Stalking That Man El DeBarge


Oh, lordamercy!  My night was made.  There’s really not much to say other than I acted like a total crazy person stalking this man when he came to concert.

I don’t know if any of you have ever been on a stalking spree before, but there’s a process involved.  You, first and foremost, have to do your research.

  • Find out when the person is coming to town,
  • The hotel the person will be staying at,
  • The restaurants he’s likely to eat at while in town,
  • The cars he’ll be riding around in,
  • Someone who can give you the GPS coordinates of said car at a moment’s notice, and
  • Someone who can possibly get you front row seats along with backstage passes (namely the man himself)

Secondly, you have to make sure you look your absolute best, otherwise your chances are that much less.  What those less “chances” are is anyone’s guess though.  But dream on, I say!

El DeBarge

I’m pretty sure he was singing “Stay With Me” directly to me personally.  I mean—I don’t know who else he could have possibly been singing to when you really think about it.

I took a marriage license along in my purse on the stalking spree “just in case.”  I’m not sure how real I thought the “just in case” was going to be, but a girl can dream, can’t she?!

All I can say is—thank the heavens there is such a creature on earth.  I don’t understand how one man can be so pretty—pretty face, pretty hair, pretty voice, and just overall pretty.  But I’m definitely thankful.

Oh, what’s a girl to do?

Oh, I am just beside myself with happiness!  I just love all the little pockets of happiness I can find within my day.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, find your own celebrity to stalk.  Omg, the fun you’ll have!

Take-Away Life Lesson:  To make it easier on the person you’re stalking, just already have a marriage license on yourself “just in case.”  It’s more than likely they’ll appreciate the effort you’ve gone through to save them the work of the waiting process and doing it themselves “just in case.”

  1. I proposed Chico Debarge back in 1999 after falling heavily when I heard him singing ‘Any Other Night’ – while watching the movie ‘Set It Off’.

    He never did respond to that written proposal (any of them) and I’m sure his publicist people weren’t passing them on out of jealousy! I was a 21 year old adoring fan who would have learned how to cook and clean his big house and everything!

    I was outraged, and tried stalking for a while, but as you can imagine, living in Australia, the internet being a new thing with limited ‘Chico Debarge’ results and snail mail were all restricting the effectiveness of my ‘Once I get you, I’m never letting you go even if I have to tie you up in my basement & brainwash you.. (I didn’t have a basement)

    Eventually, I recovered from the pain of that experience and discovered Mr Buble… (

    Who then went and got married… and from the women in my post comment claiming he was theirs, obviously he was a CAD…

    And so then I moved onto Shemar Moore… – – Who then was reportedly Gay, at which point I almost had a breakdown and then I discovered Taylor Kinney and have decided he will be the next famous specimen I ask for pre marriage dates…

    I’m just working out my approach… lol – I might hunt him down and have the marriage license handy as you’ve suggested lol

    #Loved This post – thanks for sharing, always good for a giggle and reflection of my own stalkish ways.. lol


    1. LOL! I love it! Girl, you’re rockin’ right along with the stalking. Hilarious reading. Glad to be of some help in the future. 😉

  2. I love your story-and your tips may come in handy some day! Believe me, you’re not alone.

    Husband and I totally stalked Jerry Seinfeld in Rapid City, SD, USA, when he was there for a show in 2000-something. Husband had camped out for tickets the previous month, and was first in line to purchase.

    The morning of the show, with help from a friend working there at the time, we were able to time our arrival at the hotel such that we met Jerry, his agent and another comedian exiting the elevator into the lobby. We then ate breakfast in the booth next to them. We had even baked him a loaf of banana bread with M&Ms in it–to this day referred to as “Jerry bread.” After we ate, we did our best to be tactful as we interrupted their conversation to ask for his autograph. (So dorky.) He was extremely gracious and completely at a loss when we gave him the banana bread.

    We sat in the front row that night: there were six of us wearing long-sleeve black t-shirts, each with a different quote from the series printed in big white letters on the front. I can’t believe what dorks we were, but it was so much fun!

    1. OMG! Now THAT’S how it’s done! That’s how you do the stalking. That’s GREAT! Awesome! I am in LOVE with that show to this day. I crack up every time I watch those episodes. Good going for you!

  3. Lol I LOVE your enthusiasm! This made me smile. Hmmm who shall I stalk? My short list Blu Cantrell (her voice kills me) or Nikka Costa (love her voice too) or Zooey Deschanel (cuz she seems like my kind of nuts) I shall heed your advice oh great one!!! 🙂

    1. Oh, man! You should have been there for the enthusiasm. It’s enough to commit a person! Lol. But I’m glad to help out a fellow stalker. You’ve got a good list going to start with. 🙂
