- The artists & celebrities are just people.
While you may be in a state of hero worship induced catatonics as you are about to shake Matt Key’s hand (@TheMattKey) for the first time, he is just a normal guy and he will have a conversation with you as a normal person if you let him.
I remember being at a convention in Sacramento when my wife saw the WWE wrestler Shamus walking on the convention floor. By no means is she a Shamus worshipper or was he her specific ‘cup of tea’ but she did have a fangirl reaction of ‘OhMyGawdOhMyGawdOhMyGawd’ and by the time she came down off of that high he had walked past. She talked about it later and regretted not going up to him and saying .. well anything really.
While it is normal to have these freak outs realize that that 15-20 seconds your eyes are sweating because “Chris Evans is right THERE” you are not having a meaningful fan interaction with the person. And in all likelihood these moments are as awkward for them as they are for you.
