Apple Podcasts badge linking to the episode.

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards aired on May 20th. If you tuned in, you saw that Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie (Panic! At The Disco) opened the show with a colorful, fun, yet controversial debut performance of her new single “Me!” .

Did you also notice that I was sitting in the second row behind Taylor Swift the entire night? I understand if you didn’t, but I was there!

I’ve loved Taylor Swift since the release of Taylor Swift in 2006. I mean, we’ve practically grown up together. So it came as a pleasant surprise when she sat right in front of me the entire night of the Billboard Music Awards, and despite the bad case of RBF I have in the photo, I was glowing on the inside. I got to see what she was really like in person. Spoiler alert: she was everything you would hope and more.

In this episode, we touch on:

  • My experience at the Billboard Music Awards
  • A special interaction that Taylor had with a fan
  • Why we love Taylor Swift
  • Her new album (#TS7 anyone?)
  • “Guilty Pleasures” and why the term “guilty” should be banished forever
