It's not only American culture. The same would happen if she stops like that in the Philippines or Japan (well, it has happened already). Even in Australia, Paris or Brazil.
And yeah, I would be losing my ish over simply seeing her. It's called STANNING.
Even celebrities get shook in her presence, e.g. Anne Hathaway loosing her cool in front of the Queen on live TV.
I'm American, and I take issue with that particular facet of American culture. I don't really care how it is in other places, as I'm not there, lol. Also, it's possible to keep your composure while (see: Anne Hathaway's reaction) when in the presence of your fave . Not being able to do that just seems really immature and weak to me.
