Nelly Furtado doesn't worry about the impact getting older will have on her career and says Madonna should take the same attitude
Nelly Furtado has blasted Madonna over her reluctance to age naturally.
The 30-year-old 'Maneater' singer insists she won't try to make herself appear younger in order to boost her career and would rather enjoy tea and biscuits than undertake a gruelling exercise regime.
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."
Nelly - who is married to sound engineer Demacio Castellon and has a six-year-old daughter, Nevis, 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."
