I've only been asked for my autograph once after being a contestant for a beauty pagent. The little girl who asked me for it was the cutest little thing, probably much more gorgeous than me, even in my princess gown and all.
Yes, I'm no celebrity, however, in my everyday life, I do get a lot of gossip and slanderous attention. So I'd rather be a celebrity if so much negative attention is directed at me. It's very puzzling, does anyone else have such a problem? Are you the freaky loner everyone else talks about? Or do you gang up with others to talk about someone who's done nothing to you?
Thank goodness for the little angel who asked me for my autograph.
I USED to be a celeb, Queen La Dreama! In the 80's I was a humour columnist for the Ottawa Citizen, the major daily newspaper in Canada's capitol. It was fun going to a restaurant or shopping in a mall and having people come up and ask for my autograph!
Then, in 2001 I published my first children's novel and have two more kids books published since 2004. Before I came to Toronto I was a shopping mall celeb again only sometimes if I were walking through a mall I'd here a little kiddie scream and then they'd pull their parent after me. LOL I loved speaking at schools and that's where the kids got to know me.
The reason I'm in Toronto is because my publisher burned out and quit distributing and promoting my books so I came to T.O. to find a new one. I miss the kidlets.
Welcome to MM. I have only been here a short time. It is a wonderful place to play! For me, it has been good to step out of my "box" and see how other people live. Personally, I enjoy all the personalities that are here and the knowledge that is shared. I view many of these people as my friends now.
Something tells me you are going to have lots of fun here.
I'm not a celebrity, but I kinda, sorta, but not really, know how it feels to be one. I have signed autographs in two different capacties. As a rodeo cowboy, and as a singer/ musician. Also, did a couple of radio interviews. So, you don't HAVE to be a celebrity. You can get the same attention by doing crazy things, and people will THINK you are a celebrity.lol.
Mariana! You ARE a celebrity miss pretty britches.
