Did you care about any movie stars/boyband/singers when you were a teen?
How about your kids?
I was totally into NKOTB as a 13 year old, posters all over my walls, went to their concert, knew all their songs.
My kids totally are totally not like that (so far). I've yet to have one that's even remotely close to anything that resembled my obsession. My oldest has a thing for pro cowboys, but other than "liking" them on facebook that's about as far as it goes.
I still love Duran Duran. Loved John Taylor the bassist most of all. So much so I married a bassist. #1 wasn't into pop anything at all until #2 came along and turned 13 and got all into one direction. Then it was all Grammys, pop channel in the car. Now I am even cooler because I like Ed sheeran, fun, and the imagineers. I find the current stuff I like reminds me of 80's stuff I loved.
that said, i was donny osmond and the osmond brothers 1000%. i got a babysitting job at age about 16 to take a couple youngsters to their concert and it was all over after that. i was nuts!!! i would so love to go to vegas and see donny and marie's show there. my husband promised but you know how that goes....

I wasn't really into any of that stuff. My best friend loved all the boy bands of the time. We were a little young for NKOTB, but she loved Backstreet, Nsync, 98 degrees all of them. I went to two nysnc concerts as a result
Jayde asked for one direction stuff for her birthday so I got it for her. I'm not sure if she really likes them, or she likes them because she wants to fit in.
I'm sure I was, but nothing lasting with just one or two bands. I think I was the typical teen..into something new every few months. As far as music goes I was more into like Gavin Rossdale from Bush than Backstreet Boys or anything.
My kids aren't old enough. Although some of Beth's eight year old friends DO seem interested in such things...thankfully she is still into animals and cutsie things.
