A “shoey” is an Australian tradition where one drinks an alcoholic beverage out of a shoe. Kacey Musgraves, who just wrapped up a tour in Australia, made literal headlines earlier this week when she refused to do a shoey at a show in Sydney, saying: “I’m not fucking drinking out of your shoe.” Understandable!
But she acquiesced at her concert in Melbourne, ripping a shot out of a glass slipper. “I guess maybe in Sydney I wasn’t really in the mood, but it’s our last show so…” she said before she downed tequila, amid cheers of “Kacey! Kacey” from the crowd.
