'Put that damn camera down': Beyonce tells off fan at Atlanta gig

Star angry at fan taping Mrs Carter tour gig


'Put that damn camera down': Beyonce tells off fan at Atlanta gig Photo:

Beyoncé told off a member of the audience midway through a performance of her song 'Irreplaceable' during a recent US gig. See a video of the incident below.

The singer, who is currently on her Mrs Carter World Tour, was trying to get the crowd to join in with the lyrics of her hit 'Irreplaceable' at a show in Atlanta, getting people to chant 'To the left, to the left' when she came across a fan not giving his all.

In a video recorded by a different member of the crowd, we can see Beyonce patrolling the front of the stage motivating people to get involved by offering them the mic. After praising another crowd member for her singing she offers the mic to a man whose performance doesn't deliver. She immediately responds "See you can't even sing because you too busy taping" and then continues "I'm right in your face baby, you gotta seize this moment! put that damn camera down!'"

After this she gives him another chance and he repeats the chant, to which Beyoncé confirms "that's much better" despite it sounding about as good an effort as his first.

Fans will recall that the former Destiny's Child star is no stranger to shouting at people, previously incorporating the improvised lyrics 'someone's getting fired' when the lights failed during a show in 2010.

Beyoncé has been working on a follow up to her 2011 album '4'. US producer Diplo has been working on the new album but commented that some of his material had possibly been scrapped in order to re think the sound. Ne-Yo, who has also collaborated on the album, confirmed that it is still on the way and that fans will have to be patient.
