Madonna Threatens Fans

Madonna made a serious threat to a bunch of her cigarette-smoking fans in Chile last night ... PUT OUT YOUR BUTTS ... OR I'M NOT GONNA PERFORM!!

It all went down during a sound check for her concert at an open-air theater in Santiago ... when some secondhand smoke blew up in Madge's face ... so Madge blew up on the smokers.

"There are people smoking right now, " the singer lashed out ... "No smoking!"

"If you're going to smoke cigarettes, I'm not doing a show."

She continued, "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're looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I'm a stupid f**king idiot."

In the end, the smoke-aholics extinguished their ciggies ... and Madge went on to perform a bunch of her hits, including the song "Human Nature."

... and she's not sorry.

I still think she has a great voice the woman is a legend... On the other hand I'm torn... The concert was outside so I don't see the issue.

I can understand not wanting smoke in your face, but there's no need to be a b.i.t.c.h to people who paid to see you. Could've simply asked to please put out their cigarettes.

She's still alive? I thought she died after breaking her hip at the nursing home.

Madonna is 54 or so, nowhere near retirement age yet. And she does sing live for most of her concerts, so cigarette smoke isn't the best thing for her throat. Ranting about it is a bit much though.

By the by, smoking in a video is a different ballgame.

The show pretty much sucked, she started over 2 hours late while it was pouring rain and the fans were waiting outside (the show was supposed to start at 9:30 and she went on stage at 11:35), AND the cut like 8 songs from the set list... She was on stage for little over 80 minutes :S A lot of fans even left before she even performed :S

She will not perform if the audience smokes, but she will have sex with them.
