Madonna directs rant at smoking fans in Chile


Madonna threatened to cancel her show in Chile on Wednesday after catching fans smoking cigarettes in front of the stage during a soundcheck.

Bing: Madonna's tour was the highest-grossing of 2012

Madonna hit the stage during a rain shower in Santiago to test the sound equipment at the Estadio Nacional stadium, and fans flocked to the venue early to catch the singer go through her routines. But as Madonna reached the front of her stage's runway into the audience, she spotted a number of people smoking and lashed out at them in an angry tirade.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the star said into her microphone, "People are smoking right now, no smoking! Where are they smoking? If you're going to smoke I am not doing the show. ... If you don't care about me, I don't care about you. All right, we gonna play that game? I'm not kidding. I can't sing if you smoke. Entiende [understand]? If you love me then don't smoke ... You're looking at me while you're still smoking, like I'm a stupid f------ idiot." The singer then stormed offstage.

Madonna's concert went ahead as planned, despite her earlier comments.

What about diversity? Chileans who smoke are people too. They have no choice but to smoke. Aren't they too the victims of poverty and low self esteem caused by European colonialism? I think that what Madonna really meant to say was that she was going to let them into her *% !#%!?$  show free of charge and buy them each a house--built beneath non-deforested land--as well as a case of Cuban cigars. This is just a simple misunderstanding.

i'm not a madonna fan at all but i agree with her here~smokers are some of the most INCONSIDERATE PEOPLE~they don't care about themselves, why would you believe that they would care about you?

Madonna is so 20 years ago.  Your time in the spotlight is up sweetie....Plus, last time I checked...people in their teens and early 20s wear cheerleading outfits.  Look in the mirror, yes...that is really you.  Not someone playing a sick joke and replacing your face with a skeleton.  RIP Madonna.

I side with Madonna. I am several allergic to smoke and second and third hand smoke give me headaches for days. Good for you Madonna. :) My first love passed away awaiting a lung transplant from cystic fibrosis. If there weren't so many smokers, maybe he could have had a match. Think that about that. Don't be selfish.
