Adam Lambert Rips Fan - Get Off the Damn Phone

2/16/2010 1:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Adam Lambert put one of his own fans on blast yesterday -- in the middle of a live performance -- after the rude fan was caught yapping away on her phone while the "American Idol" alum was trying to sing.

Adam Lambert

It all went down while Adam was performing a song for iheartradio in New York when Adam heard the girl talking, stopped mid-song and said, "Can you get off your phone?! You're yelling into it ... wait, sorry, we're going to start over."

Lambert then continued to go after the fan saying, "Really?! Dominoes ... we deliver!" He continued, "You're not watching TV honey ... it's a live show."

Can ya hear me now?

Have no shame    

My goodness...before I watched the video, I assumed he flipped out on her. He was really cool about it. Let's see Axl Rose in that situation.

Did anyone stop to think it could have been a serious phone call, maybe something had happened? He has no right to be a diva like that.

Hey eddie, why do all straight people think their phone calls are THE MOST IMPORTANT things in the world and have to be taken RIGHT THEN!

Okay, see how stupid that sounds? Stop generalizing -

But it's ok for him to thrust his crotch to a back-up dancer on live TV...that's not rude? Maybe she was "just in the moment" and wasnt thinking...like him at the AMA's!

Well, it appears that all of you Adam haters have another opportunity to try to rip him apart and for what? For demanding some respect while he sings. Bravo to you all... What a bunch of hateful, american, homophobic a-holes. You are the reason why I am embarrassed to be american and why the rest of the world hates us. You can't deny his talent so you have to go right for his sexual orientation. GFY...

I'm glad he did it. Cell phones have made society ruder than they already were.

Let's hope the cell phone user wasn't a reporter reporting back a live update to some news agency. He's already off to a rocky start with his AMA performance. This would be the last thing he needs. I think he should have ignored her until he makes his mark in music. JMHO.

I thought his 15 minutes were up last week. Seriously, who does he think he is, Tim McGraw? His record sales are in the dumpster and nobody CARES anymore.

I'm a gay man and I think it's embarrassing that this attention whore queen has been turned into the poster child for acceptance of gay singers and artists. He's annoying, talentless in my opinion and does and should NOT represent the gay community as a whole.

He's also WAY TOO GREEN to be acting like some bitchy diva. Apparently, hanging out with Kathy Griffin and having his pasty, pimply ass kissed by everyone in the media has convinced him that he is way more important and special than he is.

Count me among the millions of other gay men who can't wait for this freak's 15 minutes to be up.

Good for Adam. He did exactly what he needed to do and in a polite way too. And for you who think his career is over and say mean things -- well, you too are just as rude. Adam is way more classy than any of you. Again, good for Adam!

As much as I find Lambert offensive and disqusting this fan was TOTALLY in the wrong. Cell phones should not be used:
1. In Concerts
2. While driving
3. In lines in stores, post offices or anywhere.
4. In restaurants.
5. In any place that it can be heard by others.
I work in an office doing taxes for people. Occasionally there is a need for a client to call for information. That would be one of the few exceptions to not using them.
I have never met anyone so important that they need to be on the phone that much. This "fan" obviously was not a fan or she would have had the courtesy to stay off the phone to begin with.
He should have stopped the show and had her shown out. Then picked up where he would have been had it not happened. Let the fans deal with her over the lost part of the performance and see how she likes it.

the comments here are absolutely idiotic. this show was a private concert sponsored by radio stations. it was very small -- only 200 people -- and you had to win tickets to attend. the concert was being filmed and parts of it are already posted on major radio station websites. the girl was talking on her phone right in the front near the stage. others around could hear her talk; the concert was being professionally recorded. She was clearly distacting Adam and others and he asked her to stop. He was totally in the right here. Nothing diva-ish about it. This wasn't an arena or a club show. It was a small venue. Good for him for taking a stand (just as many many broadway performers have been doing recently when performances are interrupted by audience members taking calls and talking on the phone).
