Thanks to the success of the hit television series American Idol, we have seen a huge amount of new stars entering into the entertainment industry, with some of them not sticking solely to the music industry but actually spreading their wings a little. Katharine McPhee was the runner-up on season five of American Idol and has gone on to enjoy a long and successful career as a singer and actress, but she has admitted that she still gets starstruck.
Katharine McPhee has revealed that one of the celebrities that she seems to get most starstruck around is the reality television star Kim Kardashian, who she admits to getting very nervous around. Katharine has revealed how she was on the same flight as Kim recently and struggled for words to say after being spoken to by the star.
McPhee explained, "It was a super early morning flight, so we were in the same lounge. I saw her, I was going to the bathroom, and I was like, 'Oh my God, it's Kim Kardashian!' I met her before, but it's so weird, because I'm like legitimately a fan of all the girls, I'm just silly. No one said anything to each other on the plane. We would make eye contact and I would smile, but we were like all tired and exhausted."
She added, "But, then when we landed, (model) Lily Aldridge was on the flight as well, so she said hello to Lily and I was just like hanging back and then I saw Kim make eye contact with me and she was just like, 'Hi Kat', and I was like, 'Oh, she knows my name', but that was it, that was all I got, that was it. I didn't have much to say because I was too nervous. I get nervous around her."
We can think of more talented people to get starstruck over than Kim Kardashian. In fact, we would be more starstruck over seeing Katharine McPhee, purely for the talent!
