Unlike most, I spent my Friday night in an Indigo rather than at a downtown club. Gayle Forman was in town signing copies of her book, If I Stay. Alongside was the man who stars as Adam in the film-adaptation, Jamie Blackley. I however, have never read the book but I was one of the fortunate people who had the chance to see the movie the night before. I also had the opportunity to get my photograph with both Jamie and Gayle. I would like to thank Indigo Teen and Indigo Green Room for putting on such an amazing event.
“Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.” – Gale Forman, If Stay (and Jamie Blackley’s favourite quote from the film)
Photographs can be seen on my official website in the “Celebrity” section under 2014.
I had the chance to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this past Tuesday at the Canadian premiere. Jena Malone who plays Johanna Mason and Sam Claflin who plays Finnick Odair were both in attendance. The two newcomers are incredible in their parts, as are all the other actors in the film. I won’t waste your time talking about the movie now as I have put together a short list of 6 differences between the book and movie that can be read here.
We Day is an educational event and the movement of our time—a movement of young people leading local and global change. We Day is tied to the yearlong We Act program, which offers curricular resources, campaigns and materials to help turn the day’s inspiration into sustained activation.
Demi Lovato, the award-winning singer-songwriter and Free The Children ambassador performed two songs on the We Day Toronto stage; Skyscraper (with special guest Darren Criss) and Neon Lights. In the past Demi Lovato’s participated at We Day Vancouver and We Day Seattle. She’s also donated over $10,000 from selling her old clothing on Ebay, raised money on the Price Is Right, and just recently got back from a volunteer trip to Kenya.
It’s that time of year again… TIFF is here! And I celebrated it in the only way I know how, by taking pictures of celebrities I love at premieres. I decided to kick off the festival with The Railway Man and Parkland (at Roy Thomson Hall). I had the joy of seeing Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Kelly Rowan, Colin Hanks, Tom Welling, Zac Efron and Jacki Weaver. On top of that, I got a photograph with both Kelly and Zac.
Saturday, May 18th marked the date of the DEMI Buyout in Toronto, Canada. The group started out by meeting up in Dundas Square before making their way over to the HMV Superstore where they proceeded to buy Demi Lovato’s brand new fourth studio album. For those who wanted, they could donate their album(s) to Sick Kids. In total 25 albums were donated to the Hospital in Toronto. This way you can support your favourite artist while giving back to the community. Special thanks to Cody Reid for doing both videography and photography at the event. The completed video will be up soon, there have been some technical difficulties. For more information on future Buyouts and/or events related to Demi Lovato in Toronto follow @DemiBuyoutTO.
