#2672: Madonna Ciccone

A.k.a. Madonna


Celebrity loons are boring stuff, but some of them may conceivably have some influence, so we feel obliged to write up at least some of them, like Madonna. Madonna is an avid member of the Kabbalah Center and served as a sort of spokesperson for the cult (it’s a cult), most notably for the center’s range of woo products such as its Kabbalah water. Kabbalah water is cheap Canadian mineral water that members of the cult meditates over to make it “dynamic, living, fractal and crystalline” (the “Kabbalistic blessings and meditations that are used to create Kabbalah Water, for example, bring about elegant and balanced crystalline structures in water, while negative consciousness has an opposite effect;” apparently this is “hugely important,” for “[i]n a very literal way, Kabbalah Water is life’s original blueprint information brought into the modern world”), and then sells at a steep price to stupid celebrities and people in difficult situations. Oh, but they explain what it’s about: a process called “Quantum Resonance Technology” supposedly “restructures the intermolecular binding of spring water” and makes it able to cure disease and perform magic tricks. Yes, it’s quantum woo, and you don’t need to know much about quantum physics, or physics in general, to recognize the scam for what it is. But plenty of people, like Madonna, don’t, of course.


So Madonna has supposedly paid close to $10,000 to get Kabbalah water into the central heating system of her mansion, and she has indeed claimed that the nonsense water can solve radiation problems – she and Guy Ritchie (another cult member) has been actively lobbying the government and nuclear industry over a scheme to clean up radioactive waste with the supposedly magical water, claiming without a shred of support that it has proved successful in neutralising dangerous nuclear waste at Chernobyl. And the purported science behind it? “Kabbalah water is an excellent information transmitter. Positive, health-giving information is defined by symmetry and high energy, while low energy and entropy – like static in TV or radio reception –characterize muddled information. Therefore, the condition of the water we take into our bodies determines the quality of the information being transmitted to our immune system, digestive system, circulatory system, and even to every atom of our bodies.” Note how much weight is carried by that random insertion of a “therefore”. And it would probably not be very interesting to hear Madonna try to explain why you want your information to be symmetric. It’s nonsense to make even Masaru Emoto blush.


More recently, Madonna has ventured into Covid conspiracy promotion, for instance by posting a video pushing misinformation about the virus and hydroxychloroquine and claiming that a vaccine for the virus had been developed but was being withheld to “let the rich get richer.” “The truth will set us all Free! But some people don’t want to hear the truth,” said Madonna, oblivious to the irony in that statement. The video, which also featured testimony from Stella Immanuel, was retweeted by then-President Donald Trump.


Diagnosis: There are few things more repugnant than celebrity loons. Madonna is a repugnant person, a rotten human being, and her obvious lack of intellect is, frankly, no excuse.


  1. I had no idea Madonna was this nutso.
    I guess most of the media has been ignoring her now for years.

  2. Sorry to hear that about Guy Ritchie. I have always enjoyed his movies.

  3. I didn't realize all that about Madonna. I've only ever paid attention to her music, which I happen to like.
