The Utah Statesman interviewed Madison Smith, a junior in public relations, from Dallas, Texas.
Utah Statesman: What is your most awkward roommate story?
Madison Smith: One time I slept walked into (my roommate’s) room, and I just happen to sleep not-clothed, and she had a guy over. I woke up and she was like, “What are you doing in here?” And I was just like, “I don’t know.”
US: Did you ever see him again?
MS: I see him all the time and I just have to apologize, like “I’m really sorry for that.”
US: Was that your most embarrassing moment, or do you have another?
MS: My most embarrassing story, I totally hate talking about it, but I will for this article. My friends (from Texas) and I … went to this concert, and I was so excited about it because I had never seen this guy live. So we went, and it happened to be at a bar, and things got a little crazy. I got a little too drunk. My friend was like, “I’m going to buy him a shot,” and I was like “Yeah, yeah, buy him a shot while he’s on the stage.” I was like, “I want to do it. I want to give it to him.”
US: How did he react?
MS: He was like, “I’m not taking that,” and I was just frozen on this platform in front of everyone, and I was like, “OK, what do I do?” So … I just drunkenly started yelling that “Shots” song, and then it just got really awkward, so he was like, “Ma’am can you please get off the stage?”
US: Who was the musician?
MS: Austin Gibbs. He was like, “Can you get off the stage?” … Then he was like, “OK, I don’t even want to play this song anymore. You’ve ruined the moment.” So me and my friends just left. I was like, “Nope, we’re done.”
US: Do you still listen to his music?
