Adele Asks A Fan At Her Concert To Stop Filming Her And 'Enjoy It In Real Life'

"I'm really here in real life."

In this day and age, it can be tempting to want to obsessively record every moment of our lives for posterity's sake. The fact that modern technology allows for this can very often be a good thing, but sometimes we miss out on living in the moment because we're so focused on capturing just the right angle with our video cameras or phones. 

During a recent concert on her world tour, Adele took the opportunity to remind her fans of this when she noticed a woman in the crowd filming her on a tripod.

"Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera?" Adele said between songs. "Because I'm really here in real life. You can enjoy it in real life."

This request inspired applause from the audience as Adele continued, "This isn't a DVD. This is a real show. I'd really like you to enjoy my show, because there are lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

Of course, the irony of this moment is that it was captured on video by another concertgoer, allowing all of us who weren't physically present to see it. We'll just assume that the person filming took Adele's advice and enjoyed the rest of the show with their own two eyes — and, more importantly, ears.
