Priyanka Chopra made waves at the Global Citizen concert in New York

Agenda: Fangirling over Metallica and chilling with Wolverine

If taking over the world one red carpet at a time wasn’t enough, Priyanka Chopra attended the Global Citizen festival in New York too. For the uninitiated, she outlined the goals of the Global Poverty Project, which is overseeing the festival: sanitation, gender equality and clean water. Coldplay's Chris Martin – also the curator of the festival – joined her on stage to announce the line-up of artists for the Mumbai edition. (PS: Here's how you can score free tickets!

Here’s everything PC got up to on stage and behind-the-scenes:

Oh, and she piped in (politely!) when Chris Martin confused Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor Khan for one person

(Watch after the 5:20 mark)

Fangirled over Metallica, as one should.

Her regular backstage updates kept FOMO at bay.

She hung out (and clearly broke the ‘no photo’ rule) with her squad backstage.

Afterwards, she hung out with Jada Pinkett Smith and Salma Hayek. Someone needs to cast the three of them together in a movie STAT!
