Michael Jackson was the kind of famous that really affected the central nervous system of his fans. I never quite understood the emotion of crying because of meeting someone who's famous, but this chick literally balls her eyes out when she encounters Jacko. On a side note, the face cover thing brings more attention to a person. Michael Jackson looks like the survivor of a medical epidemic or a zombie attack in this video!!!
Lady Antebellum is a group that continues to rise to the top of the ranks in the world of country music. Country artists, 9 times out of 10 are alot nicer to people, than musicians in other genres, and the ego factor is often times more sedated.

The Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California houses practice facilities for the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Sparks and superstar figure skating coach Frank Carroll. Because of this confluence, TSC is home to a remarkable 14 Olympians from the 2010 and 2008 games.
The facility is easily accessible, with public viewing areas situated near all of the ice rinks. The Lakers/Sparks space is more restricted, but basketball fans are allowed to meander around the entry and exit areas of the gated portion of the parking lot.
This logistical set up makes TSC an ideal venue to encounter many of these world class athletes. Below is directional information for the center and a list of the big names who hone their craft there.
When the terrible news that the Red Hot Chili Peppers were takin' a break came sliding down the mountain, I was on suicide watch for 2 days! I have since recovered and am happy to report that Flea is working with Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke on a supergroup called Atoms For Peace. Flea is a maniac on the bass and a good guy! Here he is meeting and jamming with fans!
New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter has built as rock solid of an image as any athlete in sports. The five-time world champion has accomplished this feat despite being recognized as one of the great playboys of the Western world.
The New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez holds the distinction of being one of the most talented, yet most controversial players in baseball. Rodriguez would boast epic regular season numbers, but be practically non-existent in the postseason. He would yearn to be loved by the masses, yet garner disdain from fans because he tried way too hard to be revered. He wanted to be like teammate Derek Jeter, instead his narcissistic tendencies placed him more in the vein of Barry Bonds.
