Over the week, the music world has been bowing down for Beyonce, after the superstar dropped an unannounced self-titled album on iTunes and watched it sell over 800,000 copies in just a few days.

But Queen B herself was the one who bent down last night during a concert in Brooklyn in order to drop a kiss on a very special guest:

Madonna's eight-year old daughter, Mercy James!

The adorable incident was caught on camera and posted to Instagram by the Material Girl herself, who included along with the photo a caption that reads: 

"Mercy James gets a big fat one from the Queen. B! Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad ass show! Girls run the world!"

Madonna and Brahim Zaibat have broken up after three years together, according to the singer's rep, who confirms that the longtime pair has parted ways.

Madonna’s rep declined to comment on why the pair broke up. The glocal music legend and Zaibat, a 25-year-old dancer, began dating in 2010.

Earlier this year, Madonna said she and Brahim Zaibat were a normal couple like any other, despite their age difference and her worldwide fame.

Prior to dating Brahim, she was linked to another much younger man in Jesus Luz. Before that, the Material Girl, 55, was married to Guy Ritchie.

She has four children, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon (with Carlos Leon), Rocco Ritchie (with Guy), David Banda Mwale and Mercy James (adopted).

We wish both parties the best after this unfortunate breakup.

Lady Gaga is, or at least was, more than happy to ruffle Madonna's feathers over her hit song "Born This Way," she reveals in an interview with Attitude.

"I have to be really honest, I was completely kind of floored that Madonna was singing my song on her stage every night!" Mother Monster recalled.

"I'm not thinking about anybody but me and my fans when I'm on stage."

Madonna took to performing a mashup of "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" (her old hit) during live concerts last year, as a means of making a point.

The songs  share a similar beat and melody, but Gaga says "the fact that I was on her mind at all ... I mean, Madonna's ... she’s Madonna. I looked up to her for a long time."

In late 1977, a University of Michigan dance student named Madonna Louise Ciccone posed nude at $10 an hour for photographer Herman Kulkens.

Less than 10 years later, she was a household name.

Check out the dark haired teenager with the flinty eyes, clad in nothing but a man’s striped shirt and tie and chewing seductively on a pair of glasses:

The steely expression she honed en route to becoming one of the world’s biggest star, amassing an fortune of up to $500 million, is already present.

This is the least revealing of a number of images set to be auctioned from her younger days. In others, Madonna, now 55, is nude as the day is long.

Madonna's life has been an open book for so long that few things surprise us, but one striking admission in the new Harper's Bazaar is an exception:

Shortly after arriving in New York City as a scrappy unknown from Rochester, Mich., in 1978, with dreams of stardom, the singer was a victim of rape.

"New York wasn't everything I thought it would be," she recalls.

"It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back."

Madonna also says that she "had my apartment broken into three times. I don't know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time."

The future icon dropped out of the University of Michigan, where she had a dance scholarship, to move to the Big Apple. She describes that experience:

Madonna is making news for yet another photo involving her with a gun, not even 48 hours after the deadly Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C.

While the singer is known for constantly pushing boundaries of decency, she's receiving tons of backlash for her latest stunt promoting her short film.

The upcoming endeavor, which has been dubbed SecretProjectRevolution, is said to be released next week in its entirety. Check out the photo in question:

The scene shows Madonna pointing a gun at the floor, with bodies strewn around a living room, including one man who appears to be on top of a piano.

Madonna is seen in a pair of fishnet tights, a black leotard and wearing a black leather glove as she clutches the revolver tightly. What is this for, exactly?

Madonna came out on top over a list that includes directors, authors and music producers. Here's a rundown of the Top 10 famous earners of the aforementioned 12-month period:

So Madonna is apparently rocking a grill these days.

Like the moment your mother and father joined Facebook, this makes one wonder if grills are officially no longer the hot, new "in" thing about celebrities.

Madonna Grill

Age is just a number. Even if that number is 54.

Always fashionable and forever young, Her Madgesty channeled her inner Lil Wayne and got her mouth blinged out in a shiny gold grill over the weekend.

We're not saying you can't pull off a certain look if you're a certain age ... but these images aren't making a compelling argument for the style. Just saying.

At least it's not Rihanna's gun grill?

Of all the Billboard Music Awards fashion hits and misses, Madonna's was definitely tops in one of the two categories, depending on your point of view.

The Material Girl, 54, hit the stage in a pair of shades, fishnets, black underwear and apparently no pants as she accepted Top Touring Artist honors.

Guess when you end 2012 with the top-grossing tour - earning $305 million no less - and you don't want to wear pants, no one's gonna call you out.

Madonna took the MGM Las Vegas stage with will.i.am. Take a look:
