Fun Monday: the celebrity crush edition

Jo Beaufoix is our hostessa this week for Fun Monday, and she is just brimming with curiousity about things way back in the rusty dusty past.

I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. Did you have pictures on your wall or in your locker? Did you dress like them, style or colour your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)

Photos of them would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better.

Also, I also want to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about.

Hmm. Let us remember that I am OLD OLD OLD.

Well, not so old that my celebrity crush would be Frank Sinatra, or Elvis even.

But.

I liked "The Cute One."

Yes, Paul McCartney -- in his Beatles days -- rocked my world to its core.

I had a Beatles poster on my wall. The "Meet the Beatles" album was on my record player nonstop.

I planned to marry him.

I was typical.

And so pathetic.

I loved him, yeah, yeah, yeah ...

Now go check out the other Fun Monday crushin'!

My crushes began in the late 70's so I didn't have one on the Beatles, but mine was typical too. At least you have nothing to feel humiliated about. I picked one of the worst singers in history!

Memories here of girls fainting near the edgewater inn in Seattle... I'm a tad bit older than you. A kid told me the Beatles were coming to America and I thought it was something like a plague of locust.

JennV said...

Jo Beaufoix said...

Now I feel positively ancient because I'm before the Beatles(just). At the time I wasn't a huge fan, but I agree Paul was kinda cute!

Lil Mouse said...

SwampAngel65 said...

Hahahaha!! I liked Herman's Hermits! But, yeah, the Beatles...I think at one time or another I had little crushes on all of them, eventhough they were much older than me. I liked older men!

I have their first album, the one in your picture. I have it frames and hanging in my living room!

Jenni said...

Paul was definitely the cute one.

Janet said...

I didn't know about the Beatles until later (although my father did have that album, and I still have it). I had David Cassidy all over my room. There, I said it.

nikki said...

Beatles rule. Of course I did have a crush on Elvis, years after he died!

Janet, the one that loved John, no George, no John the best said...

I like how you qualify your answer LOL!

The Beatles were my first crush, too, but it was John, no George, no John for me. I never did like cutesy too much LOL!

Kaytabug said...

There is no embarrassment what-so-ever about swooning over the Beatles. I heart the Beatles. Had I been alive when they came on the scene I would have thought they were drool-licious!!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

You're not that old. I've at least heard of this Paul person you speak so fondly of. ;-)

Karina said...

Yeah, yeah, yeah...never been a beatles fan, but I bet I would have been if I'd been around when they were big.

jennifer said...

Amen sister! Paul is the best. And I STILL think that Sir Paul is gorgeous.

Be blessed.

Jen

Mariposa said...

I love Beatles too and they rock my world, yet I came in a bit later though that planning of marrying any of them was not practical! LOL

The Laundress~JJ! said...

Aside from John Lennon...I lurved....

Sean Cassidy, Rick Springfield, Leif Garrett and Paul Stanley.

mjd said...

Well, I am older than old. But my favorite Beatle is Paul. I close my mind to reports that he was mean to Heather.

Our Happy Happenings said...

A little before my time... but a good looking choice none the less!

BS said...

You aren't old !! The Beatles were awesome.

IamwhoIam said...

Too much? Sorry...
