SECOND UPDATE: CNN reports Madonna has been discharged and is home, recuperating. So in five days she was rushed to the hospital, intubated in the ICU, and now she’s home. Speedy recovery! But her tour is “postponed.”
UPDATE: Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna’s close friends, says the pop queen’s “feeling good” after her bacterial infection scare and hospitalization. (For some reason it took TMZ four days to discover she was even in the hospital. So much for their reputation as ambulance chasers.)
So what’s next for Madonna? Her entire tour has been chucked. My guess is a new tour will be downsized to smaller theaters, which will be easier for her to deal with, and better for promoters selling tickets.
