Miu, if you’re reading this – don’t. Madonna reportedly demanded a bottle of vodka prior to the opening night of her UK tour, to clean sweat stains from her costumes. Apparently, this is a secret that she learned from a friend who is an opera singer. That has got to be some cruel and unusual punishment for a perfectly good bottle of vodka. I hope it was Smirnoff and not Belvedere.
A show insider says, “Everyone was surprised when we were told it was to wash her clothes.
Apparently it’s sprayed over perspiration marks. The alcohol kills off bacteria and keeps the stage clothes fresher. It’s a trick they use in the opera because the big divas perspire such a lot on stage.”
