Congrats to Madonna, who today utilized the force of her Pilates-and-yoga-brutalized sinewy tendons to cut a formidable ribbon with some very large scissors, thus symbolizing the opening of her new Hard Candy Fitness chain in Mexico City, a place you can now work out while gazing upon a giant mural of Madonna’s face.
Residents and important people, including “drag queens in leg warmers,” were on hand to celebrate the event and participate in an introductory dance class. Someday the sports chain may expand to include gyms in the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, and Russia. Until then, we will stick to bar sports.
