Madonna Celebrates Michael Jackson’s 58th Birthday

The Queen of Pop is missing her King. Madonna took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late friend and fellow superstar Michael Jackson on Monday, August 29, what would have been his 58th birthday.

Her Madgesty, who herself just turned 58 two weeks ago, posted four feels-inducing throwback pics of the pair from the ’80s and ’90s, including a snap from their iconic red carpet appearance at the 1991 Academy Awards.

'Happy Birthday to this wonderful and glorious creature!!' the 'Vogue' singer captioned the collage. '👑 The King! Gone too soon! ❤️ ❣❤️❣❤️❣❤️❣❤️❣❤️❣.'

Jackson tragically passed away in June 2009. That same year, Madonna honored her pal and his chart-topping career during a heartrending speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

'In a desperate attempt to hold on to his memory, I went on the internet to watch old clips of him dancing and singing on TV and on stage, and I thought, ‘My God, he was so unique, so original, so rare. And there will never be anyone like him again.’ He was a king,' she told the star-studded audience in 2009. 'But he was also a human being, and, alas, we are all human beings, and sometimes we have to lose things before we can truly appreciate them.'

During an October 2009 interview with Rolling Stone, the Material Girl revealed that while she and Jackson made a failed attempt to work together, they ended up spending the entirety of their friendship having fun. 'So that’s what we were doing: watching movies, having dinner, hanging out, going to the Oscars, being silly, seeing if we could work,' she told the magazine. 'He got relaxed. He took off his sunglasses, had a glass of wine, I got him to laugh.'

Michael Joseph Jackson will always live in my Rebel Heart!
Always knows the musical fire he did start!
With his music and his moves
Michael showed is is own groove
He had is brothers tried and true
Talent beyond normal me and you
Michael shown through at every gig
The brothers set up Michael, and big!
He lived the good life, and then tragedy
I was plucked from us too soon
Then Bowie, then Prince
We all mourn for all of you.
Thanks to Madonna for carrying the flame
She's also an inspiration for the world
Will never be the same.

RIP MJJ
Thanks to MLVC
