Spotlight on #BritneyArmy member Robert James! @britneyspears @bobbyjamesxPosted by Anthony Steven in November 8th, 2015
We LOVE featuring our fans on our MainPage because that is what Britney-Galaxy is about, the BRITNEY ARMY and of course BRITNEY SPEARS!
This month we are featuring 3 lucky fans that follow us on our social media accounts and have been VERY supportive of Britney-Galaxy. Let’s meet our second fan for this month: Robert James!
Robert is from Chicago, Illinois. He became a Britney fan when he was 9 years old and was in “awe” hearing Baby One More Time when it came out. Its all history from there.
1) When did you become a Britney Spears fan?
I became a Britney fan when I was 9 years old. I had been playing with some friends at the park and we had a radio with us. I heard this piano play and catchy song come on, which happened to be Baby One More Time. I became obsessed! I didn’t hear the song again until I caught the video on TV. At that point I was hooked on Britney.
2) What is your favorite song?
Its hard to choose one favorite song from her catalog. I feel like certain songs are my favorite because of the memories I attach to her music, or the choreography that comes along. If I had to choose one though, it’d be Someday (I’ll Understand) its such a sacred video and beautiful song that’s so different from her commercially successful pop hits.
3) Why are you a Britney Spears fan?
I’m a Britney fan because she helped keep me out of trouble. We all go through adversity and some people turn to bad things to cope. For me, I learned to be myself and found a passion for dance through Britney. She’s so humble for being such a huge star and that helped keep me grounded in my life. When she went through her struggles, I loved her even more because she showed us that she’s human just like the rest of us. I’m a fan because she taught me to be a survivor. She had gone through some tough times and managed to survive it! She’s learned from the past and has moved on. She once said, “the world keeps moving and we keep moving with it.” That quote keeps me strong and a dedicated fan.
4) Has Britney Spears ever helped you with a struggle or anything in life?
Yes!!! Many times I wanted to give up on life or just complain. But when I see the things Britney has been through I think, “my life is easy compared to hers.” You never see Britney complain about her struggles or blame others. I learned that from her. Britney and her dancing kept me away from making bad decisions like drugs or harming myself. Britney is my anti drug lol!
5) Has Britney spears taught you anything that helps you in life?
Britney taught me to always be myself no matter what people say. You have to have thick skin to survive this crazy place we call the world and life. She said in For the Record, “I go through life like a karate kid.” Some might think that sounds silly, to me it sounded like she meant she goes through life ready to defend herself and fight any struggle that may come up. I loved the quote and had it tattooed on my wrist.
6) What is your favorite Britney Tour?
My favorite tour was the Circus Tour simply because it was such a great comeback tour and I hadn’t seen her live since her DWAD tour. It was such a treat to see Britney back at it doing what she loves and does best.
7) What is your favorite Britney photo shoot?
I really loved the photos from her Britney Jean album. They were signature Britney, but had a little taste of a more mature Britney to them. Its a transition that I think she made smoothly. She can still appeal to a young crowd, but she’s also a woman in her 30s now. That photo shoot really captured her in a beautiful, mature light.
8) Have you ever met Britney?
I was lucky enough to meet Britney on August 14, 2015 at her 100th Piece of Me show.
9) If you met Britney what was it like?
Britney was so good to me! She asked me questions and was really engaging which I was really surprised with. When you’re meeting so many fans night after night and hearing the same thing over and over, you’d think it’d get old to her. She was the complete opposite. She looked like she was having so much fun with each fan. I hope I can meet her one more time before she leaves Vegas!
10) Which tours have you been too?
I have been to Crazy2k, Dream Within a Dream, Circus tour twice, Femme Fatale, and I’ve been to Piece of Me three times. To this day I wish I still could’ve seen the Onyx Hotel tour live 🙁
11) Name one thing that pops into your head when you hear Britney Spears name
Living legend 🙂
12) If Britney spears was reading this right now what would you want her to know?
I’d want her to know that she has changed the lives of so many and I will forever be grateful for what she saved me from without even knowing me. I wouldn’t be the compassionate dance teacher that I am if it wasn’t for her.
It’d also be a dream if she somehow saw a little video I took of one of my many classes that I’ve taught her choreography in 🙂 my most recent one was working with little girls and taught them Pretty Girls. Even children love her! Here’s a link to my girls performing Britney’s iconic moves 🙂
Robert also has a VERY special talent. He taught a dance class to his students a couple of weeks ago and added a little special Brit-Touch to the class. Check out the video below:
Teach them while they are young Robert!
Thanks for being our 2nd fan of the month Robert! You are a FLAWLESS fan and thanks for being an amazing fan!
