Hello.. can I have your autograph?

LIONEL Richie has revealed he loves to get famous people's autographs.

Despite his own international fame, the Dancing On The Ceiling hitmaker can't resist getting other celebrity signatures.

The 66-year-old said: "I bought a guitar just like BB King's Lucille and I asked him to sign it. He died about four months later.

"I'm a big believer in getting an autograph. I have presidents, major dignitaries.

"When I met Nelson Mandela, the first thing I said to him was, 'You gotta sign something'.

"If I walk in a room and I'm a fan of you, I will act like a fan."

However, Lionel admityed he no longer gets asked for autographs as frequently and always has to be cameraready because fans prefer to get pictures instead.

He added: ''Selfies are now replacing autographs."
