Madonna claps back at allegations that she was drunk during her performance in Louisville this weekend.

It’s never a quiet day for the material girl. The latest in a long line of increasingly tired slights being flung at superstar Madonna is that she was intoxicated during her latest performance of her sold out and critically acclaimed Rebel Heart Tour.

TMZ reported that the “Living for Love” star was three hours late for the show, and angered fans by behaving strangely on stage. A quote from a reported concert goer reads, “Madonna was an awesome performer but man she was a bitch! She trashed talked Kentuckians and spoke in a fake hillbilly accent.” TMZ went on to allege that Madonna was drunk.

Taking to Instagram, Madonna cleared up the accusations, name checking TMZ at the same time.


“For those people who like to believe all they read i never drink and perform!!! My show is 2 hours and 15 minutes of non stop singing and dancing. In Louisville I made a joke about doing a stand comedy act dressed as a clown and being able to drink alcohol. Its so very interesting how society continues to not only treat me in a totally sexist way (if i a were a man no one would have said a thing) and also continue to take everything i say literally!Thats what happens when people don’t read books and get all information from TMZ.”

Fighting talk from Madonna. Regardless of any undoubtedly fictionalized reports of Madonna performing drunk, we’d be on board with a Madonna tour featuring stand-up and ballads, a concept that she’s teased so many times now, that we may have to start taking as a serious threat.

What do you think? Are you here for Madonna the cabaret act?
