Madonna is unarguably one of the most popular and successful musicians of all time. Since her rise to fame in the 1980s, she has released some of the most iconic songs and is frequently regarded as part of Pop royalty. S
She has also dabbled in Hollywood and won several awards for her music career and film features.
Decades since she first hit success, Madonna is still very active in the music industry and regularly releases and performs her older and new tracks.
She is also very active when it comes to interviews and interactions with her fans. She recently shared her insight about being a celebrity and revealed some secrets, like what keeps her looking so youthful and beautiful.
Here’s a recap of these precious tidbits that Madonna has shared.
Madonna Has Learned A Lot From Her Fame
Madonna has been in the music scene for decades, and any artiste that has stayed that long has undoubtedly learned a lot about the industry and the reality of fame.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey for Oprah Magazine, the singer shared some of these lessons. “There were many years when I thought fame, fortune, and public approval would bring me happiness. But one day you wake up and realize they don’t,” the superstar said.
She also explained that she felt like material things such as public opinion, fame, and relationships defined her for a long time until she had a big turning point during her pregnancy.
She said, “I wanted to understand what I would teach my daughter, and I didn’t really know where I stood on things. I wanted to know the meaning of true and lasting happiness and how I could go about finding it.”
Two Things That Help Madonna Remain Youthful
Madonna has been a huge part of continued fame and aloof from her talent and good music; she has incredible youthful looks. Many of her fans have expressed admiration for how the singer has managed to defy time and look like she barely ages.
In her Oprah interview, she was asked if her yoga practice helps her maintain her good looks? This question referenced a previous statement Madonna made during a previous interview with Oprah about trying out yoga.
In response, the “Hung Up” crooner said, “That’s part of it. The other part is my attitude.” She explained that she thinks that people who believe they have a good attitude but are still aging simply “don’t have a great enough attitude. It’s part lifestyle, and it’s part blessing from God.” She added that her religion, Kabbalah, has been a great help in her journey to attain happiness.
Her Beauty Routine And Tricks
Aside from her constant positive attitude to life and her yoga, Madonna also has some tricks up her sleeve that help to maintain her youthful look.
She recently launched a skincare line called MDNA SKIN that incorporates all these tricks and skincare knowledge. Now, all her fans and those who admire how good she looks can access her decades-long secrets.
She previously dropped a few hints about what forms part of her skincare, such as her statement during an interview with Elle, where she spoke about her time living in the United Kingdom.
“I love the weather. All that rain and moisture is so good for the skin.” Her esthetician, Tarin Graham, also confirmed this to W Magazine when she said, “When it comes to skincare, the most important element is hydration.”
