
to visit Cuba since its historic rapprochement with
long-time enemy the United States was announced
in December 2014.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Katy Perry,
Kanye West, Usher, Paris Hilton, and Kim, Khloe
and Kourtney Kardashian have all toured the
Caribbean island recently.
US citizens are still officially banned from traveling
to Cuba as tourists under the embargo Washington
has maintained on Havana since the 1960s.
But President Barack Obama’s administration has
loosened travel restrictions, enabling more
Americans to make the trip under permitted
categories such as “cultural exchanges.”
