Madonna goes straight back to fitness

Don't tell me to stop! Madonna goes straight back to fitness regime with post-Grammys workout alongside two gal pals

Madonna may have had a smash performance on Sunday's Grammy Awards broadcast, but that doesn't mean she's going to rest on her laurels.

The 55-year-old was right back to her fitness regime Monday, going to a gym in Los Angeles for a workout with two female companions.
After a night of glamour, the Material Girl dressed down for her outing.

The Vogue singer wore black drawstring Victoria's Secret Pink sweatpants with a large No. 86 on the right front thigh and the words Love Pink down the left leg.
On the top, she wore a black-and-white polka-dot Adidas zip-up sweatshirt and a black puffy vest.
Her blonde hair was tucked up in a black baseball cap with a large star on the front and she wore large, wraparound sunglasses.

She had a black handbang slung across one shoulder  and wore finglerless black gloves and pink-and-gray sneakers.
A dark-haired female companion, also dressed in workout wear, walked right beside the Evita star and kept a tight hold on the star's right arm while carrying a large bottle of water.
Her other escort, a dark-haired young woman in shorts and a tank top, lagged behind, talking on one phone and holding another in her left hand.

Earlier this month the singer-actress-dancer was hobbling around New York on crutches, after allegedly bruised a bone in her foot while performing dance moves in high heels.
But she appeared  to have made a quick recovery, although she did carry a walking stick with her on the red carpet Sunday as well as on stage.
On Sunday, the mother of four walked the red carpet with her eight-year-old son David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie as the pair wore matching tuxedos.

The boy revealed that he chose the matching black Ralph Lauren suits for them to wear.
He also announced to Ryan Seacrest that he'll be getting a grill to match his mother's.
'She said she'd get me a grill for this birthday,' he said, while Madge chimed in with an excuse, 'We haven't had time, you have to go to the dentist and get moulds.'

Later in the show, Madonna performed as part of a historic event as 33 couples, both gay and straight, were married live at the Grammy Awards in an emotionally charged performance celebrating a year where the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down and scores of states legalized same-sex unions.
Queen Latifah officiated the mass wedding during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' powerful rendition, with Mary Lambert, of their song 'Same Love,' which has become a marriage equality anthem.
Following the vows, delivered as the stage was transformed into a makeshift church, with an altar and stained glass windows, Madonna, wearing a white suit and hat, performed 'Open Your Heart' to a standing ovation and tears from not just the brides and grooms but celebrity guests including Keith Urban.

The idea for the weddings originated last fall when Mr. Ehrlich sat down with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis over lunch to brainstorm ideas for a possible performance. Knowing that their concerts have occasionally featured onstage marriage proposals, Mr. Ehrlich suggested taking it a step further with a full wedding.

The band was into it, so a casting agency was hired to find the couples, who at first were told only that the ceremony would take place on live television. The couples each signed confidentiality agreements — promising not to tell even their families.

Defending the multi-marriage stunt from critics against the Grammy wedding ceremony, National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences president Neil Portnoy said, 'I expect that people with all kinds of opinions might voice them, and that's healthy, but we don't need to stoop to the level of trying to find gimmicks and sensationalistic approaches to what we do.'
