Former cocktail waitress Clarkson is a huge fan of the Honey hitmaker and was overwhelmed when Mariah offered her travel tips for her current trip to London.
Kelly swoons, "I completely dorked out. I never get jittery on stage, I don't think I've ever been nervous my whole life, but when I met her I felt like I was gonna be sick through nervousness. She's just such an amazing talent.
"She asked me what I was doing and I said I was coming to London and she was like, 'Oh, you'll love it, I loved it myself.' She's very nice, very sweet and down to earth, and I'm thinking, 'Mariah Carey, why are you talking to me?'"29/07/2003 17:38
