Kelly Clarkson Has Total Fangirl Moment When Meeting Cher
Cailyn Finkel 12/4/2018
Kelly Clarkson is an undeniable American icon. She's a talented singer, spectacular Broadway performer and a devoted mother. She first worked her way into the spotlight with her stint on American Idol and hasn't looked back since!
Even though Kelly's clearly a superstar in her own right, she was at a loss for words when she met her childhood hero on the red carpet recently. The interaction between Kelly and the megastar showed her truly humble nature and down-to-earth personality!
What a sweetheart!
While Kelly is always charting tops for today's top hits, her favorite genres of music are in the past. She told ET Canada that she loves music from the 1990s, in particular!
"I'm a kid of the '90s. I mean that's my fave style of music and in the '90s women were ruling...
I love what 2017 was offering and all these powerful women coming out. I think people get nervous and think we're in competition and... I never get fearful of that. It's an awesome time... with so many great records going on."
But there is one artist she loves more than all of the 1990s music in the world - and that person is Cher.
Kelly recently bumped into Cher on the red carpet and couldn't keep her excitment down. As soon as she noticed the singer was a few steps behind, she gushed to Extra's AJ Calloway about how much she loved her!
"I hear Cher; she's right behind me right now. I can't even talk about it. I've never met her. Don't do anything either, it'll make me so nervous I'll wanna cry."
Cher inched closer and Kelly couldn't keep it together any longer. She approached the star, saying:
"Hi! I'm Kelly Clarkson! Nice to meet you! I have never met you, I've been talking about you this whole time going, 'She's right behind me!'"
Instead of being off-put by yet another enthusiastic fan, Cher reached in for a hug and said she was pleased to meet Kelly as well:
"I'm so happy to meet you!"
As soon as Kelly's nerves settled and her hands stopped shaking from excitement, she posted about her surprise encounter with none other than Cher!
"I met Cher!!! My life is better than everyone else's today!"
We can't help but agree with Kelly! Our days would be better than everyone else's is we were able to meet such a talented artist!
