Madonna Will Not Tolerate Smoking During Her Sound Check: VIDEO


Madonna, oh she who loathes hydrangeas, gave Chilean fans a piece of her mind yesterday when they were smoking during her sound check, something the singer simply will not stand for. She'll even call off the show!

On another note, Madonna's MDNA tour grossed $248 million in 2012, making it the most lucrative tour of the year.

Watch Madonna go after smokers, complete with not-for-work language, AFTER THE JUMP.

  2. hypocrisy!!! she asked same thing in Mexico but there was people selling cigarettes at the concert and she didn't complain about it, because it was part of the profits in the concert

  3. Yes, her tour grossed the most this year (and good for her!) but Springsteen's sold more tickets. And Gaga's did better per capita than Madge's, because her ticket prices are much lower, reflecting that fact she has more young fans than Madge, and those young fans can't sacrifice a year's tuition to buy a good ticket to see Madge.

  4. Oh please.....they are outside in the rain. And besides she smokes, at least in one of her latest videos. Her daughter smokes. Let's face it, she was just in a bitchy mood and wanted to be all high and mighty. Poor attitude.

  6. Friends of mine saw her in Toronto and she was an hour late! Her show was shorter because of her tardiness and then it was over. Not encores. Done. Guess it was past her bedtime.

  7. @ KEATING

    I hope you are not as foolish as your comments. If Springsteen and Gaga could charge as much as Madonna and get away with it -- they would. Concerts are about making money from whoever will give it to you!

    Madonna began her career with nothing. She has earned every single penny she has. Stop being so bitter!

  8. People here are skewering her and demanding refunds. It was raining and cold, and she started the concert a full two and a half hours after it was scheduled, and it lasted only an hour and a half. And talking down to us? wtf is up with that?

  9. "If you love me then don't smoke." Hilarious!

    Well, she smokes in the video for Girl Gone Wild. Her PR people said it was because smoking looks glamorous. Can't her fans look glamorous?

  10. GiGi - her tours always start late, any fan knows that and she never does encores and does not shorten shows. Good for her, smokers suck.

  11. Wow, she's such a see you next tuesday. There are various ways to deal with the smoking thing. That's not one of them. Who knows the personal context, but she certainly seems like an unpleasant person from this clip.

  12. Isaiah, I thought concerts were for making music?

    LOL. You're funny.

  14. Why do people revere her again?

  15. Why do people revere her again?

  16. I don't know why anyone likes this hypocritical cvnt. She's got nerve considering she smokes in one of her latest videos and considering her daughter smokes. And they're outside for crying out loud. What a whiney old hag! And since those people paid hundreds of dollars for a ticket, they have every right to smoke a ciggarette if they damn well please.

    Keep up the diva behaviour Vadge and watch how your record sales flop more than they already are.

  18. How's that Kabbalah working for ya Madge?

  19. @MIKE My friends are all die-hard fans. Admittedly, I'm not. They said the concert was shorter than others. They were not impressed. I'm just relaying information. Personally, I don't care. I would never pay to see her perform.

    Posted by: Gigi | Dec 20, 2012 7:32:37 PM

  20. she's so uptight. and she hasn't released a decent tune in 20 years

  21. I hate smoking and this makes me want to smoke. Entienda?

  22. Thats how an "Ugly American" acts in a foreign country. Just another example of the overpaid pampered American celebs.

  23. wouldn't want the smoke to damage that angelic voice. ha

    Posted by: t | Dec 20, 2012 8:20:04 PM

  24. She is so used to be treated like a rich b1tch, she can’t stand the thought of people near her not trembling in fear once she demands a royal order. Maybe she has a point, smoking affects those close to you, but her ways are of a nasty b1tch.

    Posted by: SayTheTruth | Dec 20, 2012 8:26:28 PM

  25. She gets paid for SINGING!!!! in this economy !!! she's not doing a favor to anyone, it's her job, she should be a LOT more thankfull
