But on Thursday, before playing a concert in Macon, Georgia, country superstar Lambert was the one excited to meet someone she adores: reality star Honey Boo Boo.
The "House That Built Me" singer met 7-year-old Alana Thompson, of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," and her family at the venue just outside their tiny hometown of McIntyre, Georgia.
"They are so sweet," Lambert, 29, captioned a snap she posted to Twitter of herself alongside Honey Boo Boo, the pageant queen's parents, June "Mama" Shannon and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, and older sisters Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, Anna "Chickadee" Shannon, and Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon. She even invoked Honey Boo Boo's signature phrases when she wrote, "You'd better redneckognize!"

Mrs. Blake Shelton is such a fan of the pint-size pageant princess, that she even dressed like her for Halloween, donning a poofy, bright pink dress, bouncy curls, a sparkling tiara, and, of course, Honey Boo Boo's I'm-trying-to-look-grown-up-and-sophisticated-so-I-can-win-a-pageant-face.
When a fan asked via Twitter if Lambert had shown Honey Boo Boo and the gang her costume, Lambert answered that she, "showed the whole crowd!"
The show, which has been called "either the end of civilization as we know it, or a loving picture of joyous redneck family values" by USA Today, is not for everyone. However, Lambert has been addicted since the first episode on August 8.
Looks like the feeling is mututal!
