Looks like even megastars get starstruck by other celebrities! Singer and actress Raven Symone could not contain her emotions as she met Janet Jackson for the first time at a recent concert. The former ‘Cosby’ star has been a die-hard Jackson fan for quite some time and attended one of her shows earlier this year.
She tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, “I met her – well, I didn’t meet her, I just, like, cried all over her. I went to her concert… I was a hot mess. I looked at her (backstage) and said, ‘I can’t do it!’ I ran and went to go sit in the back of a truck and her band conductor said, ‘Raven, what’s wrong?’ I said, ‘She’s so beautiful; I can’t take it.’ And my mum called me out. She said, ‘Girl, get your butt back here and take a picture with Janet!(There’s) something about the Jackson family, their aura, their energy, it overwhelms you. Especially if you’re a fan.”
Symone wants to tame her infatuation, so that she can play the popstar in a biopic.She says, “My dream role is to play in Janet Jackson’s life story, if I could ever talk to her without crying. If I could actually meet Janet and not cry and run away and make a crackhead of myself, then I’d like to play her.”
