Now what is this? Our Queen having a drag on stage?
And not the good kind where there is sashaying away and fabulous wigs involved!
As Madonna is finishing out her MDNA tour in South America this week, she caused quite a stir a few days ago when she insisted a group of her Chilean fans quit it with the cigarettes in the arena. She announced, rather bluntly, that if they continued to smoke in the venue, she would refuse to perform.
Naturally, the ashes turned to dust in a flash, but those same Chilean fans are rather perturbed today after Madonna's weekend show in Córdoba. Seems while it was an atrocious act of rudeness for her fans to smoke in front of her two days prior, Madonna herself was allowed to light up on stage while performing!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to watch Madge enjoy herself a ciggie while going into a performance of Like A Virgin!
Okay, before you all yell "double standard," can we just say this:
SHE'S A QUEEN! She makes her own rules! And, as many of you might recall, she was already not feeling well during last Wednesday's Santiago show… AND it was raining! The extra element of smoke was a detriment to her then. But on Saturday, she looked all well and good to us … so maybe she felt like her lungs could handle it.
Would we have rather her not indulge in the nasty, nasty cancer stick? Of course! But if we've learned anything over the years, we've learned that what a diva wants, a diva gets. You just have to stand back and take comfort that you are watching magic around her unfold.
