British pop singer Adele has warned her fans that she will not accept any type of object thrown at her on stage, in response to a recent spate of incidents which have seen performers injured by such hurling. .
“I challenge you to throw something at me, I will kill you”
In June, in New York, singer Bebe Rexha had to cut short a concert after receiving a phone call that caused a minor eye injury. In other recent incidents, country artist Kelsea Ballerini was targeted with a bracelet on stage in Idaho, while even more bizarrely, singer Pink picked up a small bag containing the ashes of a fan’s mother.
Several actors lamented that so many moments captured by onlookers on their phones and which later went viral on social networks ran the risk of encouraging other similar gestures. In residence in Las Vegas, where she performs every Friday and Saturday, megastar Adele warns she won’t take it for granted.
According to a video circulating on TikTok and Twitter, she sarcastically said, “Hey, I challenge you, I challenge you to throw something at me. I will kill you.” Himself holding a T-shirt cannon, he tossed one of these gifts into the crowd before adding with a laugh: “Stop throwing things at performers!”. This trend is not new. Late last year, Harry Styles got ‘Skittle’ candy in his eye and more recently a bouquet of flowers on his face.
“Just Enjoy The Music”
American pop and R&B singer Charlie Puth recently tweeted, “The tendency to throw things at performers when they’re on stage needs to stop.” He said, “It’s disrespectful and it’s very dangerous. Please just enjoy the music.”
