The problem with knowing about someone/something BEFORE they get famous is that it’s completely bittersweet.
You want to be happy for them, that their dreams are all coming true and they can probably live off of their art now.
(If it’s a thing, you feel kind of validated and awesome because you were obviously right about how great this thing was before anyone else knew).
But it’s also like giving up a secret. It won’t be just yours anymore.
And this applies to a ridiculous amount of situations.
