Madonna turns 58 today (in mortal years), and the truest queen of pop could not be any more immune to the ravages of time, both physically and spiritually.

She remains tireless--both of the moment, while existing in the past and present, simultaneously.

While it's almost impossible to nail down the most perfect Madonna moment (she has so many), here is a close contender: when Madonna met Kevin Costner backstage; a clip featured in the 1991 documentary Truth or Dare.

The mouth spray, though!

Costner disclosed in 2007 that for years after, he was hurt by the quick little "gag," but that Madonna, the regal empress that she is, apologized to him when he and his daughters were attending one of her concerts in the early 2000s.

"Anybody who says my show is 'neat' has to go," are truly words to live by.

Happy birthday, Madge.
