Madonna to open a string of gyms

This woman never quits with the entrepreneurial spirit – Madonna, just weeks after announcing a new fashion line, has now put out a press release stating that she will open a chain of fitness centers called Hard Candy, after her album of the same name.  But these won’t just be your run-of-the-mill gyms; they’ll combine exercise, fashion, and entertainment in quantities to be revealed at a later date.

The first Hard Candy location is due to open in Mexico City next month, and ten other locations will soon follow.  The most interesting tidbit: not one of the first wave of Hard Candy branches is to be located in the US.  Make of that what you will.
