‘That’s disgusting!’ Country star Kacey Musgraves is left furious after fans encourage her to ‘do a shoey’ at her Sydney concert

U.S. country music star Kacey Musgraves recently admitted she was deadly afraid of encountering a huntsman spider while touring Down Under. 

But it was the Australian public that left Kacey disgusted during her concert in Sydney on Sunday night, not the wildlife.

The Space Cowboy hitmaker, 30, was offended when fans at The Enmore Theatre urged her do ‘do a shoey’ on stage, News.com.au reported.

To ‘do a shoey’ in Australian slang means to drink alcohol – usually beer – out of a person’s shoe.

‘That’s disgusting. I’m not f**king drinking out of your shoe,’ Kacey responded to the concertgoers’ chant. 

The 30-year-old Texan, who recently won Album of the Year at the Grammys, went on with her performance despite the cringeworthy moment.

But fans of the singer-songwriter expressed their outrage on Twitter over the low brow display of Australian culture.

‘I thought Kacey Musgraves was a shoey-free space – I was wrong,’ one person wrote.

‘Kacey refused a shoey because doing a shoey is the dumbest thing,’ another added.

Earlier this month, U.S. rapper Post Malone indulged fans by drinking from a sneaker at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.

He repeated the stunt later on in his Australian tour, while the crowd chanted the words to the popular drinking song ‘True Blue’.

Meanwhile, Kasey told The Sunday Project over the weekend that she struggles to understand her meteoric rise to fame.

When asked about winning four Grammys this year, the High Horse star responded with self-deprecating humour.

‘What human is equipped with the emotions to know what to do with that kind of situation?’ she said.

‘I thought it was ludicrous that I was even in that category to begin with – I mean, not ludicrous, I’m proud and I love my album so much – but you know [the other nominees’] records are massive, they sell a tonne, they get played on the radio a lot.’
