The next time you’re at a Madonna concert that’s open-air and you’re thinking about enjoying a smoke along with your beer … don’t. Just, don’t. Because she will sniff you out and annihilate you. This qualifies for sound-checks as well, as this latest story from Santiago, Chile proves. Madge is in the country for her show, and during the sound-check, some fans who were milling about amongst the huge crowd in the area, decided to light up. Not for long, because Madonna chewed them out, saying, “There are people smoking right now. No smoking! Where are they smoking? If you’re going to smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show! ” And if that wasn’t enough, she added, ”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?” One would think that, that would be the end. But the fans were probably too stunned to even react. So Queen M, with the final nail in their coffin, hammered out, “If you love me, then don’t smoke. No smoking! You’re looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I’m a stupid f—g idiot.” Point made. The fans stubbed out their cigs and Madonna continued. Lesson learned! TMZ even has a video of the incident and really, you do not want to mess with this woman.
