Singer Lalah Hathaway has asked her audience members to stop recording video at her shows. In a now-deleted Instagram post, the singer wrote, "My people. You are not at the zoo. You are not the paparazzi. Put your phone down at my show. Please don't record me, or take pictures of my show." "Do not stream my show or instaLive my work. It is SUPER distracting, and rude to the people around you. Your flash is annoying and draws me out of my space -- which I am working to create -- for YOU." Lalah goes on to say, "If you paid for a ticket, it makes no sense to me at all why you would watch the show thru a cell phone... but that is your business. Going forward, I have a zero tolerance policy toward phones....What I give to you is from my heart -- and is MY intellectual property." "If you do NOT get it -- please stay home. Your energy is not welcomed, and you will be asked to leave -- and escorted out of the venue -- WITH your cellphone. I am truly over it at this point."
