  • Have You Ever Met Anyone Famous?

    I've met:
    - Ian McKellen; my school is one of the best in the UK for equality, particularly in terms of gay rights, so he just came along to say well done and continue to promote equality. he met all the pupils involved in my school's equality team but also wanted to see a drama lesson which happened to be mine! we exchanged a look and I almost melted into a puddle
    - George Ezra; did a free gig in Bristol (same place where I discovered Lily & Madeleine) and I went along and at the end of the gig I snuck backstage and got a photo

    there's no denying that meeting famous people is a surreal and cool experience, and I wanna hear your storiessss

    I met Allyson Felix, who is only the greatest female track and field athlete of this generation. She competed at the IAAF World Relays here last year, and I had a one in a million shot of meeting her since I didn't buy, as I couldn't afford, the VIP tickets. When the games were over, I just got as close to the track as possible (there was a security gate separating the bleachers from the track), and a guy next to me shouted her name when he saw her, and she came over to my area. She was literally the only athlete who did that, and she just took photos with everyone, myself included, and that moment was literally one of the Top 5 greatest moments of my life thus far. Possibly #1. She's a total sweetheart, and it was literally one of those times when everything you've ever thought of one of your heroes was proven true.

    I met Veronica Campbell-Brown, a similarly excellent athlete (among my Top 5 all-time faves) at the same venue some two minutes later. Best night of my life really.

      -Shakira: in 2005 and 2007 at TRL, I have FijaciÚn Oral and Oral Fixation signed
      -Lily Allen: I met her in 2009, she's just lovely.
      -Katy Perry: in 2008, when she used to be cool she was really nice and did a splendid acoustic session to promote her debut.
      -Rihanna: in 2010, out of the hotel she was staying at in Milan. She didn't want to take a pic cause she had no make up on yet she was gorgeous, and she signed my GGGB and Rated R
      -Alesha Dixon: I think it was 2008, at TRL. She cracked me up, my friend and I told her that her shoes were great, and she showed us the unicorn on the sole of her shoes, lamenting the fact that it wasn't visible
      -Mariah Carey: she was promoting Memoirs at the Italian X-Factor, I met her in front of her hotel. She was hilarious She arrived with a black car, when she came out she looked a bit lost, as if she didn't expect a crowd of fans. But then she wore her shades and got her diva attitude back the funniest thing was that she signed every single cd there except my copy of Glitter
      -Taylor Swift
      -Leona Lewis
      -Alicia Keys
      -Royksopp
      -Hurts
      Also, I didn't mention Grimes (no one knew her here before Art Angels), I had a drink at the table next to hers at the venue of her concert in Turin in 2012. She was obviously high and had marijuana stickers on her red Mac laptop I got two of her albums autographed.

                          I've met Shirley (from Garbage). They were shooting a video yet we managed to do a little chat.

                          I've met many Turkish celebrities tho. In fact, one of my very good friends is one of the biggest female singers of Turkey.

                              I'm pretty sure I've mentioned these before but here we go...

                              Delta Goodrem - She did a surprise low-key fan meet-and-greet last year in Melbourne, announcing it on Facebook around 5pm, for about an hour later. Luckily it happened to be right near where I was living at the time! She was absolutely lovely, I've never been such a hot mess meeting someone in my life though. You can read the full messy recount here

                              Katy Perry - I won a competition to meet her around the time 'Teenage Dream' was released, it was quite the experience! She was super perky, but also super nice. She took the time to speak with everyone there, didn't seem rushed or bothered by anything. Some of you know the full version of the story, where she screams in face and then tells me show hopes I get laid

                              Kelly Clarkson - I got to meet her as part of a fan club meet-n-greet at Rod Laver Arena. She was wonderful, everything you'd expect she'd be. She was happy to pose for photos however people wanted and was happy to have a quick chat with everyone. She is actually tiny!

                              Paramore - Again, as part of a fan club meet-n-greet. Hayley, Taylor & Jeremy were good fun. This was right before Josh & Zac Farro left the band, those two were not into it at all, they looked like they'd rather be anywhere else. Hayley Williams is super tiny.

                              The Veronicas - Got to meet them as part of a concert meet-n-greet, they were also lovely. They are also absolutely tiny. We all got to go to a Q&A at the soundcheck, where they spoke quite openly and candidly to the group of us who were there about their troubles with the previous record label and the realities of working in the business.

                              I'm trying to remember any other minor encounters, like the time I stood next to Vanessa Amorosi at an MTV event or the time I saw Killing Heidi at the airport

                                Michael Stich - former tennis player and world #2 at a Saturn media store

                                Thomas Haas - current tennis player after a tennis match

                                Stefanie Graf - tennis legend - during her active years in Berlin 1999.

                                    The only person I met was Shirley Manson of the band Garbage! It was so cool! We went to their concert in 2013 during their "Not Your Kind Of People" tour. After the amazing concert, we went around the back of the building (where we parked, fortunately) and noticed a small group of people waiting.....we rushed over, and met the whole band as they were leaving! Each band member signed our CD booklet (we brought at least one cd booklet with the very doubtful chance of actually meeting them!) , and we got a picture with them! Such an awesome night! Garbage is one of my all time favorite bands/artists.
                                    Kylie Minogue, Garbage, Simply Red, Coldplay, U2, Janet Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, Tove Lo, Blue October, Godsmack
