“I’m gonna stop right here for a second, I’m sorry,” Lambert addressed the audience while starting to sing her 2016 single “Tin Man.” “These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song.”
“It’s pissing me off a little bit,” she continued. “Sorry, I don’t like it. At all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music.”
“Shall we start again?” she asked the audience shortly after.
Lambert’s bold move to stand against excessive phone usage during concerts has become a topic of division on the internet. Some applauded her stance, while others felt she went too far by singling out individuals.
