Golden Globes: Madonna hopes Elton John will one day forgive her
Madonna, the Golden Globe winner for original song, is currently juggling a lot of creative endeavors — but before talking about any of that backstage at the Golden Globes, she had a few things to say about her derrière.
"I'm just dancing," she said, revealing she's not the Pilates nut she used to be. "The best thing for your bum is dancing."
She showed off that fit 53-year-old body in a Reem Acra dress: "I feel like I’m wearing chain mail, and I'm ready to go into battle." (Perhaps she can hang onto it for her upcoming Super Bowl halftime show?)
The multi-hyphenate, whose "Masterpiece" from "W.E." beat Elton John's "Hello Hello" from "Gnomeo & Juliet" for original song, said of her fellow nominee, "I hope he speaks to me for the next million years. He'll win another award though, so I don’t feel bad."
Madonna said that for her upcoming album, "MDNA," she's enjoying working with producer Martin Solveig again. "I love his sound. It’s really fresh. It doesn't sound like anybody else's."
Fans of the queen of pop should expect to work their smile muscles upon its release — the word she used to describe its sound was "happy."
