The “Like a Virgin” singer was immediately rushed to the hospital by her husband, filmmaker Guy Ritchie. She was treated for her injuries, which included three cracked ribs, a broken collarbone, and a broken hand. While she was able to walk and talk, her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, stated that Madonna was unlikely to be “hanging from a disco ball” anytime soon, referring to her energetic stage performances.

Despite the setback, Madonna remained determined to continue her musical journey. Her album Confessions on a Dancefloor, described as “future disco” music, was scheduled for release in November 2005, just a few months after the accident.
