well, I hung out with a friend with all the members of the Hush sound after a concert for about a good 20 minutes. It was cool, we talked about music and food and something about couches. and I met Sam from Phantom Planet in the Honda Civic Tour... do those count?

we started talking through his website and i went to their concerts a lot. he's just very cool and in-touch with his fans, so we became friends, but she was paranoid and strange. they ended up divorcing eventually (though not over me, haha).


wow he seems like a cool guy. i always love when celebs are in touch with their fans like that & actually seem to care about them.

I'm friends with Phil Bildner, and (kind of) Laurie Halse Anderson. They are both authors. Phil writes mostly childrens books, and Laurie writes young adult books (Speak, Twisted ect. ect.) I've met Phil, had lunch, and that was it.

I don't know if these people count at celebs.
And if you don't believe me just put your hands on me

She's really, really nice.  And cool.  And she's got so much energy!  I like her a lot.

Nah, they are just like anyone else.  You can meet people just like them walking down the street.  The only reason I became a fan of VC was because I really felt her music.

I can be friends with the janitor or dishwashers just as much as a CEO or rockstar...maybe even more so because they tend to be less jaded in one way or another.

I'm not really freinds with anyone right now.
