Yeah, I was one of those crazy Brit fans, I saw the movie, owned all the albums, shopped on eBay for imported singles and rare posters. Blah, blah, blah. I saw her in concert, had amazing seats and thought that was the closest I'd ever get. Then when she put out her song "Me Against the Music" she was doing a performance outside TRL and she walked past me, like an inch away and waved to me and I'm not even kidding, I almost peed my pants.
So... fast forward to the release of her new album a month later. To celebrate the release of "In The Zone" she was doing all sorts of stuff, including a meet and greet at Virgin Megastore Times Square. So I waited online over night, and then went home, got dressed to the nines, and went back to the store to get online and meet Brit.
Now, this is when she had like made out with Madonna, and was a party girl a la Paris Hilton, and everyone was all about Britney. So they shut down the store. The only people inside were her fans, Britney, Virgin employees and her team and people. So I waited, and waited. And, I had to go to the bathroom, because I was so afraid I would actually pee my pants when I got to speak to her. Especially after last month's run in. So when I did, I got to pass her. And, there she was. She was beautiful, sitting behind a table with Larry Rudolph, wearing a tan tank top blouse with a kabalah bracelet.
So, I eventually get up there. They've been playing her album over and over, and of course Everytime was on, which made it even more like I was meeting God. And, I walk up, and she looks up to me and say "Hello" in this Britney voice that I had heard only on television before. And, her guard at the time who was so nice hands her my three album covers. And she goes "Oh my Lawdie! Three copies" and I said "Yeah, it's that good" (and it was/is stfu) and she was like "aww thank you sweetie". So anyway, I'm in shock and I'm just looking at her. So I go "Oh my God I love you, I am so nervous" and she laughs and turns to Larry and goes "Awww I love you too, you are too cute" and I blushed. So I ask "Britney, can I shake your hand?" and she extends her hand and accidentally writes all over it. So she goes "Oh man, I am a mess" and goes come here and reaches over the table and hugs me.
OH MY GOD. I swear I nearly died. I really did get a good impression from her, she might've been/ might be a bitch sometimes, but she really seemed happy to meet her fans on this day. And, I hope she sorts out everything in her life, and gets better. Seeing her now, compared to the smiling, bright, shiney Brit of just 4 years ago breaks my heart.
I've met more people, but saw Britney on the header and didn't see any stories about her on here. Plus with Angelina and Brad right below me, I needed something hot to keep up.
