Speaker 1 (00:03):
I'm Honey German. My parents are Dominican. I was born
and raised in New York City. I love sneakers and
I'm a body positive advocate.

Speaker 2 (00:10):
I'm Carolina Bermudez soy Nikaa wins it, but I was
born and raised in Ohio. I'm a wife, a mama,
and a worker. Bee.

Speaker 3 (00:18):
This is life and Span English.

Speaker 2 (00:20):
You know, if people keep this up, we are not
going to be able to have nice things.

Speaker 3 (00:24):
Honey, you can't give us nothing nice? Is that what
you wanna say.

Speaker 2 (00:28):
People are out there acting wild, and it is going
to prevent all of us from seeing the people that
we love, the people that we've followed. It's just it's
getting to the point where it's absolutely ridiculous. Celebrities are
being pelted by people who are going to their show,
which I just don't understand.

Speaker 1 (00:48):
As far as how these fans are out here behaving
and what they're throwing up on stage at their quote
unquote favorite celebrities.

Speaker 2 (00:56):
Yeah, I just don't understand, like what motivates people for me? Yeah,
I guess it all started when Bbi Rexa. I know
that there's people who have thrown things in the past,
like women used to throw their bras on stage, like
when they would go and see rock shows and things
like that, like that's funny to me. Or people would
like throw their underwear on stage because they would think.

Speaker 3 (01:15):
Like already is so hot.

Speaker 2 (01:18):
Yeah, exactly, bras don't hurt. No underwear, it doesn't hurt.
Or like you know what, sometimes people would throw flowers
or teddy bears, stuffed animals, you know what do they
call them paluchas?

Speaker 1 (01:32):
You know, but like Maico, that is huge. They love
throwings up on stage.

Speaker 2 (01:37):
Right rosas, you know, like that. That's like to me,
that's a sign of like reverence and respect. And I
feel like that's like a really cool thing for people
to do. But now people are taking it to the
next level. And I had no idea. Of course, look
at me in the dark again, this is like a
TikTok thing or something. I don't know. That's what one
of these people said.

Speaker 3 (01:57):
These fans are just out here wild care. It's just
I don't know.

Speaker 1 (02:01):
I feel like the fans are getting younger and they're
feeling more self entitled to these celebrities, and it's I
think it's like a sense of ownership. But I was
also doing my research and I saw a psychologist that
said that it has a lot to do with adrenaline,
and yeah, okay, and them, you know, just being in
the crowd and being all in the moment and wanting

(02:23):
to show that they're living with intensity.

Speaker 2 (02:28):
I can see. I never really thought of it that way. Actually,
that's really that's a good interesting perspective because they're right
when you go to see your favorite artists, like, for example,
we took the boys to see Taylor Swift and when
I tell you, we're fans, but we're not like crazy fans.
These swifties, Oh, their energy was electric.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
Yeah, it's like in the same research study they were
saying that it's a flashy way of them responding to
what's happening on stage with their favorite artists, and it's
just like a wait for them to participate in the show,
regardless of the fact whether it's a good thing or
a bad thing.

Speaker 2 (03:08):
Well, it is a bad thing because look at for
beebe Rexa. There's jerky her phone boom.

Speaker 3 (03:13):
Did you see the black eye he gave her?

Speaker 2 (03:16):
Did I see the black eye? And the stitches she
had to get stitches above her left eye. This is
a young lady who by the way like if you
guys are listening to us anywhere other than the Tri
State area, She's like a home hometown girl. She's from
Staten Island.

Speaker 3 (03:32):
Yes, she's one of tor ass Off.

Speaker 2 (03:34):
Yeah, but she's also like she's written songs for so
many artists. She really really grinded to like get to
this place right, and so like b I love Babie
and I've had the opportunity to interview her several times.
She is just mad cool.

Speaker 1 (03:48):
She is super dope. Shout out all my Albanians out
here in New York. You know they strong with their
presence in these streets. I lotally everything she stands for.
So I was super fucking bummed when that happened to
her right.

