There’s nothing like those tiny heart tremors that only your first crush could give you. Even if it’s not someone you’ve actually ever met, but a celebrity that stole your prepubescent little heart.
In a rush of pure nostalgic revelry, we took to theBERRY’s Instagram and Facebook pages to ask you who made your teenage heart go pitter patter.
Some of the responses we were like “Oh yeah, yep, totally!” while others were a little…different, but no judgement! Check out some of our faves below (in no particular order), and then head over to our social media pages for more!
