Singer Madonna, who will appear in Rio de Janeiro on her MDNA world tour, has reserved an entire hotel for herself and her team, the online edition of the daily O Globo said Tuesday.

"The team includes, among many others, physical trainers, personal assistants, hairdressers, wardrobe attendants" as well as her four children and their tutors, the Web site said.

It added that due to the large number of people surrounding her on the tour, Madonna decided to reserve an entire hotel by the sea at Ipanema, a stretch of coastline that together with Copacabana and Leblon make up Rio's most famous string of beaches.

The MDNA tour, which kicked off in Israel last May, will reach Latin America next weekend, when the Queen of Pop appears in Mexico before moving on to Colombia.

On Dec. 2 the singer will perform in Rio de Janeiro, after which she will be off to Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre followed by Buenos Aires and Santiago, finally winding up her tour in the Argentine city of Cordoba. EFE
