Madonna is the most successful and best-selling artist of all time if the Guinness World Records book is anything to go by. Well, at least in the year 2000 that’s what it said. She has been around for years and despite her age, she’s still a showstopper. At 61, Madonna is still doing what she does best, entertaining the world and she seemingly drank quite a lot from the fountain of youth.
How does she stay so young? Well, she sticks to a macrobiotic diet, something that was introduced to her by her former husband Guy Ritchie. This kind of diet is more focused on eating vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fish, and fermented soy sauce, among many other foods that are traditionally eaten in the eastern part of Asia. That’s not it yet, she also eliminates meat, dairy, wheat, and eggs from her daily diet. Seems almost like she’s missing all the good ol’ tasty stuff in her diet but such a body does not always come easy. It takes some sacrifice. She eats lots of fruits and normally eats six small meals throughout her entire day instead of the traditional three meals a day. This goes a long way in boosting her metabolism and helps her maintain energy due to her intense diet.
A great diet goes hand in hand with a great workout routine, something she has and takes very seriously. Her exercise routine includes yoga which helps her keep her arms slender. It’s also a great workout for her mind. Madonna also does cardio that includes swimming, dancing, lifting weights, and running. She also does resistance training which is quick especially when she’s on tour. Through resistance training, she focuses more on major body muscles like her arms, legs, chest, core, and shoulders.
Her exercise routine also involves side planks that focus on her core and her hip area. She also does crunches to keep her abdominal muscles strong and to tighten her core.
Aside from Madonna’s diet and exercise, another thing that makes her look great is her fashion. Over the course of her career that spans over thirty years, Madonna has managed to reinvent herself continuously and consistently, always bringing us something different every time she steps onto the big stage or the red carpet. She’s always so consistent and has over the years just evolved into an amazing fashion-forward star, with her style becoming so influential to people who are so many years younger than she is.
We have to say though that while her sense of style is unique, it’s not for everybody. She has shocked the world a number of times with her looks, but that’s what makes her who she is.
Aside from her appearance, we can’t take from her the fact that she’s smart. Did you know that before joining the music industry Madonna was an A student? Well, she passed with flying colors and even got into the university. It was then that she discovered her love for showbiz, dropped out, and moved to The Big Apple, New York.
She may have dropped out of school but for sure her brains go a long way in making her look as great as she does at her age.
