Often celebrities seem to live on another planet. The glitz and glamour accompanying a life in the fast lane accessorizes celebrities with fame and near-myth. On Friday, however, a star came down to Earth, making a devoted fan’s dream come true.
X-Games star Shaun White surprised senior Carly Monzo of Mount St. Joseph’s Academy by arriving at her school’s prom Friday night. Monzo “prom-posed” to White with one of White’s sponsoring products, GoPro Cameras. Monzo created a rap/poem of sorts, and got her friends to Tweet the video at White constantly. Little did she know, the star was about to crash into her world.
On prom night, Monzo was called on stage, unaware of the induing surprise. White appeared with his band, and proceeded to accompany Monzo for an unforgettable night. The incident is yet another case of a celebrity making himself less of an idol and icon, and more of a tangible human being just looking to have a good time. Kudos to White for making a girl’s dream come true.
