Demi Lovato in NYC

Fresh off a new book release, album release, and currently a judge on "X Factor", I don't know how in the world the kind-hearted Demi Lovato had time to meet me on her recent trip to NYC.  Well she did!  At first, I took a group picture with her inside a office building, but one of my friends couldn't get there in time.  So, her security guard, said it was unlikely my friend could get a picture, so I felt bad.  So, Demi was in the car on a conference call parked outside so I waved to her acknowledging my friend wanted a picture.  Then, Demi rolled down the car window all the way and took a picture with both her and me while also personalizing an autograph out to me which was nice of her.  She was so kind to me and my friend and she was so appreciative of the support and words I said to her.  Even her security guard said he will remember me now and I was like Oh My God!  Rock on Demi and Max the security guard!

Sir Ian McKellen in NYC

Last night, actor Sir Ian McKellen was out and about promoting his new show upcoming on Broadway and I guess the upcoming Hobbit film as well.  He told me upon his arrival that he would take a photograph with me on his way out later in the night.  So, as he is about to leave, his assistant was collecting items from others at the venue to get signed by McKellen.  However, for me I just wanted a photograph with the legendary actor so I asked the assistant and he was unsure if McKellen could comply with the time constraints.  So, the assistant after getting the items signed for the others brings me inside the studio to get a photograph with McKellen.  McKellen even positioned us so the photograph would come out crisp clear and took his glasses off for the photo.  He shook my hand and thanked me for my support of his acting.

Orlando Bloom in NYC
