Madonna's underwear are her favourite possessions.

The 53-year-old singer likes to look sexy for her boyfriend 24-year-old Brahim Zabrat and wears racy lingerie from underwear chain Victoria's Secret with stockings.

She is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "My favourite things in life are my fishnets and my Victoria's Secret underpants."

The 'Material Girl' star is currently preparing for the release of her 12th album 'M.D.N.A' and has dropped her exercise regime in favour of dance workouts to keep her in the best shape.

She said: "I'm not really doing Pilates any more. I'm just dancing. You know, dance aerobics. The best thing for your bum."

Madonna's racy past is no secret, with her releasing an explicit book, 'Sex' featuring nude photographs of her in 1992, and making a sexually-explicit video for her 1990 single 'Justify My Love', which was banned by MTV.

The singer has also recently credited "love" with helping her retain her youthful looks.

She said: "'What's my secret? Love. I don't know. I don't have a secret. The most important thing is being happy."

'M.D.N.A' is scheduled for release in March, while Madonna is set to play the Super Bowl XLVI Half Time Show in February.
