My M4L in NYC!
Last week on 6th of April 2012, I finally had my M4L with Nicki!! :)
Just a lil backstory: I couldn't meet Nic when she came UK in January 2011 cuz that was the same week I was on holiday in Spain :( Then last November I booked a 2 week trip to the US. I was so paranoid Nic was gonna be in the UK again when I was away in America but obviously something went right for me for onceee!! :) It was about a week or so before I left that I found out Nic would be performing at The Today Show. I was freaking OUT. But I didn't want to get too excited incase she pulled out or something stopped me from going...!
Anyhoo, so my friend and I arrived in NYC on Thursday 5th April and we didn't know what time to get there for! We decided to get up at 2am and we got there for like 3.30am. Having just left Florida, we didn't realise how COLD it would be :P We queued for a while and got talking to some other barbz, who were excited that we were from the UK haha :)
Eventually we were allowed into the plaza and all the barbz went straight for the studio window. Nic did her interview and her performance. It was sooo much fun being there for her performance because the barbz were going wild and singing along with her. It was just kinda crappy having to watch her through a window!! I was hoping she might come out onto the plaza, because Kim Kardashian was on that day too and she came out. But Nicki didn't.
After it, we decided to go to the side door, as we had seen her go in there earlier. The barbz were there too and security was playing with us cuz they kept telling us she had already left, even though there were 2 big cars waiting at the door. Then one of the cars drove away and suddenly the cops and security told us she was leaving through the underground parking lot and they left. The paparazzi left cuz they fell for the trick but I wasn't being fooled. I know what these people are like :P
Anyway, eventually Nic came out. I was freaking outttt. It was amaze getting to see her so close! She went over to the barbz at the other side and I was scared she wasn't gonna be able to talk to us but she she came over and started signing and talking to people. Eventually I managed to talk to her and I was like "Nickiiiii, I'm here from London!! Well actually Scotland!" Haha. And she looked up and I was like "I've come from the UK to see you!" and she just stopped and looked into my eyes and was like "Really? You are?! Okay, what do you want boo? You want a picture? You want your boob signed?!" and I was like "Omg, I'd love a pictureeee" *freaking out* (I also really wanted my boob signed but I had a tshirt on lol) So she signed my Allure magazine cover. But then some security guy kept putting his arm between me and Nic, and she was bombarded my things to sign and cameras. So I just kinda stood there and she did her thing, and she was moving away so I was like "dayum, not gonna get a pic..." but then after a couple minutes she stopped and turned back to me and was like "Come on babe, let's do this. Let's get a picture!!" So I got a picture on my phone, cuz my trusty camera died earlier on -_- and then I was like "can I get a hug" and she said "of course!" and then as she hugged me she was like "thank you so much for coming babe, it really means a lot to me" and I swear I died.
Can't really remember what happened next except she moved on to other barbz, and the people I had been talking to were like "Omg, UK!! I'm so happy for you!!!" and they started hugging me and then I just started crying haha. I could not (and still can not) believe my dreams had been made. After YEARS I finally got to meet my queen and she was everything I thought she would be and MORE :')
I absolutely can not wait to meet her again!! I've got VIP M&G tickets to Manchester so I am stoked to get the chance again to see her.
I still can't get over that I had my Moment 4 Life, and in NYC of all places!! :)
"This is my moment, I waited all my life, I can tell it's time, driftin' away I'm one with the sunset, I have become alive"
