Crucial Update

Though incredibly famous and hounded by the press all the time, tall musician couple Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift appear to be doing normal couple things as indicated by Instagram. Taylor Swift signing away her life to the perennial 1989 tour notwithstanding, she still has the time to enjoy a nice meal with Calvin Harris.

The couple wore all dark everything to a date night at Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California and T-Swift accessorized with a floral headband. Young fan Ricky Selby was either lucky to be in the right place at the right time, or has fine-tuned stalking skills — which is what fan-girls/boys/people seem to have mastered — as he joined the couple for dinner last night.

Selby had a picture taken of him with Swift and Harris at their table reading a menu. He posted it to Instagram with the caption "Awesome dinner with mom and dad."
