'What is going on right now?': Emma Blackery unexpectedly stars at iPhone X launch
“I’ve had the weirdest 12 hours of my life,” says Emma Blackery, after unexpectedly starring during the iPhone X launch.
“What happened last night was absolutely crazy,” she tells Newsbeat.
“I was at home just watching TV, and suddenly my phone lit up with about 20 of my friends all saying the same thing.”
The unsigned singer and YouTuber’s face was broadcast to millions.
The 25-year-old had no idea it was coming.
“It was about 7pm in the evening, and I was already in bed, because basically I’m an old lady,” Emma explains.
She got a barrage of messages from her friends “and there was my face behind Eddie Cue [senior vice president of Apple], and my EP artwork with my name and the title.
“It was just absolutely mind blowing.”
Emma got on her own social media and caused a delightful Twitter storm expressing her delight – even if most of the posts aren’t suitable to publish here.
