Part of the reason Madonna keeps in such good shape is that she’s afraid of getting fat, she reveals in the February issue of Elle, on stands Thursday. (Check out photos here.) “I wish I were comfortable enough to look zaftig,” she told the mag, “but I choose men who like carved-out women, the can-you-run-for-the-bus kind of guy. I’m naturally inclined toward men like that.” The singer traces her desire to win men over back to her relationship with her father, who she said doesn’t get excited about much of anything. “A good part of my life was spent trying to wow him, to get his approval,” she said. Even so, she doesn’t think her fame will help any man in her life, especially the big guy upstairs. “In the big picture, it means very little,” Madonna said. “At the end of my life, God doesn’t give a sh–.”

… The music doesn’t sound like a 47-year-old woman. We think she’ll be making records that sound fresh and exciting when she’s in her nineties – good on her.
We also think Madonna has gone beyond that level. Age doesn’t really necessarily matter any more.
She’s a figure like Edith Piaf or Eartha Kitt who will be seen as a grand singer and an icon for the rest of her life.

from DrownedMadonna : NRJ has just announced that Madonna will perform at the NRJ Music Awards that will take place at Cannes on January 21st. It will be announced on radio Saturday. Madonna will arrive in Paris on the 20th and will go to Cannes on the 21st for the rehearsals at 1.00PM. She will probably open the show at 9.00 PM, performing her new hit, “Sorry”.
Madonna is rumoured to be opening the show, which will also feature Coldplay live. And Take That, who set out on a sell-out reunion tour this spring, are in line to present a gong.
The organisers are also in secret talks to tempt reclusive singer Kate Bush back onstage in what would be her first live gig since she played Hammersmith Apollo in 1979. Kate – who released an acclaimed album, Aerial, last year – is said to be “very keen” on the idea.
With or without Kate, ITV1 is so sure that this year’s event will blow the roof off that it has added half an hour to the usual two hour slot when the whole shebang is broadcast on February 16.
Nominees for the prestigious gongs are being announced next Monday – and we hear that Peter Andre and Jordan will be pitching up, hoping to secure a joint record deal.
