Do NOT Smoke in Front of Madonna

"Burning Up" apparently acceptable in song form only

Lung cancer, emphysema and a breath like a chimney are only the most noticeable effects of a regular smoking habit. Less known, but equally, if not more, threatening is a verbal dressing-down from Madonna, who berated a small group of fans in Chile for lighting up at Madge's sound check. 

"There are people smoking right now," she said. "No smoking. If you're going to smoke cigarettes, I'm not doing a show. F-ck you. You don't care about me, I don't care about you. All right? You want to play that game? I'm not kidding. I can't sing if you smoke. Entiendes?"

"You're looking right at me and smoking cigarettes, like I'm a stupid f-cking idiot," Madonna added before storming offstage.

This being Madonna, naturally someone was there to document every second of her existence. Watch the whole video above (while you can).

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.