Speaker 2 (04:03):
And so you know what it almost was like you
if you didn't see the video, the guy hurls his
cell phone. It hits her in the face, right above
her eyebrow. I think it was like her left eye
or something. She would up having to get stitches. She
collapsed on stage. Like imagine somebody throwing something at your
face full force and you're not expecting it, like you're

(04:24):
not even ready to dock you just like it's almost
like so fast that it hit her and then it
was like boom, you know what I mean, Like she
went down and after she was very cute. She posted
on her Instagram. The caption was I'm Good, which is
like her song.

Speaker 3 (04:38):
She's So Dope. And you saw what his response was.

Speaker 2 (04:42):
Yeah, what did he say?

Speaker 3 (04:43):
He said, I thought it would just be funny. He
looked young, maybe like late teen's, early twenties. He just
thought it would be funny to throw the phone at
her face.

Speaker 2 (04:52):
Yeah, there is nothing funny about that, And I actually
I think that he is like facing major charges now,
you know, like when you're prank wrong, right.

Speaker 3 (05:02):
When keeping it real goes wrong. Remember that Dave chappelle'skid.

Speaker 2 (05:05):
Totally, That's exactly what's going on.

Speaker 3 (05:07):
He and keep it real. He kept it stupid, That's
what he did.

Speaker 2 (05:11):
Well. That was like the first thing that happened, and
then it's like ever since then, it's almost like this
idiot opened the gateway to a bunch of other people
to start behaving badly, And now we're hearing about other
people who have been assaulted and it's just getting out
of control, Like people are going bananas. Do you think

(05:31):
that we were like inside too long? People don't know
how to act now that they're outside.

Speaker 3 (05:36):
Nah, I don't think so, I think, I don't know.

Speaker 1 (05:38):
I feel like people, especially with social media, they start
to feel like they have this fake closeness with their
idles and their celebrities, and there is a sense of ownership.
And I do what I want to do when I
pay for these tickets, and I want to throw someign
and I'm gonna throw something, and you know, it's crazy, Carolina.
This started back in the eighteen hundreds, but it started

(06:00):
with when people were not happy with the performance and
they would throw to me, they would throw the tomatoes,
and they would throw the rotten eggs. It actually started
with this one actor called John Ritchie, and then after
that it became a thing. But now it's just totally
out of control.

Speaker 2 (06:18):
Could you imagine you're out there and you're trying to
do your thing and somebody starts throwing some rotten ass
like nasty tomatoes at you, and you're just trying to
stay on track. You're trying to sing your Whitney Houston
song or whatever it is that you prepared, and people
are just like that to me is hilarious, but it's
also still wrong and obviously we did away with that,

(06:38):
you know, I mean, I don't know how it ever ended.
How did it come to an end?

Speaker 3 (06:42):
Oh't no, they stopped.

Speaker 1 (06:43):
They were like, okay, let's not throw rotten tomatoes and
eggs at people. I've never witnessed that in my lifetime,
but that's how. That's how the whole throwing things on
stage became a thing. The only person I thought that
came up by throwing a phone on stage was that
one fan that threw phone at megda Stallion Is. She
put it on the floor and just started to working

(07:04):
on top of the phone. Gird aft footage just worth gold.

Speaker 2 (07:08):
Oh I bet. And I don't know why she hasn't
called what is that with a Hollywood unlocked to get
her money? But yes, that's like maybe that people are
hoping that the artist will not this guy when we're
talking about bb Brexa. But I know that I've seen
like people give their phone to like Beyonce or Rihanna
when they're at her concert because they want that up
close footage. That's stuff that like you can never get.

(07:31):
You can never replicate that video, you know what I mean?
So like if you're handing your phone to an artist.
That's a totally different vibe. But like when you're throwing
things at them that could potentially hurt them, it's just
like you're gonna ruin it for everyone, you know. Bib
I had to end the concert there. That was at
what was it Peer seventeen in New York City, and
everybody was like super pumped to go and see her.

(07:51):
It's a great venue to go and check out an artist.
And it's like great, Now all of these people who
paid for these tickets, like that's it, the concert's over.

Speaker 3 (08:00):
And celebrities they don't be with the shits. Tyler the
Creator he straight up be like, just don't throw shit
up here, like he'd be mad with it. He don't
want nothing thrown on stage while he's performing. And I
don't blame him.

