Santiago, Chile (4E) – Queen of Pop Madonna, in her concert in Chile Wednesday, almost lost it on stage as she threatened to cancel her performance due to smoking fans.
While on the stage during a sound test before the actual show, fans flocked the venue early to watch. The ‘Material Girl’ singer went on with the test despite a heavy downpour.
Upon reaching the edge of the stage near the audience, she immediately saw a number of watchers puffing smoke in the air and suddenly almost lost it.
The 54-year-old singer then spoke on the microphone, “There are people smoking right now. No smoking!”
“If you’re going to smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show,” she continued. “You don’t care about me? I don’t care about you. All right? Are we going to play that game? I’m not kidding. I can’t sing if you smoke. ¿Entiendes?”
Seemingly angered, Madonna added, “You’re looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I’m a stupid f–king idiot.”
The smoking audience then flicked their cigarettes and went on with the test.
The concert went on as scheduled.
