Madonna's Tour Is Sticky and Sweaty

Madonna's Tour Is Sticky and Sweaty

Madonna, no stranger to sweating, has brought her high-fitness level to the stage of her tour Sticky and Sweet.

I have not seen the show myself, but it's pretty clear from the pictures that all her hard work at her gym is paying off. Madonna has a bit of pole dancing, jump roping, deep squats, and more during the show, all while she's singing, too — talk about the ultimate talk test. And you can bet this 50-year-old rock star is not letting a little world tour get in the way of staying healthy, People reports that:

"The harder Madonna works the happier she is," says Rosenberg, a longtime friend. "Because she was a dancer, that's why. It's practice, practice, practice."

On her opening night in Cardiff, Wales, "She had a massage and a facial – things are very quiet," says the rep.

Before each show, she spends an hour in hair and makeup then performs some vocal exercises. Next, she warms up with some form of exercise, "probably some free weights."

I've always been impressed with her dedication to fitness, but when she is on tour I am reminded of how fit she really is — not many women half her age could keep up with her on and off stage. Cheers Madonna, and happy touring.

I love her! She looks fabulous and I went to a concert of hers last year and her performance was incredible! I've always looked up to her because she doesnt care what you think.

I like her and look up to her sometimes, and other times she bothers me. I love that she loves working out, and working hard. She is a dedicated person, and for that she is a great role model. But sometimes she takes things way too far, and goes way overboard. She works out to the point of obsession, it seems. And yes, you can work out too much. Also, there's nothing wrong with a 50 year old feeling sexy, but once again she's more raunchy than sexy. It's not cute when you're that old! Classiness is sexy, I think.

How can people talk so badly about a woman who makes pop music, something so fickle last so long, and looking darn good all the while?She inspires me in every aspect of my life.

She IS a type "A" personality that has passed embarrassing. Never liked her, but if she'd calm down a bit, I might be able to muster a little respect for her.

...there's no excuse for pole dancing at 50, no matter how hot you are. She should be artistically and professionally beyond that by now.

Don't get me wrong, Madonna is in GREAT shape, regardless of her age. But her stage outfits make me want to vomit. I don't care HOW great you look at 50, there's no reason for that.
