The singer has hit back at fans after being booed for arriving on stage over an hour late.

Madonna has rebuffed fans who complained after the star arrived an hour late on stage for a gig in Manchester.

The singer warned fans that if they were unhappy, that they should “shut the f**k up” and stay away from her shows in the future.

“If you diva bitches want to keep complaining about it, then don’t come to my show,” she said – after ‘technical problems’ delayed her arrival.

“I’m not back there eating chocolate and filing my nails and getting my extensions done, all right?”

Her comments came after attendees criticised Madonna on social media following the gig – claiming there was no explanation given for the delay.

“Over 50 mins late at Manchester Arena and no announcements. Not acceptable. People have jobs to go to @Madonna,” tweeted one angry fan.

However, the singer was quick to put fans in their place.

“Tonight, our video crashed, and we had no video, and our backup file was – I don’t know – it was compromised, put it like that…”

“So praise the Lord and thank you God, but that is why we are late, all right? For no selfish diva-bitch reason.”

She later elaborated on this, taking to social media to warn people not to “jump to conclusions.”

“FACTS: It’s good to have them before you jump to conclusions! The entire video for my show crashed as I arrived for sound check,” she wrote on Instagram.

“The backup file was corrupt. We had no choice but to reboot and pray for a good outcome.

“The video lights 75% of my show. We can’t play in the dark.”

Madonna is well-known for her gay fanbase and is a strong supporter of LGBT rights.

She recently said that her Rebel Heart tour – which has so far raised nearly $50 million – will not be stopping in Russia.

“I won’t appear in Moscow or St Petersburg anymore, because I don’t want to perform in places where being homosexual is tantamount to a crime,” said the singer.
