Song for the day: Haunting by Halsey
Because (one of the many) stories I’m currently writing is set to this and it got in my head as a result.
Today’s challenge is to talk about my first celebrity crush. Get ready guys…
These guys were the “band members I fancied” back in the 90s! Ben from A1, Shane from Westlife, and Lee from Steps. I remember getting a copy of Smash Hits magazine when I was about 7 that had Westlife on the cover and just staring at Shane (cringe and etc).
However, I never truly understood what a crush was until I was 10 and encountered a little film called Pirates of the Caribbean and saw this face:
I fell. And I fell hard. I was a girl obsessed with the beauty and wonder that is Orlando Bloom’s face. I remember being off school sick and just replaying the DVD to see him. I remember feeling weirdly protective of him when he’s duelling Jack and grinning like a loon on loon tablets (RIP Louise Rennison) whenever he smiled.
He could still get it tbh.
Who was your first celebrity crush?
Hope you’re all ok out there!
