Madonna hit the headlines again this week after exposing the breast of a 17-year-old fan during a concert in Australia. A video of Madonna pulling down Josephine Georgiou's strapless top after inviting her up on stage in Brisbane has gone viral and made news around the globe – but the girl at the centre of the media storm has said she will not be suing the singer. "Seriously, why would I sue Madonna for the best moment of my life?" she told the Courier-Mail. "It was the best night."

"She called me a Victoria's Secret model the whole time I was on stage, which is so flattering," Josephine said she had been wearing her mother's corset, which was too big, and she had been adjusting it on stage while Madonna was talking to the crowd. 

"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?" the aspiring model added. "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."

This latest incident comes just days after Madonna was forced to dispel reports that she was intoxicated during her show in Melbourne. A spokesperson said that the venue had opened later than expected and that the star "was not drunk, and as promised, she had one cosmo on stage. Nothing more. Nothing less." 

Madonna is continuing on with the Australian leg of her Rebel Heart world tour amid her ongoing custody battle with ex–husband Guy Ritchie regarding their 15-year-old son Rocco. She was not present for the most recent hearing, which took place at London's High Court on 11 March.
