Adam Lambert strikes a blow for good phone manners

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.

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