I've met Katy a handful of times. Since I live in New York, it's really easy to meet her because she's usually here to promote and do photo shoots! She's honestly one of the most genuine people I've ever met! She's so kind and caring and she's always excited to see her kitties out waiting for her.
Every time I meet her I feel as if it's my first. It's like your heart beats so quick that you feel as if it's going to burst out of you and you just want to tell her that you love her so much and how much you appreciate her and all that she's done for you, but all that comes out of your mouth is, "hey!" Ugh, that feeling is honestly the best feeling in the world! It's a combination of excitement, anxiety, and this great deal of elation!
Here's a few times I've met her during the Prism era!
The first picture is the very first time she promoted Roar! It was the week after my birthday and I remember the night before she had tweeted, "come see me at z100, there's a surprise!" so all the New York KatyCats lined up outside the famous radio station in hopes they'd get a glimpse of Katy and boy did they! She came out of the gold Prism truck and basically took a picture with everyone! I wish I'd been there, but I was at work
(the moment I left work, I heard from a friend of mine that she left the radio station) I was devastated, obviously. However, my friend called me and told me that Tamra had told them that she would be at another radio station and we should go there instead. As soon as I heard it, I got on the first cab and headed down to see the love of my life! I got to the station and I saw her car and I saw Tam outside and she told us that Katy would be coming down soon, but we should come into the garage because they didn't want to start a mob outside the station. So we did and a few minutes later Katy came down in her little red dress and the first thing she did was pay with my friends afro! She LOVES that afro! Since it was a group of three it was very intricate and quite! She came up to me and she was like, "hey gurl, haven't seen you in months! how are you?" after that we had a chat with her and then she was told that she would have to say goodbye to us because she had to go to another radio station to promote Roar so we all hugged her and she took pictures with us and said goodbye :-(
The second picture & the third as well was when she went to the V Magazine building in New York to I guess talk about her photo shoot? We knew she didn't actually go to a photo shoot because she was only in the building for a short amount of time. When she came out she was really excited to see us and told us that she missed us all and she was working really hard putting the final touches on the PWT! We told her that we were really excited and she was like, "I would be too if I wasn't being driven crazy by it!!!!" So she took pictures with us and after she took a picture with everyone she comes to me and she's like, "a polaroid? so chic" after that she chatted with us and talked to us a bit about the tour and then said goodbye because she had to wake up early to go shoot her V cover. But before she left she asked me if she could see my polaroid and I was like yeah! And she was like, "I hate it! Retake!!!" So we took the second one (which looks the same to me, but what the queen wants, the queen gets!) She hugged me and then she got into the car and drove off!
The last picture was the night before she hosted SNL! And the day before she shot Entertainment Weekly! It was right after the W Magazine photo shoot. I got really lucky this day! Someone was having a wedding at the hotel she was shooting in so they decided to post a picture of it on instagram and I was searching all kinds of things on twitter & instagram, "Katy Perry" "Just saw Katy Perry" "Photoshoot" and I happened to stumble across this picture and it was of bradford and to be honest, I almost cried! I took a cab to where she was and I saw her driver there, so I waited! I waited about 5 hours and she finally came out! It was probably one of the best one on ones I've had with her! She looked so gorgeous! And I couldn't stop telling her that!
I hope you, like me get to see Katy one day! You all deserve it! And I hope I get to read about it! Soon!
