She came. She saw. She partied.

Madonna decided to take a trip to Cuba Monday to ring in her 58th year on the planet.

Havana will never be the same.

AP pictures show crowds gathering around the pop icon’s car in Old Havana.

TMZ reports the “Like A Virgin” singer (whose actual birthday was Tuesday) stopped by a bar called La Vitrola and even danced on top of the bar, according to a video posted on the gossip website.

Her no longer estranged son Rocco (with director Guy Ritchie) traveled with his famous mom. The 16 year old reportedly tried out some salsa moves.

Havana resident Taimi Estrada Joba says she thought it would be great if Madonna had a concert in Cuba one day, according to the AP. In her words, “We are very happy she came.”

Unlike Kim Kardashian, we didn’t hear Madonna complaining about any Internet issues.

She did tweet about the hot weather, though.

“Muy caliente,” she wrote.

Apparently the music legend is with pal, actress Debi Mazar, according to M’s Instagram — where you can see snaps of the trip.

 

Muy Caliente in Havana!

She’ll be back in our steamy neck of the woods come December for Art Basel.

It’s a charity event for Malawi, where her adopted daughter Mercy is from.
