    I was at the ASCAP Expo this year and before it started I knew that Max Martin would be arround for the ASCAP Awards... So I knew where the venue was and hang arround in the Lobby of the Hotel.. After Ammo and Shellback came through the Lobby I was like: omg... I would die if Max Martin would walk in here also... A few minutes later... He did!!! I actually died!! But I was brave enaugh to say "hi" to him and ask him for a picture. He was very very friendly and offered me to shake hands and he asked me where I was from and what I do.. I said to him: "Congrats on your fifth" because I knew that he won "Songwriter of the Year" AGAIN!! ^^ He said "thank you" MAX MARTIN!!!: He asked me if I would also go into the awards and I was like: "Maybe sneaking in" haha. Next year!!