Speaker 2 (08:14):
Yeah, I can't blame him. I didn't even know Tyler
the Creator had this issue. See That's why I'm saying,
it's like it's bringing this to the forefront. Also, there
were artists, like I think it was Harry Styles. Harry
Styles has to be the nicest artist to his fans,
because people are throwing things at him. They're like throwing
like meeting like stuffy animals and things like that, and

(08:35):
he actually pauses and will like take a picture with something,
you know what I mean, Like he plays it up
for the crowd.

Speaker 3 (08:42):
It's crazy because he's like the king of this. I
remember there was one incident when they threw a bunch
of skittles at him and they hit him in the eye,
and he like had to stop performing. And I think
like one of the band members had to come and
be like, yo, guys, please stop with the skittles.

Speaker 1 (08:57):
Like that could have hurt him too. And yeah, he
embraces it because they throw feather boas and things at him.
But they've hit him with a lot of stuff. They've
hit Harry.

Speaker 3 (09:06):
Style with chicken nuggets, with shoes.

Speaker 1 (09:08):
They hit them with a shoe right in his crush.
He's always super nice about it, and it says the
show must go on, but right these people can get hurt.

Speaker 3 (09:17):
Caroly No, No, you're not eleven at the shoe and
the crosh or the chicken.

Speaker 2 (09:20):
No. I'm dying over the chicken nuggets. I feel like
you glossed over that. And it's like, you know where
they're getting rid of perfectly good chicken nuggets, which is
very offensive to me because right now I am starving.

Speaker 1 (09:32):
Harry Style has even hit with a tampon that was
out in the UK. Do that on US Americans, But
he has a long history of things being thrown up
on stage at him. I don't know if it was
clean or dirty, but he definitely was hit with a.

Speaker 3 (09:45):
Tampon out in Nottingham.

Speaker 2 (09:48):
And you know what, I can't see that, right, I know,
And I hope that nobody's throwing up. My mom would
be like, my mom doesn't know that cootex has an
X at the end of it. But yes, yeah, you know,
I heard about different things because Harry Styles obviously like
people are obsessed with him. They want him to like,
you know, there's all those fantasies and stuff like that.

(10:11):
I know they're they're wild. But when we come back,
I'm going to tell you guys about the latest things
that have been happening with these artists and how if
we don't start behaving what people are suggesting they're going
to do at concerts. So yeah, before we left, I
was telling you, honey that there's been more artists that

(10:32):
this has happened to. Did you see Pink last week
or a couple of weeks ago, somebody through Did you
see the things that are being thrown to her on stage?

Speaker 3 (10:42):
Nah?

Speaker 1 (10:43):
Bro, that was different. My mind was blown. Klelena tell
our listeners what was thrown at Pink.

Speaker 2 (10:49):
I would just like to go through the thought process.
You're getting ready to go and check out one of
your favorite artists. Okay, you bought the tickets, it's on
the calendar. Oh, tonight we're gonna go see Pink? Okay,
what are you gonna bring? Oh? I got to bring
a clear you know, one of those clear purses because
you know it's a stadium and this and that. Okay, yeah,
what else? Oh? You know, hold on a second, wait,

(11:10):
I gotta go back. I gotta grab a zip block
baggie of my mom's ashes. Did I don't send nizza
and on stage? Honey? It's ridiculous.

Speaker 1 (11:21):
You know, we got nik and a mama was the
number one Pink fan in the universe, Like, I want
to be sprinkled on a Pink concert?

Speaker 3 (11:31):
Like how did this come about?

Speaker 2 (11:33):
Well? I I exactly, That's what I'm saying. But also
I loved Pink's response to this, because she goes, I
don't know how to feel about this. And she was
trying to be respectful. But again, you put your mom's
ashes in a zip block and by the way, with
like a snack sized ziplock baggy. They didn't even give
Mom the respect of the sandwich size bag.

Speaker 3 (11:52):
Which the one where you put the little carrots in
that's it, yeah.

