Miranda Lambert calls out fan T-shirt amid selfie controversy: ‘Shoot tequila, not selfies’

Miranda Lambert is not backing down on her selfie-stance — and she’s taking note of fans who appear to be on her side.

The country singer reacted to an audience member’s T-shirt while she performed after she abruptly halted her set to call out some fans for taking selfies during a recent show. The move has sparked controversy over whether fans should be able to snap self-facing pics during an artist’s performance

Her shirt says ‘shoot tequila not selfies,'” Lambert said in a video that a concert-goer posted on Instagram over the weekend.

The 39-year-old proceeded to grab a small bottle from the audience and took a swig before passing it on to her guitarist.

During a recent performance of her “Velvet Rodeo” Las Vegas residency at the Bakkt Theater, the country singer stopped singing to call out audience members on their behavior.


“These girls are worried about their selfies and not listening to the song, and it’s pissing me off a little bit,” Lambert said, according to video of the performance posted Sunday. “I don’t like it, at all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight.”

But Lambert didn’t let the moment get her down. “Shall we start again?” she asked the audience shortly after.

Miranda Lambert, Adele: Artists are clapping back at audience behavior

Lambert isn’t the only singer who’s taken aim at concert etiquette recently. Earlier this month, a fan-captured video of British singer Adele showed the soul-pop songstress sounding off on the recent trend of fans throwing objects at artists onstage.
