Madonna, Queen of Pop™, is longing to confess on a dance floor once again.
If you weren’t following along for the (bumpy) ride that was the Madame X Tour beginning last year, the artist formerly known as M-Dolla sustained numerous injuries while performing her show across the world, carrying on as best she could all the way up until early March, when the final dates were scrapped amid the pandemic.
The resulting injuries, thought to be specifically affecting her knees and hips, forced her to undergo at least one regenerative treatment and walk with a cane and crutches for weeks.
“Finally going to get my regenerative treatment for my missing cartilage!! I would be jumping up and down if i could after 8 months of being in pain. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Wish me Luck! 🙏🏼,” she announced on her Instagram back in May.
Always one to keep her sugar raw, she’s also been doing some at-home rehabilitating, Madonna style, with the help of her equally flexible boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams holding tight.
But on Monday (July 27), following the announcement of the Confessions on a Dua Floor “Levitating” collaboration coming in August with Dua Lipa, The Blessed Madonna and Missy Elliott, Our Lady MDNA shared a moment of vulnerability on social media and waxed nostalgic about a time not long ago when she was sturdier on her feet.
“This video gives me hope that not only will I be walking without crutches one day soon but also Dancing and Roller Skating Again!! I Miss being the Dancing Queen !! 💃💃💃 Having the time of my life!! 🙏🏼 #positivethinking #mindovermatter,” Madonna hopefully wrote on Instagram, along with a fan edit of the “Sorry” music video set to ABBA‘s “Dancing Queen” – a rare reminder that Madonna is, somehow, only human.
Let us send all the healing vibes to our beloved Madonna to keep the fighting spirit so that she may rebound quickly and stronger than ever, and then reunite with Stuart Price after the inevitable success of the “Levitating” remix, and then come up with a little Confessions in an Upper East Side Mansion Amid Quarantine at home to get us all through these uncertain times.
You got this, M.
