VERONA, Italy – Adele wants concertgoers to look at her with their own eyes instead of through a camera lens.
A video posted by a fan on Twitter shows the 28-year-old British singer singling out a woman at a concert, asking her: “Could you stop filming me with that video camera? Because I’m really here in real life, you can enjoy it in real life rather than through your camera.”
Adele added: “This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show.” She said she’d really like those in the crowd to enjoy it “because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”
The singer even points out that the unnamed fan appears to be filming from a tripod, making no effort to actually enjoy the concert in person. She then rolled her eyes and turned around.
ABC News reports the video was taken at Adele’s show at the Arena di Verona, in Verona, Italy, on May 29.
