Meeting Kehlani

When I first got in line two manager-type people came by; one gave me an “Over 21″ wristband after I showed my ID - as well as asking to see my confirmation email which I had printed out - and the other one gave me a VIP necklace. 

While I was waiting in line I talked with these two fans a lot - one was named Kim, the other one I can’t remember the name of - and Person 2 had brought flowers to give to Kehlani which was the cutest thing ever. :)

Anyway, when we entered the room it was a very short line from where I was standing. Like honestly I met 5H when they were an opening act and this M&G line was way shorter than that M&G line. It was weird but I was excited (and nervous, really really nervous). I said out loud “oh my gosh she’s actually real” thankfully she didn’t hear me because she was with another fan at the time but wow. I was shaking so hard throughout the whole line, and throughout the whole time I talked to her.

So I saw that people were kind of just posing for a picture and then leaving and mentally I was like “oh no I won’t get to tell her the things I need to tell her”. But then when it was my turn I asked the people taking the pictures (one with their camera, and one with your camera/phone, both at the same time) if I could talk to her first. They said yes, so I left my bag (minus a few things I got out of it) next to them and then walked over to her.

I asked if she would write “TTD” on the piece of paper I had because I wanted to get my first tattoo in her handwriting. I told her it meant Through The Dark, but I didn’t have enough time to really explain to her why I wanted to get that as a tattoo/what it meant. But I think just the words ‘through the dark’ gave her at least a clue of why that was important enough for me to get a tattoo of it.

I also asked her to sign something else and she did, but I won’t say what it was because it’s a surprise for one of my friends - dun dun dun.

So finally, I got my bi pride flag out and unfolded it. Kehlani asked me “what is this?” and I told her it was the bi pride flag. I asked her if she would hold it for the picture, which she did, and then I gave her a little smooch on the cheek.

I told her that the song she made on her first mixtape about loving a girl (“First Position”, I couldn’t remember the name of it at the time though because I was freaking out too much about her being in front of me to think) meant a lot to me because I’d never heard a song like that [about girls]. She thanked me for saying that.

At some point we hugged, I can’t remember if it was when I just got there or as I was leaving but yeah.

I went back over next to the photographers to get my bag. Kehlani called me like “oh don’t forget your stuff” (referring to the ‘TTD’ paper and the thing I had her sign for my friend). I hadn’t forgotten, I was gonna come right back and get them, but the fact that she reminded me meant a lot.

Then on my way out one of the security people gave me a poster signed by Kehlani, her CD, and a tsunami pendent(??? at least I think it’s a pendent). I gave them a letter for Kehlani from one of my other friends (not the one I got her to sign something for). 

Then I went over to the bar area and one of the kind workers got me some water even though they weren’t *technically* supposed to do that yet because they’re not open yet. I was so thirsty because that M&G ate up so much of my energy jkfl;adfkj;la (but in a good way of course).

Wow she’s such an amazing person with an amazing smile and I’m so glad I got to meet her.

It definitely was. And her little speeches during it were amazing too. She talked about mental health and she also said she didn't want anyone who doesn't support the LGBT community to be her fan - which makes sense since she's a member of it but still. It was so sweet. <3
