Madonna and her Rebel Heart tour have made headlines again – this time for exposing a fan’s breast on stage.
Madonna was performing for her long-running tour yesterday in Brisbane when a young fan in the audience caught her eye, and she invited her on stage, The Independent reports.
The footage shows the singer standing next to the young woman, telling the crowd: “She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap on the ass and pull…” before tugging on the girl’s top, which comes all the way down.
Madonna then apologises and says: “Oh shit, I am so sorry, sexual harassment, you can do the same to me if you like.”
And of course, social media went into meltdown:
Madonna is in total meltdown.
She needs to cancel this tour asap. https://t.co/HwPPIpwTNx

Although many have criticised the incident and Madonna, calling it a ‘breakdown’, the fan who had her breast exposed is defending the Queen of Pop, saying it was ‘the best moment of her life’.
She told the Courier-Mail:
Only I get to decide if I’m humiliated or not. Why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body?
It’s hilarious to me how much of a big deal it is to everyone.
Georgiou also confirmed that the stunt wasn’t staged and that she wouldn’t be suing Madonna like people have suggested.
She added: “Seriously, why would I sue Madonna for the best moment of my life? It was the best night. She was calling me a Victoria’s Secret model the whole time I was on stage, which is so flattering.”
I don’t think I’d be complaining, either.
