Despite befriending Spears, Ghalib said he’ll continue following her. “I think she’s awesome,” Ghalib remarked in his first sit down interview, which aired last night. “I think she’s a great person.
Regarding Spears’ unpredictability, Ghalib talked about the infamous stolen lighter. “We’d been out driving for about six hours,” he said. “And I just stuck with her the whole time.
