This summer I committed a reporter felony and asked a celeb for an autograph.
To be fair, it was part of a gift.
Common was the celeb and he couldn’t have been cooler about it (after his bodyguard almost beat me up). My friend loved the signature that I paired with his published Esquire article that included a recipe he crafted for…Common.
Last night Michigan Avenue Magazine hosted a party for Common’s foundation and I found myself brazen enough to go up to him and tell him how much my friend loved and appreciated his gift.
I have a feeling a guy who is as nice as he is, meets a thousand people like me… so I’m sure he had no idea who I was or what I was talking about (to be fair I had dark hair then) but he pretended he did and was very charming and nice.
My photographer friend Jeff Schear saw us talking and snapped this shot of us.
See how nervous I was to approach him? I didn’t even think to do a Zoolander face or pop and lock an arm.
Some Celebs really are the good guys.
