WOW Report reader Jeremy Rockerboy emailed me this morning to tell me about a celebrity encounter he had: “I met Die Antwoord yesterday in the most randomest of places in Chicago. So I’m going to Karyn’s on Green, this vegetarian restaurant I go to. And I walk in, and all the employees are randomly gone for some reason. So I walk up to the front desk, and all the way in the back of the restaurant I see two figures out of my peripheral vision, and then I don’t believe my eyes. It’s Die Antwoord sitting down waiting to pay the check for their meal! So I start saying ‘oh my god’ in my head, over and over until it comes out of my mouth and the words get louder and louder. And they both look at me, and I’m like making hand gestures like, can I come over there to you guys? Because I didn’t want to be rude and just walk up to them. And the guy said yeah sure. So I walk up to them and I go, can I have a picture of you guys. And so the girl is so sweet, she walks over to the booth side where the guy is sitting, and they both take a picture for me. I wanted to take a picture with both of them, but I didn’t know the girl was gonna move so I didn’t know how to react, but the picture was satisfying enough. I got my own personal picture of them posing for my iphone camera! It was such a surreal moment because that morning I was singing ‘I Fink U Freaky by them.’ So yeah, I attached the picture that I took of them here. What a cool day right?” TOTALLY.
So I think I’ve mentioned my dentist is right in the thick of Rodeo Drive, which I love, it’s the only reason I go to him. That and he’s REALLY CUTE, OMG. So there I was after my appointment, high as a kite, stumbling around and drooling slightly, with a big old puffed-up face, looking like an absolute maniac, when who do I run into but TEEN HEARTTHROB LOGAN LERMAN!
LOGAN: Thanks, man (shakes my hand, very politely)
ME: How exciting about Three Musketeers coming out! (He nods) Have you wrapped up Perks of Being a Wallflower? And what are you doing now?
LOGAN: Uh, yeah Wallflower wrapped a little while ago, and now I’m just starting press for Musketeers.
By now, he’s looking a little wild-eyed, like WHO IS THIS CREEPY OLD QUEEN WITH THE STRING OF DROOL DANGLING FROM HIS CHIN WHO KNOWS WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT ME AND HOW DO I GET AWAY?
“No, no, no,” I assure him, “it’s OK, I’m a BLOGGER!
So then he REALLY looks scared, but he graciously allows me to take some pictures of him, one of which actually turned out, which is surprising as I AM TOTALLY OUT OF MY MIND. Then he shook my hand again and made a quick getaway. Let me just say: He was totally adorable but VERY TINY. Like Elijah Wood tiny. And that was my Logan Lerman experience.
