Melanie Martinez

We know Melanie Martinez loves her fans, so this came as a bit of a surprise tbh.

Yesterday, Shady Music Facts tweeted a short, fan-shot video of Melanie performing at a gig in Washington (28 March). In the video, Melanie is attempting to speak to the crowd. After being interrupted twice by the crowd, another fan shouts "I love you". Unfortunately for the fan, Melanie didn't take too kindly to being interrupted again.

She responds with a curt, "I'm sorry, I'm talking". Clearly upset, she says, "It's okay, I'm just going to go to the next song" before starting "Mrs Potato Head".

Melanie took to Twitter to clarify what was happening. 

There was a mixed reaction from fans. Many understood why Melanie was frustrated. Others felt she was being a little naive about the realities of getting thousands of (largely) teenagers to be quiet when they're stood in front of their hero.

Now, let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. Everyone, including Melanie, is allowed to have a bad day. Whether she was right or wrong, everybody snaps and maybe we need to try to understand Melanie's perspective a bit better before giving her a hard time.

What do you think? Was Melanie being rude or should everyone cut her some slack? Let us know in the comments.
