Pixie Lott Weeps for Meeting Mariah Carey

January 22, 2010 (5:50 am) GMT
Idolizing Mariah Carey since she was a child, Pixie Lott failed to control herself when she met the 'Hero' singer as she started 'welling up'.

British music newcomer broke down in tears when she met for the first time, because she'd spent her childhood idolizing the pop icon. The "Boys and Girls" hitmaker ran into Carey at a industry party in London, and rushed to say hi to her hero.

Lott says, "When I was little I listened to my mum's music. I sang all the big ballads by Mariah Carey. I met Mariah - she had a party in London and I got to meet her." The occasion was so emotional for Lott, she found herself fighting back tears.

Lott adds, "I thought I'd be fine as I've met so many people but I shook her hand and started welling up. It was so embarrassing but I was overwhelmed, she'd been my idol since I was so young. Then she went to the toilet. She didn't give me any advice on how to be a popstar."
