Your favorite producers and DJs are real people, just like you. That means they have embarrassing interactions with celebrities and icons — just. like. you. After all, no matter how big a DJ gets, there’s always a bigger fish in the ocean.
Three days ago, Twitter user @yusufyuie asked, “What’s ya most awkward or interesting celebrity interaction you have had?” This spawned a litany of answers from not only normal people, but also those that normal people might commonly refer to as celebrities.

DJing for Chief Keef at Rock The Bells. We never met, I put together his entire set with my own tracks cuz his team only had bad mixtape rips, while on stage someone kept running up to tell me different songs to play and setting off gun sound fx NONSTOP. Then he left. The end. https://t.co/W2IDgDG1gQ

Tyler the creator loves skinny dudes in vans, and no one told me this until his arm was over my shoulder hitting on me. I told him my name was Kyle. 10/10 experience https://t.co/pwWFIZ6eft
