Yet again, I had to lie my way in at this off-site show, way downtown.
The snotty Asian dude with the clipboard wasn't having it, so I decided to try my luck with the head PR chick. I "explained" to her that a mistake had been made, and that, of course, my name should be on the list. (and it damn well should!) For some reason, she assumed that I was from Knight Ridder, and asked if I was Steven. Well, duh, I concurred, and she told me to get a pass from the aforementioned snotty Asian dude, who was much less snotty when issued orders from his boss chick.
The show took forever to start because so many celebs were doing red carpet. The red carpet at the end of the show was madness: it took me 15 minutes to even exit the building. And we're not even talking A-list celebs -- it's more like Shannon Dougherty, Lil Kim, some guy from N'Sync, and Usher.
