Madonna - happy to turn 50

At least there’s one star who, despite their image-driven line of work, doesn’t see ageing as something terrible and to be avoided at all costs. Speaking at a press conference, Madonna revealed her feelings about turning 50 in August. She said she’s certainly not dreading being ten years from retirement – she is positively welcoming it with open arms.

"Turning 50 is a landmark for everybody. Everybody keeps mentioning it, but I just see it as another excuse to have a birthday party!" The Material Girl added: “I feel stronger now than, maybe, 20 years ago – but I think your physicality is connected to your consciousness so if your mind is strong, your body will be strong.”

How very refreshing – finally a star not scared of ageing. Although this is coming from Madonna the health freak who has for years been following a macrobiotic diet, practically lives in the gym and has access to every skincare treatment known to man. She has no need to worry about the hands of time. She’ll probably be saying the exact same in another 50 years.

Hey, she’ll probably live forever…
