Madonna Threatens Chilean Fans Over Cigarettes

Madonna Threatens Chilean Fans Over CigarettesMadonna 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!!

‘Secondhand smoke’

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.”

‘I can’t sing if you smoke’

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.”

So, what do you think of the great Madonna threatening to cancel her performance over cigarettes? Was it diva-ish, plain rude or just plain acceptable? Feel free to share your thoughts over Madonna’s no-smoking demands with us. Broadcast your opinions via the comment box below!

‘The Ataris’ Frontman Attacks Drummer On Stage

Crazy moment at The Ataris concert in Jersey this weekend … when the lead singer FLIPPED OUT and attacked his drummer … firing his guitar at the guy and then throwing the drum kit off the stage.

It was a pretty glorious meltdown … the band — famous for their 2003 hit “Boys of Summer” — were in the middle of a song when singer Kris Roe decided he HATED the way the drummer was playing. Roe finally reaches his breaking point … unstrapping his guitar and launching it at the drummer. When the drummer continued to play, Roe grabbed pieces of the drum set … lifted them over his head … and threw them off the stage, until the drummer got the message.

Roe then went to the mic and tried to explain himself — “Our drummer is f**king failing it tonight … I don’t know what his f**king problem is … but I’m gonna finish the set by myself.”

Kris — along with the rest of the band (sans drummer) — has issued a video statement explaining why he flipped out on stage. Kris says the drummer had been drinking heavily before the show … “for like 6 hours probably” … and was a mess on stage, missing beats and playing like crap. Kris says he would have liked to have handled the situation differently … “but c’mon … it’s rock ‘n roll.”

What can you say about this recent Ataris concert breakdown? Should they fire their drummer or their frontman? Feel free to give us a holler via the comment box below!

Gaga was in the middle of her hit “Edge of Glory,” when she bends over with her back to the stage and starts blowin’ chunks … and then immediately pulls herself together and starts dancing again! Seconds later, she bends over again and pukes again … and then a 3rd time … before stepping right back into her routine like nothing happened.

After the show, Gaga tweeted about the vomit-athon … even posting a link to the clip with the line, “Was praying nobody saw but actually its quite a good laugh if u need one!” Pa pa pa puker face.

Sources close to Gaga tell TMZ … Gaga had been suffering from the flu before the show … but didn’t want to cancel the show … ’cause she’s a badass. We’re told Gaga has since recovered from the illness and is now doing fine.

Promoters Pull Plug On Springsteen And McCartney Concert After Noise Curfew

In what may be the dumbest enforcement of a curfew in rock and roll history, organizers of a Bruce Springsteen concert in London literally pulled the plug on the show during an encore featuring special guest Paul McCartney.

“I gotta tell you, I’ve been trying to do this for 50 years,” Springsteen told the crowd of 76,000 while introducing McCartney. The pair–backed by the E Street Band and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello–launched into the Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There.” But Springsteen  had already exceeded the three-hour time limit set by London’s Westminster Council for the Hyde Park concert, according to the BBC. The sound was cut off at approximately 10:40 p.m. local time as the Springsteen and McCartney performed “Twist and Shout.”

During the band’s second song with McCartney, “a drably dressed man with sensible hair could be seen waving frantically at the back of the stage, indicating the rock legends’ time was drawing to a close,” CNN reported. “The sound suddenly dampened, and went quiet. At first, the Boss didn’t seem to notice. He attempted to address the crowd, apparently unaware that they couldn’t hear him. But as it became clear that there was no amplification, he and lead guitarist Stevie Van Zandt played what looked to be a brief a cappella goodnight for the benefit of the front rows, shrugged, and left the stage.”

After the show, Van Zandt slammed the decision: ”Seriously, when did England become a police state?” Van Zandt wrote on Twitter. “Is there just too much fun in the world? We would have been off by 11 if we’d done one more. On a Saturday night! Who were we disturbing?” Concertgoers agreed, to put it mildly.

On Sunday, the city council and concert organizers released separate statements, scrambling to deflect criticism: ”Concert organizers, not the council, ended last night’s concert in Hyde Park to comply with their license, which [allowed] them to run the concert until 10:30 p.m.,” the city council said in a statement on Sunday.

Should the promoters have allowed the Springsteen-McCartney pair to finish their number? Or, were they right to adhere strictly to London’s noise curfew? Share your thoughts in the comment box below!

Channing Tatum As A Stripper In ‘Magic Mike’

Ladies, get your dollar bills out for this one. It’s been established for a while that Channing Tatum used to strip. So it’s only fitting he play the lead in “Magic Mike,” about a male stripper in search for more than just money and lascivious women.

Seemingly out of character, the comedy is directed by Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (“Erin Brockovich,” “Traffic”), in theaters June 29th. Meanwhile, true-to-character, Matthew McConaughey appears shirtless in the newly-released trailer (below) as a strip club owner.

Tatum’s moves are impressive, but I’d expect nothing less: Before he was famous, Tatum worked as a male stripper in Tampa, Florida, when he was 19-years-old. It’s no wonder his dancing is so professional-looking!

Sure the actor is reaching for higher-profile roles in films such as “21 Jump Street” and “The Bitter Pill” (also directed by Soderbergh and starring Rooney Mara, due out next year), but he is more than willing to poke fun at his beefcake persona—as he did earlier in the month when he grind-danced on Elton John during a concert. Co-starring with Channing and all of his bulges are Olivia Munn and Cody Horn.

Are you excited to watch Channing Tatum perform as a stripper? Be prepared to drool and share your comments below!

Woman Sues Johnny Depp Over Alleged Concert Beatdown

Johnny Depp is being sued by a 52-year-old disabled woman who says she was roughed up and humiliated by the actor’s bodyguards during a concert back in December… claiming Depp’s hired muscle beat her up and tore her pants off.

According to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the woman — who identifies herself as Jane Doe — claims she was trying to get to her seat in the V.I.P. area of an Iggy Pop concert when Depp’s goons went berserk. In her suit, Doe — who claims she’s a professor of medicine at UC Irvine — claims for no reason, Depp’s team grabbed her from behind and bear-hugged her, while restraining both of her wrists.

Doe claims the bodyguards went after her cell phone — which contained highly sensitive confidential medical information about her patients — and ripped it from her hand “one finger at a time.” Doe claims a member of Depp’s squad eventually put her in handcuffs — and then dragged her on the ground, causing her pants to be removed from her body, “exposing her buttocks to  the other Hollywood Palladium Theater patrons.  Doe claims she suffered severe injuries in the incident — including a dislocated left elbow, bleeding, swelling, bruising and possibly broken bones.

The woman also claims the incident caused more damage to her pre-existing spondyloarthritis and fibromyalgia — which affects her joints and back. Doe is suing for unspecified damages.

TMZ broke the story… the woman had filed a report with the L.A.P.D. immediately following the incident… and identified herself as Robin Eckert. Law enforcement sources tell us Eckert appeared intoxicated at the time she made the report. We’re told the case is still under investigation — but law enforcement sources tell us the alleged victim has been less than cooperative.
