Last week I had the opportunity to meet one of the biggest pop stars in the world – Katy Perry. Sheri from This Bird’s Day invited me as her guest as part of her #PGMoms and @Covergirl campaign.
What do you wear to meet Katy Perry?
And kitty shoes!
And hair extensions!
Sheri recently grew her personal blog into a lifestyle magazine for Canadian women, and I’ve been contributing travel articles to her (she’s now accepting contributors if you’re interested in writing for TBD). We enjoyed a great dinner at Cactus Club brainstorming ideas for the magazine and talking about the ins and outs of blogging.
Then we headed to Rexall Place, were escorted backstage, and waited in the elaborate prism lounge for Katy Kat to appear. Sheri and I were joined by a few contest winners, as well as a child from Make a Wish. One of her staff let me know that even when they don’t do meet and greets with fans or contest winners, Katy always makes time for Make a Wish kids. How fantastic is that?
In a blur, Katy strutted in, resplendent in shimmering silver, and greeted each of us individually. She asked us questions or complimented us (me on my kitty shoes), and we got a hug and a photo.
Then we were escorted back up to fantastic seats where we watched her elaborate and fantastically entertaining show.
I was only able to sing along to I Kissed a Girl and Fireworks, but I definitely enjoyed the show and all the associated excitement of meeting a huge star.
And yes, my kids are super jealous.
