Who's That Girl?

This photo of Madonna was posted on the internet last week, and the article with the photo went on about her "guns" (arms) as she and her assistant were walking home from the gym. I was more surprised to see the comments than the picture of Madonna. Most comments were shocked about her muscles, and that she looked too muscular or manly. Very few supported her fitness. I wonder how fit the people are who made the comments that she looked too muscular/manly? My guess is that they're probably not very fit. Madonna will be 50 this year. I'm impressed. Is 50 the new 30?

OMG!!! I would kill to look like that!!! Too manly??? I don't think so...

She looks hot! Most 20 year olds don't look that tight. Granted, it's not a soft, feminine look but it suits her just fine. I've been jealous of her arms for decades. Sometimes they get too skinny, IMHO, but they look really solid in this pic.

see, i think she looks amazing. it's so refreshing that she isn't all drugged up and drunk like a lot of today's performers are.

I just don't get it. She looks great to me.

Can you imagine being around 50 and having that physique? I suppose it's not impossible, and i hope to at least have half that physique at 50.

I so agree. Then take a look as someone like Amy Winehouse. She's skinny but not healthy.

I think it is mostly that they aren't used to seeing a muscular physique on pop stars. If she was a runner they would think she looked more normal. I could be wrong though and they could also think that Deena Kastor is too manly.

You're right, but I guess they're not used to seeing it at all, which is kind of sad. I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though.
