“I desire to make sure we now have good security. I’m not too artist yet, I don’t have security beside me all the time, I don’t have ‘my guy.’ I asked my team, ‘Should I receive a guy? Should I have someone?’ I go out on a regular basis without security, merely never know. You have no idea who’s on the market obsessed with you for the point that they will do something prefer that,” she said.
However, despite her trepidation about meeting fans, Meghan is set not to permit her to fear stop her from meeting whoever has supported her during her career.
