There once was a woman who didn’t want to drink out of a shoe. But she had so many fans, she didn’t know what to do!

Kacey Musgraves risked insulting her Australian audience Sunday night when she refused to do a “shoey” despite mounting pressure from concert-goers.

As the crowd chanted “Shoey” — Aussie slang for the weird party trick of drinking an entire beer out of one’s footwear — over and over, Musgraves looked out from the stage in confusion, before firmly shutting the request down.

“News flash, that wouldn’t work for me,” the Grammy winner joked, lifting a leg to reveal open-toed stiletto sandals under her floral-patterned pantsuit.

But onlookers, including members of her onstage band, would not let it go.

“Shoey, shoey!” they chanted, as a guy in the pit chivalrously offered his own shoe as a drinking vessel.

Musgraves rolled her eyes, and then pronounced, “I’m not f–king drinking out of your shoe!”

Other American performers, like Post Malone, have given in to the shoey while performing Down Under. And while some fans were disappointed, others showed their support for the strong-willed Musgraves on Twitter.

“I’m so proud of Kacey for not doing the shoey,” one Sydney-based user wrote.

“She stuck it out,” gushed another. “We stan an anti shoey queen.”
