The queen of pop stepped out of the music spotlight this year and focused on a new venture, design. She partnered with her daughter Lourdes on a fashion line targeted at teens aptly named Material Girl. Madonna expanded her fitness empire by opening the first of her planned chain of gyms called Hard Candy in Mexico City. The jet-setting superstar focused on enlarging her home in NYC as well so that she and her kids, Lourdes, Rocco, David, and Mercy, have room to grow. She parted ways with her boyfriend Jesus Luz, but has lately been seen keeping company with the 20-something dancer Brahim Zaibat. The Weinstein Company also recently acquired the rights of the romantic feature film WE, which Madonna directed.
