Just when you think pop star Madonna can’t get any more bizarre, she goes and tops herself with another stunt to draw attention to herself.
As the nation reels from the prescribed cure to the Chinese virus, COVID-19, some of our beloved entertainers are going the extra mile to reassure the American people that there is hope for a better tomorrow — people like Neil Diamond.
Then there’s Madonna, the 61-year-old diva who shared a strange video of her sitting in a bathtub talking about how the coronavirus is “the great equalizer.”
Too consumed with floating her fragile ego, the video is all about her.
However, Madonna Louise Ciccone is so accustomed to living a life of luxury — her estimated net worth is around $850 million — that it doesn’t occur to her that sitting in an elegant tub filled with milky bath water and rose petals, surrounded by candles, detracts from the message she’s trying to portray. Whatever that message is.

And keep in mind, that many people are scrambling to find milk for their children as panic buying persists, aiding along by the media over-sensationalizing the pandemic.
“That’s the thing about COVID-19. It doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are,” Madonna says in the Instagram video. “How smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell.”
She goes on to explain, “It’s the great equalizer and what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it. 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.”
But instead of offering hope for tomorrow, Madonna’s message is all about doom and gloom.
“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 proclaims, as if she may have smoke one bowl too many.
Granted, Madonna has made a career of exploiting her body, but someone may want to clue the aging pop star that after sixty years of a lot of wear and tear, that ship may have set sail — although she does prove that the wonders of modern medicine, if you can afford it, are pretty remarkable.
To get a better feel for the layout of her bathroom and all the many accessories that go along with a bath, here is an equally strange video the pop star tweeted a few days ago of herself singing into a hairbrush.

According to Page Six, the recording artist is reportedly “isolating in London with her dancer boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams and daughter Mercy James.”
The comments left on the Instagram post sums things up well, it seems.
“This video is stupid,” one Instagram user responded. “We all know [that] you are in your own rich confinement. You live in other reality Madge. Stop it. With petals on your rich bath, oh my god. Covid19 [makes] distinction cause you can afford your own respiratory machine. Stop trivialize this awful situation please.”
Another said, “Sorry my queen, love u so much, but we’re not equal. We can die from the same diseases, but the poor will suffer the most. Do not romanticize nothing of this tragedy.”
She also shared the video on Twitter, prompting these responses:

Your videos are creepy. Have you always been weird or just loosing your mind after a few days of quarantine? So glad you can waste milk for a bath while I had to wait in line for an hour just to get milk for my toddler. So no, this pandemic has not made us equal
