The pop icon has been frequently sharing her bizarre “Quarantine Diaries,” which show her sitting by a typewriter late at night, muttering about her physical and emotional angst. In one video, she sat naked in a bathtub and called coronavirus “the great equalizer,” but it was later deleted after she received a flood of negative attention for it.
“I know, I know,” O’Donnell agreed when Page Six brought up the odd videos. “With the typing, sitting in the bathtub, reading poetry naked. I don’t get it, but she’s an artist in her own category and I think she does what she does and she doesn’t care who thinks what.”
The “View” alum, 58, says that when she chats with her longtime friend, they don’t usually discuss Madonna’s social media postings, but “she’s an artist and that’s the only place she has to create right now.”
O’Donnell added that the “Holiday” singer is quarantining with her “young lover and she’s happy. She’s got all of her kids except Rocco there and I think that brings her tremendous comfort, but I agree [the videos] are a little weird.”
Madonna, 56, has been linked to 26-year-old dancer Ahlamalik Williams since last year. She has six kids.
Meanwhile, O’Donnell, who currently appears in HBO’s “I Know This Much Is True,” has been quarantining at her weekend home in New Jersey. She told us she was recently terrified when she had to leave for the first time in two months for a doctor’s appointment in New York City.
O’Donnell and Madonna met on the set of their 1992 film “A League of Their Own” and immediately bonded because they had both lost their mothers as children. They have remained close friends.
