Madonna calls coronavirus 'the great equaliser' in nude bathtub video

Madonna has called coronavirus “the great equaliser” in a sombre nude video taken while she’s in the bath.

The pop icon is seen sitting in a milky bathtub filled with rose petals in the video, while she remarks that the pandemic doesn’t care if you are rich or poor.

“That’s the thing about COVID-19,” she says. “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.”

She continues, “It’s the great equaliser 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 is, is that it’s made us all equal in many ways,” she says.

Madonna then referenced the rendition of her 1995 track “Human Nature” as seen on her recent Madame X tour.

“Like I used to say at the end of ‘Human Nature’ every night, if the ship goes down, we’re all going down together.”

Madonna previously baffled the internet by posting an edited version of her track “Vogue”, also recorded in her bathroom.

In the video, she changed the word “vogue” to “fried fish”.
