Page Six reports that Madonna is recovering after a scary medical emergency over the weekend. On Saturday, the Queen of Pop was found unresponsive and rushed to a New York City hospital. 64-year-old Madge was intubated for at least one night before having the tube removed. This afternoon, her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, posted a statement on Instagram. He writes that Madonna “developed a serious bacterial infection,” which led to several days in the ICU. While she’s out of the ICU, she’s still under medical care. Guy adds that Madonna’s 40th-anniversary world tour, The Celebration Tour, will be postponed. It was set to begin on July 15 in Vancouver. The good news? Guy says Madonna’s health is “improving,” and she’s expected to make a full recovery. Phew! Thank god she’s OK. Especially on this, our month of Pride.
Here’s Guy’s statement:
Page Six says they’ve been told Madonna’s 26-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon, “was by her side throughout the ordeal.” They add that Madonna is currently “alert and recovering.”
Guy writes that Madonna’s team will “share more details” about the rescheduled tour dates once they’ve figured that shit out. Last week, Madge posted these photos to Instagram, which appear to show her rehearsing for the tour. She captioned them, “The Calm Before The Storm…”:
Let’s all pray to our fave Catholic/Kabbalah saints (Saint Raphael the Archangel and Ashton Kutcher, respectively) for Madge to make a full recovery. I need her to be shakin’ her silicone bubble butt onstage weeeeeellll into her 120s.
