iCarly - i spy a teen (i)dol!

So, here I am almost 2 months since my last blog - been quite a while. I have been working hard, and had a business trip out in LA. And, wouldn’t you know it, as I am meeting with one celebrity (at a very posh Santa Monica restaurant, if I may add), sitting to the table next to me is teen star, Miranda Cosgrove, aka, iCarly.

Now, I will be honest, I recognized her face, but had no idea who she was, or how famous she was or what show she was on or what movies she was in. The fact that she was being woo’ed by the execs of Neutrogena at the table, did give me some inclination that she was famous.

Look, I know many teen stars - Donny Osmond, Leif Garrett, The Brady’s, Susan Dey, etc. But hey - thats my generation. As for the younger generation, I do know Miley Cyrus, but it sort of stops there. Ok, maybe one more - those High School Musical kids.

Something told me this young, fresh faced kid at the next table was a famous teen idol. How does one confirm this? Easy! Simply follow one of the execs from Neutrogena as they are leaving the table to the restroom and ask them a simple question: ’My daughter loves the girl at your table! What’s her name and what show is she on again?’

Once I got the information, I quickly made my way to her table, addressed her by her name (Miranda Cosgrove), told her how much my daughter is a fan of her show (iCarly), and could we have a photo.

She bought it, hook, line and iSinker.

And so, now my celebrity law of attraction as given me an iPhoto with iCarly and iMarshall.
