Madonna Expected To Make Full Recovery After Serious Medical Scare

Singer, songwriter, and actress Madonna has been hospitalized after a "serious bacterial infection," but is expected to make a full recovery, as per an Instagram post by her manager, Guy Oseary. The "Material Girl" musician (64) has been forced to put her upcoming "Celebration" tour on hold when she was admitted into the ICU because of the medical scare. 

Oseary's post read, "On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in the ICU. Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected." 

Madonna announced her world tour back in January to celebrate 40 years in music, but it looks like those plans are now on hold. Her manager continued on Instagram, "At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows."

Madonna was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive

Madonna was apparently rushed to a New York City hospital after being found unresponsive, per Page Six. The "Back That Up To The Beat" singer was "intubated for at least one night before having the tube removed," according to the outlet. 

The songwriter's last medical scare was reported back in 2020. She had to undergo hip replacement surgery after she injured herself on her "Madame X" tour 11 months prior (via People). Talking about the experience on the 2021 "Madame X Presents: Madame Xtra Q&A" special, the "Frozen on Fire" musician shared (via People), "Let me be really honest with you — I used to be, like, a fitness/workout maniac. You probably know that right? ... During my [Madame X] tour — I don't know if you've noticed it, but I'm limping a lot — I was in more pain than I've ever been in in my life. I'm a bionic woman — I had hip replacement surgery."

She went on to talk about how her determination is what keeps her in shape. She said, "So, how do I stay in shape? It's all in your head ... It's called will, it's called no one's gonna stop me, and how I stay in shape is no one's gonna stop me. And how I stay in shape is I don't believe in limitations."
