The sweet exchange between the two music legends swiftly went viral, attracting comments like “I love how much they love one another” and “Two queens stand before me…” This was not the first time Beyoncé had publicly appreciated Madonna. Following the release of The Queens Remix of Break My Soul, Beyoncé had sent Madonna a bouquet of white flowers, thanking her for opening doors for so many women in the industry.
Only a month ago, Madonna was in the ICU, battling a serious bacterial infection that postponed her world tour. The health scare shook her friends, family, and fans worldwide. Emerging from the hospital, she expressed gratitude for her survival and thanked her loved ones for their unwavering support on Instagram.
