There is an old saying which says that you should never meet your idols, as they are never going to live up to your expectations and you are always going to end up disappointed by them. However, this is not always the case and even some of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry still get nervous about meeting their idols.
Over the past few years, Big Sean has met his idol Eminem on a number of occasions but that has not stopped him from still getting nervous about performing with the star. Eminem was a surprise guest at the Big Sean concert recently, but during rehearsals, Big Sean was so nervous about it that he kept forgetting his words.
Big Sean explained, "I kept fumbling because it was such a moment for me. Eminem was there, under the stage, waiting to pop out from underground. I'm just sitting there thinking, 'Wow, I'm onstage with Royce da 5'9, and Eminem is about to pop up.' It was a major moment for me. But I executed it in the show perfectly, and that's what counts."
As well as admitting that he was wracked with nerves during the rehearsals for the big night, due to performing with a rap music great such as Eminem, Big Sean also went on to heap a huge amount of praise on the star, claiming that Eminem is one of the biggest legends in the music industry, ever.
He added, "He's a great guy. I've been to the studio with him a few times, had a few chances to talk to him. He's a legend - honestly, sometimes I feel like I'm talking to a ghost, how legendary he is. He's here, and then he just disappears. But his presence is felt. He's one of the biggest inspirations to me."
We guess it can sometimes be good to meet your idols then.
