During a soundcheck for her MDMA world tour in Santiago, Chile, the Queen of Pop scolded fans after she caught a few concertgoers smoking.
“There’s people smoking right now,” she told the crowd, before chastising the offenders. “No smoking!… If you’re going to smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show.”
The upset 54-year-old performer added: “Are we going to play that game? I’m not kidding! I can’t sing if you smoke. Entiendes? If you love me, then don’t smoke.”
But the damage was already done. Madonna’s show was delayed by more than two hours Wednesday night. Fans were reportedly so disappointed with the show, entire sections started chanting Lady Gaga’s name.
