Madonna’s longtime friend Rosie O’Donnell gave an update on the pop icon’s health following her ICU stay last month.

O’Donnell shared a photo of herself with Madonna from the cult classic 1991 sports drama, “A League of Their Own,” with the caption, “remember when?”  

Many commenters expressed their good wishes for the 64-year-old recording artist, with one person saying outright, “@Rosie give us an update.”

“She is recovering at home – she is very strong in general,” O’Donnell replied.

“God bless her I hope she’s ok, I don’t care about the tour,” another account posted in the comments, which prompted Rosie to reply with a heart emoji and the comment, “shes good.”

Madonna was admitted to the ICU in June after developing a “serious bacterial infection,” according to her team.

“On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead (sic) to a several day stay in the ICU,” Madonna’s talent manager Guy Oseary shared Wednesday on Instagram. “Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.”

“We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.” 


The unexpected illness forced the “Material Girl” singer to postpone her upcoming Celebration tour, which was scheduled to kick off in Vancouver on July 15. Madonna previously canceled several shows while on tour in 2019 due to a knee injury. She wound up wrapping up the tour early.

Earlier this year, she discussed the Celebration tour with Page Six. Madonna was reportedly rehearsing up to 12 hours a day in preparation. 

“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” she told the outlet, explaining how her world tour would feature songs from all her prior albums beginning with her self-titled debut album that was first released in 1983.
