So, there have been a lot of rumors circulating in reference to Britney’s Meet and Greets in the UK. We want to clear the air on some things in regard to those rumors.
FIRST, let’s all put our feet in Britney’s shoes for a hot minute. Imagine being Britney Spears: The iconic Queen of Pop (chills). Picture going on tour non-stop, with no breaks and no sleep. Imagine traveling all over the place, having to get used to the time change, having to deal with jet lag and most importantly, not getting to spend time with your children during the summer. Imagine trying to balance your work life with your personal life, anxiety, thinking of the next perfume to release, planning to release new music, a new Vegas deal coming up, feeling homesick. I think its pretty safe to say that we all get the picture.
Now, after all of that being said, imagine YOU (being Britney Spears) meeting almost one hundred fans a day during your meet and greets with NO break at all. Imagine after that, going on stage and performing a show. How do you think you would feel? The truth is.. we don’t know about you, but we are getting anxiety just thinking about it. The thought of meeting fifty to one hundred fans during a meet and greet alone is enough to cause an anxiety attack. Imagine all of the fans approaching you and imagine how fast the time would pass! All of that is exhausting and an absolutely crazy amount of work for one person on her own. Then, to add fuel to the fire, how would you feel if a stranger came up to you without asking your permission and touching you or hugging you. We would snap too!
The bottom line and the point that we are trying to make, is that you should never believe everything you read when it comes to “Bad” fan meet and greet experiences. Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. What we all might seem to forget, and that’s okay because we are human, is that Britney is shy and expects respect. We all want respect. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting respect. When we aren’t given the proper respect that we deserve, we get angry too. Don’t allow any dramatic experiences or one-sided stories freak you out or make you question meeting Britney!
Each and every one of us is our own person and we have to appreciate the fact that Britney feels and has emotions just like us. Put yourself in her shoes and try to understand her situation before judging. She is just as nervous about meeting us if not more. We know the true Britney and she LOVES the B-army so much!
