Reaching For The Stars: 5 Celebrity Experiences to Remember
Considering yourself a true fan? Or simply want to treat yourself with a memorable experience with your favorite sports star, musician or TV celebrity? No need to queue for an autograph anymore — here are 5 ways to help you get closer to the stars.
A number of online platforms now offer items which either belonged to celebrities, or were signed by them, or even created by them! For example, Celebrity Auctions on eBay list merchandise like a drawing hand-signed by Tim Burton, monogrammed stationery owned by Marylin Monroe or a photo of Pamela Anderson with a personal autograph.
However, be cautios — check the ratings and reviews and request a certificate of authenticity where possible.
If you are willing to spend a buck on charity and get to actually enjoy it, celebrity experience auctions might be your thing. Services like The Celebrity Auction or Charity Buzz allow to bid for meetings with movie stars, models, athletes, chefs, musicians or businessmen —and the proceeds are going to the charity of yours or celebrity’s choice.
Among the experiences listed are the options to see Lady Gaga in at her concert and meet her after the show, getting a VIP Yankee Stadium tour with a former World Series champion or shooting a backstage photo with Demi Lovato. Although those don’t come cheap — a couple thousands of dollars at minimum.
Celebrity for Hire
Have a special event coming — and not short in budget? Services like Millionaires Concierge allow to book a celebrity to attend. Whether you always dreamt of Enrique Iglesias singing at your wedding, or wish to highlight a corporate event with Cher appearance, or plan to dance the night away on the ball with Sting performing live, that might be your choice.
With a bit of luck, you might have caught the launch of New York City Experiences by Airbnb. As a part of the campaign, Airbnb offered exclusive one-time Experiences with iconic New Yorkers.
Those included a personal shopping trip with ‘Sex and the City’ star Sarah Jessica Parker, trip around the local gem spots with actor and musician Ansel Elgort.
Celebrities on Blockchain
When simply paying for a meeting with celebrity isn’t enough, the new technologies step in. TokenStars, the first celebrity management platform on blockchain, allows to buy tokens to actually support celebrities’ careers — and to spend those tokens on curated experiences with both professionals and rising stars in sports and entertainment.
Celebrities can use the platform to offer exclusive experiences (locker-room tour, dinners, merchandize) or even endorsement opportunities for brands. Fans, in turn, can use tokens not only to get those experiences, but also to participate in competitions or sign up for a VIP chat.
