"Ever since the Beatles busted through the charts in the early 1960s—and Beatlemaniacs went into full-on frenzied adoration for the mop-headed ones—there has been a pervasive image of boy-band obsessives as screaming, bawling, howling, and otherwise crazed freaks. But the truth is that the tone of mocking condescension that most “civilians” take toward fans of boy bands is completely missing the point. This kind of fandom, especially during your teen years, can be an important part of a person’s sexual revelation and identity-building—two things that also happen to be among the most complex things about growing up."

    Please Don’t Go Girl: The wisdom of the boy-band superfan.

    SO GOOD—the paragraph before this nails it, as does this piece:

    …boy-band fandom is, at its core, much more about us than it is about the boys. We are the subjects, and they are the objects in our fantasies, many of which involve our imagined relationships with them. (I, for one, spent hours upon hours planning my future dates with Donnie, picturing myself, wind in my hair, riding in the passenger seat of his SUV—the two of us an early-’90s Bonnie and Clyde.) From a fan’s-length distance, these safely unattainable fantasies can start to teach us about what kind of person we might like to date, and sometimes even how we’d like that person to treat us.

    Last year, when One Direction released “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks),” a combination Blondie/Undertones cover they recorded for charity, the Guardian’s Adam Boult was prompted to start a list of songs that “must never be covered.” Never mind that 1D’s medley got a seal of approval from Blondie’s Debbie Harry herself; Mr. Boult said it was an “abomination” that somehow “tarnished” the original versions. So it’s not about the gender of the artist doing the cover—it’s about the gender (and age) of their fans. Think about it: Young, poppy acts, have largely young, female fan bases. I believe the reason rockist dudes feel so dang uncomfortable watching these artists cover songs by bands they love is that it points out that they might have something in common with fans of Miley, Lorde, 1D, etc. They might actually have something in common with teenage girls. And what could be worse than that?

    Here’s what I want to tell these people: You could do a lot worse than sharing a teenage girl’s taste in music. The pantheon of acts who couldn’t have gotten famous without the support of teenage girls includes a lot of people and bands you probably respect a lot: Michael Jackson. Elvis Presley. The fricking BEATLES. When Nirvana were around, most of their fans weren’t 50-year-old rock critics; they were kids.
