I have precious little to say on the non-issue of fangirls needlessly hating on each other’s objects of affection, but since obviously no such fans were able to read my now-embarrassingly-earnest old post about the mutual disdain some members of the JB and TH camps hold for each other…it has come up again.
It is not a big deal, it is what happens when your love is deep and you are too young to have anything better to do with your time; the 13-year-old-fangirl-within-me understands better than you know.
And while the current-me has not a bone to pick with Tokio Hotel or their fans, the 13-year-old-fangirl-within-me wanted to rub it in Tokio Hotel fans’ face that my fave music industry blog, the always too-cool-not-to-qualify Idolator, posted an article in which the tough to budge Kate Richardson had this to say on the issue (after the jump):
All this fuss for a band [Tokio Hotel] who look and sound like living Anime characters took music lessons from Evanescence. Sigh.
Having experienced firsthand both Jonas Brothers and Tokio Hotel fandemonium, I can confirm that both groups are essentially identical in terms of rabidness and delusion. The Jonas Brothers fans may skew a bit younger, and be more inclined to use lip gloss, but they’re just one trip to Hot Topic away from the Tokio Hotel fandom. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
(Though, for the record, my official position is that the Jonas Brothers are far easier on the ears.)
