Unless you’re Justin Bieber, it’s becoming more and more popular for big superstars to hold meet and greet sessions for their biggest fans.

However the results of the posed photographs do not always go to plan- awkward hugs, huge spaces between them and far too much touching are just some of the results.

Here are 21 super fans meeting their biggest idols and the awkward photographs.

One Direction

We can see what these girls were going for and it sure was nice of One Direction to play along but those are some seriously fake smiles

Rihanna

Rihanna is such a good sport for her fans.

You can tell she feels a little uncomfortable though.

Khloe Kardashian

But sometimes it’s not the celebs being the creepy ones.

This man invading Khloe Kardashian’s personal bubble needs to back up!

Hugh Grant

It actually looks like neither Hugh Grant or the ‘fan’ want to be in this meet and greet photo.

Tim Tebow

Thankfully, some celebs can take meet and greets gone wrong well, just like Tim Tebow. Still, this probably isn’t what he bargained for.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato doesn’t have a problem getting to really know her fans, but we can’t help but think we wouldn’t choose this exact pose with our fave celebs…

Rihanna

Lady Gaga

First rule of a meet and greet, at least pretend like you are happy.

Lady Gaga fails to do this in epic fashion alongside her ‘little monsters’.

Russell Brand

What is even happening here between Russell Brand and one of his fans?

Kanye West

Bow in the presence of greatness, Kanye fan.

Paris Hilton

You can tell Paris Hilton is just thinking “….oooo-kay!” and is ready for this pic to be over already.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj might be smiling with these fans but we know her judging face well enough to know she thinks this is one awkward encounter.

Hulk Hogan… and James Blunt

Kim Kardashian

Oh Kim, is it even possible to have a faker smile than this? Yikes!

Justin Bieber

While we saw earlier that the Biebs was down to get up close and personal with some of his fans, he seems none too happy about this super awk meet and greet.

Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne doing her upmost best to keep out of this fan meet and greet photograph.

Britney Spears

We know Brit loves her fans but you’d never know it from looking at her meet and greet pics!

Sir Patrick Stewart

Sir Patrick Stewart sure is great for playing along with this man who insists on being so close, while also towering above him.

Justin Bieber

mshuzvxeeijhh2wbqa1c

Speaking of grabbing, can this fan sue Justin Bieber for this? What a creep!

It’s probably a good thing he no longer does meet and greets!

Miley Cyrus

Some would call this man lucky, others would tell him to burn his hands off…

Robin Thicke

But the most awkward meet and greet of all? That inspired worldwide derision, a terrible album, and the end of a marriage?
