THANKS to RACHEL RESNICK for making LIBBY CUDMORE’s NO VALENTINES FOR GENERATION TWILIGHT Post #1 on TweetMeme: scroll down further for Libby’s ‘valentine’ to GenT and read Libby’s sweet-tart quote here on Gen. T. It Boyz…
‘IT BOYS’ of 2010… by Elizabeth Searle
Who are the It Boys of Spring? I polled a few of my favorite members of what blog fave. Libby Cudmore dubbed ‘Generation Twilight.’ For pre-teens, no one tops the boy/man of the hour, Justin Bieber. A true New Media star who rose to cult status via videos his mom posted on YouTube, Bieber owns the 2010 Tweens.
Younger fans– & older ones like me– found our hearts beating faster when watching (twice, for me) STAR TREK, the movie. Each time I saw it with my son & his friends, we all loved it; Mom especially loved Young Kirk and extra-especially Young Spock, aka It Boys Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.
Fellow blogger Libby Cudmore had mixed feelings about today’s Boy stars:
I think most of the It Boys Shia Labeof and Zac Efron in particular) are too femmy, too coiffed and they dress like Deuce Bigalow. I never, ever trust a man who wears a fedora with jeans. I don’t want their “edginess” or their masculinity to be a calculated thing . . it has to just be, and I don’t think men like that really exist much anymore. Basically, I don’t want a guy who is going to borrow my skinny jeans. Next
thing you know, he’s borrowing your eyeliner.
Thanks to Libby for your trademark sweet-tart view! Libby nails Generation Twilight, as always– though there do appear to be plenty of girls out there who wouldn’t mind lending Shia or Zac their eyeliner. Meanwhile, OK Magazine included several young stars in their Hottest Hunks, notably the dapper Taylor Lautner. And of course OK ‘OK’s Gen. Twilight’s fave: creepy but sexy-in-tormented-way Robert Pattinson.
Which hot hunks of GenT. talent– with or without eyeliner, whatever floats your boat– do you see as possessing star quality, aka ‘It’? & thanks again to LIBBY for her own brand of IT…
