Madonna recently denied that she was drunk or high during any of her shows in response to reports of strange behavior and drinking at some of her concerts in Australia (video below).
The pop singer wrote on Instagram on March 13:
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.
During her free "Tears of a Clown" show in Melbourne, Australia on March 10, Madonna gave a sad speech about her 15-year-old son Rocco disappearing, and had his childhood photo projected on stage, reported The Sun.
There is currently a custody fight for the boy between the singer and her ex-husband, Guy Richie, in London’s High Court.
During her show in Melbourne on March 12, the 57-year-old singer "swigged tequila," noted The Sun, and told the audience, "Someone please f--- me."
At another part in the show, she reportedly drank from a fan's flask and said, “Somebody take care of me, please. Who is going to take care of me?”
An unidentified source told the newspaper, “Being cut out of Rocco’s life has hit Madonna hard and it’s clear she blames Guy."
“She has openly called him a d---head, and a son of a b----, and said that she is going to make him pay ‘big time’ for what he has done to her,” the source added.
An unidentified insider told Radar Online, “Madonna seems to like her anti-psych meds,” and alleged that she takes Clonazepam, a prescription medication for panic disorders.
“She doesn’t listen to anyone,” the insider added.
The source said that Madonna recently fired her kids’ security guards and her personal assistant, and “threw a fit” when Live Nation, a concert promotion company, fined her for late concert starts during her current Rebel Heart world tour.
