Singer Nelly Furtado
isn't going to obsess about getting older. The pop star says she'd rather enjoy good food than stick to an intense exercise regime -- like some people she knows.
She said: “I am not ready to adjust physically, just to be marketable. My sell-by date will run out eventually. Unlike Madonna
, I wouldn’t be willing to do Pilates round the clock, just to slow down the deterioration of my body. I prefer to sit in the kitchen, drink tea and eat biscuits.” Madonna works out for many hours a day (Getty)
Nelly, who is married to sound engineer Demacio Castellon and has a six-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, took a two-year break after she finished promoting her 2006 album Loose
and says she was enjoyed having the time to lead a more normal life. She explained to Germany’s Petra
magazine: “After the tour I was terribly exhausted and had to find a way back to a healthy routine. I cooked chicken soup for my family and just enjoyed everyday life. The small things that make you happy are important to me.”
