Trust pop star Madonna to come up with a eyeball-grabbing way of expressing her views about the current Covid-19 pandemic.
"That's the thing about Covid-19," she says from a milky bath filled with rose petals, piano music playing in the background. "It doesn't care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are, how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It's the great equalizer and what's terrible about it is what's great about it."
She went on to say that "what's terrible about it is that it's made us all equal in many ways - and what's wonderful about it is that it's made us all equal in many ways."
Madonna also referenced her 1995 track Human Nature as performed on her recent "Madame X" tour.
"Like I used to say at the end of Human Nature every night, we are all in the same boat," she said. "And if the ship goes down, we're all going down together."
She captioned the video: "No-Discrimination- Covid-19!! #quarantine #covid_19 #staysafe #becreative #brianeno."
