At the 2022 American Music Awards last month, a video went viral of Allen talking to Lionel Richie and Smokey Robinson on the red carpet. Allen also got a picture with Taylor Swift. He said the two were sitting next to each other and having a conversation when the Getty Images photographers asked them to look their way to take a picture. He said he wasn’t going to ask her for one, so he’s happy that Getty Images captured it.
These days, Allen is meeting so many iconic celebrities that he doesn't get starstruck that much anymore. He did admit that he was starstruck meeting Will Smith, Stevie Wonder, Rob Thomas and Darius Rucker. He also got starstruck meeting Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, since he used to be the Philadelphia Eagles coach and Allen is an Eagles fan.
