My First Celebrity Crush


When I was in the fourth grade, I told my mom I wanted rock music for Christmas. She bought me my first two cassette tapes that year. The first was Permanent Vacation by Aerosmith. The second was Look What The Cat Dragged In by Poison. My first crush on a celebrity developed soon after.

Yes, my first celebrity crush was Bret Michaels. Laugh all you want. I'm not ashamed. I loved the voice. I loved the hair. I loved the leather pants. I loved the tattoos.











I'm guessing my grade school crush on Bret Michaels could have
something to do with the love I have for Kid Rock today.

Do you remember your first celebrity crush?

Oh wow, back in the day he was awesome. Now with all that Rock of Love crap, not so much. (even though I secretly watched the first & second season...shhhh!)

My first celebrity crush was JTT (Johnathan Taylor Thomas). How embarrassing. He wasn't even as cool as a rock singer. Don't hold it against me. lol!

you totally should have been on Rock of Love ;)

I think mine was Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block. I also had a serious thing for Steven Tyler.

Rock of Love was the best show ever.

I think mine was a New Kids on the Block kid. Joey.

Martinis or Diaper Genies? said...

the pouty lips are TOO MUCH!

MiMi said...

Oh no. This brings up some latent issues for me. See, I thought he was CUTE too. And I now realize he was very pretty. I always like the pretty guys. I especially like the dudes who wear guyliner. What is wrong with me??

Just found your site via a comment you posted on SITS and I HAD to follow!

Ralph Macchio...my first celeb crush. Also Michael J. Fox.

Your blog is awesome.

I have to join in on some of these ladies and say that Joey from New Kids On The Block was the first major one I can remember. My friends all had crushes on the other members so we acted like we were their girlfriends. Too funny!

After that it was Johnny Depp. I saw Benny and Joon and fell hard! He is still a major hottie!

Happy SITS!

JTT!

He used to be SO MUCH BETTER LOOKING then he is now!!! I don't blame you for this crush one bit.

I think my first big celebrity crush was one Axl Rose. :)

Annnnd I just wanted to give you a heads up...
I took your button because you are fabulous, but in the code that you copy/paste, you want to remove the forward slash after the .jpg near the end. :) (It wasn't showing up all pretty in my sidebar until I took that out.)

I just want to make sure your button can work EVERYWHERE!

I think it was someone equally horrific, like Shaun Cassidy or some such sickness.

Karen said...

Kirk Cameron.

I even wrote him a fan letter. He never wrote back.

I moved on to Joey McIntyre.

One upon a time.. We was such a doll! What the heck happened to him?? Oh yeah, helllooo Mr. Surgeon!

Julie said...

Jonathan Taylor Thomas....wtf happened to him??

Heather @ Sellers Gang Mama said...

Did you know that he is Miley Cyrus' celebrity crush? My little sister told me that the other day and it just cracked me up. What does she have in common with Bret Michaels?

The Meanest Bean of Them All said...

Nice!!! I would never laugh at that :) My first celebrity crush was JTT, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, from Home Improvement (the TV show) (yes I'm dating myself, whether positive or negative, but there you have it). He was hot! I wonder if he still is...hmm... I gotta say, not so much my thing anymore:

Brian Bloom (I think was his name) a kid on As the World Turns (yes my lovely mother let me watch it with her at the dear old age of 12)!

lemonologie said...

I have completely blocked mine out. Those were not good days for me :-D

Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day the other week. Sorry my return visit has taken so long!

Off to read more!

Did you mean to submit this to PostSecret? *wink*

Brett is not a bad crush at all. I have to say my first notable crushes were The Fonz, Bo Duke, and last but not least Burt Reynolds as The Bandit. I must have had something for bad boys n' cowboys. It's so funny to think of that. (Fast forward I eventually ended up crushing majorly on Corey Haim and all the New Kids on the Block) It's so funny to think about that now.

Julie said...

Shaun Cassidy...oh my I'm old!
There is something about Brett. I wanna look away and say "eww", but I just can't quite do it.

Lisa - The Heller Family said...

Scott Baio and then right on to Matt Dillon. Dreamy! LOL

James Hetfield....and still is.
