You’ve probably heard the saying, “When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do.” Well Kacey Musgraves was faced with that decision over the weekend in Australia and we think she made the right decision! Kacey Musgraves was performing a concert at Sydney’s Enmore Theater when a member of the audience suggested that she do a “shoey” — a local custom where the participant drinks out of someone else’s — presumably foul-smelling — footwear. According to reports, a chant soon began urging her to take the “shoey,” and one helpful member of the crowd even presented their own cowboy boot for the deed.
Musgraves initially tried to laugh off the request with cries of “No way,” calling it “disgusting.” The audience then gave her the option of using a shoe from a band member of her choice. “That’s disgusting,” she said. “I’m not f—ing drinking out of your shoe. You could have athlete’s foot or something.” Some Australian fans were embarrassed that the crowd tried to pressure the Musgraves into the ritual.
