On April 1 2008, Madonna was featured on the cover of Elle magazine to promote her Hard Candy album. Madonna explained to Elle how she stays at the top of her game and revealed how she keeps in such incredible shape:
‘There are no short cuts to being Madonna. 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 works out for three hours a day.
When asked if she has a weakness, she revealed:
‘One of the worst things about Britain is that it has such fabulous candy. 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!’
Hard Candy has an absolutely brilliant closer in Voices-Madonna at her absolute best!
Totally agree. I think “The Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You” and “Voices” were an excellent close to the album. They were probably my favorite songs on the album.
“Diet and exercise” plus cosmetic surgery (yes already by then) and lighting and photoshop and stylists and money money money and on and on. Even then there were heaps of candid and untouched shots that were far from ‘fabulous’. Let’s be real girl. The myths of celebrity. Eyeroll. Looking back at this woman with hindsight is an interesting thing
Also this album sucked.
