We still cannot believe this news is real.
But believe it or not, his legacy could have been even greater at one point, because according to Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, the singers once toyed with the idea of touring together!
Apparently, Guy was a huge Prince fan and honored the star with a heartfelt Instagram post after his death where he recalled once suggesting a "Royalty Tour" to the pair.
As it turns out, Queen Madge was totally interested… but it was Prince who turned the project down because it would be "too big" for people to deal with:
Madonna is doing her very best to win Rocco Ritchie over!
According to sources, Madonna has been spending A LOT of time in London with Rocco over these past few weeks now that her grueling Rebel Heart tour has come to a close. The bonding couldn't come at a better time considering a judge recently urged the singer and her ex Guy Ritchie to reach an amicable conclusion over their custody dispute.
While the teen and Madge initially butted heads over her alleged strict parenting, they've recently grown closer thanks to a series of entertaining and teen-friendly day trips around London town. It appears the icon is taking her son's feelings into deeper consideration as well as loosening the reigns a bit.
Per an insider, over the course of this month the beauty and her boy took in a screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill as well as dinner at the exclusive Chiltern Firehouse. The Like A Prayer singer also allowed Rocco to invite some friends over to her London pad.
Just this past Monday, the duo took in the Strange and Familiar photography exhibit at the Barbican arts centre.
Aw… sounds like a blast!
Check out a pic of the pair enjoying their time together (below)!
Madonna Resolves NYC Parking Drama By Removing Fake Signage In Front Of Her Upper East Side Townhouse
One legal battle down…
Remember when we told you Madonna was facing some trouble with New York's Department of Transportation after she placed FAKE "Tenant Parking Only" signs in front of her $40 million Upper East Side townhouse? And wrote "No Parking" in the cement, AND painted the curb yellow to keep people away?
Well now it seems as though the 57-year-old pop star has decided not to put up a fight!
To be fair, Madge didn't really have a case here… but celebs have magical powers, right?!
Anyway, TMZ reports that the Like A Prayer singer had 30 days to resolve the issue and she did just that — with two days to spare! The outlet swung by the property and took notice to the fresh grey curb and missing "no parking" signage.
We guess that $250 fine really scared the diva!
LOL, yeah right.
We guess she has a few other fish to fry at the moment…

We can't wait to see this!
Salim Gauwloos — better known as Slam — was one of the dancers on Madonna's Blond Ambition world tour back in 1991, and he even infamously danced in her iconic video for Vogue and starred in her Truth Or Dare documentary that year.
But he saved the juiciest part of the story for 2016!
The dancer, now 25 years removed from his iconic work with the Queen of Pop, is taking part in a brand new documentary called Strike A Pose that is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in it, he's ready to discuss his time with Madonna, his experiences as a backup dancer, and — surprisingly — how he went through that entire tour while HIV positive!
As we would later learn, Slam was one of three dancers on Madonna's tour — the other two being Carlton Wilborn and Gabriel Trupin — who was living with HIV during the 1991 tour and documentary shoot.
