At Sunday’s star-studded Golden Globes, Madonna took home the award for best original song, effectively dissed Ricky Gervais and looked majorly glam in second-skin Reem Acra … but her stay-sexy secret is a lot more basic than you’d think.

“I’d say my fishnets, but I am not wearing any tonight, so that’s kind of a lie,” she told reporters backstage at the Globes before declaring, “Victoria’s Secret underpants” as her wardrobe necessity. (Tweezers are her travel beauty must, she added.)

Undergarments aside, the Queen of Pop relies on dancing to keep her sinewy body in tip-top shape. “The best thing for your bum is dancing, and I can do plenty of that,” she joked.

Madonna’s take-no-prisoners attitude even affects her styling decisions. “I am wearing a dress by a designer named Reem Acra, and I love it,” she gushed of her bodice-topped gown. “I feel like I am wearing chain mail and I am ready to go to battle.”