Speaker 2 (11:55):
The one with like the tiny little carrots. There was
no space for mom in there. And then she was like,
if you watch the footage, she like daintily, she was
like trying to hold onto it and not being dis
but it's also just like she was in a no
win situation. If she would have done something, the paparazzi
and the press would have been all over her. If
she was disrespectful and threw it back, the papara the

(12:17):
media would have been all over her. So now you
have to think, I feel like her response was perfect.
She's like, I don't know what to do with this,
you know, is just Alicia is a gem. But then
you know, I really did think that there are sometimes
when people love when you throw things on stage because
then somebody after that, I think it was after gave

(12:38):
her a block of cheese, like a wheel of bree cheese,
which personally that sounds lovely right now?

Speaker 3 (12:46):
Was it for Wegmans? That's all I want to know.

Speaker 2 (12:48):
I mean then that would be the expensive stuff. But yeah,
they ended up throwing like a wheel of cheese on
the stage and she was just like okay. She was like,
this was a choice, and I think that that was
a great choice. So you know, you got it, like
you got to take the good with the bad. And
I think that a lot of people aren't realizing that
the promoters and the ticket companies are gonna crack down

(13:09):
on this and I'm telling you, we are not going
to be able to see and enjoy our artists the
way that we're doing it now because of a couple
of people. They're going to ruin it for everybody.

Speaker 3 (13:18):
Pick your pick your items.

Speaker 1 (13:20):
Well, Like lit's say Lady Gaga one time in Barcelona Espanya,
they threw.

Speaker 3 (13:25):
Some sausages at her. That's not going to hurt her.
I guess she could just kick it to the side.

Speaker 2 (13:29):
I also think that's kind of funny, like that's very
on brand for Lady Gaga, Like she's like, I feel
like she would make a joke about it and be like,
oh I love She's just being thrown out.

Speaker 3 (13:37):
My face, you know, like were they Italian sausages? Right,
that's what we want to know.

Speaker 2 (13:43):
Yeah, No, I feel like she would have fun to
like joke around, to play with that a little bit.
Lady Gaga to me and little Monsters. They have such
a like unique relationship and they know what mother Monster loves.
But like, what else did you find out?

Speaker 3 (13:57):
The flower thing?

Speaker 1 (13:58):
Right, it's like, okay, you throw one roe, you throw
another rose. But girl, Rosalia she was in San Diego, California. Girl,
why they threw a bouquet of roses and that hit
us smack dead in the face, the whole bouquet.

Speaker 3 (14:12):
And she don't be happy with that. You know. She
did say like, if you want to throw something up here,
please do.

Speaker 1 (14:19):
It carefully and aim well and aim opposite of me,
like she did say, don't throw nothing up here, but please.

Speaker 2 (14:31):
Well you know what I have to almost think, like
you can see, like on the one hand, it seems
like that's super respectful and that they were like trying
to give her her flowers, you know, I get it,
But then it was like, damn homing, your aim was
like spot on because you got one right in the face,
you know, So that one I'm gonna let slide because
I feel like the intention wasn't there. But a lot
of these things that are happening now are very intentional.

(14:53):
I know that. Like country music. Have you been to
a country concert recently?

Speaker 1 (14:57):
I have never in my life, Caroline, I gotta make
down to the Nashville next time you go. You gotta
invite me to get my country on. There is one
country singer that I'm like, Damn, this boy is fine.

Speaker 3 (15:06):
Is he black?

Speaker 2 (15:07):
Which? One?

Speaker 3 (15:07):
White?

Speaker 2 (15:08):
Which? Brown? Brown?

Speaker 3 (15:12):
Was so good? He can get the business? Yes, camera, yes, camero.

Speaker 2 (15:16):
But I think he's married, but yes, he could get
it for honey.

Speaker 3 (15:19):
So Mary not dead? Okay, okay, all right.

Speaker 2 (15:22):
He still got a pulls. It's like, but That's what
I'm saying. This is spanning so many different genres too now,
because you know, I went to a Zach Brown band concert,
and I gotta be honest with you, one of the
most fun nights I've ever had. It was like there
are people were just there.

Speaker 3 (15:39):
For the vibe.

Speaker 2 (15:40):
You know, it was so much fun. We had a blast.
It's very like Red, white and Blue America, you know
what I mean. Like that is the general like attitude
of you know that concert that we went to, so
we had the best time. But just recently, Kelsey Vallerini,
do you know what Kelsey Vallerini as.

