Aging Popstar Madonna Claims Coronavirus Is Wonderful In A Naked Bathtub Video
The “Material Girl” singer, Madonna posted a bizarre social media video claiming that coronavirus could be wonderful because it serves as an “equalizer” of all mankind while soaking in her expensive milk and rose petal-filled bathtub.
On Sunday, Madonna sat naked on her tub as she weighed in on both the “wonderful” and “terrible” things about the coronavirus pandemic. In her poetic speech, Madonna began by saying that the virus does not care about anyone’s social status, how much wealth they had, how famous they might be. She added that it does not discriminate based on someone’s age or their personal experiences. “It’s a great equalizer,” the pop star said.
She continued, “And what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it. What’s terrible about it is it’s made us all equal in many ways. And what’s wonderful about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways.” As she lavishly soaked in her expensive tub, undisturbed by thousands of Americans who had been economically affected by the pandemic, Madonna went on to conclude that “we are all in the same boat” and believing that “if the ship goes down, we’re all going down together.” She then captioned her video against age discrimination.
Social media pundits were quick to react. One social media user noted that Madonna resembled the girl from the Japanese horror film, the ring.
You are slowly transforming into a Japanese horror film right before our eyes. I feel like your two videos away from actually becoming the girl in the ring— beth, also a national crisis (@bourgeoisalien) March 22, 2020
Some also remarked about the huge disconnect between Madonna and her claim to equality.
Wendy wrote that Madonna and other stars who seemed to have “everything” might not have enough “emotional competency” to stay at home.
Who would have thought that the people who supposedly possess “everything” the world can offer would lack the emotional competency to get through a week at home. 🙄🙄🙄 #gethelp #JesusSaves #Jesusisyourhope— Wendy A. Williams (@wenswms) March 22, 2020
Others clamored that instead of making poetic (and sometimes pointless) social media videos, Hollywood stars should also help the country by contributing to the medical supplies that health facilities need, while others trolled her.
Girl if you don't get off social media drop some money to aiding medical professionals right now! They need equipment and beds and masks and ventilators. No body cares about yr rich old white lady milk bath and I say this a die hard fan.— Ruth Nineke (@RuthNineke) March 22, 2020
One GOP supporter shared an unglamorous picture of him sitting on the toilet to show the huge gap between Madonna and what normal people usually have.
Madonna’s seemingly philosophical post came after she received massive backlash for proudly posting her infamous “fried fish” footage. As countless bored celebrities made their own quarantine-style video, the aging pop star joined in the fun, sharing a clip of her singing an off-key version of her hit single “Vogue.”
“Let’s go eat some fried fish. Fried Fish! Come on, vogue – I mean go! Let’s go eat some fried fish. Fried fish! ‘Cause there’s no more pasta, oh no! We’re gonna eat some fried fish! Fried fish! Yeah!” Madonna sang. Oblivious to the thousands of people trying to get hold of supplies and food, the star wrote on the caption: “Living in Special Times…………thank GOD for imagination and fried fish!”
