Madonna exclaimed, “It’s a f**king miracle that I’m standing here right now,” to her audience on Saturday night, as she shared her recent experience battling a bacterial infection that led to an emergency hospitalization.
She also decided to express her opinion on the upcoming 2024 presidential election. The pop legend claimed there is only one way to respond to Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy in 2024: “with outrage.”
The left-wing artist, 65, got emotional while discussing the health crisis that left her unconscious in a hospital bed.
The health emergency, described as a “serious bacterial infection” that required the mega pop star to spend several days in ICU, prompted her to reflect on her mother, Madonna Louise Ciccone, who passed from breast cancer at age 33.
“I had this strange thought,” she said. “I suddenly had sympathy and empathy for my mother.”
“About how lonely she must have felt in the hospital, knowing that she wasn’t going to live. And I was given another chance.”
“I must tell you, I don’t feel very well right now. But I can’t complain because I’m alive,” she added. “Thank God for my children and all of you, and all of your love and support. I really appreciate it.”
The 64-year-old pop star also said it was a “f**king miracle” she survived the ordeal.
“Less than four months ago I was in a hospital, and I was unconscious and people were thinking – predicting — that I might not make it,” she said.
“It’s a f**king miracle that I’m here right now. My mother, God bless her, she must be watching over me, she said, ‘Girl, it’s not your time to go.'”
Madonna had to rearrange her shows after she had to be rushed to the ICU and put on a ventilator when she was found slumped on the floor of her New York City apartment in June.
The singer is currently on her “Celebration” world tour, which kicked off on July 15 in Vancouver, with subsequent performances scheduled in North America and Europe.