Speaker 3 (16:00):
You've heard of me, no, I know who she is.

Speaker 2 (16:04):
Is super cute. She's out there performing on stage. I
don't know what got into someone, but a flying object
hit her in the face and people are saying that
it might have been a bracelet. But you can hear,
like I watched the video several times and you can
hear like her backup band is still playing and they're

(16:25):
and they're like again, like in show business, that's like
the show must go on kind of thing, you know.
But you hear her talking, She's like, I got hit
in the eye, Like I think it's this. They're they're
literally on Mike discussing this.

Speaker 3 (16:36):
She's shocked, she's surprised. She's like, I don't know what
just happened.

Speaker 2 (16:40):
Well, this is why before the break, I told you
guys that if we don't stop, they are going to
find a way and we will not be able to
have these concerts the way that we see them now.
So previously in the sports world, when people used to
get upset with the sports announcers. The used to throw
things at them, and you know, like orts fans are,

(17:01):
they get rowdy, they're throwing popcorn, they're throwing their beards.
So what they decided was that's why you see that
netting around some of these sports anchors if you watch television,
you know, like when you're watching like the live TV
coverage of this stuff, that is why they have that
black like it almost looks like mosquito netting around them,

(17:24):
so that it prevents the fans and the people from
throwing things at them. Because they were getting pelted in
the face and in the body as well.

Speaker 3 (17:32):
That's straight up assault. Carolina, Like, come on, people, like
you're here. You Concerts are not cheap. They're very expensive.
When you might constant like look at these Beyonce tickets,
like people are spending thousands.

Speaker 1 (17:45):
Now you're gonna go to a Beyonce concert and injure her,
See you're getting arrested because girl, I.

Speaker 2 (17:51):
Was gonna say, I don't think, I don't think Beyonce
is playing. I think people know better than to do
that to her. But you know what, you never know,
people are just out of their minds. And that's why
I feel like if this continues to happen, it's gonna
be one of those things where we all get punished.
And I'm gonna be pissed because when I want to
see my favorite artists, you know, like we already have
the issue with the phones, too many people recording and

(18:11):
not paying attention to the artists when they're on stage.
And no, no, no, I think that it's gonna come
down to you. They're gonna they're gonna have them enclosed.

Speaker 3 (18:19):
You think, well, yeah, because it's like people.

Speaker 2 (18:23):
Are now seeing like that they're that they're getting the attention.
It's almost like even in parenting they say like, don't
reward bad behavior because then your kid knows like they're
gonna get a rise out of you. They're gonna get
that attention, even if it's negative attention. So now I
feel like it's almost been a domino effect, you know,
like first it was this guy with baby, then two
things with Pink, now this Kelsey Ballerini. It's like, I

(18:45):
think it's gonna take for somebody to get really hurt, unfortunately,
and I sure hope that doesn't happen.

Speaker 1 (18:50):
But I need to get some time give them. Yes,
you know the guy that threw that phone at byby Rexa.
I am down for him doing at least a year.
At least a year, Carolina.

Speaker 2 (19:02):
Yeah, but I just think this all goes back to
people like being inside for too long, not knowing how
to act in public, you know, as my mom used
to say to us when we were younger, when you're outside,
act like you should be outside, you know what I mean? Like,
and also the other thing, really quickly before we go
to another break, this dude really thought he was going

(19:24):
to get away with it. You throw your cell phone, bro,
like like they can't break into that and get your
information like.

Speaker 3 (19:31):
Home be the st STUPIDO.

Speaker 1 (19:35):
When I saw the picture, I said, of course this
dummy boy right here would do some dumb shit like that,
and say, I thought it would be funny.

Speaker 2 (19:43):
Well, when we come back from the break, honey, and
I are going to tell you about the time when
we were crazy fans, because you know, I know you
have it in you, honey, and I know that I
have it in me, and I'm gonna let you know
when I was the craziest fan. And that's going to
come up after this, all right, So we're talking about
fans behaving badly, at concerts and you know, I know

(20:05):
that you and Bella German go to concerts and you
start tworking, you get a little bit Come on, girl,
you gotta be honest a girl.

