Britney Spears Pens Sweet Letter To Young Gay Fan Who Came Out
This is a sweet story that we just had to share. Britney Spears super-fan David LeCours got to go see his idol perform in Las Vegas and was able to present her with a letter telling her how she'd helped him as he struggled to come out as gay.
David posted a photo of their meet-and-greet on Instagram and writes:
I honestly can't believe I got to meet this wonderful and beautiful women again. She is the sweetest and nicest person alive. I got to give her my letter that I put so much effort into. The letter explained how she helped me get through a real tough period in my life these past couple of months, and how I wanted to end it all but she made me be strong. As I was leaving the building where meet and greet was held, Britney's body guard ran and stopped me and said Britney requested my address so she could respond because my letter meant so much to her. Thank you for everything Britney. I wouldn't be able to be so confident and open about my sexuality if your music and you didn't help me. I love you so much, thank you for not only being my inspiration but helping me get back up and be strong.
And guess what? Britney responded to his letter!
A week after seeing her in Vegas, David received this letter in the mail from Brit Brit!
“I was so happy to receive your letter. I was very happy to hear about how courageous you’ve been about being openly gay. I’ve always been told as long as you know in your heart that’s what matter most. I try to follow my heart and dreams every day of my life and I think that’s why I am where I am today. It means so much to me to have a fan like you who takes the time to sit and write me such a touching letter. Your letter was both touching and sincere. I wish you nothing but the best in the future and hope you keep smiling.
Shine bright always,
It's certainly easy to be cynical--we're often guilty of it ourselves, but Britney clearly made this young fan's day! (Or his week. Maybe his year.)
And we love that the David posted this himself rather than this being released by someone on Britney's team. Brit Brit's a sweet one!
