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.”
