Miranda Lambert Called Out Fans Who Were Taking Selfies While She Was Singing (They Respond)

8 months ago

Most of us have been to a concert and chances are you took your phone out at least once to take a picture or a video. However, some people don’t do it just once, but they hardly put their phones down. And many artists hate it when people don’t live in the moment enjoying the music but instead choose to be on their phones. In this case, country singer Miranda Lambert was annoyed when some of her fans were taking a selfie while she was singing a very emotional ballad.

While performing in Las Vegas, she decided to pause.

The singer was performing the ballad “Tin Man” when she noticed some women taking selfies and distracting her. In a very polite but noticeably annoyed way, Miranda said, “I’m going to stop right here for a sec.” She then proceeded to point to the women’s direction and added, “These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song, and it’s pissing me off a little bit.”

It was obvious that the crowd agreed with her and cheered her on while she added, “I don’t like it — at all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight, I’m singing some country music. Shall we start again?” Her fans kept on applauding her until the song started from the beginning, and she sang it once again.

She is not the first artist to express dislike of phones at concerts.

In 2016, Adele said to her crowd, “I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera? Because I’m really here in real life, you can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.” Even Beyoncé called one fan out back in 2013 by saying, “I’m right in your face baby. You gotta seize this moment baby! Put that camera down!”

And phones seem to be turning into an even bigger issue lately, with many concertgoers thinking it’ll be funny to throw a phone to the artist on stage. Bebe Rexha and Drake were the first two victims of these trends, while artists like Harry Styles and P!nk were hit by other unusual things.

One of the women who were taking the selfie responded.

One of the women who were in the picture with her friends, said that “It was 30 seconds at most. We took the picture quickly and were going to sit back down. It felt like I was back at school with the teacher scolding me for doing something wrong and telling me to sit down back in my place. I feel like she was determined to make us look like we were young, immature and vain. But we were just grown women in our 30s to 60s trying to take a picture.”

Concerts are oftentimes unpredictable, and you might see the artist break down in tears or the partner of the drummer announce her pregnancy.
