Madonna's bizarre quarantine video has fans worried about her mental health: 'Are you losing your mind?'
Madonna got her fans worried after she posted a strange video while quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic. Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the 'La Isla Bonita' hitmaker shared her "quarantine diary" with her followers, where she slammed her son for bizarre comments and claimed she had lost three friends, possibly to the coronavirus, in the past 24 hours, New Idea reports.
In "Quarantine diary, number nine," the 61-year-old singer-songwriter began by saying, "We can't always have a good day," she said, before reading something she had just typed on a typewriter in front of her.
"The burning spear makes its way into the core of me and slithers down my leg, and I can concentrate on nothing except the idea of a fix, and I wonder what form that will take," she continued.
Madonna then mentioned three people she knew who had died in the past 24 hours, although it is uncertain if they died from the virus.
One of those she mentioned was dance music exec Orlando Puerta, who reportedly died from an "upper respiratory infection." However, the results of his COVID-19 tests are yet to be revealed.
Others who she claimed to have lost were her "cousin" and her "security guard's brother."
The 'Crazy For You' singer then abruptly began reprimanding her son. "If my son says I have a broken hip one more time I might implode," she said. It is unclear which one of her two sons she's referring to in the clip. They are Rocco Ritchie, 19, and David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie, 14.
"If someone says you're broken so many times a day, you do start to feel that way," the songstress declared.
Madonna then held a small sculpture in her hand in front of the camera and said, "This is me right now, okay," she said. "This is how I feel every day."
"This is how I sleep every night, this is how I take a bath, this is how I exercise," she continued, "This is how I live right now, in case you were interested."
The Queen of Pop's post was not well taken by many of her followers, many of whom were worried about her state of mind. Some others argued there's a mystery message in the megastar's footage.
"Are you losing your mind? Who is shooting this shit? What are you mumbling about? You're "over it"? Did those ppl mean anything to you?" one wrote.
"WTFuck are you doing. Next time you have nothing appropriate to say or do... Go for 'ANOTHER' session of Bottox. Make us a favor. This crazy need to be RELEVANT.," another added.
However, others expressed support for the pop icon. "I don't know why anybody would be hateful on this thread before she is a celebrity she is a person who is in pain physically mentally and emotionally give her a break," one urged.
"Praying for you Madonna. Jesus died for all our sins, all we need do is repent and he is gracious enough to forgive us. He loves you and there is still time. May the Holy Spirit draw you near," another wrote.
