Oh Adele, let us count the ways we love thee. First you set up a secret Twitter account so you could moan about stuff, then you swung past the set of Neighbours, and now you've bollocked one of your own security guards for making people sit down while watching you sing.

Bravo. *Insert clapping emoji*

If you've been to a live gig and had to endure the injustice of only being able to buy a seat, rather than a spot in the illustrious – and infinitely better – standing section, then you'll know that you basically end up standing the entire time anyway.

As you boogie away, while trying not to to spill any of your ludicrously overpriced venue beverage, you'll also probably be told to sit down by spoilsports behind you, or burly security guards.

The 28-year-old 'Hello' singer called out one of the security guards near the front of the show after he told fans to sit down.

She barked down the mic: "Excuse me sir, I know you work here, but can you stop telling people to sit down.

"This is a music show, if people can't see then they can stand up and if you're moaning about people dancing, then what the f**k have you come to a show for?

"If I see one more person being told to sit down, I swear to god! Excuse my language."

Now we know not everyone can't physically stand at gigs and you obviously should be courteous if that's the case – but otherwise...

If you can't nab your space in the standing section where you can get sweaty, spill beers and form moshpits (well, maybe not for Adele), then dance in your seat because the lady herself says it's fine, dagnabbit.

However, some fans were a bit divided by Adele's demands after the video was shared to Twitter:

Meanwhile another shared a video from another recent show in Brisbane, where other fans behind demanded that they sat down.

So where do you stand – or sit – on the great gig seat debate? Vote in the poll below and let us know.
