Meeting Lady Gaga With VerizonUp!


I know everyone has had a celebrity crush at one point or another. As a teenager, mine was Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. I listened to her every song on replay, gushed over her bold and creative outfits, sat in the very nosebleeds of her Monster Ball tour, and went as far as to learn the entire choreography for Bad Romance. 
...
When Verizon reached out last week with the chance to meet her I nearly fainted. Turns out, they were launching a new program called VerizonUp. It's very simple. You'll earn 1 credit with every $300 spent on your Verizon Wireless monthly bill. Each credit equals one awesome reward. From offers on brands like Apple Music, Uber, to once-in-a-lifetime experiences like front row tickets to concerts and games. I urge you to download the My Verizon app and join VerizonUp! Here's why:

It was an absolute pleasure to tour backstage, stand in on sound check, enjoy catered dinner with her crew, attend a pre party to the show, watch an amazing concert from front row, and of course to have the opportunity to meet an idol of mine! Here's how that went:
...
She stepped through the curtain and smiled sleepily, then sat at a small round table 5 feet in front of me. She wore diamond studded short shorts, pink cowboy boots, a "gaga" printed white crop top, and her newly signature western hat. She casually sipped wine from a glass, and greeted us asking how we were. She responded that she was worn out, and apologized for being late. With her recent hip injury, she likes to take a few minutes after a show to relax and center herself. She talked about working on one's self, and how she enjoys taking time for reflection, meditation, and loves a good Epson salt bath. She continued with trusting her closest friend on the creation of her documentary on Netflix, Gaga: Five Foot Two. She admitted to not watching it until after it was released, and laughing at herself in a few scenes. Then continued to laugh over some past memories, like laying on a piano and singing with Kermit the Frog in the Muppets. "Art is all perception" she explained, saying how important it is to practice, and to not hide your artistic talent. A quick picture was taken, and I left her by saying "Thank you for being an inspiration." 
...
Let me set one thing straight for everyone. I was a nervous wreck going into this! As soon as she entered that room, I came to a huge realization. She's only human. Not only that, but she is a sweet, sassy, and down to Earth individual. Her presence actually made me feel very calm and relaxed. "I love people" she stated, and I could absolutely tell she meant it. She deeply cares for anyone and everyone she meets, and takes their circumstances straight to heart. Now that's someone who deserves any good bit of fame that exists! It felt incredibly fulfilling to meet her and get to know her for who she truly is as an artist and person.

So download VerizonUp today and start earning your own phenomenal rewards! Thank you to Verizon for making a dream of mine come true!
