Oh, I've seen tons of amazing behavior.

2. I went to an American Idol concert in 2010. It had become a fun part of the concert to throw bras and boas on stage when Adam Lambert was doing his last number, during which he danced around the entire stage and interacted with the audience. Lambert always enjoyed it when fans threw fun stuff on to the stage during the interaction and it became an anticipated tradition. However, at this particular concert, during his opening number, someone threw a large ******* right at him, hitting him hard in the leg.  It fell to the stage floor and without missing a beat of singing, he immediately kicked it off. He said later that he was quite angry about it and I don't blame him.  It was appallingly disrespectful and I don't blame him for being angry. Certainly a perfomer with less stage experience might have been totally thrown off kilter by it and even for someone with his experience, how disconcerting to be hit by something hard, especially during the opening number when you're trying to establish yourself on the stage.  In addition, a lot of children go to the Idol concerts.  I have to admit that I've wondered if it was a hater rather than a fan who did that.

It was a fan, I have friends who were at that concert and the fan in question tweeted a pic of the toy.  People were still throwing stuff on stage last year, but not as often because of the dancers.

What was thrown? I don't follow American Idol so have no idea.

I'm assuming it was an adult toy?

Yeah, saw him interviewed about it later though.  He was only mad because it hit him.  He played with whips and such on stage at other stops.

About two years ago DH and I went to see Lewis Black.  The venue had a cash bar and there were a few attendees who were "toasted".  I can only imagine what a nightmare this would be for a comedian.  One woman, in particular, was veeeeerrrrrry drunk and kep shouting random stuff at Mr. Black.  Someone else in the audience yelled "She's wasted!" and his response was "You think I don't know that?".  Security removed her.

On the other hand, if anyone can put an unruly drunk in their place, it's Lewis Black.  I wouldn't want to be on the end of one of his toungue lashings!

BTW: So jealous, LOVE Lewis Black.

I love watching comedians handling hecklers.  One of the funniest was a guy who really wasn't all that when he was onstage but emceed the rest of the night.  One of his jokes fell so flat that a particular heckler kept yelling the punchline whenever he'd open his mouth.  Finally the comedian turned to the heckler and said, "Sir, can I buy you a drink?"  Heckler was all for it until comedian said, "Barkeep, can you get a vinegar and water for the d**chebag at the bar?"

Several years ago DH and I went to see Billy Connolly in London.  He has a reputation for marking people that disturb his set.  An older couple came in about half an hour after he'd started and he spotted them immediately as they started rudely shoving their way along the row to their seats, without so much as an 'Excuse me' and the seat were dead centre of the row.  So Billy jumped down off the stage and 'escorted' them to their seats complete with a running commentary.  The couple didn't dare so much as move in their seats until the interval.

I'm a pro wrestling fan too, and have been over to a few Wrestlemanias in the states.  The behaviour of some of the girls there... Sheesh!  It's easy to see why they're termed 'ring rats'.

DS is a big Wrestlemania fan as well.  He asked me once why the "ring rats" act like their clothes were too small and did girls really know all of those curse words.  Sometimes his naivete makes me smile.

I saw a fan climb over a couple of rows of seats to get on stage.  She was screaming "I love you" and something else.  Two guards caught her before she got anywhere close to the performer.

This is random, I don't like celebrity gossip, but I'm incredibly annoyed about all the death threats to Justin Beiber's alleged baby momma on my fb. My friends are 22 and older, so I don't know whether I'm amused or disturbed anyone took this seriously. I'm sure it's far worse to those who have younger daughters. Very rude and breaches social networking etiquette toward a total stranger. "Beliebers" are serious fans.

Why call Selena Gomez his baby mamma?  Honest question.  She's his girlfriend.  They like each other.  I've seen no signs of unexpected or inappropriate behavior from either one.  No pregnancy...  So, why baby mama?

It's not Selena Gomez. Another girl has come out that J.B. fathered her child and fans have gone off the wall. Or I guess, on the FB wall, and are very threatening. I just think it's rude to throw out death threats like it's no problem at all to a total stranger.

Oh, you JUST think it's rude to throw out death threats?  Gee, gosh and golly!  Gotta agree with you on that one.  Dang. 

I'd have to say I don't understand the whole death threats from ANYBODY other than religious and political crazies towards each other, and even then, I don't agree, I just understand that crazies are going to behave crazily, and I'll keep myself as far away as possible.  Making death threats over something like Justin Beiber's potential baby?  Get a LIFE, people!  Really, get yourselves a life, and stay off the news!

Minmom3, no need for all the snark.  If you have nothing nice to post, please don't post it.
