Justin Bieber meets 9/11 victim’s daughter at Macy’s

Her dream came true.

President Barack Obama delivered on his promise to set up a meeting between a New Jersey teen who lost her father on 9/11 and Canadian singing sensation Justin Bieber, according to the New York Post.

During a ceremony at Ground Zero in May, Obama had promised Payton Wall, 14, of Rumson, some face time with her favorite singer after she wrote the president a letter talking about the loss of her father Glen and saying that Bieber’s music inspired her to share the story.

Last Thursday, she got her wish when Bieber was in town to promote his new fragrance, “Someday,” at Macy’s in Herald Square as throngs of raucous fans waited outside.

“It was so cool,” she said, according to the paper. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The teen got to hug the pop phenom with her sister, Avery, 12, and best friend Madison Robertson, 14, who also lost her father, Don, on 9/11.

The girls, who brought along a life-size cutout of President Obama, were nervous at the prospect of meeting Bieber.

“He was really nice and is so cute,” said Avery, according to The Post. “He didn’t even look real.”
After receiving Payton’s letter, Obama invited the girl and her mother to a wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero just days after Osama bin Laden was killed.

During the ceremony, Obama – who jetted into town Thursday for a series of fundraisers as the Macy’s event was wrapping up – told her that he knew Bieber and would try to set up a meeting.

    First of all, he is SUCH A SWEETIE! <3

    Also though, I can't help but notice that 2 of these girls are looking a little anorexic. I makes me so sad because they are so beautiful, but don't look healthy at all. If you girls are reading this please know that you are BEAUTIFUL and don't need to be so thin to look good. Please be healthy and get help if you have an eating disorder.

    • my teacher told me tht just because u are skinny dosnt mean ur anorexic, my best friend is 80 pounds and she just turned 13 its because her body dosnt allow her to gang weight

        Oh I know that they aren’t “for sure” anorexic, and it certainly may be just their metabolism, I’m just saying that so many girls feel the pressure to be thin and it really needs to stop. I’m in college and taking a course on media influence on girls, and when polled, 88% of girls age 13 to 20 think they are too fat. Over 60% say they have considered anorexia to lose weight. I just hope these girls are being healthy, that’s all. They are really beautiful and I hope they know that 🙂
        Thanks for making a good point, Nicole. My comment did come across a little harsher than I intended it to.
