Madonna was being her b*tchy self during a sound check in Santiago, Chile yesterday when she refused to perform unless everyone who was smoking in the OUTDOOR arena stopped smoking. That cigarette smoke 50 yards away was really offensive.
“Someone’s smoking right now. No smoking. If you’re gonna smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show. You don’t care about me, I don’t care about you. I’m not kidding. I can’t sing if you smoke. Entiendes? 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 fucking idiot.”
That’s amazing. “Entiendes?” She even managed to be patronizing while she b*tched people out. People love that. There’s no faster than way to get people to do what you want than to treat them like children. You know how they say you’ll catch more flies with honey than vinegar? That’s a lie. Apparently, stomping around and throwing a hissy fit is way more effective.
