Madonna's concert in Chile nearly went up in smoke this week.
During a sound check for her show at an open-air theater in Santiago on Wednesday, Dec. 19, the 54-year-old pop icon noticed some fans lighting up in her vicinity. Annoyed, she interrupted her own performance of "Human Nature" to call out the offending audience members.
Responding to a "We love you" from someone in the crowd, Madonna shot back, "If you love me, then don't smoke. No smoking! You're looking right at me while you're smoking cigarettes, like I'm a stupid f---ing idiot."
The superstar -- who actually smokes a cigarette for effect in her "Girl Gone Wild" video, released earlier this year -- then turned and stormed offstage, leaving the half-packed venue waiting in the rain. However, the concert ultimately went on as planned.
