Demi Lovato: I almost ran over Paul McCartney

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.

    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!

    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?..."

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

      A demi-lovato is a small lovato; much like Starbucks "Tall", "Grande", "Venti" and soon to come "Trenti", which are different sizes of lovaticinnos.

      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.

      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.
