Madonna celebrated her 62nd birthday party in Jamaica. The Queen of Pop shared photos and videos from her party on her social media accounts - including a snap of her holding a plate of marijuana.
Fan reaction was mixed.
Madonna celebrated with her "boyfriend" Ahlamalik Williams and five of her six children. They traveled to Jamaica just a few weeks after Madonna said she had tested positive for the coronavirus.
The "Vogue" singer kindled talk among fans after she shared the photo of her holding a plate of weed and seemed to smoke some, too. Many said it was inappropriate - especially around children. Her children David Banda and Mercy James, are both 14, and twins Estere and Stella, are seven. Eldest daughter Lourdes Leon, 23, was at the party.
Others worried smoking marijuana could harm her voice.
In an Instagram clip the pop superstar is slow dancing with Williams to the song "Never Had a Love Like This Before." The video cuts to Madonna saying "I'm preserving my vocal cords" as Williams offers her a smoke.
Madonna was forced to cancel some of her Madame X world tour shows. The "Like A Virgin" singer canceled several tour dates between November and early March as a result of "indescribable pain" from an unidentified injury.
Other fans said the marijuana pics were just Madonna grabbing attention. A few weeks ago she posted on Instagram a topless selfie. More mixed reactions.
She shared with her more than 15 million Instagram followers a coronavirus conspiracy-theory video from a group called America's Frontline Doctors. Houston-based Dr. Stella Immanuel claims she successfully treated 350 coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine.
The "Material Girl" singer called the doctor her "hero." Instagram flagged the post before taking it down.
Madonna has made other remarks about the coronavirus. In March she said the pandemic was "the great equalizer." Later she said she and her team were exposed to COVID-19 on her Madame X world tour. She also claimed she tested positive for antibodies that supposedly gave her immunity.
