Why am I not at all surprised..... Rolling Eyes





A group of smoking fans set Madonna on a fiery rant in Santiago, Chile on Wednesday.

The singer was soundchecking when she noticed that some in the crowd had lit cigarrettes. After suddenly cutting off her performance of "Human Nature," she began berating the crowd.

"There are people smoking right now," she said. "No smoking. If you're going to smoke cigarettes, I'm not doing a show. 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 ... You're looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I'm a stupid f---ing idiot," Madonna said, then stormed off the stage."

According to THR, footage of the incident was posted on YouTube and later deleted.

One might expect Madonna to be in a bit of a better mood: Her MDNA Tour came in at No. 1 on the list of highest-grossing tours for 2012. She performed for over 1.6 million fans and dialed up $228.4 million in sales.

At the Miami stop of the tour, fans began wondering if she would even show up. She did -- only about three hours later than scheduled.

Ah, if only second-hand smoke were as dangerous as they say...

Sounds like a bit of the Diva showing, so its a totally out of proportion reaction, but I agree with her on the substance... assuming its a no smoking venue. If its a free smoking area then she doesn't have a leg to stand on.

How ridiculous. How much smoke has she inhaled from explosions onstage, fog onstage, pot smoke during concerts. 1 guy lights a cigarette and she flips her lid? C'mon.

I doubt they have non smoking venues in Chili, I agree with Monbla, but then again she was always a diva B****.

Monbla for the win. Laughing I liked young, rebellious Madonna, but the finger-wagging nanny Madonna is kind of a drag.... heh... pun intended.

Cool

Desperately seeking attention. Cool

not that ms. m needs anybody to defend her, but i'm willing to bet that her contract stipulates this sort of thing (if you've never seen a performance contract from top-tier performers, they're often pretty entertaining reading). so if the venue wasn't enforcing what they contractually agreed to, that's their problem, and she's completely within her rights to not perform.

for all we know, she probably has other weird constraints in her contract (I remember someone back when had a "no green M&Ms" clause) in there and it's just part of the process.

if you made your living based on your vocal cords*, you might be a PITA about it too.

doody.

* yeah, i know she doesn't - and probably never did - but you know what i mean!

See here for Van Halen's green M&M clause.

I can see their side if this story is true.

Nobody who's slept with Sean Penn should be trusted to tell you what to put in your body.

Madonna: Don't let the door hit you in your bony ass on the way out!
I love almost all music, but those concert goers can consider themselves lucky for an abbreviated show....

Eff Madonna.

Kyle is right, back in the day she was pretty cool! I don't like the older and grouchy Madonna either...
