Justin Bieber makes Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner look like a pair of whiskey-shooting, tobacco-chewing lumberjacks who spend their free time scouring NASCAR payperview nights in sports bars on the prowl for bitches and hos.

Is Biebs really nelly, though? He's kidlike and kind of androgynous because his puberty has been so slow to kick in, but he doesn't strike me as effeminate in the way that Miss Taylor Lautner most profoundly is.

That Jimmy Osmond video is brilliant. Did he ever put out an album of mammy songs?

Bieber's popularity mystifies me. I was SHOCKED when I found out his real age. I assumed he was 12.

by Anonymousreply 807/16/2011

Justin Bieber doesn't look like a man. He doesn't even look like a boy. He looks like a very young lesbian. I don't think he has any testosterone, nor has he gone through puberty (and he's almost 18). Something is very weird there.

Zac is slightly more masculine than Taylor Lautner, who is GLARINGLY gay.

But then you have Robert Pattinson, who is so giggly and fey in all of his interviews.

But the irony is that Bieber is not gay. He actually strikes me as probably growing into a real pussy hound. %0D %0D Zac Efron don't like pussy. That is apparent when you first look at him. Zac is pretty, plastic and a closet case.

by Anonymousreply 2107/16/2011

Taylor Lautner owns this thread. He is very aware of his image, and how his effeminate nature hurts this image. Catch some clips of him when he has "let his guard down," so to speak... VERY nelly. His PR team is very good about keeping him out of non-acting situations such as interview and charity events for this reason.%0D %0D Justin Bieber is sort of an outlier, and certainly a unique case. His popularity, like someone else said, mystifies me since he became a teen heatthrob without even beginning puberty until at least age 17. When I was a teen (two decades ago), there was value placed on the attractiveness of somoeone who was clearly becoming a man, unlike Bieber, who was at the height of his popularity at age 16 without even beginning puberty. Puberty that delayed is unusual, but not unheard of. Bieber's PR people are aware that his extraordinarily delayed puberty is becoming noticeable, and they are careful not to place him in a sitaution where it would be obvious - ie. when he played in a televised charity basketball game recently, he played with a sleeved t-shirt under his sleeveless jersey to avoid making obvious his lack of pubic hair. Bieber, however, is now undergoing puberty and is, although VERY short, not at all nelly. He will be particularly young-looking and handsome when he's in his 30's.%0D %0D Zac Efron, by the way, is also not nelly.

Really? I think his 'relationship' with Selena Gomez is incredibly awkward and fake.

Robert Pattinson not only looks like somebody who doesn't like pussy, he has actually stated he HATES it. He's also showmancing a lesbian...

LMAO.. really!?!? I beg to differ. How do you explain the fugly Darren Kriss coming up on top if fangirls didn't vote? They were actually allowed to vote in their hot men. And btw.. yeah, I don't think Darren Kriss is hot at all, and he doesn't deserve to be on the list, I can name 100 guys who are hotter than him. That said, I can kinda see how people would find him attractive, or good looking (NOT hot or sexy), so it does make sense he's on the list. I know I'm in the minority to find him ugly. But and this is the major thing.. do you think he deserves to be #1?!?! Is he hotter than that werewolf guy from True Blood (sorry, can't remember his name), or hotter than Ryan Gosling? Uhm.. NO. I can't wait for all this Glee shit to be over, and for the girls to finally realize how fug Darren Kriss is. It's like they're in a haze right now, blinded by their stupidity.

by Anonymousreply 2807/16/2011

Oh c'mon r23, Robert's comment was tongue-in cheek. I'm not saying that he's straight, but the statement was about being overwhelmed during a photoshoot that he was glad when that particular photoshoot was done. I think some define nellyness a bit different than others. There are some who claim that someone is nellier when he tries to hide his femme side while acting all butch and let his nelly side shine through accidently when he gets caught off guard while others think someone who's femme 24/7 is the nelliest. Personally I believe in the latter of the two definitions I mentioned.

While I think Efron is beautiful, I didn't think he was nelly at all in Charlie St. Cloud (horrible movie) or Me and Orson Welles (good movie). When high school musical was shot, he was 17-18. As he's gotten older, he has developed more manly mannerisms. Whether it's due to hard work or natural changes, who knows.

r47, that was Lucas Grabeel. But that was just the character he played. Wasn't really teen idol status, either. Teen yes, idol no.

Speaking of HSM, Disney does seem to have a constant stable of super nelly teen boys. Wouldn't quite call any of them idols, but you've got Cole Sprouse, Sterling Knight & Kenton Duty as just a few recent examples. Nelly, nelly, nelly & gay, gay, gay. Does Disney do some type of market research which indicates that little girls will quickly fall in love with nelly, gay actors & therefore watch their shows?

Aaron Carter owns this thread. Although he was trying to rock the whole kiddy hip-hop thing, it struck me that he mostly looked & sounded like he'd rather be playing with Barbies.

Colfer is not a teen idol in its original sense were teen girls get their pussies wet for him. He's popular, yes, but so not someone teen girls have sex dreams about, because they already know he is gay (because he plays one and came out as gay).

Teen girls still need that little bit of ignorance of not knowing for sure that their idol is indeed gay to see him as a true teen idol they can have sex dreams about.

IMHO Michael Jackson owns this thread; even before he started dressing like Norma Desmond he spoke, walked, and dressed in a very feminine fashion.

Liberace would OWN this thread, if he'd ever appealed to teens. But he appealed to their mothers.

I still think Bieber is several years younger than he claims. He looks like a normal boy of 14, and behaves like a little babydouche.

Bobby Vee was not nelly or especially feminine, but he was very cute, with his hair and his eyes and lips. My girlfriend at the time watched him on American Bandstand and said she thought he was the sexiest boy she had ever seen. Neil Sedaka, on the other hand, screamed nelly to me every time he opened his mouth--never mind that he was married with kids. (Sorry about Bobby Vee's dementia! I didn't know!)

Zac and Taylor are actors. They do not go around bragging they bareback in the sack, perform effeminate gyrations with there hands and ass just saying hello, etc. For those reasons alone they shouldn't be lumped into the gay concentration column. These two might be homosexual, but that's a different category all together.

There are gay straight people, gay homosexuals and the two are indistinguishable when not engaged in sex. There are straight straights and straight homo's, again the two being indistinguishable outside the bedroom. So OP's question needs to be more clearly defined in order to provide a reasonable answer.

Some Johnny Weir type would likely be the faggiest/nelliest teen idol, but I don't know what his name or claim to fame might be.
