We’ve already witnessed fans boot up Pokémon Go at a Beyoncé concert, but another artist is trying to nip it in the bud before fans can even think about it.

According to Pitchfork, Rihanna addressed the crowd during her concert in France Saturday night about cellphone usage. It’s unclear if Rihanna actually saw anyone texting or playing Pokémon Go, but she directly called out the game, along with other things that might take the crowd out of the concert experience.

Naturally, at least one person caught the announcement on their phone.

“I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she said. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons [sic] up in this bitch.”

Chances are if Rihanna does catch her fans playing Pokémon Go she’ll call them out on it—but so will anyone nearby with a camera.
