I just can't resist sharing you this story. Princess One has an independent study due for submission this June during their school's open house. Ever since she reached 3rd grade, she and her classmates have been hammered with writing reports that require research. This year, she decided to write a research paper on Victoria Justice, you know that actress in the Nickelodeon series Zoey 101 and Victorious. Oh, my goodness! My daughter is so star-struck that she went to the extent of sending Victoria Justice a letter to ask her questions for her report.
I remember following my favorite celebrity when I was young, but only secretly, through the news and shows she starred in. When I saw her do a movie shoot in the college I attended to, I even played it cool by surreptitiously looking at her, and never intended to ask an autograph. I guess because my friends then eschewed the idea of following celebrities that I vowed never to ask for anything from any celebrity - not a picture, nor an autograph, nor anything at all. Well, I accepted the fact that times have changed, so when Princess One finished the letter, I mailed it in for her, with the warning that Victoria Justice is always busy so she might, or she might not respond to her. If Victoria responds, I'll let you know, my friends. If not, then that means she didn't. How about you, did you or your kid contact a celebrity? What was the outcome?
