In a video posted to her fans on Instagram, pop star Madonna has just revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.
The 61-year-old singer reportedly revealed this in her “quarantine diaries” series on the social media site, which involves her sitting in a dark room as she narrates out loud what she is writing on a typewriter.
“Took a test the other day. I found out that I have the antibodies so tomorrow, I’m just going to go for a long drive in the car and I’m going to roll down the window and I’m going to breathe in, I’m going to breathe in the COVID-19 air,” Madonna can be heard saying in the clip captioned “Quarantine Diary #14.”
“Here’s the good news. Tomorrow’s another day and I’m going to wake up and I’m going to feel differently,” Madonna added. “Start over again.” She then added the hashtags “#stayhome #staysane” to her post.
This comes a month after Madonna revealed that three people close to her had died of coronavirus, according to Fox News. These people included her cousin, her security guard’s brother, and music executive Orlando Puerto.
“We can’t always have a good day… I didn’t sleep last night, not one minute and today I have been dysfunctional,” she said.
Madonna has been sheltering in place in London, posting bizarre videos filmed in her bathroom throughout quarantine. Last month, she posted a truly strange video in which she claimed COVID-19 might actually be a good thing.
“That’s the thing about COVID-19. It doesn’t care how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equalizer and what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it,” Madonna said in the video that has since been deleted. “What’s terrible about it is that 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.”
“Like I used to say at the end of human nature every night, if the ship goes down, we’re all going down together,” she continued. Madonna might be singing a different tune now after testing positive for the coronavirus.
