Madonna was reportedly rushed to a New York City intensive care unit due to a “serious bacterial infection.”

On Instagram, superstar Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary shared a post explaining the singer’s hospitalization and reassuring her fans that she is expected to recover fully.

“On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection, which led to a several-day stay in the ICU. Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected,” he wrote.

The “I Rise” singer announced the Celebration tour earlier this year in honor of the 40th anniversary of her music career.

The tour would have Madonna performing her greatest hits over the four decades, and would kick-off in Vancouver on July 15. Now, the tour is on pause with new tour dates expected to be announced soon. “At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour,” Oseary said in his update. “We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”

What’s most important is that the Queen of Pop is alert and recovering.

Madonna’s Dedication to LGBTQ+ Advocacy

Madonna is known for her constant HIV/AIDS advocacy, the LGBTQ+ representation in her documentary projects like Truth or Dare, and when she helped Ellen DeGeneres come out as gay. In 2010, she told the former TV host, “In fact, I wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for the gay community.”

In 2022, Madonna seemingly came out as LGBTQ when she posted a five second video to her TikTok account.  The clip shows  her holding a pair of bright fuchsia underwear before she scrunches the clothing into a ball and attempts to throw them into a trash can. Madonna captioned the short video, “If I miss, I’m gay!” The underwear does not go into the bin, but Madonna does not seem surprised. She then gives the camera a smirk and twirls away with a dramatic flair.

But many dedicated fans were quick to point out that this is not the first time she has commented on her sexuality. In 1991, she spoke with The Advocate about the gay themes in her song “Justify My Love.”

“It wasn’t just about me… I think everybody has a bisexual nature. That’s my theory. I could be wrong.”
