Madonna has revealed she had to be "dragged" to the hospital when she fell ill with a serious bacterial infection in June.
During her Celebration Tour concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday, the Vogue singer revealed there was "a very important woman" in the crowd who saved her life by taking her to the hospital when she collapsed on her bathroom floor.
"There are some very important people in the room tonight that were with me at the hospital. There's one very important woman who dragged me to the hospital," she said, according to a video on social media. "I don't even remember; I passed out on my bathroom floor and woke up in the ICU."
According to the Madonna Nation fan account, Madonna gave a shout-out to her friend Shavawn and added, "She saved my life."
The Queen of Pop also revealed that she was in an induced coma for 48 hours and "the only voice (she) heard" during this time was her Kabbalah teacher's.
The 65-year-old told the crowd it was a "f**king miracle" she was back on tour following her hospitalisation and then made light of the situation by joking that she "had to almost die" to get all six of her children "in one room" together.
Madonna's manager Guy Oseary announced in June that she had to postpone the start of her world tour after spending several days in intensive care with a serious bacterial infection. The trek eventually kicked off in London in October.
Madonna has six children - Lourdes, 27, Rocco, 23, David, 18, Mercy, 17, and Stella and Estere, 11.
