Madonna Posts First Selfie, Breaks Silence After Spotted Out and About Following Health Crisis

The Queen of Pop thanks everyone for the outpouring love and support while assuring her loyal devotees that she is on the mend and focuses on 'getting stronger.'

AceShowbiz - Madonna assures fans she is on the "road to recovery." The Queen of Pop, 64, has been recuperating at her New York home after she was last month hospitalised - sparking the cancellation of her "Celebration Tour" - and came forward on Monday, July 10 to say she is getting back on her feet and to thank fans for their support.

"Thank you for your positive energy, Prayers and words of healing and encouragement. I have felt your love. I'm on the road to recovery and incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life. My first thought when I woke up in the hospital was my children," she said on her Instagram.

"My second thought was that I did not want to disappoint anyone who bought tickets for my tour. I also didn't want to let down the people who worked tirelessly with me over the last few months to create my show. I hate to disappoint anyone. My focus now is my health and getting stronger and I assure you, I'll be back with you as soon as I can!"

Madonna was spotted earlier on Monday in the Upper East Side of New York walking with a friend in a hat and sunglasses, and was seen leaning on a lamppost in a TikTok video by podcaster Lauren Conlin and pictures obtained by Page Six.

She had been found "unresponsive" towards the end of June, and insiders later claimed to RadarOnline she was treated with a shot that is often used to reverse the effects of a drug overdose.

But the outlet went on to insist there was nothing to suggest that the "Like a Virgin" hitmaker had been using drugs and that the treatment is also used to "reverse acute septic shock in patients," which is thought to have been the cause of her collapse.

An insider told Us Weekly about mum-of-six Madonna's recovery, "Although Madonna is looking forward to getting back to work as soon as possible, she's also taking her recovery seriously and isn't going to rush anything because she is focused on her health above all else. She has an incredible support system around her and appreciates all the love she's received. It's a work in progress but she's feeling confident and better every day."

Madonna's manager Guy Oseary was the first to break the news of her health condition, and he took to Instagram on June 28 to explain to fans that all commitments would be "paused" for the foreseeable future.

He said, "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."

"At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows."
