Madonna has taken to Instagram to post a strange video in which she claims three of her friends have died in the last day. 

The 61-year-old pop icon mumbled her way through a ‘quarantine diary’ on Thursday, in which she also bizarrely takes aim at her own son.

‘I’m over it,’ said the Ray of Light hitmaker at one point in the two minute diatribe.

The wildly overproduced video, which features dozens of cuts and often switches between color and black and white, begins with Madonna sitting at a typewriter in a dark room.

‘Quarantine diary, number nine,’ she says, while typing, before mumbling something unintelligible.

‘We can’t always have a good day,’ continues the singer, whose full name is Madonna Louise Ciccone, before admitting it’s already past midnight as she records. 

She then begins to read what appears to be her own artful prose from the typewriter, including a line about a ‘burning spear’. 

‘The burning spear makes its way into the core of me and slithers down my leg, and I can concentrate on nothing except the idea of a fix, and I wonder what form that will take,’ says the actress-singer-songwriter.

 Madonna then begins to narrate, saying she’s ‘lost three friends in the past 24 hours’.

It’s unclear whether she means they died of coronavirus, however one she mentions, dance music exec Orlando Puerta, did expire from an ‘upper respiratory infection,’ although the results his COVID-19 tests have not yet been revealed.

The other friends mentioned as having died are Madonna’s ‘cousin’ and her ‘security guard’s brother’.

She then takes aim at her son, reading, ‘If my son says I have a broken hip one more time I might implode.’

Madonna has two sons: Rocco Ritchie, 19, and David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie, 14, although it’s unclear which son she’s referring to.

She continues: ‘If someone says you’re broken so many times a day, you do start to feel that way.’

‘This is me right now, okay,’ explains Madonna, ‘This is how I feel every day,’

‘This is how I sleep every night, this is how I take a bath, this is how I exercise,’ she continues, ‘This is how I live right now, in case you were interested.’

Madonna then mumbles her way through the rest of the video, rendering it largely unintelligible. 

There’s more: It’s not the first tone-deaf video released by the Live A Virgin superstar since the coronavirus pandemic began sweeping the globe

It’s not the first tone-deaf video released by the Live A Virgin superstar since the coronavirus pandemic began sweeping the globe. 

Madonna has deemed coronavirus ‘the great equaliser’ in an eccentric video of herself naked in a bathtub.

The singer, 61, uploaded the clip to her Instagram where she sits in the tub filled with petals and voices her thoughts on COVID-19, saying it has made everyone alike.

Speaking pensively about the ongoing pandemic while instrumental music played in the background, Madonna said: ‘That’s the thing about COVID-19. It doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are.

‘How smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equaliser and what’s terrible about is it 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 is, is that it’s made us all equal in many ways.’

Critics have claimed that given her net worth of almost $600million, the pop superstar is far from ‘equal’ to many people who have lost their income due to the virus.
