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 agree with what everyone is saying. The loss of the two men is more devastating and beyond a few words by the discustingly veiny, unsympathetic, money hungry, random child adopting Madonna. Notice how the statement was all about her! The ridiculous display of tears was an example of her pathetic acting skills. This is the same person who honors Michael Jackson by hiring a lame impersonator to perform in the middle of her concert near the day he passed. Kinda creepy! Maybe she could have donated the money spent on the impersonator to the city of LA to help fund the memorial service! Just a thought..... One other thing, can someone please explain her extremely odd accent? Isn't she from the midwest? I know she's lived in England, but it's not a English accent. It's like her own special creation! UGH! Enough of her!!!

Okay, for all of you who say that looking at her causes suffering...... I PRAY to look that good at 50 and still be able to do what she does. Stop being jealous and get a life.

I am sure that Madonna will provide compensation to the families of the victims. Also, they would not be able to sue her directly. Depending on why the crane broke will determine was it faulty manufacturing? Then they would be able to sue the manufacturer. If not it would unfortunately continue to be a tragic accident.

Madonna has compassion, bottom line, unlike many of the immature posters here who are incapable of real feelings who hide behind their comments. These small minded people don't know how to make the world a better place; they don't have the mental capacity to understand goodness and love and actually enjoy seeing others suffer. It's haters like you that contribute to all the misery and evil in this world. Love and kindness will prevail though....Your true fans love you Madonna! :-)

I have an idea for Madonna. If she's that heartbroken over what happened, then donate the proceeds of her concert in France to the families of the men who died.
Secondly, to everyone who is saying "they probably didn't understand her, there's a language barrier," then WHY go to an English speaking woman's concert. I know "I" wouldn't go to a concert that was all in Japanese...b/c I wouldn't understand what the hell was going on! I understand she's universally popular...but if she's CRYING on stage...that's usually a UNIVERSAL sign that someone is sad or upset. Even if they didn't understand English, once they heard her tearing up/crying...it should have been a sign to shut up b/c she was saying something of relevance. Just my opinion.

And to think that everybody thinks she's the worst actress that ever lived. She earned an Oscar for this phony breakdown.

I agree with Nonie, This world is slowly going to hell because of cold, selfish, mean idiots who sit behind their computer screens speeding hate! Madonna has more heart then all of you put together. I was a fan of hers in the 80's but not into her music anymore. But for Christ sake, she's more human and caring then any any of you hater demons could ever pretend to be. You immature hate spreading people make me sick!

I meant spreading hate, of course. And by the way cold hearted idiots, She has nooooo responsibility to pay them anything. She probably will compensate them, but she is in no way obligated to. She wasn't there and has nothing to do with the stage production company. They could be sued if there was negligence, but that has nothing to do with Madonna. But I guess if you have the mind of an evil grade schooler, you wouldn't understand that. You haters do not know Madonna so if you think her tears are phony, it's because you yourself have no sympathy for others so you just can't understand it.
