Teen Crushes

Happy Friday, all!

So I don't know if I mentioned this but times are a changing in the old Shirk household.

My little kiddo now has a celebrity crush.
How in the world did this happen? She was just playing with her Webkinz the other day!

Literally. Just the other day.

Anyhew, the new crush is...Niall Horan from the band One Direction.


At least he has a good head of hair. (Actually they all seem to)

So last night as I was tucking her into bed, she asked me who I liked when I was her age.

For me it was Rick Springfield all the way!

Oh, those little skinny ties he wore!

I started watching General Hospital because of him!
PS. I heard he's back on the show NOW. Along with Frisco!

Of course, when I showed her the picture of him (the picture of him from the 80's), she just shook her head.

Hmph. Excuse me. At least Rick had better music. LOL

Who was your celebrity music crush?
Have you heard of One Direction? What do you think of them?

******Oh, and as a side note, I'm over at Burning Impossibly Bright today.
I'm giving my Top Ten List of Comfy Hero names.
Come on over and tell me yours!

Have a great weekend!

One direction, oh my gosh I see their stuff everywhere. They even have press on nails with their faces.

Loved Rick Springfield, but my teen music crush was Roger Taylor from Duran Duran, what a hot band they were and awesome music, too. :)

I'm obviously going to show my first celebrity crush was Shaun Cassidy. gulp. (And he doesn't even have great music--anyone else remember "Da doo ron, ron." double gulp.

Jennifer Shirk said...

YES!! I remember him. He was a cutie. Actually, both Hardy Boys were.

Jessica R. Patch said...

I had an iron-on Rick T-shirt! LOL

My daughter just went through the One Direction crushes. I admit to getting thoroughly sick of their music. And I remember when it was Beiber and I took her to the concert. It was actually pretty good. :)

David Cassidy for me. (Guess that shows my age. LOL!)

We have common ground here, Jennifer. I am no stranger to the 'my kid loves One Direction' phenomenon. BTW I also had a little bit of a think for Rick Springfield.

Niall?! But Harry from One Direction is sooo much cuter! Oh well.

When I was young, I had a thing for Leonard DiCaprio back before Titanic came out, when he was on Growing Pains. Fred Savage from The Wonder Years had a piece of my heart too.

My sister had a Dirty Dancing poster of Patrick Swayze on her wall, so I felt obligated to crush on him as well!

I had to really think about that. I'll have to go with the lead singer from Def Leppard, Joe Elliot. I know - I had odd tastes! When I was in my 20's it was Richard Marx. I've seen recent pictures and he's still cute!

Old Kitty said...

One who!??! LOL!!

My crush was Spandau Ballet!!

:-) Take care

Cheryl Klarich said...

Donnie Osmond had me with his "Sweet and Innocent" single...

Did you enjoy 13 going on 30 with Jennifer Garner? Cute!

Bless you (and your daughter)!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I dunno. If I had any music crushes, it would probably be Elvis... or Belafonte... or Maurice Chevalier. (I was a weird kid.)

Carol Kilgore said...

I do know One Direction! I think I crushed on someone new every week.

MJFredrick said...

Shaun Cassidy for me, too. And my students LOVE One Direction! 3 of my talent show groups are doing One Direction songs.

I had plenty of teen crushes, but funny, I don't remember them being in bands. My daughter introduced me to One Direction...although she admits she's a bit old for them. She also introduced me to Il Volo, the young, amazing, Italian opera singers...and if I didn't know better, I'd think I was experiencing a new teenage crush.

I've never even heard of One Direction! I think I'm going to go for David Bowie for my teenage crush. I loved David Bowie!
