In June 2023, singer Madonna was put in a medically induced coma. The singer went through a serious health scare and it has left her reflecting on her life. She shared some of her musings at the first of her five sold-out Celebration World Tour shows at Los Angeles’ Kia

The 65-year-old singer who is known for hits such as ‘Like a Virgin’ and ‘Vogue’ opened up to the crowd about her health problems that stopped her from being in action in summer last year. The singer famously had to cancel the North American leg of her Celebration tour. The singer had caught a bacterial infection that had gotten so severe that she had to be hospitalized and put into a 48-hour medically induced coma.


“I didn’t think I was going to make it, neither did my doctors. That’s why I woke up with all of my children sitting around me,” Madonna later said about her traumatic experience. “I forgot five days of my life – or my death. I don’t really know where I was. If you want to know my secret and how I pulled through and how I survived, I thought, ‘I’ve got to be there for my children. I have to survive for them.’”

During Monday night’s show, the singer showed gratitude to all the medical personnel who helped her get better. She thanked those of them in the audience who helped her during and after the days of her medically induced coma.

According to Variety, the singer gave her nine-minute speech much later in the show. She told the audience, “I have fallen off a lot of horses and broken a lot of bones. I have a titanium hip. I mean, the list goes on and on, but nothing can stop me… This summer I had a surprise. It’s called a near-death experience.”


She admitted to the audience that her experience was “pretty scary,” she shared that her assistant later related to her the first word she saying upon waking up from the coma, “the first word I said was ‘No.’ And I’m pretty sure that God was saying to me, ‘Do you wanna come with us? You wanna come with me? You wanna go this way?’ And I said, ‘No. No.’” She added one more for emphasis: “No!”

Madonna then went on to mention Dr. David Agus by name, saying he was the one who helped guide her through the crisis. “He’s put up with so many entertaining phone calls from me. When I was sick this summer and I literally couldn’t walk from my bed to the toilet, I would call him every other day and ask him why I didn’t have any energy. When was my energy gonna come back? When was I gonna feel myself again? When could I go back on tour again? When, when, when, when, when, when, when? And all he would say was, ‘Go outside in the sun.’”

She also thanked “everyone who’s here that took care of me and listened to all of my endless complaining and need for predictions that I could not have. You are patient and you are kind, and you still are. You still help me take care of everybody I know that’s sick. Thank you so much, wherever you are.”


She also thanked her children, some of them had also joined her on stage during the show. Her daughter Mercy James, flawlessly delivered the opening notes to “Bad Girl,” and David, who played acoustic guitar for “Mother and Father.” The singer said, “My children are the ones that really helped me pull through, because they worked so hard and… I didn’t want to let them down. So I just set a date and that date became a reality. And I didn’t wanna disappoint my fans. I never do.”

“I want to provocate. I wanna masturbate. But I don’t want to disappoint my fans,” she ended her speech.

The GRAMMY winner was able to start her long-awaited tour at London’s O2 Arena in October 2023.

Madonna’s tour is scheduled to end in April this year with five shows in Mexico City’s Palacio De Los Deportes.
