Annick-Isabel Marcoux, the head of downtown Toronto’s new Hard Candy Fitness centre – or, as it’s known to many, “that gym owned by Madonna” – looks as cinematically futuristic as the luxury fitness facility she runs.
Wearing a cocoon-like white jacket and a sci-fi platinum pixie cut, Ms. Marcoux fits right in with the gym’s shiny red chrome exercise equipment and furniture, which looks like it belongs on a starship.
It doesn’t resemble any fitness centre you have seen before, and there is a reason for this: Ms. Marcoux argues that Torontonians are eager to experiment with their workouts.

Madonna is known for a lot of things, subtlety not among them. Today the pop icon posted an Instagram with the caption “Doing some house work before heading to the studio with Avicii! #artforfreedom #clean.”
It’s a pleasant surprise for fans and a great move on Madge’s behalf: Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” just became the most-streamed Spotify song ever. Not a bad look!
Madge actually has a troubled history with Avicii, though. There was her controversial appearance at Avicii’s Ultra Fest set two years ago, when she took the stage and said, “I’ve been here in spirit for many years, but it’s good to finally be standing on the stage. In my world, the words ‘music’ and ‘dance’ are not separated.” She concluded her cameo with an ill-advised ecstasy joke, “Who has seen Molly?” which deadmau5 and other DJs blasted as “pandering” and a misrepresentation of the EDM scene.
Regardless, Madonna and the Swedish DJ are still pals. And if their collaboration is anywhere as good as Avicii’s remix of Madonna’s “Girl Gone Wild,” we’re in good hands.
Steve Nestar joined the TV show tonight with his dance group and made it through, they showed a segment of him dancing with Madonna (he was on board for the COADF promo tour and Confessions Tour) and his performance with the group.
You can watch their performance HERE unfortunately this does not include the Madonna segment, this will be repeated tomorrow (Saturday) on RTL8 at 18.10!
Just another day in the house of M, you know, the “Hung Up” singer is just scrubbing away at the shower floors and putting the finishing touches on that toilet bowl shine. Oh, and she’s doing all of this before GOING TO THE STUDIO WITH THE WORLDS BIGGEST DJ/DANCE PRODUCER, AVICII!
I’ve said it time and time again, Madonna needs to do her own thing and stop working with trending artists/producers BUT this time around, I’m fine with the potential of this project because after all, it’s #ARTFORFREEDOM and not a new album or single, right?
Oh, and she misspelled Avicii… sigh.
Madonna has revealed that she is working with Avicii.
The 55-year-old superstar made the announcement via her official Instagram.
She captioned a photo posted this evening (March 7): “Doing some house work before heading to the studio with Avicci! (sic)”
The ‘Hey Brother’ hitmaker has yet to collaborate with any other major artists, but was credited on Leona Lewis’s single ‘Collide’ after claims of unauthorised sampling were settled with label Syco before the case went to court.
Madonna first confirmed that she was working on a new album back in February.
“Yes, plans are in the works already,” she told The Canadian Press. “Don’t ask me with who – it’s a secret. Top secret.”
The upcoming LP will serve as a follow-up to 2012′s MDNA.
The singer recently performed a duet with Miley Cyrus as part of the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer’s MTV Unplugged session.
The pair sang a mash up of Madonna’s 2000 single ‘Don’t Tell Me’ and Cyrus’s ‘We Can’t Stop’.
