An infuriated Madonna threatened to cancel her concert in Chile Wednesday night when she caught a whiff of a fan's second-hand smoke during an outdoor soundcheck.
The smell of smoke wafting up to the stage enraged the 54-year-old singer, who then angrily lectured her fans:
Someone's smoking right now. No smoking. ... 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? Are we going to play that game? I'm not kidding. I can't sing if you smoke. Entiendes? You know what, 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 f***ing idiot.
According to TMZ, the smokers put out their cigarettes and Madonna eventually went on with the concert.
