Teen.com’s 5 Step Guide to Kissing Fans
These celebs have mastered the art of the platonic fan kiss! So let’s pretend you’re a celeb for a sec. Ok now you’re in the mindset, so we’ve got your tutorial on lockdown. So step out of your SUV, and get ready to smooch! Here’s how…
1. Master the Air Kiss The goal:
Always leave them wanting more! Which is why the first thing to do to signal your love is to throw an air kiss. This way, like Lady GaGa
, your fans see your admiration, but you have an easy out should you decide to do a wave-and-dash appearance.
2. Start Off Casual Size up the scene:
Take a few iPhone pictures and sign some autographs first. Why? Because otherwise you set a kissing precedent for all the fans who’ve gathered! Take some advice from the Biebs — give a little, then a lot (but only if you’re feeling it.)
3. Go in for the Hug The Wanted
’s Tom Parker is already an old pro, but even he knows: Hug with both arms! And skip the air hugs! How’d you feel if Tom only half-heartedly hugged you
? ‘Nuff said.
4. Segue into a Kiss on the Cheek
The Russell Brand full-on approach seems to be key: Go in with enthusiasm, and make sure the fans walks away with a great pic. Works great regardless of gender, age, or height, so go nuts! This is the most common type of fan kiss, so prep yourself. Most fan kisses stop here, but there is one more step…
5. If You’re Feeling it, You Could Kiss on the Lips Warning:
Use sparingly. We think Eminem may be setting a pretty high precedent here, so don’t go kissing every fan you meet! Or pack a ton of lip balm to compensate — your call.
So go forth, young squire: Embrace your public and giveth good fan kisses. Would you kiss your fans if given the chance? And which celebrity would you love to smooch?
