In case you didn’t know, Jose Cuervo is the official sponsor of Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour. Considering the Queen of Pop has been a trendsetter since the ‘80s, it makes total sense that the tequila brand would want to be connected with her. In fact, Jose Cuervo has long been a supporter of strong women and widely publicize that their original Tradicional tequila has had some iconic fans, like Frieda Kahlo and Janis Joplin. Obviously, when a wild child like Madonna pairs up with a tequila brand, onstage hijinks are bound to happen.
The duo finished up the first half of the star’s tour in San Diego last night at the Valley View Casino Center. The show started out pretty fantastic, with Madonna being lowered to the stage in a steel cage, and kept up its fast pace. Burning through such hits as Vogue and Like a Virgin, the singer took a little break during a lively mashup of La Isla Bonita and Dress You Up to take a shot of the 100 percent blue agave silver tequila.
The drinking may have had something to do with the silly moment later in the show when, after failing to catch her maraca, one of her dashing dancers had to lay across her knee for 30 spanks. Obviously, Madonna has a very difficult job.
The next stop on the Rebel Heart tour is a sold out show in Köln, Germany on November 4.
