During an electrifying night at her Las Vegas residency, Miranda Lambert found herself in a truly unexpected moment that sparked controversy on social media. As she passionately began singing the emotional ballad “Tin Man,” something caught her eye – a group of ladies engrossed in taking the perfect selfies instead of being present in the music.

In a TikTok video posted Sunday, Lambert paused her show and said, “I’m going to stop here for a second. I’m sorry. These girls are worried about a selfie and are not listening to the song.”

The “White Liar” singer continued, “It’s pissing me off slightly. Sorry, I don’t like it. At all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music.” Lambert then restarted “Tin Man” to rapturous applause from the audience, igniting a mixed reaction from her devoted fans.
