What? Madonna threatened to cancel her concert over smoking fans? Well somebody’s got her panties in a twist.
The story’s very much true though – the legendary artiste was in Santiago to put up a show. While she was in the middle of sound check, she noticed that there was smoke in the air. Madonna later found out that it came from her fans who were smoking in the open-air theater. But the best part was perhaps the way she lashed out at her devoted fans while she was performing “Human Nature”.
“There are people smoking right now! If you’re gonna smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show. You don’t care about me, I don’t care about you. Alright?”, she apparently yelled. And when her fans didn’t care, she went on to say yell, “Are you going to play that game? I’m not kidding. I can’t sing if you smoke, entiendes?”
(Note: “Entiendes?” means “Understand?” in Spanish)
A bunch of fans then responded by shouting, “We love you!” but Madonna showed no mercy. She then replied, “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.”
Uh, and then she walked off stage, leaving her loyal fans in the rain. She came back after awhile (we assume, after she cooled off a little bit) but still..
Cool story, Madge.
