New York: She surprised fashion watchers by opting for an uncharacteristically demure gown for the Met Gala and `Queen of Pop` Madonna said that she made the choice because she was feeling "fat".

The svelte 52-year-old won praise for her floor length Stella McCartney silk gown but told the gathered reporters that she was not feeling confident in the designer creation, reported Us magazine online.

"I feel fat," said the `Vogue` hitmaker who is famed for her disciplined macrobiotic diet and intense fitness regimes.

The singer usually prefers more risque creations and last year she had arrived for the Gala in thigh-high leather boots and a black mini.

At the end of 2010, Madonna famously sacked her personal trainer, Tracy Anderson, in exchange for her own personally tailored workout regimes.

The mother of four`s surprise confession however did not stop her from enjoying the night and she danced the night away with her peers.
