I Am Old

I must be. There is less every day that I understand. There is less I care to even pretend I understand.

Case in point: Justin Bieber. Really. I will admit to barely understanding my friends going crazy over David Cassidy and Donny Osmond back in the day. I really, really didn't get the Osmond thing. Guess I've never been a fan of wholesome. Anyway. This Bieber kid. Take a boo at this pic.

Oh, dear. If you can make a buck being a screaming teen sensation, more power to you. If you can manage to do it and stay out of jail (yeah, I'm looking at you, Lindsay), even more power to you.

But please. Can we have children refrain from grabbing their baby genitals on stage? Please? First it's Miley Cyrus prancing around in her underwear every place I look, and now this wholesome little Canadian boy, with his tiny little chipmunk voice, going for gold. Are mothers everywhere - especially his own - not cringing?

Sing. Sing like the wind. Dance. Make money. Go back to school so you don't get ripped off by your 'managers'. But when your average fan is about 12, I'm gonna suggest you an leave the sexy sexy for another time.

Couldn't agree with you more (but then again, I am your sister). Why, why, why do they feel the need to try sooo hard?

His latest tweet after a rumour got out that he has a girlfriend - "I'm single and ready to mingle" Who even says that shit anymore? (his manager, maybe?) puke.

I used to faithfully buy People magazine, until I realized I had no idea who the people were they were writing about. That's when I knew I was officially old.

My daughter is 10 and I don't know how she even knows who he is but she does, and she doesn't like him at all. I am so glad I'm not going to have to endure being asked to try and go to a concert!

BTW...I couldn't stand Donny Osmond but David Cassidy...well I had a life size poster and the lyrics to his sappy songs are still taking up far too much space in my brain!

I had a life sized poster of David Bowie. (in pink knit hot pants and red spiky hair)

And if I recall, a pair of silver balls very noticeable in those shorts from the up-camera angle.

I was scarred.

Did you not notice he was also clutching his heart (... or it would be if he was from Planet Inverted)? This suggests that he was probably singing a tear-jerker song about soccer (or football) and was right at the part where the player is trying to block a free kick. He is willing to take one in the hoo-haas for the love of his country and the queen.

Love and hoo-haas make for wonderful songs.

David & Donny were what all my friends were drooling over but I went outside that and spent all my time listening to the Jackson 5!
For whitebread Burlington it was a stretch but I didn't care....you could dance to their music...and their cartoon was way better than the Osmonds!
(OMG...I am so old)

Fozzie Roz et al... Will not be participating in this one -- OK, so technically I just have (thank you Mr. Felon) The whole teen idol thing made me sick when I was growing up, now, the popular media has made it even worse. These days, it all seems to barely skate around the notion of pedophelia -- real or imagined.

Lief Garrett was the big thing when I was in junior high. Have you seen how he turned out lately? Duran Duran was big news in high school. They're still around playing well actually. If you're in this biz for the music, you'll still be in it after the insanity, fame, IRS and corrupt managers have trod on you.If you were in it for girls, boys, toys, the asphalt tastes bad when the road hits your face. I don't know where Justin's head is at, ( really don't tell me, I'm happier) but if he survives and is still singing it was about music and is just being manipulated now. If he'd only stop manipulating himself!
