Thank goodness Demi Lovato hit her brakes: The 19-year-old singer says she recently almost ran over Paul McCartney.
"So.... today I was pulling into a parking space that some guys were standing in the middle of, and almost hit them," she tweeted early Tuesday morning.
And then one of the gentleman turned around....and it just so happened to be a Beatle. "Yes, YOU HEARD ME," Lovato tweeted. "SIR PAUL McCARTNEY!!! He was so sweet!! Can't believe I met him today.. WOW!"
Oh, and also: "I can't believe I almost ran over a Beatle....... "
Phew! Talk about a close one. But speaking of McCartney, his 2009 reunion performance with Ringo Starr for the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert will soon be available for New Yorkers to view.
Their gig was the first time the two had performed on an American stage together in 17 years, and New York fans will get to watch it on Sunday, April 29 via New York's Thirteen.
The story was just retracted. it was Jesse McCartney not Paul. She unfortunately was leaving rehab....
I had a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch.
Glenn and Alex Winter reading is Fundamental!!!!!
This wouldn't eve be a story if it wasn't like the 20th time this happened. "Lovato just seems to be there every time I'm crossing the street", Says the former Beatle, "it's getting a bit creepy". McCartney has filed for an order of protection.
My (litereal) brush w/ fame was backing out at a Springsteen Concert in the Forum in 2002, and nearly running over Wayne Gretzky. It was a mad scene and I had to be aggressive getting out of my spot, and he walked right behind my car, and someone yelled out Watch Out! Its The Great One!
it's sad to have this as your claim to fame.
Wouldn't it have been ironic if the person who gave so much to modern music in the past 50 years got killed by someone with no intrinsic musical value?
I was kind of thinking the same thing... actually, I kind of think something similar whenever I hear Bollywood: "how depressing is it that the people/culture who inspired The Beatles are now trying to emulate Britney Spears?..."
i almost ran over reba
she wasnt as nice about it, as paul ..........
As a Canadian and a meat eater, I would have preferred if she *had* run him over.
It's amazing how she was able to recognize Paul. I mean look at him; he doesn't even look human anymore.
What's incredible is, how so many of you have nothing better to do. I have never read such nonsense over nothing, get a life, job, girlfriend anything!!!!
she should have hit that old fart then back up and run over him again just to make sure she nailed him. dat man done used up his 15 minutess back in 1967 when da beatles wus last hot. after dat day were stale ol cheese likes da kind day gives me in da ol folk home here. now I 101 year man. and dats sir paul mcartney he aint dat far behind me in age.so he useless like all us ol folk. after she run him over and he dies, da peoples cry for a week den day forget about hims. boo hoo hoo hoo.. dat right. you heard da truth from da 101 colored fella. dat all i speaks is da trut.
Apparently my sisters fiance almost ran over Conan Obrien in Toronto.
The wind must have moved Conans hair and he saw him in time.
Demi almost ddid'nt make it through a real bad depression just a year or so ago,so great to see her back and looking like she's doing great.
As far as almost backing over anyone,it happens everyday.
Sunny days to you,Ms.Lovato.
That would have been something.....Headline in "The Sun".......Disney Channel C-list half-talent kills Beatle!!!!
Pork Scratchings and Scotch darling?
She's actually pretty talented. i doubt you've ever heard her sing a single note, yt you're ready to label her as a C-list with no talent. Try a litte ducation. It doesn't hurt that much.
You try ducation fuktard.
I doubt she exchanged a single word with the fellows standing in the parking space. If, by some coincidental miracle, she really was in the same garage as PMc and actually had to slam on her brakes because she wasn't paying attention to the fact that there were some people standing in the parking space she wanted to turn into, I suspect he (and the others) did nothing more than cuss at her, get out of her way, and go on about their business. I would like to see the bit he did with Ringo; I think he came out and they did "Birthday" for Ringo's 70th.
"So.... today I was pulling into a parking space that some guys were standing in the middle of, and almost hit them," she tweeted early Tuesday morning."
Maybe if she wasn't tweeting while trying to park a car there would have been no problem? Arrest her.
Kenny: Wild guess here but I think she means Paul McCartney was nice about almost being run over. Whether he was standing in the parking space or not, it's the person driving a 4,000-pound vehicle who is responsible for watching out for pedestrians.
Jesus is the answer. He is the ONLY way to the Father in Heaven. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, repent, obey and be saved!
Jesus is the answer, eh? What exactly was the question? Honestly, it doesn't matter what the topic is, we always end up with some demented Jesus Freak making some lame ass comments. Get back under your rock loser.
We were more popular than Jesus, remember?
Jesus is just some dead jew from 2000 years ago. get a life.
Several billion people disagree with your idea.
Jesus was a f@g so go eff yourself.
The Beatles were bigger.
How can it be sweet when someone stands in the middle of a parking space??? If it had been an average Joe, she'd be cussing like hell!
Haters-get a life and some therapy.
Butch: You'll start looking like your grandmother too someday. It happens. Deal with it and quit being so superficial.
Paul looks like my grandmother
did she literally ran him over, or ran over him but safely landed on his c0ck
What is a demi lovato and why should I care?
A demi-lovato is a small lovato; much like Starbucks "Tall", "Grande", "Venti" and soon to come "Trenti", which are different sizes of lovaticinnos.
That was funny
That concert was in London and as stated "17 years on American Stage"
Awww he was so sweet to a pretty girl. You normally dont see that.
...but he's been dead for years!...
We were almost one brake light closer to a Beatles reunion
Mostly I'm impressed that she knows who Paul McCartney is unlike Bieber. Hooray for knowing your music history Demi!
...and for not making another Beatle history!
While I'm never really opposed to things to make fun of Beiber for... the idea that he actually didn't know who Paul McCartney seems absurd even for him. Do you have a source on this, because if true, it'd really be a funny read.
"Their gig was the first time the two had performed on stage together in 17 years"
...except for when they performed together in 2002, at the tribute concert for George Harrison.
Nice catch Glenn. Clearly CNN knows about as much Beatle history as what's her face there.
American stage...read it again.
AMERICAN stage. The Concert for George was filmed at the Royal Albert Hall, which is not located in the U.S.
Why don't you use the complete sentence: "Their gig was the first time the two had performed on an American stage together in 17 years" According to Wikipedia, that tribute concert was in London.
"an American stage." Not "a stage." The 2002 George Harrison tribute was in London at the Royal Albert Hall. Duh.
I think it pretty clearly says American stage (unless it was edited after the fact)
it's on an american stage
It says an American stage. Georges hurrah was in England.
the first time they performed together in the UNITED STATES. The concert for George Harrison was in the UK
Actually they said it was the first time on an American stage that they've played together in 17 years. The tribute for George was in London. This point goes to CNN. Sorry :)
The story say's first time in the USA in 17 years, the George Harrison gig was in the Royal Albert Hall....On the other side of the pond.
