"When George Michael passed away, I was like 'Now we'll NEVER get married!' Nevermind my 20+ marriage to my wonderful HB or our 4 kids, or even the fact that he was gay -- it would JUST. NEVER. HAPPEN."

 What is a crush story? It's like when you wrote "Donny Osmond" on your album cover and told your friends it was autographed. Or how you taped tracing paper to the cover of 'Working Class Dog' so you could sketch a perfect Rick Springfield. Or how your grandma was super judgey about Andy Gibb's chest hair. Or how your mom drew arrows to the 4 and the 12 on your watch so you'd know when to come in for The Monkees.
