Madge denied she was drunk at her Louisville show during the ‘Rebel Heart’ concert in Nashville, which she also started almost three hours late.
Madonna keeps denying reports that she was drunk at a Louisville concert which she started three hours late last weekend. When her “Rebel Heart” tour stopped in Nashville on Monday night, January 18, the singer made fun of the allegation in front of the crowd after once again showing up onstage late.
“If I sit down and start talking to you guys, I may never get up. And this is me sober,” she said as many people in the audience cheered. “I know there’s been reports of me falling down drunk on the stage. Y’all wish I could dance in six inch hills and be drunk.”
Previously, Madonna reportedly angered concertgoers at the Louisville show after she dropped some slurs and forgot her own lyrics when she finally appeared on the stage. Apparently responding to the claims, the star wrote on Instagram, “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.”
Later on Monday, Madonna reportedly came out on the stage in Nashville almost three hours late again. Reba McEntire who happened to be among people in attendance complained about Madge’s tardiness in some Instagram posts.
“At the Madonna concert. She’s not on yet…really???” the country star wrote alongside a photo taken inside the Bridgestone Arena where the concert took place. She added in a couple of follow-up posts, “We’re here!! Where is she??? She came on at 10:31.”
