Pop star Sky Ferreira was desperate to leave Russia following her gig there this week (beg02Jun14) after a group of locals allegedly groped her and hurled homophobic abuse at her friends.

The singer was in Moscow for a show at the city's Izvestia Hall on Tuesday night (03Jun14), and after taking to the stage, Ferreira visited a bar with pals.

However, the night ended on a sour note with the 22 year old taking to Instagram.com to upload a snap of herself drinking cocktails with a long-haired male companion alongside the caption, "10 seconds before we got harassed by straight up Fools."

On Wednesday (04Jun14), she tweeted: "I've been groped, we've been called 'f**gots'. I'm officially ready to go home."

The star then flew to Madrid, Spain and will head to Portugal for a festival appearance on Friday (06Jun14).
