People are conflicted after country music superstar Miranda Lambert’s latest concert stunt.
According to reports, Lambert, who is currently headlining a Vegas residency slot, was performing a show on Saturday night when she stopped her concert abruptly. Now fans and others alike are conflicted about how they feel about Lambert’s actions.
TMZ reports that while Lambert was performing she spotted a fan, who paid to be at her show, taking a “selfie.” Lambert took the opportunity to call out the paying fan in front of the entire crowd.
While preparing to perform “Tin Man,” she announced, “I’m gonna stop for a minute.” Lambert then went on to tell the woman she was motioning to stop taking selfies instead of listening to the music.
“These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song, it’s pissing me off a little bit. Sorry, I don’t like it at all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music.”
As the woman put her phone away, Lambert began to perform again. People at the show were quick to show their support for Lambert, cheering her own as she called out the “selfie-takers.”
But while the fellow concertgoers seemed to support Lambert, other social media users were as supportive of Lambert’s actions. “Way to embarrass and shame your loyal fans who adore you,” one Twitter user wrote. “She could’ve poked fun and posed in the selfie and then encouraged them to be in the moment after that. Not cool.”
“Going to a concert is about creating an experience and a memory. If someone wants to take a picture to document that memory, they should be able to,” another Twitter user added.
