I’m your biggest fan…

Mel B“I’m your biggest fan”  It’s so funny.  I actually heard someone say that in the green room, backstage at the GLAAD Media Awards this last Saturday.  No they weren’t saying it to me.  They were saying it to Mel B, aka Scary Spice.  I had to walk away because I had never actually heard someone say that in real life and I started to giggle.  I mean, clearly that is just not possible.  You’re a straight, white girl.  I’m sure her biggest fan is some queen in like Indiana, that looks just like Scary Spice in drag, except he’s 6’2″ and she’s like 5’2″ .  I was almost embarrassed for the girl.  This is the fastest way to get kicked out of the green room.  In fact, how did she get in there anyway?  No fawning fans are allowed backstage.

It got me to thinking though.  I am everyone’s biggest fan.  My wusband, she’s an athlete.  She’s highly competitive.  I, on the other hand, I am a fan.  So, I am the one rooting people on and singing their praises.  If you’re in the spotlight, you need fans.  I like being a fan.  I can tell you all of the reasons why someone is amazing.  People like me because I make them feel better about themselves, even if they lose.

Being a big fan means I get invited to all kinds of things.  Who doesn’t want at least one person there screaming “you’re a rock star”, just for them?  The thing is, I really do think that you’re a rock star.  There is only one you, so you’re already the most awesome version ever.  Plus, people are doing some incredible things.  You made a movie, that’s awesome I can’t wait to see it.  You recorded a new album, that’s great let’s hear it.  A new fashion line, a new jewelry collection…people and their talents are truly awe-inspiring.

Perks of being a fan, free stuff.  If you want people to know about you, let me wear it, every compliment I get I’ll hand out your card or tell them where they can buy it.  And of course I’ll get compliments, your stuff is awesome!

So, keep on doing what you do.  If I’m not a fan yet, I’m sure I will be soon.