Speaker 1 (20:13):
Don't get me started, because listen, it still haunts me
to this day. My situation was documented, Carolina, Can you
believe what?

Speaker 2 (20:23):
No, I don't know this story.

Speaker 3 (20:25):
Oh let me tell you this story. We got these.

Speaker 1 (20:29):
Bomb ass front row tickets to see Romeo Santos. This
is like probably like six seven years ago.

Speaker 2 (20:36):
Oh no, oh yeah, I haven't but wait, wait, wait,
wait wait was this Romeo? Honestly, no, this was just.

Speaker 3 (20:43):
This was just Romeo solo.

Speaker 2 (20:45):
No, they don't.

Speaker 1 (20:48):
A little did we know, Carolina? This was an HBO
special that was being recorded.

Speaker 3 (20:57):
Stop, oh, Carolina.

Speaker 1 (21:02):
Till this day people send me pictures of me and
Bella while ' out screaming dancing.

Speaker 3 (21:08):
We were like two maniacs.

Speaker 1 (21:10):
I'm like, yo, when are people just gonna stop recognizing
us from this HBO special?

Speaker 3 (21:16):
I love him, I adore him, but.

Speaker 1 (21:18):
I never in my life knew I looked like this
while I enjoyed his music.

Speaker 2 (21:25):
That's it, Lfel. You got to see yourself through the
lens of everybody else. You know, he saw you if
you were that close to him, so you got to
see what he saw when he was up on that stage.
And Honey, if you have screenshots, please to put him
up on Instagram.

Speaker 1 (21:41):
Please, Carolina, I'm gonna get this footage just for Instagram.
I'm gonna go on HBO. I'm gonna steal the footage
and I'm gonna send it to you first, and then
I'm gonna send it to Nala because this has got
to make it onto life and Spanglish as socials.

Speaker 2 (21:56):
I didn't know that I was ready for this today.
You just served me a treat on a silver platter.
I've never been more excited to check my Instagram. And
if Bella is in this too, I want to see
your fainting. Oh my god, this is amazing.

Speaker 3 (22:14):
You remember the footage of Michael Jackson.

Speaker 2 (22:17):
Yeah, like people, Okay, this is the kind of footage.

Speaker 1 (22:20):
It is like we're really really like borderline hyperventilating for
this man.

Speaker 2 (22:25):
Stop it? But what is it? Okay? Let me ask you,
because like I get it, and trust me, I understand karl.

Speaker 3 (22:30):
And Karlen and our defense. We were I practically touched.

Speaker 1 (22:35):
His shoe at one point, so you know, yes, that's
how close we were. I guess the adrenaline and it
was just so close and I felt like I could.

Speaker 3 (22:43):
I couldn't. I didn't feel like it I could reach
out and touch him. I was hyped. I know, my
pits must have been sweating that night, like crazy.

Speaker 2 (22:53):
Okay, get being psycho. I said, like, what do you
think he's gonna do if you touch his shoe? Honey?

Speaker 3 (23:00):
I feel like I did.

Speaker 1 (23:00):
I don't know why I feel like I did. I
feel like I, you know, at the tip of his shoe.
I don't remember kind of shoes. They were just leep
a girl of the shoe which was announced.

Speaker 3 (23:11):
But whatever.

Speaker 2 (23:13):
But what is it about him, you know? Or what
is it about these celebrities in general? Because I will
tell you, you know, like Harry Styles has it, I
will certainly wasn't acting away, but like I took my
little niece to his concert, and my little niece is
when A yes, she's a good girl, she's absolutely gorgeous.

(23:35):
But when I tell you I saw a different side
of her. When what is it about these artists that
evoke that that feeling inside of us that makes us
like do the things that you would never thought that
you would ever do like touch his shoe or grab

(23:55):
his leg or you know what I mean, because that's
what people.

Speaker 3 (23:58):
End up doing, and that's what I ended up doing.
I feel like I did.

Speaker 1 (24:03):
But Harry Styles has a chokehold on gen Z and
even the millennials. I'll tell you that much. Because I
know females that are like sick with Harry, Like I
send them anything Harry Styles related. They're like my husband.
And I'm like, was I like this with Romeo? Because
I feel like it kind of like died down a
little bit.

