Stars need to remember that it’s the fans that make them popular not their “talent.”
You can be the most talented person in the world but if fans don’t attend the concerts there’s no money.
Country star Miranda Lambert should take note after she stopped her Las Vegas concert mid-song to chastise a group of fans for taking pictures. The video of the moment quickly went viral on social media and has now reached over 1.5 million views.
Adela Calin, one of the women Lambert criticized, has come forward and accused the singer of trying to make her and her friends look “young, immature, and vain.” Calin says the group merely wanted to take a snap to remember the show and that they intended to sit back down after the photo was taken.
“I’m gonna stop right here for a second, I’m sorry. These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song. It’s pissing me off a little bit. [pauses] I don’t like it – at all. You’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music,” Lambert exclaimed.
Lambert then looked at the women directing them to sit down and said, “Shall we start again?”

Lambert lectured two women promoting the fact they were at her concert calling them out in front of thousands because she was not the center of attention for those two women in the audience.
Now, let’s look at how a real pro handles fans that appear to “check out.”

In 2021, Lambert said she is learning to an “ally” to the LGBTQ group.
“I do think we are in a moment of change and I have so much to learn,” she said, adding that she “always” calls her brother Luke Lambert and his husband Marc when she isn’t sure what to say.
“I know I am uneducated, but I am full of love,” she said. “Being in a family where I am surrounded by LGBTQ people, it has me learning and figuring out how I can be a part of the change and still be the same person I have been as an artist for 20 years.”
