I mean ur just a regular person to, just like me and every one else. i dont look at u as just famous. but if u want to look at urself that way thats awesome. thats wat ur made of. but on the inside your just a regular person. it would be the biggest thing ever in my life to get to speek to u on myspace or watever u have to contact me, its fine if u dont. most girls wouldnt to a stranger. but im a great teenager just like u, i promise to all that im saying. i am 15 getting ready to turn 16. i am a big big fan. i swear im not making none of this up. just please, contact me on my email or something. this is real. i would never lie in my life about this. please just once? its ok if u dont. of course its ok. dont worry bout it if u dont want to. i would just like to talk. it would be awesome just like i keep saying lol. but anyways please.
