Madonna has finally opened about last year’s hip replacement surgery.
During the Paramount+ Question & Answer special, Madame X Presents: Madame Xtra Q&A, the now 63-year-old superstar fielded questions from fellow A-listers, including Ariana Grande, Amy Schumer, Billie Eilish, and Doja Cat. Ands in one question from Conor McGregor, the Like A Virgin hitmaker was asked how she stays in shape. And in response, she discussed her experiences with chronic pain, stating:
“Let me be really honest with you – I used to be, like, a fitness/workout maniac. You probably know that right?” “During my (2019 Madame X) tour – I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but I’m limping a lot – I was in more pain that I’ve ever been in in my life.”
While the singer called herself a “bionic woman” she also revealed that last year’s hip replacement surgery eased the pain, saying:
“So, how do I stay in shape? It’s all in your head.” “It’s called will, it’s called no one’s gonna stop me, and how I stay in shape is no one’s gonna stop me. And how I stay in shape is I don’t believe in limitations.”
Notwithstanding a selfie she posted to her Instagram Stories last year with her scar on display along with “recovery” and “beautiful scar” tags, the recent Q & A comments mark the first time Madonna has opened up about the invasive surgery,
