Teenage Girl Whose Breast Was Exposed On Stage By Madonna Defends The Singer

Josephine, 17, said: "Only I get to decide if I’m humiliated or not. Why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple, or body?"

As we all know, Madonna has made quite a name for herself over the years for her controversial behaviour and performances.

And her latest tour has been no different. She caused outrage yet again on Thursday night when she performed in Brisbane, Australia, and decided to pull down a female fan’s top onstage.

Madonna stood next to 17-year-old Josephine Georgiou and told the crowd, "She's the kind of girl you want to slap on the arse", before pulling her top down and exposing her bare breast.

The pop star then apologised and joked "sorry, sexual harassment."

Madonna also told Josephine she could do the same back to her.

Videos of the moment spread quickly online and were met with a lot of criticism and outrage.

what Madonna did to that girl wus disgusting.. id of punched her face! #thismorning

What @Madonna did to that girl in Brisbane is disgusting. What makes her think she had the right? To a minor as well. Shame on her.

What Madonna did was disgusting and if it was a man that did that they'd be prosecuted so why should she get away with it?

What is wrong with @Madonna she has lost the plot. She needs to retire now in case she sexually harasses any other teenagers! #disgusting

But Josephine, who is a barista and aspiring model according to the Courier-Mail, has now spoken out to defend Madonna over the incident.

She told the Courier-Mail:

Seriously, why would I sue Madonna for the best moment of my life? It was the best night. She was calling me a Victoria's Secret model the whole time I was on stage, which is so flattering. Only I get to decide if I'm humiliated or not, why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body?

It's hilarious to me how much of a big deal it is to everyone, people just need to understand I was on stage in front of Madonna, I was looking her in the eyes and most people would just melt into a pool on stage, so it was only because I was standing in front of her that I looked so surprised.
