Adam Lambert: 'Can You Get Off Your Phone?'

Adam Lambert: 'Can You Get Off Your Phone?'

Adam Lambert looks rocker chic as he shoots an interview at the Kimberly Hotel’s rooftop lounge Upstairs in New York City on Monday (February 15).

At the 28-year-old entertainer’s iheartradio secret show last night at NYC’s PC Richard & Son Theater, Adam had to ask a chatty cell phone talker standing up front to get off the phone while he sang over her!

“You’re not watching TV, honey – it’s a live show!” he said before starting a performance of “Whataya Want From Me?” for a second time.

At the G-Star fashion show earlier tonight, Adam addressed the phone situation, telling JustJared.com, “Oh, it’s all out there already. I don’t need to bring it up again. Every media outlet out there already picked it up!”

    I’d buy him a drink on the house.

  • hahaha

    @ME: He calls himself a “f*g” in the banter vid so I’m not sure what point you were trying to make lmfao.

    Homophobia is not cool and it’s not clever. It’s GAY. It only makes YOU look like a self loathing closeted gay lmao. Makes you look a retard.

  • Jeff

    He had every right to say that. It was kind of a slow song and she was standing like in front of him. I can imagine it’s distracting and it’s just really rude.

  • JPB

    @Jeff: ANF the fact that this was being recorded for future PROMO. Yet she still was gobby on the phone and to the security. I can’t stand people like that. I’d have reacted a lot worse.

  • melissa asherman

    Go adam! I HATE PEOPLE WHO TALK ON THE PHONE LOUDLY DURING MOVIES, CONCERTS, SHOWS, ETC. IT’S RUDE! I CAME TO SEE WHATEVER IT IS I CAME FOR, AND I DIDN’T COME TO HEAR YOU CHAT ON THE PHONE!

  • Lucas

    rofl that was hilarious to me

  • elin

    Well done baby

  • bah!

    LMFAO I love what his bro tweeted:

    @ negativeneil Adam just stopped in the middle of a song and told some bit.ch in the audience to hang up her phone. So proud.

  • Cedric

    You go Adam! People need to learn when it is inappropriate to use a mobile phone. They need to start using jammers at venues to stop this shit.

  • http://google Gabi

    There is nothin’ wrong with what Adam did. If I was performing i would want people to watch me. The chatty lady was undermining his performance. Adam can never do wrong in my eyes anyway…

  • mary

    He was not being rude!! He asked her in a nice way. I thought it was kinda funny what he said “Dominoes we deliver”….

  • goth

    This is not an arena concert.This is just a intimate small venue and acoustic people!She should have gotten kicked out!
    and I love that this is kinda news.Go Adam!

  • Jen

    Go Adam! You have a new fan in me! and I cant believe she was proud of getting called out for being rude. People who talk on the phone while they drive, at the movies or at a concert, are the worst.

  • Kayko

    I didn’t really like Adam. I thought his video “For Your Entertainment” was like a Britney Spears makeover, right down to the dance moves. I thought how tacky, being toted like it was something super new. NOW – I love the guy. Funny how the smallest things change your perception, eh? Awesome! Looooove it. And I loved that rendition of “Whataya want from me” too.

  • http://www.box.net/shared/i10uxhtuoj See Megan Faux b4 surgery

    has adam put on weight??

  • Lisa

    I was there. He wasn’t rude at all – VERY polite (& humourous) in fact. The venue should have thrown her out. She was YELLING into her phone. It was a very small venue (200 people packed in like sardines). You could hear her whole conversation. This was also being taped – and was a very intimate acoustic performance. This was an exclusive concert – people were practically selling their organs to go – if this chick didn’t want to be there, then she should have given her ticket to someone who would have appreciated it. It was like someone having a cell phone conversation in a movie theater, but much worse. How would YOU like that? Didn’t think you would.

  • Lisa

    See Megan Faux b4 surgery,

    Are you serious?! I actually met him in person on Monday. He came out to the line (in the cold) to take pictures and sign autographs. He is actually quite tall and very slim. (And stunning in person.)

  • twpumpkin

    THIS GUY IS SUCH A JERK! HE MAKES A BIG DEAL ABOUT BEING OPENLY GAY. WHY DIDNT HE “COME OUT” DURING AMERICAN IDOL? HE IS SUCH A PHONEY!

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    that comment that glamberace said made me think about what a famewhore he is
    it was pretty funny tho, the chick must have been really embarrassed lol

  • media bias

    SO SICK OF bloggers. You write stories without pertinent facts to cause hate and controversy. It was NOT a concert. It was a quiet intimate ACOUSTIC show being TAPED FOR I HEART RADIO AND Z100. z100 has been playing the acoustic RE-TAKE after her, all day yesterday and today. Security escorted her OUT. The previous show at VH! on Saturday told the audience if they dared use any cell r camera they’d be booted out. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD TELL Z100 RADIO YOU WANTED TO HEAR THE CELL PHONE WOMAN ON THE RADIO? IDIOTS.Further, his comments were said with a smile and joking with her trying to lighten up instead of calling her what she deserved. She later went on her facebook laughing how funny she thought she was.

  • media bias

    LIVE SHOW BEING TAPED FOR Z100 AIR PLAY. UH HELLO?

  • naia

    @lakers fan in boston: Teaching someone on how to properly behave at an intimate setting = famewhore? Yeah, NO.

  • StateTheObvious

    @whoa: If that were the case, like the people in the video holding up camcorders, camera’s and phones, she wouldn’t have been able to “yell into it.” It’s a bit hard, not to mention counterproductive, to yell into a phone while simultaneously holding it up to let your friends hear the concert.

    While it may seem a little diva at first, no one can fault lambert for telling a person to stop making so much noise while he tries to entertain these people. He was singing to a small room venue using acoustic instruments and a (seemly) low-amplification microphone.

    @FroFro:

    i think that biotch shouldnt have been on the phone n if it is what that important she should have walked awat , n i dont even like adam , its just a matter of respect he is singing to his fans n shes interupptin n cant concentate!!!! i hate cell phones put it on vibarate~~!!!!!!!!!!

  • zoey

    Me thinks Glambert had a hissy fit. Bitch please. He sounded like ass and just wanted to start that mess over.

  • Narnia_land

    I think he handled the situation perfectly. You have to admit that it’s really disturbing when you’re in a concert, especially in an ACOUSTIC concert, and somebody yell at the phone. And i think Adam didn’t rude at all, he ASKED politely and he is such a big star.

  • shelby

    good for him. it’s rude to be on a cell phone! call your friends or granny afterwards,.

  • http://geeklovematch.com geeklovematch

    what an inspiration!

  • mel

    It was an intimate accoustic concert, recorded for tv, not a huge stadium, where an odd person on a cell phone would not be heard.

  • darkdreams

    @whoa:

    Except this chick wasn’t quietly holding up her phone for someone else to listen — she was *screaming* into it at a show that was *NOT* a regular concert she’d paid to get into. It was being taped to be shown at a later date — it’d be like doing this during a recording session for an album…
