Why does it seem like women go apeshit over musicians?

Is it true or is it a generalization?

Even here, I've read a few ladies' posts that made me wonder.

At my first post-military job, I was friends with a couple of the paralegals, and they both were in love with the lead singer and drummer of a local band, and would take vacation time off to follow them when they went on tour. One of them was also obsessed with Pearl Jam and was looking for paralegal jobs in Seattle just so she could live in their hometown. :shuffle:

And then, you look at really busted guys like Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Iggy Pop? :scream: :rofl: but they get too many women. And then you have the cute but not-so-talented guys like Bieber, the Jonas Bros...what gives?

Discuss.

I don't think I've ever had a crush on a musician. Is it just musicians? I'd say it's more people with an extraordinary talent :)

I haven't either. I did have a crush on an actor when I was twelve though. I don't think it is about talent. That doesn't apply to most of those who are getting the screams. I think it is just a way to have a safe crush and to release some emotion. Kind of like acting like three year old kids as they cheer for their favorite football teams.

Is it true or is it a generalization? Probably both. :lol:

I think, in general, women like men who can do something well and are passionate about it. If they're successful at it, even better.


And then, you look at really busted guys like Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Iggy Pop? :scream: :rofl: but they get too many women. Famous, rich and successful. Having said that, personally I would not touch any of them with a ten-foot pole.


And then you have the cute but not-so-talented guys like Bieber, the Jonas Bros...what gives? I thought we were talking about women, not 13-year-old girls who will fancy anyone cute. Then again my version of cute when I was 13 was Andy Taylor from Duran Duran: short, not conventionally handsome, but he played guitar really well. But it was just a teenage crush. I don't think I would ever get involved with a famous musician. A writer yes (and I did), but not a musician. I don't think that lifestyle is good for relationships.

are passionate about it. That. It's not the talent per se, it's being passionate about something...about something women can relate to, i.e. NOT football ;)

I think it has something to do with the whole "artistic, tortured soul" image that a lot project. I'm thinking back to several lifetimes ago when I was a young teenager with a passionate crush on rock and roll icons. It's actually kind of scary to think back to how crazy some people actually got.
:hat1: :hat1: :hat1: :hat1: NOT me, of course...(snicker, snicker...)

And I don't think it's been relegated to the teeny-boppers at all. I know of women my own age (50+) who stand and scream like nuts at the idea of getting close enough to their "one, true love!" THAT'S SCARY!! Then I think of all the things I "might have done" to get close to people like Jim Morrison, Elvis, The Beatles etc...and that sends me :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: :scream: Listen to me, now??!! Tonight is the Michael Buble concert in Chicago and I was willing to pay ridiculous amounts of money for one ticket?? I don't think so..I can listen at home to my cds and not the woman next to me screaming in my ear!

Yes, but I think that this is because many of these musicians are still coming across as boys instead of men. Even at 60 plus years of age most of the rock stars are still portraying the adolescent image and angst. Perhaps it brings back memories of a happier time for some of these crazed women. They either want to go back to adolescence or have never left it. Hey, if it brings them pleasure...:confused:

Music has the power to affect emotions. Men have di%ks. That's really all there is to it. It's seduction without the payoff unless you're Pamela des Barres.

When I worked for a symphony a couple years ago I discovered that classical musicians have groupies, too. And I have to say, the clarinetist and one of the violinists were quite the hotties.

Who posted the "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber" link here :lol:?

But teen girls love these guys, who are basically built like lollipops and have questionable singing talent.

Not sure why but I was crazy about any cute face or sexy voice as a kid. However I grew out of it once I left my teens behind and that was a looooooooooong time ago. LOL

Don't get me wrong. Mooning over some singer as a teenager is one thing but as a very mature adult, is quite another! The very thought of Mick Jagger or Keith Richards at this point in time?? EWWWWWWWW, just EEEEWWWWWWWWW :eek: :rofl: :eek: :confused: :confused: :eek: :eek: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Now, Sir Paul? There's a guy who has aged gracefully!! ;) ;) ;)

And HEY NOW!!! There are some of us out here that REALLY, REALLY LOVE college football! I'm all set for both the SEC and Big 12 Championships today! :encore: :encore: :encore:

I do however remember having quite a crush on Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees! (now, that is scary!!) Different times for different generations. I remember watching a documentary on Frank Sinatra that showed women who were teenagers during his "heyday" and were screaming like lunatics at his sold-out shows!!
:yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

heeee, it's not like Pearl Jam walks down the street in Seattle :lol: Although I did pass Kris Novoselic of Nirvana on Broadway in 1996.

Honestly, does everything that you don't enjoy have to be about other people being clinically immature?

A lot of musicians are good looking, and a lot of the ones who aren't are still sexy (look at videos of Iggy Pop in the '70s - that man was PURE SEX on stage). A lot of performance is about channelling passion, and that connects with a lot of people. Add in the fame and the lifestayle of getting to do what you want and not slog in some crap desk job, and sure, there's a whole fantasy around rock musicians.

There's also the whole power thing. Plenty of busted looking guys have hot wives/girlfriends and women who want to be with them. I'm more :confused: about how Donald Trump attracts young beautiful woman than Keith Richards.
