It’s hard to believe that celebrities are just like us. Those articles in magazines that show famous people grocery shopping or paying parking meters do not make me feel any closer to Beyoncé. But if there is one that that transcends fame, it’s the feeling you get when you meet an idol.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an Oscar-winning actress or musical superstar. When you meet your favorite celebrity, you immediately go into fangirl mode. Demi Lovato only got a shoutout from her idol, and she was still left in awe.
We Didn’t Add The Heart, Anna Kendrick Did

Yes, of course meeting Beyoncé is the first one on this list. I’m willing to bet money that even the Queen of England would be in awe if she met Bey.
Anna Kendrick had a brief encounter with Bey in 2014, and you can tell from her face that she’s holding back tears. In all honesty, I’m impressed she could even stay standing in Bey’s presence.
Emma Stone Didn’t Even Physically Meet Mel B And Started Crying

During the press tour to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Emma Stone was surprised in an interview with a video message from former Spice Girl Melanie B. And Stone legitimately started crying.
Emma would have been around ten years old when the Spice Girls were preaching girl power, so this was probably her childhood fantasy.

Anyone who tells themselves that they wouldn’t be freaking out if they were front row at a Britney Spears concert is lying to themselves. At least Miley is honest and is understandably having the time of her life.
Miley is so committed here that if Britney asked for her left kidney, she’d probably say yes.

After the five girls stopped squealing, Simone managed to calm herself down enough to snap an adorable photo for Instagram.

Back when J-Law was starting to hit it big with her role in the X-Men franchise, she stumbled into Bill Murray at Comicon and, well, you can see how that went.
Bill is obviously so used to this happening because he seems completely unphased that J-Law is probably about to faint.

The entire world was watching when Jack Nicholson surprised J-Law in her after-Oscar interview. And, rightfully so, J-Law almost choked on air.
If one of the biggest actors of the 20th century stopped your interview to compliment your Oscar win, you’d do the same thing.

Apparently Demi Lovato just fangirls over anyone. She met Iggy Azalea at Vevo’s Certified Super Fan Fest. Demi may have been performing too, but I’m pretty sure she was also one of the super fans.
She let fans know that next time, the two would get a photo of their butts together. Bless you, Demi.

This fangirl tweet from Ariana Grande about meeting Bruno Mars is ten times better when you remember back in 2011 when she tweeted multiple times at Bruno professing her love.
He never tweeted back, but singing her #1 hit song to her is just as good, right?

Now I know what you’re thinking. How did Taylor convince someone as cool as Chance to show up? No one knows, but Chance invited Taylor back to Chicago any time.

Everyone knows that even after you meet someone, the fangirling doesn’t stop. Mark Ruffalo makes that very clear every time he sees his good friend Paul Rudd.
If you don’t have a friend like Mark who is going to praise you no matter where you are or what you’re doing, then you’re missing out.
