[ 2006-08-02 09:30 ]

对以性感著称的歌坛大姐麦当娜而言,此次“全球40岁以上身段最佳十名女星”评选结果着实令她荣耀无比。日前,时尚健身杂志Top Sante杂志“40岁以上最佳身段女星”评选新鲜出炉,47岁的麦当娜力压群芳夺得冠军,她苗条但不失性感的身材竟然超过了今年42岁的前超模埃莉·麦克弗森。麦当娜于7月30日展开了世界巡回演唱会的欧洲站演出,在演唱会上,麦当娜跨坐在马鞍上,并在舞台上空盘旋展现她高超的舞技。

Currently writhing around in riding leathers on her UK tour, Madonna has the best body in the world for a woman over 40, according to a new poll. 

The fiercely-honed pop diva - a yoga devotee - beat svelte stars like supermodel Elle Mapherson, Twiggy, Sharon Stone and Oscar-winner Halle Berry to take the top spot in the survey by Top Sante magazine.

Although Madonna, 47, evidently loves flaunting her curves right now in leotards and jodhpurs mostly, she has hinted she would consider going under the knife if her super-firm body ever started to sag.

But the mother-of-two has said she would probably keep it a secret if she ever did have surgery.

"I think about it, like everybody, and I don't rule it out," she has been quoted as saying.

"But I am not going to hold a press conference if I have plastic surgery."

On Sunday Madonna finally kicked off the opening night of the European leg of her world tour.

The queen of pop entertained a crowd of 59,000 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff with an erotically-charged performance. It was the first time her Confessions tour had been seen outside America and in a stadium.

She said: "It's also our first show in Europe. I'm sick of people sitting down in concerts. It's really boring."

Fans saw her sing from a crucifix and the performance contained provocative dance routines.
