Being a teen idol is exhilarating. You're on top of the world, maybe on the cover of Teen Beat or Tiger Beatselling lots of albums, or in hit movies. But teen idoldom has plenty of drawbacks: being young, these stars are often unable to comprehend the consequences of any missteps — and their mistakes play out on the world stage.
To many avid rock historians, the teen idols -- who were firmly entrenched on the top of the charts between the death of Buddy Holly and the rise of the Beatles -- represent the greatest threat to rock's survival that the music ever weathered. In retrospect, that seems fairly unlikely, though there's no doubt that the more conservative elements of the entertainment industry and the status quo as a whole felt more comfortable with these performers. As far as rock was concerned, the original teen idol was Pat Boone, whose first hits were bowdlerized versions of classic rockers by Little Richard and Fats Domino.
A teen idol is a celebrity with a large teenage fan-base. Teen idols are generally young but not always necessarily teenaged. Some teen idols began their careers as child actorslike Lindsay Lohan.
