Listen up, Taylor Swift ... Miguel's about to tell you, you're his hero -- but not in a cheesy Bette Midler kinda way.
This is quick, but so freakin' telling -- all it took were 2 magic words for Miguel to start grinning outside Bootsy Bellows Tuesday night.
Miguel can't hide his glee over Taylor's rant at Apple for its streaming music debacle. Apple wasn't going to pay artists for tunes played during a free trial period for its service -- until Taylor went off.
Just a hunch, but ... Miguel's not the only singer who wants to XOXO Swiftee ... for lining their pockets.
