I've met Lulu. She was really down to earth and lovely. Only ever met X Factor contestants after that. All lovely besides one from Liverpool who I shan't mention, absolute horrible rude DIVA.

I met Alexandra Burke backstage at her tour. She is so so nice and has a lot of time for her fans. Her laugh is really loud though.

I've met Nicola Roberts. She was how I was expected her to be, sweet and fairly quiet.

Met Ian Brown (Stone Roses) in a club once. He was rather drunk.

LIGHTS

I haven't met any other celebrities so I have no basis for comparison but I met LIGHTS earlier this year after seeing her in concert. It was raining and around 1AM but she was really nice and so sweet, she spent quite a while talking with fans, taking pictures, signing things, she even filmed a video message for somebody who couldn't make it to the show.

It was really fun. My best friend won tickets and I already live in California so we went. I live in NorCal so it was only about a 30 minute plane ride the day before and we just hung out around LA for a day. It was really strange because we were literally in front of the hotel Whitney Houston died in when she died. We had no idea, but then someone came and told us and we were completely shocked.

Anyway, we were on the red carpet on the end after they all come in and right before we all go inside so quite a few of them stopped to sign autographs and talk. Kathy Griffin came by quite a few times in different outfits. But yea, like I said. Nicki Minaj is bat shit crazy. Something about her is just really strange. I think it might be because she was in character that night for equally as psychotic performance, but it was bizarre. Me and my friend even made it in the Yahoo article about it. It was a really awesome night. We were there for like 8 hours, though. Then the next day we went back home.

I met Alexandra Burke & found her to be rude!!
We were backstage ... I asked for a quick pic & she just f**cked off into her tour bus!..
Btw- there wasn't that many people around either so it's not as if she was bombarded with fans!
That was back in the day when "All Night Long" was a hit!
Perhaps she's changed her ways now that she's flopped!!

The nicest person I've ever met was without a doubt Marina & The Diamonds!!!!!!!!

Met Heidi and Keisha from Sugababes back in 2009, Heidi was lovely and spent time with my little sister, Keisha seemed to be in a world of her own but wasn't rude and eventually had pictures..

Also met Tom, Nathan and Max from The Wanted in London.. I expected Tom and Max to be mouthy idiots but were the complete opposite, happy to talk for quite a while and Nathan, I wanted to speak to but I just fell to pieces, Kind of weird at my age but he does strange things to me :P

Have met Alexandra Burke about four times. From when she was just starting out, to her tour. Each time she was lovely and had so much time for her fans...not just signing autographs but also talking to them individually for a decent amount of time. There were quite a lot of fans there one particular time, but she still spent ages talking and signing things.

Yes i met Chuck Berry when he did a concert at Brentwood in the 90s he was approachable and even signed my programme.

But somebody tried videoing the concert on a recorder he went mad at the gig and would not carry on until the video camera had been confiscated.

McFly 4 times very quickly. Danny is probably the nicest from what I've seen but also not the sharpest too in the box.
Billie Piper at a book signing - She was lovely and paid me a compliment on my height.
Geri Halliwell at a book signing - Was underwhelmed by her. Wasn't what I expected, considering I loved the Spice Girls when I was younger, and hardly paid attention to us. Still got a lovely photo with her though.
Olly Murs - Really down to earth and friendly. Took a photo with me even though he wasn't meant to as we were in a TV studio.

I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them right now.

I met stuart adamson of big country, and the other band member, just like gary numan, stuart always had time for the fans, before the show, and after

He would spend a good half hour before the show, usualy round 3pm taalking to the fans, telling them what he has been up to

Even met hima few times at autogrpahing session, like when a new album is released, and done with in hmv

And today is his 11 annivesary

I met Posh Spice in a restaurant I and my mum were at. All the diners had the chance to say hello and I have to say she was wonderful. This was at the height of the Spice Girls. The funny thing was that I was awestruck and just said "Victoria I think you are lovely... this is my mum".. My mum was so funny and ended up having a long chat about how girl groups have to set an example to young girls - I was sooo embarassed. But my mum got a kiss and handshake from her. We had photos - I think I have the only two photos where she is smiling! She totally surprised me and ever since then I've loved her!

A year later I won an internet competition to meet Emma Bunton in London and she was great too. We had a chat about music and girl groups. There was about 20 winners and she spent time with everyone. She was absolutely lovely. I thought I was on a roll and that I would meet a spice girl every year..but alas no - only Posh and Baby!

I also met a canadian celtic/world singer called Loreena McKennit - I was working in the merchandise stall voluntarily and she came to say thanks. She was lovely too. We had a chat about music but I was so tongue tied!! Anyway she was lovely too.

A few months ago I met John Taylor from Duran Duran at a book signing - I went with my sister who is a massive fan. I have to say he was a gent and so down to earth.

BUT my icing on the cake was...... Bananarama!! I met them twice - the first time in 2003 where I was with my friends who shouted out that I loved them so they said bring him backstage.. They were absolutely fantastic and posed for pics and autographs. Then they came out and did a full-on signing for the crowd so I decided to see them again and have more pics.

The second time I met them was in 2008 at a Pinktober charity event in London. After their set they went to the VIP section so I and my mates just hung around the entrance and waited... They came out to meet fans, sign autographs and pose for pics.. I loved them even more after that!

I've met McFly several times too (At signings)
They are lovely, but the second time I met them, I heard Danny commenting to Dougie how fit my friend who I'd gone with was! I was so heartbroken at the time because they are my absolute favourite band, and she wasn't really as into them, she'd just come with me - And was mad they'd noticed her and not me!

That was quite some years ago mind, I've got over it now I still love them!
Met them since at a signing, and they are just lovely, I know you don't get much time with them, but they really are just funny, genuine guys
