Washington, Apr 4 : Pop icon Madonna has vowed to keep herself busy with work in old age as well - because she is scared of the idea of becoming fat.
The 49-year-old singer is determined to continue her hectic work as she fears that giving up work would make her gain weight.
"I'm not going to be defined by my age. Why should any woman? I'm not going to slow down, get off this ride, stay home and get fat. I'd never get fat," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I feel great and if anything, I'm probably speeding up. There's so much more in my life to deal with. I've got work to do, children to raise, a husband to please and a world to save.
"I have a total sense of urgency about it. I don't feel I've done everything. I do feel I want more, more, more," she added.
