Adela Calin, one of the fans scolded by Miranda Lambert mid-show for taking photos over the weekend during the singer’s Las Vegas residency has now vowed to boycott all the future performances of the artist.

The country singer paused her show to give six fans — all posing for a selfie together including Cain — a scolding. The half a dozen ladies were on their feet to take the selfie with Lambert in the backdrop and reportedly were blocking the view of the other people trying to watch the concert. Lambert also found the selfie-clicking of the group distracting to her performance as a whole.

Lambert was about to launch into her song, Tin Man, on Saturday when she briefly paused her show to address the women near the front. She told her band, “I’m gonna stop for a minute” in the middle of her set. The music was cut off, and Lambert ended up pointing to the women to stop taking pictures and put their phones away. They must have listened to her because she resumed her performance.

As video of her scolding went viral on the internet, fans on the internet were divided. While some thought she did the right thing by calling out the group of female fans, others thought she overreacted in that moment and that the fans had the right to take as many selfies they wanted.

Who is Adela Calin?

Adela Calin is one of the women who was part of the group of women, all of whom got scolded by Lambert. Appearing on TMZ Live, she defended herself and her friends, saying that most of the fans have the wrong idea about what she and her friends were doing.

She also said that it was not correct that they were being rude or disruptive. She insisted that they did the photo session for about 30 seconds and their poses were not blocking anyone’s view as their seats were lower than everyone else’s seats.

She also said they were not even in Lambert’s directly viewpoint. She said that when she called out by the singer in the middle of the show, she was shocked. Calin said that Lambert’s behavior reminded her of a school teacher who would point to her students and talk down to them — a gesture she did not appreciate.

“It felt like I was back at school with the teacher scolding me for doing something wrong and telling me to sit down back in my place. I feel like she was determined to make us look like we were young, immature and vain. But we were just grown women in our 30s to 60s trying to take a picture,” she said.

In the end, Calin admitted that the experience had affected her deeply and she will refrain from buying another Lambert show ticket ever again in the future.
