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!
It’s meet and greet story time bitch! Check out Britney Army fan, Stephanie Wilkinson, meet and greet story with Queen B:
Hi my name is Stephanie Wilkinson, and I had the pleasure of meeting Britney on 7/20 at the Borgata in AC!!! I really cannot put into words how it felt to meet the person I have looked up to since I was a little girl. She was my first concert when I was in kindergarten, and I was of course rocking a Britney backpack from day 1. To this day I still get chills/hype when I hear “Oops” or “Baby One More Time” (love me some classic Brit). Anyways, I saw Britney front row last summer in Vegas which was an amazing experience, but unfortunately meet and greets were sold out the night I was there. I left the show wanting more but was sad knowing I couldn’t make it back to Vegas before her residency was over. So I was beyond thrilled when I learned she was touring and coming so close to home (philly area). As soon as I saw she was coming to Bethlehem and AC, tickets were purchased and I knew I HAD to meet her while I had the chance. I bought these tickets back in December so I had been looking forward to this for quite some time, and before I knew it the day had finally come. I was shaking with excitement while putting my makeup on because I just couldn’t believe I was about to meet my idol in a few very short hours, it just didn’t seem real. It still doesn’t seem real!!! While standing outside waiting to go in to meet Britney I thought I knew exactly what I was going to say and that I would be calm cool and collected. Well…the second I walked in and saw Britney all those thoughts escaped my mind and I was just so incredibly star struck that I couldn’t form words. She was even more beautiful in person!!! I walked over and asked for a hug and just told Britney how much I love her and her music, and that I’ve looked up to her since I was little. She thanked me and was so incredibly sweet. I was so sad that my time with her was over and wish I had another chance. Luckily I got called back in to retake the photo so I was able to catch that extra time with Britney which I cherished so greatly. The VIP guide made a comment about how we matched since we were both wearing pink and had blonde hair, and we shared a laugh over it. Overall this experience was something I will never forget, and if you are a true Britney fan I highly recommend doing the meet and greet-it’ll mean the world to you!
Glad you had a great time Stephanie!! Thanks for sharing your story with us 🙂
Flawless Britney Army Fan, Kevin Williams, met Queen B last night! Check out his story below:
I was already anxious before my long-awaited meet and greet with Britney for one reason: my name. Never in my life had I wished so much my parents didn’t name me KEVIN. So I thought: I have to stand out in a better way.
Our VIP tour consisted of about 25 people. Our host, who gave us the backstage tour and answered our questions, was amazing. Then came time for the big moment.
I should warn you if you plan to do a meet and greet: They are FAST. Like, blink, and you’re done. I could tell from the rate at which people were going in and coming out of the room that this moment was going to be brief, albeit amazing.
When I turned the corner and saw her, she was standing there poised, engaged, and of course beautiful. I said, “Hi! How are you?” She smiled and said “Hi! I like your shirt!”
I said, “Oh, thank you!” as we turned to the camera for our photo. Then, knowing I only had a couple of seconds left, I told her what I wanted to say:
“I just wanted you to know your first album was the first CD I ever got — for my 10th birthday,” I said as her security guard step toward me to move it along. “That was a time in my life when my parents were separating, my dad almost died, and I was bullied in school — and your music was my only safe place. So thank you.”
“That’s so nice! Thank you so much!” she said.
She listened to me the whole time, eyes locked on mine, even as the staff tried to keep things running on time.
I’m so grateful I made the most of a big moment. I had been waiting to tell her that for 20 years and her attention meant the world to me. The photo is just the cherry on top!
Thank you so much Kevin for sharing your story with us! We are so happy you had an awesome experience!
Britney Fan “Sean” With Britney Spears At MGM National Harbor In Washington D.C.
We have a flawless meet and greet story of a huge Britney fan “Sean” meeting the legendary miss Britney Spears!
