Madonna: 'I could never do any of my shows high or drunk'
The Queen of Pop has slammed rumours that suggest she was drunk during recent concerts.
Madonna is currently on her Rebel Heart tour and surprised recent crowds in Melbourne after appearing to swig clear liquor from a bottle on stage whilst dressed as a clown and riding a child's tricycle.
She has now addressed the claims in an Instagram post and said they are sexist and misogynistic:
"Thanks for supporting me. Too bad people don't know the art of acting and playing a character. I could never do any of my shows high or drunk. And yes underlying all of this is sexism and misogyny which proves that not only do we not get equal pay but (sic) we are still treated like heretics if we step out of line and think outside the box! Sexism is alive and kicking but I am #livingforlove (sic)."
At the moment, Madonna is dealing with a legal situation after her 15-year-old son Rocco was ordered to return home to New York after refusing to board a flight back from London, where he has been spending time with his filmmaker father. He has yet to return.
