Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines for October 21 are here.

Following the incident, Rogers posted a statement on social media - simply captioning it "take your top off". Rogers broke down why this was so upsetting, for those in the back who still don't get it.

But her words about "gratitude and growth and change" were interrupted by two men - one who shouted "take your top off", while another chimed, "you cute though".

On Saturday night, October 19, Maggie Rogers was on stage at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on the penultimte show of her Heard It in a Past Life tour.

She continued: "i was stunned".

Rogers explained that right before she plays the final song of the encore - an acoustic version of her breakout track "Alaska" - she speaks to the crowd in a moment of vulnerability. "Furious. Fuming. Confused. And also - on a really basic level - it really hurt my feelings".

The outburst from the audience members violated the "safe space" she creates in her concerts, she told fans. There's a deep amount of trust there.

The singer concluded her lengthy statement on the matter with a warning to anyone that may try to be inappropriate at a show of hers in the future.

The 25-year-old reaffirmed the fact she's a person worthy of respect, let alone an artist courageous enough to share a "vulnerable" expression of her work.

"I want to use this moment to be very, very clear", she added. "Be kind to each other out there".
