At a wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero, the 14-year-old daughter of a man who died in the Twin Towers told President Obama that she wanted to meet Justin Bieber. "I know Justin," Obama reportedly replied. "Maybe I could set something up."
"He just said 'Hi,' " said Payton, who admitted she was more nervous around Bieber than the president.
The girls carried a life-size cardboard cutout of Obama and were so overcome with shyness, they could barely get any words out when the teenybopper showed up. "He was really nice and is so cute," Avery beamed. "He didn't even look real."
