Here’s a thing I’m actually embarrassed about…I met Justin Bieber before, and then I was at the table and I was there with my friends. We were going to talk to him, and then he showed up.

I was like ‘hey, my little sister really likes you, and she’s 12, would you take a picture?’ he was like, ‘cool.’

And then he walks away, and I was like ‘wow’. All of a sudden, ‘Bieber Fever’ swept over me and I got hot and started sweating. I was like ‘What’s happening to me? Justin Bieber did it!’
