Madonna Almost Cancels Show After Fans Refuse To Butt Out

I guess it’s safe to say that Madonna is anti-smoking.  The superstar singer is in Santiago, Chile and during a sound check for her concert on Wednesday the singer got quite angry after witnessing fans in the open air stadium smoking cigarettes.  According to US Weekly the singer threatened to cancel the show if the fans didn’t butt out;

“There are people smoking right now,” the singer said angrily. “If you’re gonna smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show. You don’t care about me, I don’t care about you. All right?”

When the fans continued to puff away, she added: “Are we going to play that game? I’m not kidding. I can’t sing if you smoke, entiendes?”


After one fan in the audience yelled out ‘We love you’ Madonna responded with ;

“If you love me, then don’t smoke. No smoking! You’re looking right at me while you’re smoking cigarettes, like I’m a stupid f—ing idiot.”

I don’t know what to think about this.  I mean I understand her not liking the smoke, but those people paid a lot of money to be there and if they are allowed to smoke in the venue then I don’t know what else she can do about it.  I saw Madonna in concert in September and I have to admit I was really disappointed. She started almost 3 hours late and didn’t even perform and encore.  I’d say she’s a bit of a diva (but we already knew that, right?) Thoughts?
