(Newser) – Take note, Madonna fans: The Material Girl is very, very anti-smoking. TMZ reports that during a sound check before an open-air concert in Chile Wednesday night, Madonna was apparently perturbed by secondhand smoke coming from fans with cigarettes near the stage. "No smoking!" she said. "If you're going to smoke cigarettes, I'm not doing a show. ... You're looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I'm a stupid f---ing idiot."

"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," she continued. "Entiendes?" Fortunately, the smokers put out their cigarettes and the show went on, but not before Madge had "stormed off stage," according to the Hollywood Reporter. (Read more Madonna stories.)
