I used to really like boyzone in my youth (don’t judge ) and have seen them a couple of times in my adulthood to reminisce. I really can’t warm to Ronan he takes himself way too seriously and seems to look down at fans. Even though we’ve paid for his lovely lifestyle.I don’t. I saw a headline saying Kim Kardashian is still insisting that Taylor is lying but didn’t bother to read it as IDGAF lol
I don’t know if this has been posted already but it’s not my story, it’s from Mumsnet, I’ll try and find it:
I went to a Gary Barlow concert (no judging) at the Royal Albert Hall in 1997. Afterwards my mum said we could wait outside to see if I could get an autograph, it appears there was a bit of a get together inside and a few pop stars of the time came out like 911 (one of which was inviting me back to his- I looked older but, still) and someone no one will remember called Connor Reeves who was lovely. Everyone has had a drink but it seemed pretty tame.
Then Boyzone came out (minus Mikey) and had probably drunk a bit more, Stephen Gately couldn't stand or really talk and was almost carried to the car. I asked politely for an autograph (there was a max of 10 people waiting) and they went mental shouting why should they? I wasn't at their concert and they weren't getting any money or anything from it. I was shocked and just said nothing, and my mum said to just ignore them they were just being silly because they'd had a few drinks. They then all got into the car / people carrier.
After 5 mins or so the window rolls down and RK calls over to me and says they're sorry, it's just a bit late and they were wrong, come over and they'll sign my programme. I went over and had to lean into the window to hand my book to him at which point whilst cackling he presses the button to shut the window on my head. At which point my mum walked over, made sure I was ok, opened the door and punched him straight in the face.
I've never been prouder to be her daughter
The others can’t sing for toffee but they were brilliant with the audience
Your mum sounds awesome. Not made him any less arrogant though lol.
