On June 16, 2013 I was lucky enough to meet Kesha, and till this day I am so thankful for it. My freshmen year of high school Tik Tok was realeased and blew up the radio and I fell in love with the song and had an instant obsession with her. I was always getting shit for liking Kesha, people would tell me she wasn’t talented and didn’t deserve to be famous and all this other crap. But I stuck to what I believed in and I am glad I did. On June 16, 2013, like I said I was lucky enough to meet her. Before the concert everybody who had purchased tickets to meet her was gathered in an area for an hour or two having drinks, talking and just waiting for the moment to meet her. Finally, everybody gathered up and got into 5 seperate lines each line was taken one at at time to where Kesha was at waiting to meet her animals. My line was the last to get taken and we were waiting by this wall and Kesha was waiting on the otherside. Time passed and I saw people walking after they met Kesha with the hugest smiles on their faces. I couldn’t contain myself any longer. And finally… I was next in line, it was my turn to meet Kesha. I turned the corner and I saw Kesha just waiting for me to walk to corner to greet me. The first thing she said to me was “Oh my God! I love your makeup!” and I began to cry, it just didn’t feel like real life. I am meeting somebody who I have looked up to for a huge part of my life. Somebody who would get me through the darkest/hardest times of my life, when I was in the biggest rut and wouldn’t ever get out out. Well she was complementing me, she told me she loved my makeup, and little did she know about everything she had done and had helped me through. While I was crying she was wiping the tears off my face telling me not to to cry because she didn’t want me to ruin my makeup. I began to tell her how much she meant to me and told her about some gnarly stuff that was going on with my brother and she was listening to it all. She cared about it all. She was talking to me for about 5 minutes when everybody was trying to rush her, but I was lucky enough to have 4 minutes longer than anybody else got. She told me to stay strong, she told me that I was on Earth for a purpose and to not let anybody tell me different. She pulled me in for a hug and told me she loved me. I couldn’t believe it. She said, okay now it’s time to pose for a picture. So we got this picture. When I walked away she said to believe in myself, and that everything is going to work out in the end. But I’m not done yet, my mom and dad were with me, and they got to meet her too, they got to talk to her too. The first thing Kesha said to my mom was “your son is going to be in my prayers.” Her and my mom were talking for about 5 minutes also telling her to stay strong and that everything would be okay. She posed for a picture with my parents and was cracking jokes with my dad. It was one of the happiest days of my life. We went back to the common area where people were having drinks and that’s when Kesha’s cousin came up to us and handed us something that Kesha wrote to my brother. It was a backstage pass that said “To John, Stay Strong. Love Ke$ha”. Now did she really have to do that? No. She did it out of the kindness of her heart. There are very few and in between celebrities that would ever do that. And Kesha is in fact one of them. Kesha is the kindest person and one of the most talented artists ever and I wish people would realize that. Even if you don’t like Kesha’s music I just want everybody to read this story and just realize how great of a person she is because she sure as hell is. She has made the bigggest impact on my life, before meeting her yes, but after meeting her even a bigger one. I see how see is with her animals and how much she appreciates us and how she doesn’t sell out to be somebody she’s not. She tells us to be ourselves and that’s exactly what she is doing. She is one of the best role models out there. And the reason why I am telling this story is because she gets so much shit for being a party girl, or having shitty music. But I just want people to know, that she is one of the greatest people you will ever meet. She appreciates every single one of her fans and she is just amazing. June 13, 2013 has changed my life and I am so happy I was able to meet her. I love you Kesha, thanks for being you.
