Second Worker Dies -- Madonna Breaks Down

7/17/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna took a moment during her concert in Italy last night to pay tribute to the two men who died constructing her stage in France earlier in the day.

Madonna cried as she called the loss "tragic" and said she was "devastated to be in any way associated with anyone suffering."

I watched a portion of this video. I had to stop it half way through and make a comment. What happened during the stage construction in France is absolutely tragic. While trying to pay tribute at her concert in Italy to the workers that died due to the stage collapse in France, the people in the audience were clapping and chanting Madonna's name. She was trying to show the workers who lost their lives respect. The audience members seemed to not care. Truly, it was a poor display by the audience. They should feel bad for their behavior.

She made herself crystal clear when she said she "was devastated to be in any way associated with anyone suffering" - SHE JUST DOESN'T WANT THE BAD PRESS!!!!!!!! If she truly cared about anyone but herself, she would a) pay for both funerals, b) offer a major compensation to each family, and c) take some time off from the tour (that is class - something she knows nothing about). Are we surprised at this shallow, washed up, skank? The only way she makes headlines is by outlandish costumes and raunchy music. She needs to go away and be a mother to her brood (again, something she knows nothing about).

Four guitars is too much.

This broad is probably happy it happened. Now she becomes the focus.

And, I totally agree with a previous poster that she will not compensate the families unless she is sued and then she will settle out of court.

May those two men who tragically lost their lives RIP.

As far as Madonna is concerned. She said she doesn't like to see anybody suffering. Well, Madonna must have forgotten that she allowed the 3 Chihuahuas that she once cherished and used as accessories until she got sick of them to suffer after she dumped them on one of her friends.

Madonna is so phoney. All she cares about is herself.

hoochie mama    

I wonder if Madonna would be devastated if the two, who died, were AMERICANS?

So madonna says she doesn't want to be associated with anyone's suffering? Then let that bony old lady stop singing and prancing around on the stage like a 13 year old kid. That's caused too much suffering to humanity already.

who gives a shit    

First why is everyone clapping,etc. Second if she is so upset why is she doing a concert and since she is doing a concert why not donate the money off the concert to the families of the two men, plus weren't there more injured? Third WOULD SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE THE NAME MADGE COMES FROM, NEVER BEEN A MADONNA FAN SO WHAT AM I MISSING?????????????????????? At least she had those ugly arms covered!!
