Madonna Reflects on ‘Miraculous Recovery’ on Anniversary of Hospitalization: ‘Life Is Beautiful’

Madonna is reflecting on her growth since the health scare last summer that led to the Queen of Pop being induced into a coma for 48 hours in the ICU.

”Happy 4th of July,” the superstar wrote alongside a series of gorgeous selfies and snaps from her glitzy NYC celebration with friends. For the festivities, Madonna opted for a silky red gown, paired with matching fingerless gloves and layers of silver jewelry.

”A year ago today, I had just come home from the hospital after surviving a life threatening illness, I could barely stand in my backyard holding one sparkler,” she continued in the caption. “I made a miraculous recovery and had an amazing year. Thank you God. Life is beautiful!”

In June of 2023, Madonna spent several days in the hospital due to a bacterial infection. The hospitalization forced the star to put her massive, career-spanning Celebration tour on pause, though the rescheduled dates began in the fall and continued through the spring earlier this year.

Madonna released her first statement after her hospitalization in July, thanking fans for their positive energy and assuring that she’s feeling better. “I have felt your love. I’m on the road to recovery and incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life,” wrote the singer.

The six-month Celebration Tour closed with $225.4 million and 1.1 million tickets sold over 80 shows, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

The Celebration Tour is Madonna’s sixth trek to gross more than $100 million. The only other acts to achieve this are the EaglesThe Rolling StonesBruce Springsteen and U2, making her the sole woman in this elite group.
