I put this here because it's more about the root cause of social networks moreso than Adele. Sorry, no video

Watch Adele Scold a Fan at Concert: 'This Isn’t a DVD. This is a Real Show'

Quote
Society’s biggest threat isn’t capitalism, but in fact the concert terrorists who hold up phones—or worse, IPADs!—throughout an entire show to capture photos and video for Instagram, Snapchat and the like, thus ruining the live experience of being at a show.

Instead of taking like a couple snapshots or an occasional quick video and then putting the phone away, some of these fans spend the entire concert viewing the show through their tiny machine instead of their eyeballs. Adele complained about this phenomenon during a concert on Sunday in Italy, during which one woman appeared to be shooting a feature film.

“I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life,” said Adele. “You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.” She went on: “Can you take your tripod down. This isn’t a DVD. This is a real show. I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”

Here, now that you’re done reading a post about the video, watch this video of the crowd applauding Adele for scolding the woman for taking the video.

Gawd, I hate when this happens. Watch the freakin show... that's why you are there. Why would I watch a crappy video of someone else's experience of attending said event? People trying to define themselves by posting anything and everything to make them appear to have some validity. Mind boggling.
