If you follow this blog and my social media, you’ll know that last weekend I was in Cardiff for a 5 Seconds of Summer concert weekend along with some friends. While we were there, something that only happens in fan fiction happened. 5 Seconds of Summer’s drummer, Ashton Irwin, booked my friend a hotel room! Crazy, right?
While the media are hounding her for the 411, Laura agreed to speak to me about the craziness that took place early Saturday morning.
Hey Laura! So, what was the situation that led you to Ashton being your saviour of the night?
Hi Jazz! Basically the hotel room that my friend’s boyfriend booked had accidentally been booked for 2 people rather than 3 so as I was supposed to meet them later I ended up not being able to stay in that room.
Where were you when he found you?
I was outside the back of the arena when Ashton’s taxi pulled up.
Did you ask him for help or was it his own decision to take matters into his hands?
Actually I didn’t even start the conversation! I didn’t want to trouble him so I just smiled and waved and he came over to ask how I was doing. I explained my situation and he asked why I couldn’t buy myself a room in the hotel across the road so I told him I had no money. He swiftly replied that he did and crossed the road to the hotel.
Was there any doubt that he’d not be able to get a room?
Well to be honest I thought he was trying to convince the hotel staff to let me crash on yours and Sarah’s hotel room floor.
That’s security being too tight! Did he end up pulling the “famous” card by any chance?
I did make a joke along the lines of ‘use your fame to make them let me stay’ and he laughed!
What was your reaction when he offered to book you a room?
I was gobsmacked. I thought he was just going to tell me to ‘stay safe’ and walk away but no! I was so close to tears I was that grateful. (Being absolutely shattered didn’t help on the tear front haha)
If you could meet with him again, what would you like to say to him?
I would want him to know how incredibly grateful I am! I did thank him a lot that night but I wasn’t fully composed haha. I’d like to be a lot calmer and tell him how much it meant to me and probably give him another cheeky hug!
People often say celebrities and pop stars have a big ego – what would you say about that?
I mean some celebrities might but I don’t think 5sos do at all. Every time i’ve met them they’ve always been so lovely! It was almost 3 am I don’t think Ash was in the mood to meet people (which I don’t blame him for, he was off to bed!) He didn’t have to meet me that night let alone help me out! That just shows how caring he is!
So much happened at the 5SOS weekend which you can find out in my vlogs
