Madonna Storms Off Stage In Santiago After Crowd Members Start Smoking
Madonna really isn't a fan of smoking, and some of her fans in Santiago, Chile, had to find this out the hard way after she directed a foul-mouthed rant at a small group of smokers during her show, The Hollywood Reporter has said.
On a rain-filled Wednesday (Dec 19) evening on the stage at the open-air Estadio Nacional, Madge really wasn't having the best of days to begin with after a white umbrella she was shielding herself with inverted, drawing big laughs from the crowd. Unimpressed by this and the reaction, the singer wrapped herself in a Jedi-like hooded black coat and abruptly stopped midway through her performance of 'Human Nature.'
That wasn't it for the singer though, as things clearly weren't going right for her, when she clocked some people smoking in the open-air arena where smoking is permitted (as it is in most public places in Chile). An angry Madge yelled at the group, "There are people smoking right now. 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."
Wow! Well, the Spanish-speaking crowd clearly didn't want to give into her demand and shortly after the singer stormed off stage, possibly to smoke a cigarette and relieve the stress.
