So people do throw rocks at things that shine.
The "Karma" singer made this more than clear while addressing the crowd at her Buenos Aires show on Sunday night. During the Evermore section of her Eras Tour set, Swift politely asked fans to stop hurling objects at the stage for the sake of both her and the dancers.
"Just because communication means having gentle, healthy boundaries, it really freaks me out when stuff gets thrown on the stage, because if it's on the stage then a dancer can trip on it," Swift told the crowd in a fan-recorded video shared on social media. "I love that you brought presents and that is so nice, but just can you please not throw them on the stage. I love you so much."

This week Swift kicked off the South American leg of her record-breaking world tour in Argentina, where she played three sold-out shows. The Sunday concert, originally set to take place on Friday, was delayed by rain.
While not wanting random objects hurled at her head is already a reasonable ask, Swift's concern is also well-timed. Throwing objects onstage during live music events has become a disturbing trend over the past year, with various recording artists slamming crowd members for putting them and their crew in danger.
In June, Bebe Rexha needed stitches after being hit in the face by one concertgoer's phone. The culprit was eventually arrested and charged with assault. Country singer Kelsea Ballerini was similarly struck by a projectile while performing less than two weeks later and in July, Harry Styles was hit in the eye during a performance in Vienna, Austria. A less dangerous but still strange incident saw Pink shell-shocked after discovering that a fan had thrown her a bag filled with their mother's ashes. "I don't know how I feel about this," she told the crowd, setting the bag down.
Earlier this year, Adele paused a performance of her Las Vegas residency to comment on the trend. "Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting f---ing show etiquette at the moment? People just throwing s--- on stage, have you seen them?"
Armed with t-shirt cannon, the "Skyfall" singer jokingly threatened the crowd. "I f---ing dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I'll f---ing kill you."
