All celebrities know that they wouldn’t be anywhere without their fans. While most celebrities treat their fans with love and respect, there are quite a few celebrities who don’t really care for their fans, despite everything they’ve done for them and their careers. On the other hand, there are quite a few celebs who have gone above and beyond for their fans.
Fans give so much to their favorite celebrities and certain stars know and appreciate that, which is why they’re sure to give back to them. Celebs like Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj have given back to their fans in big ways, so big, that they’ve even changed their lives. That’s what fan appreciation is all about!
10 Harry Styles
Harry Styles has the motto, “Treat people with kindness,” and Harry definitely practices what he preaches. Recently, Harry’s car broke down outside of a fan’s home. He rang the doorbell to have somewhere to wait while they fixed his car. Unfortunately, Theadora, the fan whose house he was hanging out at, wasn’t home at the time.
Harry, being Harry, left her a note: “Theadora, my car broke down on your street and your dad’s friend kindly let me wait at your house with a cup of tea. I’m devastated that we missed each other. Looking forward to meeting soon. Treat people with kindness. All my love, Harry. P.S. I fed the fish.” He also included a photo of himself feeding the fish. He also left a second note saying “Tell your dad to get in touch and I’ll see you at a show” with an autograph on his album in her room.
9 Keith Urban
Keith Urban is another celebrity who has gone above and beyond for a fan. One of his biggest fans, Marissa English, was on hospice care and wasn’t able to go to his concert even though she had tickets. Her health was declining, so her nurses tried their hardest to reach out to him to see if he could make a video or something. Luckily for her, he made a surprise visit to the hospital where he gave her a private serenade before his concert. He even took a few photos with her, making her dreams come true despite everything she was going through.
8 Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is so thankful for his hands that he went above and beyond for a fan named Melody Driscoll. Melody was suffering from Rett syndrome and was in the hospital for most of her life. One of the bright spots in her life was Ed and his music. Her parents created a social media plea to try and get Ed to meet their daughter.
Of course, Ed saw and went to visit her at the hospital where he sang to her and spend a lot of time with her, absolutely making her day. Sadly, Melody passed away two years later when she was just 11 years old. Ed even attended her funeral to pay his respects to the little girl that made such an impact on his life.
7 Miley Cyrus
One of Miley Cyrus’ biggest fans, Matt Peterson asked the singer to prom, but she sadly had to turn him down due to scheduling conflicts. She made up for it though, as she had him go to her concert in Arizona. At the concert, she staged prom photos for him where they took the classic photos and some of their own. Matt even dressed in a tuxedo covered in pictures of Miley’s tongue. She let him take as many pictures as he wanted and even took things a step further by taking him on stage during the concert. That definitely made up for not being able to go to his prom.
6 Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj gave back to her fans in a really big way. She started up a “competition” called “Student of the Game” where her fans would tweet their college expenses that they needed to pay off — tuition, books, accommodations — to Nicki along with the #StudentOfTheGame. Nicki, along with her team, went through all of the entries where she selected 37 winners. The winners had their student loan debts or their college tuition paid off by Nicki, who tweeted that she was so proud that so many of her fans were working hard in college.
5 Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp is a star who loves to give back to his fans, especially those who are sick and are having a hard time. Johnny is no stranger to visiting hospitals, especially pediatric hospitals. Although fans love Johnny just the way he is, when he goes to visit sick children he often dresses up as his infamous character, Captain Jack Sparrow. He goes into full costume and character, spending time with the sick patients and their families. It’s something that he enjoys doing and has done it on multiple occasions.
4 Taylor Swift
If there’s one thing we know it’s that Taylor Swift loves her fans and loves to give back to them. Recently, throughout the pandemic, it’s no secret that many people have been struggling financially and have lost their jobs. One of Taylor’s fans tweeted about how she was unable to donate to one of Taylor’s charities because she was unemployed. Taylor reached out to the fan saying that she saw her tweet about being stressed out about money. That’s not all — she even sent her $3,000 to help her out in her time of need.
3 Jon Bon Jovi
Jon Bon Jovi gave back to one of his biggest fans in the best way. Branka Delic was set to get married in Las Vegas, and with the help of social media, she pleaded to have him walk her down the aisle. He was playing a show in Las Vegas the same night as her wedding, and after seeing the social media campaign, he decided to make a stop at the wedding. He made her dreams come true by walking her down the aisle to her new husband. The chapel held a lot of significance to him as well, as it was the same chapel that he married his wife in 1989.
2 David Harbour
David Harbour went above and beyond for one of his fans. She tweeted him asking if he would take senior photos with her. He told her he would do it if the tweet got 25,000 retweets. Of course, the internet did its thing, and she got all of the retweets plus more. Of course, he followed up on his promise and took senior photos with her, where he also wore a sweatshirt with the school’s name on it, and he also held a trombone. The pictures from the shoot were epic, and it will definitely go down as one of the coolest things a celebrity has ever done for a fan, hands down.
1 Shaquille O’Neal
Shaquille O’Neal went the extra mile for a fan recently. He was shopping in Atlanta when he walked into a jewelry store. Inside, a man was buying an engagement ring. He wanted the ring, of course, but couldn’t afford it as he was asking how much it would be to pay it off. Shaq stepped in, where he offered to pay for the ring for him. At first, he didn’t want to take Shaq’s money, but he insisted, as he’s always striving to do something good for other people every time he goes out.
