Around the same time, Madonna uploaded a reel of the celebration, revealing events that led up to the dinner, from her plane flight to arriving at the venue and surrounded by family.

The clip showed her saying happy birthday to herself and later displayed the delighted "Sicilian clan" singing for the celebrants while showing an amusing part of Rocco licking the celebratory cake. Speaking of the 64-year-old's birthday, it was reported that she had been planning it for "weeks" and was "flying friends and family" to an 18th-century island where they would enjoy dinner.

A source revealed that "all of her family" would transport with her to the venue while the plan was to have dinner and drinks outside beneath the Mediterranean sky with a live band. Madonna has indeed been anticipating her big day as she posted several updates on social media earlier, including one where she urged fans to send her presents.

Her excitement seems to have been warranted as her birthday and the release of her project, "Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones," on Friday, August 19, are merely a few days apart.

There have been speculations about Madonna collaborating with the "Princess of Pop" Britney Spears, which a fan may have confirmed via Twitter by finding a possible partnership in the ASCAP database. The Blast shared that the ASCAP database, an acronym for the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, listed the singing pair on a "3" remix alongside a group of other musicians.

At the same time, it was reported that Spears has a duet with the legendary Elton John, which Universal Music Publishing will distribute. The company was also listed as one of the publishers of her collaboration with Madonna. While no date was attached to the entry, fans still had high hopes about Spears returning to making music.

Many voiced their wishes regarding the comeback, with one fan wanting to know if Spears would create a singles collection album featuring remixes. Another fan stated that an album of remixes was a great idea, adding, "Maybe a duets album with a touch of revenge for good measure." 

All the same, it may be possible that the collaboration may no longer be in motion. Still, since Spears appeared pretty friendly to Madonna at her wedding, there is the possibility of an upcoming feature in store.
