The most famous person I met is probably Nicolas Sarkozy, the current French president. I met him about 15 years ago, when he was the mayor of Neuilly sur Seine, he married one of my friends - when I say he married, I means, he officiated ! In France the legal wedding is in the TownHall, not in Court, and the mayor or townhall officials are the officiants.
I also met with the former President, Jacques Chirac, also when he was the mayor of Paris. I was singing in a choir and we gave a concert in the Paris Townhall.
With the same choir, I also met with Johnny Halliday. He's a famous French rock singer, I think he's a little bit known in the US (I saw him 2 weeks ago as a jury in charm school, lol). Well, he needed some chorists for a TV show, and I was lucky to be picked (we were doing random selections amongst the volunteers). I was very impressed, strangely, I did not expect to be impressed but he really has something impressive. I asked for autographs and a picture (my mom has been a big fan since she was 15, I wanted this for her !!).
Other than this, all the other famous people that I met are salsa musicians. You might not know them - to know them you have to know salsa music... but if you know salsa music, you know them !! I happen to have been really into salsa, enough to not only dance but also sing, and I did not miss one concert when I could... One thing after another, you meet one guy, then two, then the next concert one of them introduces you to the third one... etc. I have pics with people like Ray Barretto (the summer before he died), Johnny Pacheco, Roberto Roena, Jose Alberto El Canario, the singers from El Gran Combo, all the members from Spanish Harlem Orchestra, etc. I have spent some time (dinners, drinks, etc) with Jimmy Bosch, Frankie Vazquez, Ray de la Paz... In fact, all the salsa musicians are super cool guys. So if you want to know them you just go and talk to them, and most of the time it's easy because the dancers are more interested in dancing and meeting the other dancers... so you don't have to fight ! I guess it's not the same for actors !

They were playing at my college stadium the following night, and they were at the bar for karaoke that we went to... needless to say I was downing LITs all night, and we were hanging out with their crew, and I walked up to the guy Adam and was like
"It's my birthday! It's my birthday!" and he was really snotty and standoffish to everyone so I yelled at him..."Well, guess what? I bought U2 tickets at MSG instead of your concert cause their a lot cooler than you, Bono's the sh%&!" My friends were ready to die... and the rest of the band was cracking up... The other part that made the night was that I sang karaoke and the band members, sans Adam, really loved it!!! It made my night... I swear it was the alcohol talking.... but he is no Bono lolol