Speaker 2 (24:22):
No, it does, it does, definitely. I mean my reference
on me, my story.

Speaker 3 (24:26):
I feel like I've I need you guys, I need
your story, give it to me.

Speaker 2 (24:30):
Well, I don't know, I feel like I've told you
this before. But when I was a young girl, I
think it was like fourteen years old, I went to
a New Kids on the Block concert. It was Christina
Galaci's mom. She was our chaperone, and she ended up
getting us fourth row tickets. And I swear to you,
you got to be close. That's the first you felt.

Speaker 1 (24:50):
Like you were there right, like these were your boys.
You own these men.

Speaker 2 (24:54):
At that point, I feel like I was so invested
in them. I bought the murder and back then, you know,
I mean, gosh, this is what like the early nineties,
and buying merch was not like an easy thing. It's
not like accessible like it is today, you know what
I mean. So it's like you had to buy the
merch from wherever they were releasing it. But I just

(25:15):
was so invested in the New Kids, and I was
obsessed like every concert special, everyone.

Speaker 3 (25:21):
Appearance, everybody was or you had.

Speaker 2 (25:23):
I mean, I didn't discriminate. I would have gotten down
with any of them. I was like, joe whatever's clever, Joey,
you know, I like my blonde hair, blue eyed guys.
But no, the crazy part was like at the end
of the of the show. Well, first of all, throughout
the entire show, Danny was giving me eyes the entire time,

(25:44):
and I knew it. And by the way, I was fourteen,
I was like, uh, and he was like the older one, right, No,
he wasn't the oldest, but he was up there. He's like,
I think that the oldest was John, then Donnie, then
Danny and Donnie.

Speaker 3 (25:57):
I forgot Donnie was in there, yeah, yeah.

Speaker 2 (25:59):
Yeah, and he and Donnie were on stage at the
end of the concert, and Donnie took off his shirt
and by the way, you're fourteen, your hormones are raging.
You're like, oh my gosh, I can't believe he looked
at me like I was ready to go to school
the next day to just tell everybody, like Danny was
giving having me eyes.

Speaker 3 (26:15):
You was looking around by that two of us.

Speaker 2 (26:18):
Honey, I was in middle school.

Speaker 3 (26:21):
Okay, fine, I'm dragging it.

Speaker 2 (26:22):
I'm sorry school, no, no, wait. And so at the
end of the concert, Donnie takes off his shirt, Danny
takes off his shirt. They're like dancing around. The last
song was hanging tough. They came over and Danny goes
you you come here. They pulled me on stage, Danny
and Donnie. Yes, missus. Galaci had a heart attack. She

(26:45):
was like, oh my gosh, she's refused from her.

Speaker 3 (26:47):
She was excited, freaking out, worried.

Speaker 2 (26:50):
She's like, where are they taking her? She's like, I'm
responded to, hes gonna kill me.

Speaker 3 (26:54):
So they take lady calm down. They take me.

Speaker 2 (26:58):
Backstage and he and he kisses me and he says,
wait a minute, how old are you? And I didn't
realize that's how young I was. I said, I'm sixteen, Yes,
you're Immediately immediately security came and grabbed me and he's like, yeah,
you got to take her back. I thought, being sixteen
that I was like, well no, like yeah, I thought that.

(27:20):
I never realized yeah, because I was a baby. So
they ended up taking me around and by that time
everybody's clearing up. It was the last song, so missus
Galasi is up like trying to talk to the security,
telling them that's my friend, that's my friend's daughter. I'm
responsible for her. I need her here right away. So

(27:40):
when I tell you, nothing could have prepared me for
that kind of an adrenaline rush. So yes, I see
what you're saying with your research from the beginning of
the podcast, because yeah, you get this like surge of energy.
It's really crazy. But that story will live in infamy
for me because like ever since then, I mean, my
friends would never let me forget it.

Speaker 3 (28:02):
You glossed over the kiss though, was it on your mouth?

Speaker 2 (28:06):
Oh yes, sweaty blotty, you need it. But that's me,
my husband. I mean I'm not I mean, oh.

