"At 13 years old, I had a bar mitzvah, and at my bar mitzvah, for the first time in my life, this girl I was in love with came up to me while one of the greatest songs in the world was playing, and she asked me if I would dance with her," he said, according to the magazine. "It was the first time I ever felt acknowledged, and it was the first time I ever felt like, you know, I had a shot at being cool."
