“Stand Up!”

Nothing will keep me from an interview- not even a Chicago blizzard.

Michigan Avenue Magazine threw it’s first annual holiday party Tuesday night at Manor, and the weather couldn’t have been worse. My wonderful photog Vince and I arrived at Manor wearing ski coats, hoods pulled up, and boots- the best part about being media is that you can get away with dressing like that while the rest of the party is rockin’ suits and bare legs.

Ludacris arrived on “rap star” time- an hour and a half late. By the time he and his entourage graced the media stage, the enitre room of 300 people was focused on the star.

Gulp.

I really don’t get nervous or star struck- but with all of my peers gazing on… butterflies came out of no where.

As soon as NBC finished thier interview, Jason Binn ushered us in and my anxiety melted instantly.

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is so chill, yet engaging… and he really had fun with our questions.

After the interviews were done- Luda headed into the kitchen for some snacks then settled with friends and Mich Ave peeps into the back VIP booth. Although he stayed seated most of the night, he was enjoyng his friends dance- and seemed to be having a blast.
