Word to the wise: do not set up a tripod at an Adele concert or the singer will rightfully call your ish out. At a recent show in Verona, Italy, her royal highness politely zeroed in on a woman filming near the stage. 

"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? You can enjoy it in real life," said the singer as the audience clapped. "Can you take your tripod down?"

Adele added, "This isn't a DVD, this is a real show. And I'd really like you to enjoy my show, because there are lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

The singer then angrily turned away in her gorgeous sparkling gown, muttering what looked like "Jesus" under her breath. YAS, QUEEN.  

Of course, Adele interacting with the audience isn't out of character for the singer, who regularly helps initiate proposals at her concerts and calls herself out for forgetting the lyrics to her own songs. But the moment was pretty reminiscent of the time the singer's friend, Jennifer Lawrence, jokingly chastised a reporter at the Golden Globes for being on his phone while speaking with her. 

"You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro," the actress deadpanned. "You can’t do that. You’ve got to live in the now."
