Wheather you think she’s butch or beautiful, there is no doubt that, at 47, Madonna’s figure is impressive.
And the queen of pop admitted last week that part of the reason she works hard to keep herself slim and sexy is to please her man.
“I wish I were comfortable enough to look zaftig [pleasingly plump],” she said.
“But I choose men who like carved-out women, the can-you-run-for-the-bus? kind of guy.”
But the good news is we can all reap the health benefits of Madonna’s lifestyle without five hours of yoga and dance classes every day.
So how does she maintain a body most 20-somethings would die for? We asked Sofia Boutella, the 23-year-old Algerian-born backing dancer on Madonna’s recent tour, to reveal the age-defying 47-year-old’s secrets of staying in shape.

Guy Ritchie has quashed rumours his marriage to Madonna is in trouble.
Speculation has been rife in recent weeks the pair’s relationship is on the rocks because the director is furious his sexy wife has been spending hours with music producer, Stuart Price.
The rumours intensified last week after Guy failed to accompany Madonna to the Grammy awards, where she was performing a collaboration with animated band Gorillaz.
The ‘Snatch’ filmmaker has spoken out about his no-show at the prestigious ceremony claiming he didn’t go because he had to look after the couple’s children, Rocco and Lourdes – Madonna’s daughter by Carlos Leon.
He told Britain’s Radio 1: “I’ve got to look after the kids. She wasn’t winning anything but I know it was important for her to go.”
Madonna, 47, has also played split rumours this week – insisting the couple speak to each other five minutes when they are apart.
She told US chat show host Ellen Degeneres: “He still calls me every five minutes. We both work so it’s difficult with our schedules. The longest we’ve been apart is two weeks, and that was five years ago.”

“I’ve heard it all before… I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know… I can’t take it any more,” states Madge, aloof, matter-of-fact. She’s having a mare (as the sleeve photo would suggest). But with whom? Tabloids, as is their way, are awash with rumour and supposed hearsay about our heroine’s marriage. Could the lyrics of Sorry refer to matters particularly close to home, or are they simply well-structured invention?
Whatever, for as with Confessions On A Dancefloor’s lead single Hung Up, Stuart Jacques Lu Cont Price’s bass-laden production genius is the reason for owning this. Impossible not to move to, it’s fresh, energetic and life affirming. There’s more where this came from, too – from the same album, I Love New York, Jump and Let It Will Be are all just as strong.
Madonna has spent in excess of two decades at the top of her game, selling over 200 million albums in the process, for a reason. Whatever the gossip columns come up with, records as strong as Sorry speak for themselves, and the dancefloor will be filled for a while yet.

Written and produced by Madonna and Stuart Price, “Sorry” purrs addictively with its electric glow and powerful discotheque grip. Released on three formats, it will be available on 2-track CD, Maxi CD and DVD. The 2-track and Maxi CD feature exclusive remixes of the album track “Let It Will Be” which was recorded at her incredible live show at London, KOKO in November.

Madonna is moving her family back to the US for five months.
The singer wants time to prepare for a world tour in the summer, and also hopes to escape rumours in the UK press that her marriage is in trouble.
“She feels like she is living in a goldfish bowl in Britain,” a source told The People. “She thinks an extended break will do them all the world of good and take the heat off for a while.”
The insider also insisted that Guy Ritchie will be accompanying the star to the Brit Awards on Wednesday, despite speculation that he was refusing to do so.
“Their marriage is strong and normal,” the source explained. “They argue like mad but it doesn’t mean anything. Madonna loves him and life here. There is no way she’d quit Britain for good.”

She Who Must Be Obeyed: Somewhere, Wonder Woman scratches her head and wonders what happened to her black tie breastplate. Backstage at the Grammys, Madonna boldly unveils her latest incarnation: Amazonian dominatrix disco warrior, a woman who wields a bow-and-arrow, leather whip and curling iron with equal acumen. The pumped-up pop queen not only appears ready to squeeze the life out of anyone brave enough to point out that Farrah hair fell out of fashion for a reason, but she also seems to be meting out some sort of bizarre punishment to her apparently misbehaving breasts and legs. Madonna binds the former in jeweled handcuffs courtesy of Alexander McQueen and encases the latter in sprayed-on, sure-to-be-sweaty leather leggings, resulting in a look guaranteed to produce giggles from all the girls back on Paradise Island.

Madonna is to tour this summer, according to MTV.
Before you get excited – what, you’re not excited at the prospect of paying upwards of a hundred pounds to see some wrinkly ol’ thing bend her body in a few scary ways while mumbling something about feeling like a virgin? – we don’t know where she’s touring, or when, exactly. But the news is pretty poor today, so…
Madonna told viewers of the Ellen DeGeneres show her plans yesterday, saying: “Um, okay, I can’t hide it anymore. I’m going on tour this summer.”?
Ellen, of course, likes ladies for real; Madonna merely likes to get kissin’ with a pair of pop tarts when it suits.
Yup, that’s it. About your business, people (i.e. it’s almost home time, may as well hit the boozer now).
