Adam Lambert strikes a blow for good phone manners

February 16, 2010 |  1:40 pm

Glam fans Adam Lambert is no stranger to going against the cultural grain. Even if that cultural grain is the one that makes people think it's OK to talk on a cellphone any dang place they happen to get a call. 

Including in the middle of an intimate, live acoustic music performance.

Lambert was recording a set Monday for Iheartradio's Stripped series when phone-yapping from the audience apparently distracted him enough that he stopped the song and asked (politely, mind you) that the person end the call.

"You're not watching TV, honey, it's a live show!" 

Watch the video. It's short -- and very sweet.
