Meeting Taylor twice in London!
AH I feel like im the most blessed person ever, in the world, in the history of Taylor Swift fans.
So I got to meet Taylor twice this week, once after the Jonathon Ross show & once at BBC radio 1 :)
Okay, so..we decided, were not sure why, to go down to the itv studios on the OFF chance people may be turning up with spare tickets. There were for of us. Steph and I said that we would let our two other friends take priority as we had just recently seen Taylor 2 months prior at the livechat. Well, luck was on our side and we found tickets for all four of us, it was fabulous. We cried. (Of course). So we go into the show and taylor was charming and beautiful and wonderful as per usual and it was a really cool thing to experience! After the show, for a specific reason, NOT to meet taylor we went back to her hotel. I can assure you, it was not to meet Taylor but as we were there talking to who we needed to, Taylor turned up. Steph walked up past the paps and said 'Hi Taylor' and, yet again Taylor died when she saw her. The previous week she had told our friends in america that she was seeing us this week so we were just glad we managed to come through on that expectation! Then, a pap kinda started to walk in front of me and Taylor saw me and reached out. I didnt realise how HAPPY she looked to see me until I saw this picture a pap caught on camera of her after she hugged steph and was reaching to me...
That's my favourite picture in the world and i'm not even in it. I never knew I could make someone smile that much, let alone the one person I'd want to...
Okay, so despite the paps we actualy got to talk to taylor for a really, really long time! She kept saying how tired she was but as soon as we'd tell her to go inside she would start up talking about something else. We also got to show her our tattoo's that she drew and she was literally in shock that we actualy went through with it. We talked about our friend caylee and how we were glad they saw each other the previous week and she looked right at me in the eye and said "you are so sweet, you know that right?" and ah she is just so presh! We told her we were coming to the album release week etc also and she was so excited about that. We just really got time to fill her in and let her know how we were always going to be by her side whatever decistions she makes in life. I needed a hug from her so bad, I just recently moved into university and im having an awful time adjusting and she just made it all better. There is no physical way I could love her more. We got a group picture also which I really love, although I far prefer the pap version of it, purley due to the angle and my face hahaha...
and then we said goodbye and that we would see her soon :) It was really, really a blessing to get to see her again so soon after 'that' amazing day in Nashville :)
RIGHT SO basically our group picture, the security guard cut our friend out of the picture so she was DEVESTATED that her picture with taylor, well, wasnt even a picture. So, we knew she was going to be at radio 1 and because we felt so bad, we knew we had to go down to see if we could get debs her picture.
We arrived at 5.30am and Grimmy, the presenter arrived shortly after and was literally one of the nicest people i've ever come across. He came out when we were all lined up at the barrier and interviewed a few of us live on air, myself and steph included about us being invited to taylors house a few months earlier. I got a lot of tweets from people saying they heard me! Then, Taylor arrived.
I swear, our friend who was cut out the picture is the most generous person ever, because she suddenly changed her mind. She didnt want a single picture, she wanted a proper group one like we intended. Taylor made her way down the line, meeting every single person she could get to, and when she finally got to us debs said how she wanted a group picture but of us looking 'awkward'.... Taylor of course laughed and grabbed the camera and I was slightly cut out so she turned the camera so that we could see what was being taken so that we could all get in which I thought was really lovely of her to do....
Then, I kinda expected that to be it, but Taylor just kind of pranced right up to me and hugged me, looked me in the eye and told me she really loved me. I kinda stood there stunned purley cause I didnt expect for her to walk up to me as we came purley for Debs. She grabbed my phone and turned the camera round again and came in really close and we got a single picture together. It's actualy my favourite of us as were both pulling the same face and I don't look overly excited, but more composed!
Also, we told her security guard that he cut debs out of our group picture, and he was so shocked and apologetic about it, he went and personally got taylor to sign a new picture just for debs! I really liked him, he was such a nice guy!
This week was sooo perfect, we got to see taylor record the x factor and also see her perform 4 songs at the teen awards, including 'red' which is my new favourite!! :)
I'm so blessed. Honestly, im not sure what I do to deserve all this but im so grateful
