Furtado insists that she will never try and cheat father time in order to reverse the aging process, and would rather just sit around her kitchen and eat instead.
"I am not ready to adjust physically, just to be marketable. My sell-by date will run out eventually," she said.
"Unlike Madonna, I wouldn't be willing to do Pilates round the clock, just to slow down the deterioration of my body. I prefer to sit in the kitchen, drink tea and eat biscuits," she added.
Furtado recently revealed that she rewrote her new album, Mi Plan, just to please her daughter.
"I had English writer's block so I decided to make an album in Spanish," she said. "I played it to my daughter and she said to me, 'Mummy there are too many slow songs. You need more fast songs.'
"So mummy went back to the studio and put a couple more fast songs on the album.
"She's like a little A and R person and is pretty musical for her age."
