Country singer Kacey Musgraves declined the opportunity to do a shoey on stage in Sydney last night.
As has become a common request at Australian concerts, audience members urged Kacey to do a shoey. But the Grammy winner had other ideas about the Australian tradition of drinking out of a shoe.
First off, she showed the crowd her platform heels, acknowledging that it wouldn’t work. But then concertgoers offered up their own shoes – and she still said no despite their cheers.
“You could have athlete’s foot or something,” Kacey joked.
After a little consideration and some encouragement from her band, Kacey stood her ground, saying, “That’s disgusting. I’m not f*****g drinking out of your shoe.”
While a vocal minority of fans in the arena were very loudly encouraging her to drink, most weren't really impressed with the idea - and they took to social media to share their thoughts.
Hey, not everyone sees the appeal in drinking out of someone’s dirty shoe!
