I see them but i usually just pass by them. Most of them don't want to be bothered. The ones i mostly saw are with their families and want some privacy

The only time I've ever seen a celebrity was during some music awards. We were not allowed to cross the street as he and his vehicle entourage were pulling up to a hotel.

I remember a lot of excited people and some of us were not so excited. Some were working and on their lunch break and couldn't cross the street to get to the store they wanted to get to. I couldn't cross the street to get to my bus stop, (ended up having to walk over 60 blocks to get home, further up the beach), so I was none too thrilled about this celebrity and his presidential type motorcade.

I don't even know who it was and frankly, didn't care. I just wanted to go home.

60 BLOCKS? That's like 3 hours or more.

I know. It took a long time and I was very unimpressed by the time I got home.

I was down near Ocean Dr and had to walk all the way up to 65th on the beach. I've not really cared about celebrities since then.

If you do see them it will most likely be in South Beach. Or also when there is a big event down here.

I used to see them and interact with them quite frequently when I used to work security at clubs and on movie sets. Yes, most of the time they don't want to be bothered by fans. So I never really paid any mind to them unless they spoke to me.

Some of them don't want to be bothered but some of them do. If you don't to be bothered, don't make a huge spectacle about your arrival.

By the way, I don't know who the celebrity was, don't care but may be someone will know who this is. I don't even care to look it up for proper spelling: Sugar Night or Sug Night or Sug Knight...whatever, that's what the girls were screaming. And I believe there was a shooting at or around that hotel later...don't remember if it was that night or the next but I do remember thinking I didn't care because he didn't have to walk home in the dark for 65 blocks in the humidity. He really pissed me off with his cars.

celebrities are douchebags! ive seen and met many of them in center city philadelphia. more often than not they dont want to talk or be bothered. which i can kind of understand, but hey, go work in an office if you dont want to be bothered...make 50k a year to push papers. sometimes its better not to pay them any attention.

That would have seriously ticked me off.

Some of them need to realize they're not spectacular and need a slice of humble pie.