Speaker 3 (28:17):
Mark, this was before you even existed in my universe.

Speaker 1 (28:20):
Left.

Speaker 2 (28:20):
Yeah, I felt like I had to say that. But no,
I mean think about yourself. You're you're a little girl,
basically your little girl. These guys like you dream about
them every night and you get to kiss one of them. Like,
now I will say this, like I thought he did
the right thing. Obviously. He asked me how old. I
was like, yeah, he kissed me first and then and
then he asked me and like and we actually joke

(28:41):
about it now because he came back with the new Kids.
I think it was like two thousand and eight they
did get the reunion. We talked about it.

Speaker 3 (28:49):
No, I'm not even kidding, like, yeah, I need I
need that footage. Naala, we need this footage. Is it
up on YouTube?

Speaker 2 (28:58):
No? What me getting pulled up on No? No, no, no, no,
no no, no.

Speaker 3 (29:02):
You revisiting the instance with him.

Speaker 1 (29:05):
If this is not on video one day, you're gonna
need to do that for me or he might Yeah
you are fourteen, let's not do that.

Speaker 2 (29:11):
I feel like they were yeah, actually that yes, he
was just like I have little girls and stuff like that.
But yeah, but again, like he has nothing to be
a shame, but he was young and single, age two. Yeah, no,
and he was like he was like probably in his
early twenties, you know, had no idea. I mean, he's
pulling a girl up on stage. So no, no, no,
no shade to Danny Wood whatsoever. But I mean, you know,

(29:37):
I remember, like she was grown. No, do you know,
I remember the exact outfit I had on. I had
the Mariah Carrey someday, Like I had the black off
the shoulder body suit with the blue jeans, and then
I wore like the patent leather lace up shoes. Bitch.
I was ready. I was so ready for this, so

(29:58):
don't try me.

Speaker 3 (29:59):
Yes, I was grown that day.

Speaker 2 (30:03):
I was grown, and I thought sixteen was it? So
you know, I mean listen, that's it. And that right there,
that is a story that I will forever cherish because
it's like who gets to have that happen to them?
You know what I mean? Like when you follow a
band or a singer or someone, it's just like that
is like the ultimate dream. But if these people don't
start acting right, nobody's going to get to see these

(30:25):
artists anymore.

Speaker 3 (30:27):
Take it easy on this artist.

Speaker 1 (30:28):
Are they going to be performing inside of an acrylic
cylinder or something? And we don't want that. We need
them walking back and forth on stage. I need that energy,
I need that choreography. I can't have nobody sitting down
unless you're pregnant. I don't want you performing in a chair.
And look what Rihanna did at Super Bowl, So take
the pregnancy away.

Speaker 2 (30:49):
I mean seriously, she was goals. But also like, I
will tell you one thing. The one reason why I
will not go to Louise Migel with my mom is
because she's she won't act right. I know her to
lose it, she will lose her mind. She thinks I
can't wap on Louise Megan. Oh, she talks about him
and my dad. Actually, it's hilarious. My dad and my
mom have been married for so long. My dad gets jealous.

(31:12):
He's like, yeah, souvi siente. I mean, my gosh, you
know you're married. He gets very offended when she talks
about Louise Miguel. So if I ever end up taking her,
I'll have to record it. That would just be such
a moment.

Speaker 3 (31:24):
I can only imagine. Didn't Louise Megan date Mariah Carey.

Speaker 2 (31:29):
He sure did, and I think that I think that
they were meant to be together, and I think that
he messed her up and she messed him up because
they both of them have never been right ever since.
But that her a whole other episode.

Speaker 3 (31:40):
I remember. I'm like Mariah Carey, it just came.

Speaker 2 (31:47):
No, that whole that was the emancipation of me me.
That is it, like she was. He really did affect her,
you know, So.

Speaker 3 (31:56):
You think that's my girl? I don't know, Louise me.
I don't know for sure.

Speaker 2 (32:04):
Nobody told her he dated Daisy f Right. Oh no, yeah,
Daisy fuent this and then he also I think it
was like mirkaos or one of the girls from Primer.

Speaker 3 (32:14):
In Bacto for the streets. I see what your mom
has a chance.
