(Video) Madonna Parties in Lisbon for 65th Birthday Like She Was Never Ill: “It’s great to be alive!”


Madonna has made an astonishing comeback after her health scare.

She’s just posted a video from celebrating her 65th birthday in Lisbon, Portugal. What a difference a few weeks make! If she hadn’t gotten ill, Madonna would be a month into her tour this week. Instead, she’s living her best life. She says, “Live in my background.” We do, don’t we? She also says, “It’s great to be alive!”

The rescheduled tour begins in Europe in October, with dates in the US beginning in late November.

PS At the end of the video, son David Banda plays Elton John’s “Your Song” on the piano. Considering the long ago bad blood between Madonna and Elton, that alone is amazing.
