Madonna has reportedly compiled a list of “strict rules” on how she wants her multi-million dollar legacy managed when she dies, following a sudden hospital scare that saw her being sent to ICU

The 64-year-old music icon has been the focus of headlines in recent years, partly due to her unique antics and forever changing appearance.

However, it was her recent admission to a New York ICU that had fans and news outlets worried – especially after it was revealed that she was revived with a NARCAN injection.

Madonna had been set to embark on her highly anticipated Celebration Tour in Vancouver on July 15 – which would have seen her perform her most iconic hits from 1983 to now in 53 shows across North America and Europe – but was forced to postpone it after she was rushed to hospital with a bacterial infection.

The Vogue singer’s tour manager Gary Oseary took to Instagram last Wednesday (June 28) to announce the decision to pause the tour, writing: “On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in ICU.”

He continued: “Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected. At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and rescheduled shows.”

Initial reports revealed Madonna had been found unresponsive on Saturday, June 24, and was subsequently to a New York City hospital where she was intubated. It was eventually revealed that medics were forced to revive the singer with a NARCAN injection once they arrived on the scene.

The injection is typically used in instances of a known or suspected opioid overdose, where symptoms can include unusual sleepiness or difficulty waking up, breaking problems, and a slow heartbeat. Administering a NARCAN injection does not always mean a patient has suffered an opioid overdose, however, and it is often used to reverse the effects of septic shock, per Medline Plus.

Madonna broke her silence on the shock incident on Monday (July 10) with a lengthy Instagram post that revealed she was focusing on getting strong enough to begin the European leg of her tour in October.

She also wrote that her “first thought” when she woke up was her children – Lourdes Leon, 26 (whom she shares with ex Carlos Leon), Rocco, 22 (with ex-husband Guy Ritchie), David Banda and Mercy James, both 17, and twins Stella and Estere, 10.

Following her near-death experience, The Sun reported that the singer has ensured the protection of her $850m legacy – apparently setting up “strict rules” that dictate what record labels and music executives will and won’t be able to do after she eventually passes.

In fact, Madonna is surprisingly specifically against the use of holograms – something that, aside from ABBA’s Voyage tour, has been widely criticized by concert goers. Holograms have been used in the past for the shows of musicians like Whitney Houston… But they’re rarely received well.

According to the outlet, Madonna will also allegedly share the rights to her music equally between her six children, as well as her long-term manager Oseary. Music royalties are especially lucrative, and can provide thousands of dollars of income to those who are gifted the rights.

As for Madonna’s recent health scare, let’s hope she takes enough time to rest up before she embarks on her tour.
