Why Miranda Lambert Stopped A Concert Mid Way Though A Performance Is the Most Mind Boggling…

At her residency event in Las Vegas over the weekend, country singer Miranda Lambert made it apparent she was not pleased with a few of the audience members when she interrupted her performance to call them out.

Lambert, 39, started performing her hit song “Tin Man” during her residency performance of “Velvet Rodeo” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Saturday. At that point, she saw some women in the front row taking photographs.

“I’m gonna stop right here for a second,” Lambert said in a clip of the interaction posted on TMZ.

The music came to a halt.

“These girls are worried about their selfies and not listening to the song,” said Lambert. “It’s pissing me off a little bit. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. And I’m singing some country damn music.”

The audience roared wildly throughout Lambert’s criticism of the selfie crew.

The country singer informed the ladies, “We’re good,” and then signaled to the audience that she wanted the phones put away before asking the audience, “Shall we start again?” The performance then continued.

According to the New York Post, the popular country singer’s actions on TikTok divided fans.

“Miranda didn’t even talk to our Vegas audience between songs hardly,” one TikTok user said. “Always in a mood. Fans can enjoy however they want. They paid.”

Another added, “But maybe they were taking the selfies or videos to remember the occasion. I think she was out of line.”

Others on the platform agreed with the “Hell on Heels” hitmaker.

“There’s all the time in the world to partake in those activities during her rowdier, more up-tempo numbers but during her sacred ballads just shut up and listen,” one fan said. “Not exactly asking for much when there’s very few on her setlist.”

Another blasted, “How can you even disrespect ‘Tin Man’ like this. This is one of those songs that have gotten me through the hardest times of my life. Literally. I couldn’t stop crying long enough to even hold my phone if I wanted to.”

 

I have friends who make money playing gigs every week so I asked them if this would be a bother to them. Shockingly, the majority of people said it would not and they would remind Ms. Lambert that it’s not about her. The reason she has a residency is because of selfie-taking fans.

All of those who perform and get paid, do so at the luxury of the paying, selfie-taking fans.

 

Don’t take yourself so seriously, & remember who put you there.
