The last time Miranda Lambert took a moment during a show at her residence in Las Vegas, it was to call out some fans who weren’t paying attention as she was “singing fucking country music.” However, when Miranda, 39, interrupted one of the shows over the past weekend, it wasn’t to shame another selfie, but to read the writing on a fan’s outfit. “His shirt says ‘Shoot the tequila, not the selfies,'” Miranda told the crowd gathered at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
“She did it, not me!” Miranda said with a smile before telling the viewer that her move was “badass”. From there, someone gave Miranda a mini bottle of tequila. The “Bluebird” singer uncapped it and snapped a photo before gifting the rest of the bottle to one of her bandmates. After that, Miranda continued her show.
During a July 21 performance of Miranda Velvet Rodeo residence, she stopped in the middle of the signing of “Tin Man” to address a pair of fans in the crowd. “These girls are worried about their selfies and not listening to the song. It kinda pisses me off,” she said. “We’re here to listen to country music tonight. I’m singing fucking country music.
Miranda had not directly addressed the “selfie-gate”. His first social media post after the incident was to remind pet owners to neuter and neuter their dogs and cats. Afterwards, she appeared at the CMA Fest, channeling the “Barbiecore” aesthetic into her outfit.
However, one of the women Miranda called — Adela Calin, a Las Vegas influencer — spoke about those experiences. “These are the two photos we were talking about when Miranda Lambert stopped her concert and told us to sit down and not take selfies,” Calin captioned the social media post that showed her alongside her friends. The group had their backs to Miranda as she sang in the photos.
calin said country life that right after Miranda called them, “(two) of my friends were very upset and walked out. (two) ladies excused themselves and went to the ladies room, and me and a friend stayed for the rest of the concert. I was determined to enjoy my night. She also told NBC News that the selfie took “thirty seconds at most. We took the picture quickly and went to sit down. I felt like I was back in school with the teacher scolding me.
