Madonna has been vacationing with friends and family in the south of France as she gears up for her 56th birthday on Aug. 16. And judging from her Instagram snapshots, she's been doing it up in style.
The singer has been posting a bevy of photos, from luscious macarons and baguettes – both staples of any French vacation – to a pool full of luscious men, a staple in any Madge oeuvre.
In between all the swimming and noshing, Madonna apparently also made time to party with Bono and David Blaine, posting a pic of the three of them along with the caption "Stuck between 2 magicians!"
And let's not forget the most crucial aspect of any birthday celebration: the gifts! On Saturday, the pop star posted a photo of gold-embellished Versace kicks, writing: "My first B-day present! Yaaaasssssssssss b----!!"
