Madonna underwent a serious health condition which resulted in urgent hospitalization, here's the current health status of the singer.
Madonna, or the ‘Queen of Pop’ as she is popularly known, is recognised for her talent and versatility as a singer, composer, and songwriter. She is regarded as a cultural icon, who has always pushed the boundaries of creativity and artistic expression.
Today, at even 64 years of age, Madonna continues to grow her legacy through tours, concerts, acting, running businesses, and so on. But, recently, the Material Girl singer came across a rather large health hurdle, which resulted in her spending a long time in the hospital. Here’s what happened to Madonna, and what her present health condition is.
Madonna’s health condition
Recently, the world came to know of Madonna’s tragic health condition and hospitalization through the Instagram handle of her long-time manager Guy Oseary. As per CNN, Oseary’s post said that she “developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU” last week. Madonna who was supposed to do her ‘Celebration’ tour in July starting in Canada, has postponed it. It was supposed to cover Canada, the USA, and then Europe. But it looks like the ‘Frozen’ singer is taking some time off to attend to her health.
His Instagram post came as quite a shocker to her fans, and it said the following:
“Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected,”
“At this time we need to pause all commitments, which include the tour,” Oseary wrote. “We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
Madonna’s current update
Madonna was rushed to a New York City hospital earlier last week. But it seems like she is recovering now. As per BBC’s source, the singer is in the clear now, as she is recovering and feeling better. She was allegedly taken back to her New York home in a private ambulance and is finally out of the ICU.
As per BBC, it isn’t quite clear what caused her bacterial infection, but since it was deemed serious, she need intensive care. But Madonna lovers from all over the world are rooting for her, and have sent in a lot of love and support to her through Instagram. From The Weeknd to Isla Fisher and Rita Wilson, so many well-wishers have come forward and wished her a speedy recovery.
Speculations about Madonna’s health
While on one side, it is been told that Madonna was battling a bacterial infection, some others seem to believe that the star has experienced burnout. As per The Sun, a source close to Madonna allegedly said the following, about the extreme regime the singer has been following:
"The countdown was well and truly on. Madonna had all her chips on one number, which was this tour."
“She was working overtime, but she clearly burnt herself out and people around her have been politely reminding her that she is not 45 anymore, let alone 25. “She needed to pace herself. Pushing herself so hard was extremely risky.
“But if she can get herself back in shape, the tour will have a whole lot more buzz around it, and she’s already got loads of publicity — even if it’s the wrong kind.
“Many of us feel the constant remarks about her age have put pressure on her to compete, so we are relieved that she has been forced to take time out and put her health first.”
Some people seem to believe that Madonna was pushing herself to keep up with younger stars such as Taylor Swift and Pink, who are both doing tours back-to-back.
