Having opened the first of a worldwide chain of fitness centres in Mexico last year, Madonna is to add another string to her bow.
Mandrake can disclose that the American pop singer is involved in negotiations about becoming a player in the London nightclub scene.
"Madonna sees it as a natural move," says one of her associates. "She has ambitious plans."
In Mayfair on Thursday night, she met Tony Fernandes, the Malaysian entrepreneur, who is the majority shareholder in the Aura group of nightspots, to discuss buying a stake in the company.
Aura Mayfair, to which Madonna, 52, is a regular visitor, runs events after Formula One Grand Prix races around the world. Fernandes, 46, who made his fortune through the no-frills AirAsia airline, is the team principal of the Lotus Racing team.
If the Queen of Pop does become involved in Aura, she would become a rival Mayfair landlord to her former husband, Guy Ritchie, 42, who owns The Punchbowl pub.
Madonna unveiled the Hard Candy Fitness gym in Mexico City in November. She had earlier branched out into other areas including writing children's books, designing clothes and making wine.
