John M. is our brave buddy battling Spinal Muscular Atrophy and he’s been in a wheelchair for as long as he can remember. What’s so admirable about him is that he takes YOLO to the next level. He also happens to be crazy in love with Taylor Swift. And his dream of meeting Tay Tay recently turned into a reality!
Over the summer John kicked it with Lana Del Rey (so jelly) but meeting Taylor was pretty monumental as he’s a legit Swifty. And now that she’s single?! John is also 20 years old to Taylor’s 22 and she’s been digging younger guys of late so….
It all went down on Tuesday in New York City. Taylor was at the Ed Sullivan to perform for “The Late Show with David Letterman.” As John explains it, there were two barricades set up outside where she was going to walk through, one side was for the paparazzi and the other for Swifties! Guess where John was placed? Stars were totally aligned as he was placed right in the middle by her SUV!
As John patiently waited, he saw a ray of sunshine beam through as the backdoor opened. OK, maybe not. But he did see Tay strutting outta there, her wavy golden locks bouncing in the wind and her signature red lippie on. She posed for the paps, and headed to her awaiting SUV….AND THEN the eye contact happened. Taylor caught John’s eyes and proceeded to ask her driver for a Sharpie to sign John’s Rolling Stone magazine and album copy! Then it gets better: Tay grabbed John’s camera and took this precious photo of the two of them!

So, John who is next on your list? Ohhhh and congrats to Taylor’s good news of the week – her fourth studio album, Red, came out on Monday and is expected to sell over a whopping one million copies in the first week!
And people can make fun of Tay all they want. Yeah, she STILL looks shocked when she wins an award and OK, her songs are ’bout her personal life but they’re still pretty damn good. And as John said, “She was so sweet. She looked so beautiful. I think my heart exploded.” Our hearts totally exploded with his, thanks to Swifty’s random act of kindness.
