I am a recovering ex-hipster and as a result I still listen to indie rock and don't really know much about popular music. Last week, I was with my 4 year old at his junior bowling league and they had some sort of black light "Moonrock Bowling" where they played popular music on a video screen while having this bowling light show. One of the songs they played was by Justin Bieber, who appears to be perpetually 12 years old and sings like a chipmunk (and never mind the fact that the music totally BLOWS.)

Could someone please explain why tween girls are so ga ga for this turd? It absolutely boggles the mind.

Well someone did find a way to turn Justin Bieber's music into something worth listening to

Well it's bumper bowing, so it's hard to get a gutter ball, but he usually scores between 70-100 when he plays. He's better at Wii Bowling, where he usually scores around 150, even without bumpers.

Now if I could just teach him Agricola...

Most tween girls don't care about the music. Its all entertainment, image and marketing.

Because he looks like a hipster lesbian and these girls can have fantasies about him and still feel chaste.

Yes, I too wonder why people who aren't the same and and gender as myself can find something fascinating that I personally have no interest in. It is a great mystery.

Say what you will about his, Corey Feldman had a pretty sweet run of great movies:
# Time After Time (1979)
# The Fox and the Hound (1981) (voice)
# Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
# Gremlins (1984)
# Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)
# The Goonies (1985)
# Stand by Me (1986)
# The Lost Boys (1987)
# License to Drive (1988)
# The 'Burbs (1989)

(the Friday the 13th movies, notwithstanding)

I would argue that some of these movies were successful in spite of Corey Feldman, rather than because of him. Take Lost Boys for example--Edward Hermann (the poor man's John Lithgow) as the main villain? One of the best casting moves ever made. That totally makes that movie for me.

I'm not going too say that he is what made the movies great, but he didn't ruin them by his presence.
