One doesn’t expect a mess from Madonna.
Her stage shows are usually precision-choreographed affairs that depend on the singer being in top form–or “on fleek,” as the kids today say. And Madonna is almost always “on fleek.”
But she’s been acting strangely on stage recently, mostly in Australia, Vanity Fair reports.
She’s been going on and on, tearfully, about missing her teenage son, Rocco, with whom she is in a custody battle with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, whom she reportedly called “a son of a bitch.”
In Melbourne, talking at length to her fans, she was repetitive and aggressive, seemingly drunk.
(Dlisted said that her act seemed to be taking on a “Kiki and Herb” quality, referencing the cult-famous, messy faux-cabaret act of New York performers Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman.)
But Madonna denied reports that she was drunk or high and posted on social media: “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 mysongony which proves that not only do we not get equal pay bUt 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.”
Though obviously not living for spelling. It’s misogyny.
