(MSNBC)   Why do "Beliebers" get so worked up they cry and faint? Better yet, why the hell do Justin Bieber fans call themselves "Beliebers"?   (bodyodd.msnbc.msn.com) divider line 67

They act that way because they know deep down inside that he's gay and they will never have him deep down inside...

I liked this better when it was called Beatlemania.

Also, why are they nuts? They're teenaged girls. That's all the reason you need.

This is Fark. It's our job to deeply care about disposable pop culture.

When the last boy band toured around here and the same nonsense was shown on TV but it looked scripted. There were two areas for the girls and all the good looking ones were up front and they all started screaming at the same time and the others just followed the lead. All the chubby girls and girls who couldn't dress seemed to be in the back of the crowd.

The boy band was shown having a beer while on a yacht. I wonder why some religious group hasn't been using that footage saying they aren't 21 yet.

I thought it had to do with the German verb "belieben", meaning liver-lover.

That meme is one of the few memes that actually kinda creep me out. Some of the pictures are kind of funny in a skin crawl kind of way though.

Having seen some of these girls screaming and crying, I can only conclude that they're actually terrified of Justin Bieber.

I now want to see a sparkly Bieber poster with the word, "You Will BELIEB!" emblazoned across it. I am not sure, but the idea of it just tickles me. Actually, the idea of Farkers falling down in a frothing frenzy at the sight of it gives me a case of the lulz.

Exactly. If you fancy a 25 year old who looks and acts 12, you're sex-o-meter isn't screwed on right.

I'm not saying I want to have sex with him (and I'm not saying I don't), but he'd better take advantage of the time he has. I have a feeling his looks and career will be dried up within the next few years.

Quality of life would improve a lot more if assembly line pop crap would disappear.
I'm sure all the Beliebers appreciate your understanding, though

Also, why are they nuts? They're teenaged girls. That's all the reason you need.

Which argues that Bieber is the same thing as the Beatles and equally skillful.


No, it argues that the object of the fixation is largely irrelevant. I'm old enough to remember girls rioting to get close to the Bay City Rollers, who also were no Beatles. In fact, they were barely even the Osmonds.

And the whole modern succession of Boy Bands is predicated on the presumption, accurate as it turns out, that you can manufacture an object for tween/teen hysterical attention out of whole cloth and autotune. There's even a standard lineup (akin to the standard formula for constructing a superhero team): the Sweet one, the Moody, Slightly Dangerous one, the Cutest one, the Funny one, etc.

He has a manager/minder that most people presume he has, ahem, been intimate with.

Also, young teenaged girls like to have fantasy relationships.

They like having some boy who they can have a crush on and dream about and have pictures of and so on, who there is no possibility of them ever really getting close to. There are plenty of actual boys they could have as a boyfriend, but that would be messy, scary, and difficult in various ways. These boy band crushes allow them to experiment with many of the feelings of being in love, in a completely safe way. It is the unobtainability of Justin Bieber that makes him appealing to a 13 year old girl.

You don't see teenaged boys doing the same thing, because the psychology is totally different. Teenaged boys do not want fantasy relationships.

This! and before the Beatles, it was Elvis, and before Elvis, my mom told me it was Frank Sinatra (Bobby Soxers and OOOOOhhhh Frankie!), and before that it was the young Bing Crosby, the dreamy crooner.

This is nothing new.
