Over the weekend, Miranda Lambert scolded concertgoers who took a selfie during her Las Vegas residency, and the video has gone viral

After she called out the girls taking a selfie, some of the audience were so put off by her comments that they walked out, as seen and heard saying in the video, “You don’t treat your fans that way.” 

Various users on Twitter sided with the girls, saying that they were having fun and that her reaction was rude and uncalled for, considering they had paid for the show. 

Many others sided with Lambert, claiming that people are obsessed with technology and should be present watching the concert, ultimately leaving the internet divided on who was wrong. 

The impact of using phones during concerts has been a topic of hot debate over the last few years. 

Some artists embrace being constantly filmed during their performances, such as Taylor Swift, who often engages with the fans who record during her show.

Yet many other artists have either spoken out regarding the impact of technology on the concert experience as a whole or requested that certain songs be “phone free.” 

For example, Chris Martin (Coldplay) requested that all fans put their phones away for a second go around singing “A sky full of stars.” Of course, not everyone followed the rule, but most audience members chose to be fully in the moment. 

Several artists, such as Bob Dylan and Jack White, have had concerts where they didn’t allow any phones. Whether or not there should be a phone ban at these events continues to be argued, but the bottom line is that most artists likely won’t implement such a strict rule due to the potential consequences. 

Miranda’s outrage wasn’t necessarily unwarranted; frustration can build up and boil over. Also, as all too often, the singer's personal life was pulled into the situation, with some Twitter users claiming her divorce from Blake Sheldon was now “warranted.” 

Although her anger may have been warranted, it was ultimately unfounded because phones were allowed, and no rules were stated. The women were caught entirely off guard, simply taking a photo together. They did what many of us do all the time at concerts and were humiliated by a woman and artist they deeply admired.

Joe Jonas Has A Track Record Of Disrespecting The Women In His Life

If you jump on any social media outlet, you will quickly see the news that is top of the celebrity gossip news. Joe Jonas and Sophie Tucker are splitting, and the world is shocked as the seemingly happy couple welcomed several children into their lives and have only been married for a few years. What is more shocking is the smear campaign that Joe began running with the publicity team that painted Sophie as an absent mother and him as the perfect father. But why are we surprised by how Joe is reacting? Our society loves to paint a narrative around the working mother who should apparently only be devoted to her and her children alone. However, the behavior is entirely on brand for the famous singer. After all, Joe has a track record of disrespecting the women he dated. He broke up with Taylor Swift over a voice message. Imagine experiencing one of your first loves, assuming everything is going great, and then you check your phone message and realize you are being dumped. That happened to Taylor when Joe ended things with her with a 27-second voicemail, which she revealed on the Ellen Showon the Ellen Show over a decade ago. I’m sure that we can all agree that breakups typically deserve an in-person conversation, and that doesn’t mean over the phone is cowardly, to say the very least. Years later, Taylor admitted that her call-out of Joe had been a bit much, but he never publicly apologized and painted a narrative that he had been the hurt party and was grateful when she apologized. This is coming from the man who… Candidly shared the story of how he lost his virginity without any regard for his ex’s feelings.People magazine ran the following story saying that Joe had a funny story about the first time he was intimate with his long-term girlfriend at the time, Ashley Greene. “I didn’t have any condoms,” Joe explained. “So I went to our drummer Jack’s room — who was my roommate at the time — and I demolished his room looking for them. [I] found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished.” Reading this doesn’t come across as funny. If I were in a long-term relationship with someone and they told the story of us losing our virginity to the world in such detail, I would respond with the same message that Ashley did. which was to state on her Instagram page that "class is timeless."
