Madonna: 'I never drink and perform!!!'

Reports in the press stated that 'some' of the audience at the Louisville concert on Saturday thought that Madonna was drunk. She posted this message and picture on her Instagram page:

'Working on my stand up laying down. Good practice!!! 👍🏻Thanks Louisville! 😂 the tears of a clown soon to follow the ❤️ #rebelheartour and 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.'

You know what Madonna should do? If the opening act is slated for 8pm, she should come on no more than 30 minutes after the opening 9:30. She should do the show, not interact with the audience, and then leave.

After that, watch the pendulum totally swing the other way: she started earlier than I thought, she didn't interact with the audience, just did her stuff and left, wah wah wah. Then she could come out and say no matter what I do, I cannot win. But everyone knows she would not perform drunk on a show, they are just too technical to be half lit.

I will say, though, that if the reports are true that she didn't come on in Nashville until 10:30, that's pretty bad, even for her. I mean that's really late.


These stories are ridiculous. I watched a couple of the clips and in no way does she sound or act drunk. 2 days till Atlanta!!!!! Woo hoo!!!!!


Love her!! Bang on!


I've been to 5 different Madonna concerts and from my experience the shows are tight and timed. In Louisville she was much more engaging with audience. Chatted more than I've seen before and she seamed looser and relaxed. The stagging and costumes were always. And she performed a great balance of old and new songs. Great to see Deeper and Deeper performed. And La vie en rose was beautiful! I had a great time.
