What will you do when you meet an icon? Will you gush all over them? Will you scream and shout like a crazy person? Or will you act like a total dummy like I did? If ever you get to meet your idol, I hope you act better than I did when I met Madonna.
Yes, you read that right! I've actually met THE Madonna once and it was... whew! I don't even have the words for it. She was as glorious as I thought. Beautiful, magnetic, alluring, imposing, and even intimidating. She was very much the diva that I thought she was, and I mean that in a good way. Though I understand why other people would get the wrong idea of her, I didn't find her too bitchy or anything. She was fierce, sure, but she wasn't a c*nt!
Now, you're all probably thinking—"how did I meet Madonna?" Well, it was during a fan meet. I've seen her countless times when I would go to red carpet events and fangirl over her from a distance, but this was the first time I met her in person. And of course, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to get her autograph. It's what fan meets are all about, right?
Anyway, back to that moment. I thought I prepared myself enough to meet Madonna. I've been a huge fan of hers since I was a teenager. I've bought practically all her albums, watched all her videos (music videos AND the movies she starred in), and attended most of the concerts she held in my hometown. You'd think I'd be comfortable seeing her after all this time, right? Well, actually meeting her is a whole other animal. I was covered in goosebumps the moment I heard her voice in real life. And when I stood in front of her, I barely caught my breath.
You know the "hamana hamana hamana" thing people do when they're so flustered? Well, I actually did that in front of her. I sounded like an effing cartoon and it was a miracle that Madonna didn't throw me out. Instead, she was a complete professional. She just smiled, signed my posters, hugged me, and I went on. It was more than I deserved, that's for sure!
In any case, even when I acted like a fool in front of my favorite pop star ever, it remains one of the most memorable and favorite moments of my life. Actually getting to meet my idol is something I'll never replace. Heck, I'm willing to go through all that humiliation again if it means I get to meet Madonna a second time around!
