A personal blog of this 76 year old gay man (ninth generation American) who retired to Delaware from Pennsylvania eleven years ago with his longtime partner/husband of 53 years.
LOLHe's a Canadian singer.
I always thought his name was Beaver and was confused when I saw his name in writing about two months ago.Who is he? He's the latest 12-year-old sensation all the little girls are throwing their money at. Supposedly he sings, although I've never heard any of his music. Next year there will be a new 12-year-old for the girls to worship. They come, they go.
Justin Bieber was a kid that had video's on Youtube; they were of him singing, he got so many hits and watchers that he became famous overnight. Now he draws thousands of people where-ever he goes..
You'll have to research who and what he is yourself, but I can say one thing about the annoying hairdo. Some have dismissed it (the hairdo) as "leftover Ashton Kutcher", but in fact, it's Joey Heatherton straight from the Sixties. Some career manager type needs to tell this child to ditch the hair as soon as possible, and keep saying to himself over and over and over again, "David Cassidy, Lief Garrett, Donny Osmond". It always ends badly.
Where have you been Ron?!? You need to go to the mall more & see thru the eyes of the young teenage girls. He's the hottest thing around according to them. How do I know you ask. I have a soon to be 14 year old granddaughter...lol.No seriously, he is all over the TV too, especially the entertainment shows. If you want to be entertained & updated on all there is know about anyone I'll lend you my granddaughter for a week-end. I promise you, you will never be the same afterwards. In a good way that is.Hope all is well with you & I'm celebrating that we didn't get that monsterous snowstorm the experts predicted.Fran
He is the latest teen singing heartthrob in the USA. Ho-Hum....
I know Hanuman. This was my feeble attempt at sarcasm. I know that I am old now but I just don't get all the fever over Justin. It is beyond my comprehension.
I know who Justin is D. Dave. I don't know why, for helmut hairdos annoy me to no end. Pop teen idols also annoy me. I know I shouldn't feel that way but they really bother me. I wish I knew why.
I know who is is Fran. I was just being cute with my blog posting. I'm sure he's a fine young man and I wish him all the success in the world. I really do (I think.) I'm also happy for all the pre-teen and teenage girls who are whacky over him. I think it wonderful to have someone you can idolize. My post was more about mocking myself and my old faddy duddy attitude towards the new hot young sensations. But seriously, I really don't see what the fuss is all about. You can see kids like Justin in any high school or mall. What makes him so special? That stupid helmut hairdo? I don't get it.
Thanks Tim. I know who Justin Bieber is and how he came to fame. I was just trying to be cute with my blog posting. I was actually mocking myself for being an old fuddy duddy who doesn't get the current fads. I certainly do not get the appeal of this helmut headed kid. There's nothing there that I can see. But I'm happy for all the teeny boppers. They got something and that's good. Childhood should be fun.
Just so you know, my kids can't stand him and they are in the age group they he attracts.Also, what perv gave him all those lipstick kisses? m.
Ron,Nothing new here. One every year or so. Just think Fabian.Lar
Cubby,I thought his name was "Beaver" too. I thought "what an awkward name for a teeny bopper idol." I kept hearing "Beaver Fever" and I knew that didn't apply to my tastes. Just saying.
Tai,Yes, I know. His rise to fame came from his You tube video. No accounting for tastes. That hair annoys me to no end.
Lar,I like that! "Nothing to see here folks. Move on." Big WHOOP. :)Ron
Where I work out someone has pasted his little happy creepy face onto the photos of the weight lifters.Yucko.
Spo,"Happy, creepy face" is a very apt description of this helmut headed twink. Eeewwww.
