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! 😉
