In May's issue of ELLE magazine our newest cover star Madonna talks intimately to Louise Gannon about her new album, family life, staying in shape and her love of Cadbury Creme Eggs ... This year Madonna turns 50, yet on the cover of this month's ELLE magazine, out tomorrow, you would hardly believe it. In her latest interview she tells us just how she stays at the top of her game and reveals how she keeps in such incredible shape. "There are no short cuts to being Madonna," she tells us. "It's all about hard work. There is no easy way. If you want to know how I look like I do, it's diet and exercise and constantly being careful." She also swears by oxygen facials and never goes in the sun, drinks rarely and would like to work out for three hours a day, she reveals in a candid interview on the eve of the hotly anticipated release of her 26th album, Hard Candy. It probably comes as no surprise that her routine is regimented and strict and that's how she gets such great results. "I'm not going to slow down, get off this ride, stay home and get fat!" she declares. But isn't it hard to be perfect all the time Madge? "One of the worst things about Britain is that it has such fabulous candy," she says and lets slip that when she's worked particularly hard at something, like the rest of us she rewards herself with a treat. "I love Cadbury Fruit and Nut, Crunchies and Maltesers. But my absolute favourite is a Cadbury Creme Egg. I bite straight in to it and suck all that good stuff right out!"
Brills! Does it really come as a surprise that Madonna would choose to inject a bit about her favorite candy in a coverstory interview to promote her new album entitled Hard Candy? The woman is insanely savvy and calculating ... everything she says is well-thought out component in her master plan for world domination. She is truly a media genius, I just love her. Personally, I prefer her VF cover to this coverphoto but they're both very nice. They do look a bit similar (except for the hat) so I wouldn't be surprised if the photos came from the same photoshoot. Never a wasted moment in Madonna's life. This issue of UK Elle hits newsstands tomorrow. [Source]
