Taylor Swift’s song “You Belong to Me” is my guilty pleasure of the week. This song is targeted to a much younger audience than myself and I don’t relate to its romanticized high school content. However, I always feel the need to sing it like I’ve just learned to drive and my braces have come off, among other teenage accomplishments.
I’ve been told not to meet my heroes. “Your heroes will disappoint you,” they say. “They won’t be heroic. They’ll be divas. They’ll be dull. Don’t do it, save that pristine image of how cool they are in your head!” Still, like a lot of good advice I’ve been given in my life – such as, “Don’t major in English,” and “Logan, get down from there!” – I chose to ignore it.
And, thank God, Travis Stever and Zach Cooper of Coheed and Cambria were some of the nicest, most gracious, and humblest dudes I’ve ever met.
