HAVANA, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- American pop star Madonna celebrated her 58th birthday Tuesday with a stroll through the streets of Old Havana where she was noticed by the locals.

Locals took pictures of her with their phones and one group sang "happy birthday" in Spanish.

The singer is on a private visit to Cuba since Monday, together with a group of family and friends including her daughter Lourdes Leon from her first marriage to Cuban dancer Carlos Leon.

The popular singer began her birthday celebrations a few days ago in Africa, where she enjoyed different rituals.

Cuba has become a popular destination for world celebrities after Washington and Havana reestablished diplomatic relations last year.

Other celebrities like the Rolling Stones, Kanye West, the Kardashian sisters, Paris Hilton, Leonardo di Caprio, Beyonce and Rihanna have also visited the island nation.
