During her concert in Melbourne, Madonna’s emotional performance went beyond her usual balance of sincerity and curation and barreled into a full-on breakdown. Madonna got intensely tequila drunk from a flask she brought on stage while rambling about her ex-husband Guy Ritchie and their custody war over their 17-year-old son Rocco.
The most vulnerable (and likely drunk) moments involved her calling Guy Ritchie a “son of a bitch,” asking audience members if someone would “please fuck me,” and subsequently asking who would take care of her.
The drunken spiral included her tumbling off a child’s tricycle in the middle of the stage, all in her tiny corset and top-hat. After the fall she joked to the audience that she “messed up,” and it was almost like “that was in her DNA.” While we don’t have many words of praise for her performance, at least at that moment, what we can definitely praise is her waist, and by the looks of it, it seems that she was on this website.
Even amidst her drunk-girl moments Madonna was still able to effectively dedicate a song to her 15-year-old Rocco, after all — this isn’t her first rodeo. All of us have those dark drunk nights, she just happens to have an audience.