Here it is:
Britney inspires me because she is a self-made superstar that has managed to sustain an exceptional amount of humility and appears to value what is most important (to me) – family. I respect how hard she’s worked to get where she is, she’s exceptional at what she does, and I love the way she treats people from all walks of life with kindness. Those actions are inspiring to me, and that’s the type of person I want to be. I should probably tell her that one day 😊. Now to what I did tell her…
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting my favorite artist of all time twice in Vegas, however 3 is a charm, 2 is not the same. I met her around the VMA’s (2015 & 2016). Seeing Britney on the VMA’s has always been a highlight, so it was a dream within itself to meet her within that timeframe. Last time I saw Britney, she released “Glory” that week, wore a shirt I bought her on my 30th birthday, and invited our group to the Today Show filming. Let’s be real, I was Lucky in Vegas, but I had to take the gamble in DC.
The day of my show, I ran into Brit’s dad, said a quick hi, and gave him what I brought for Britney. The backstage tour was OK (Fe spoiled us with love, knowledge, energy and funny stories in Vegas so she was missed), seeing the wardrobe and the team was still a highlight for me. My M&G wardrobe was a t-shirt saying “3 is a charm” with a graphic that could also be read as “B is a charm”, and a picture of young me on the back.
When it came to Britney, I walked up shook her hand, and introduced myself. She shook my hand and said “nice to meet you”. I explained my shirt to her, essentially saying it was my 3rd POM show, 3rd time meeting her, and I really enjoyed Vegas (left out how 3 is also in my top 3 songs). I also let her know I was very excited that she liked that PokeMom shirt I got her, and that she wore it on my 30thbirthday. She was polite, attentive, thanked me and gave me the verbal and physical queues that I could keep going. I showed her the back of my shirt which had me as a middle school kid, and I said “I’ve liked you since I was this little guy” – I wasn’t facing her, so I couldn’t see her initial reaction, but her team though it was hilarious – and she thought it was sweet. I had to retake my initial picture because my hand gesture was out of the picture, but once we finished with the retake, we exchanged a hug, and I wished her good luck, and she told me to enjoy the show. Fast forward, the whole group had to retake our photos, which meant I got to meet her again! The group was ecstatic and filled with positive vibes – and everyone was coming out with remarkable stories and letting me know she switched sides. While I was in line people kept making jokes like “4’s a charm”, “5’s a charm” to me, so by the time I walked into Britney I said “Yay, I get to meet you again! Looks like 5’s a charm!” and she said something like “Yes it is.” (started losing track of the dialog cause because I was so excited at that point – probably can see in the photo). I also told her that I forgot to mention that I gave something to her dad to give to her. I wanted to keep it short and sweet this time. We took our photo. I told her to have fun, and I’ll be in the front row dancing. She said her goodbyes, and I walked out smitten. The show was fantastic, I was front and center which was wayyy worth it. When I saw Larry R. briefly after the show he asked if I enjoyed the show, noted that he saw me dancing. I definitely loved the show (keep adding those Glorious tunes) and was dancing. It was a great experience – and I cannot wait to see her again!
Sean also adds “team B made a joke that 5 is a charm could be a new song”
We absolutely LOVE that story! Iconic meet and greet picture is iconic! Thanks for sending in your story, Sean! Hope you get to meet Britney again! 😉
It’s Meet and Greet story time bitch! Check out Britney Army member, Ernesto Gutierrez Lezama, meet and greet story with the Queen:
Hi! My name is Ernesto Gutierrez Lezama! I am a Shoe designer living in the big Apple!
So it was my turn for the meet and greet. When i was walking in, I noticed that britney was staring at the floor, so i started talking! I said “Britney hi” I told her “thank you for your music and for being you, you’re an inspiration to me and mean the world”! The photographer was starting to take the first picture! The first picture did not come out so great so I had to go back in for the second picture. We finished the second photo but i turned around and said “Britney can i give you kiss on the cheek” she looked at me up and down, then looked at me in the eye and said “YES”!
Her team wasn’t happy about it because i was already in my 3rd picture ( only can take 3) so i turned around to the crew and said “she said yes”! So i closed my eyes and kissed her soft and beautiful cheek. We did the other shoots, but the one that was selected is my favorite!
This picture gathers 20 years of memories into one very personal item! Thank you Britney for everything!
What a cute story! Thanks for sharing it with us!!!
