Random 90's Teen Idol News

1200Okay my lovely readers, I am aware that it is Friday which means I should be featuring a fellow blogger, but to be honest I am just too tired to pick one tonight. Rest assured "Follow Them Friday" will return next week. I will even prepare the post this weekend so this doesn't happen again. In the meantime, please continue reading the following post and make sure you leave me a comment if you would like to be featured next week for Follow Them Friday!

So this past week has been a little trip down memory lane for me in pop culture. My "My 5 Monday" posting featured my fav TV shows as a child and my blogging buddy Jess had a 90's tribute all week which I completely enjoyed! Check her out HERE. I promise you won't be disappointed! Anyways, Wednesday night I was bored on the internet so I decided to check out Entertainment Weekly's website to see what was going on in the celeb world. Well the first thing I see on there is "LFO lead singer Rich Cronin, 35, dies after battle with leukemia". I was completely shocked! I will admit I LOVED their song "Summer Girls" back in 1999. I am pretty sure that song helped Abercrombie & Fitch sales a great deal also. It was kind of a ridiculous song, but pretty catchy. Well I was extremely surprised to read this on EW's website, especially since I subscribe to text alerts from E!. Seriously E!, this is the news that I actually care to get texts about. I don't care to get texts about Linday Lohans every move towards crazy, or Paris Hilton's escape trip to Hawaii (that is actually the text I got from E! that day). In my opinion, people dying is more of a news alert than overnight "celebs" vacation plans. Maybe thats just me though...

In other random 90's teen idol news, my former celeb crush Jonathan Taylor Thomas turned 29 this week. I saw that on EW's website Wednesday night also. He will be 30 next year and I feel OLD!!!

Well just a random rambling from me today :)

Enjoy a trip down memory lane and listen to some LFO...does anyone NOT remember this song? RIP Rich Cronin!

  7. HAHA! So I absolutely remember the very first time I saw that video. I was babysitting, and the kids were in bed (I was like 16 or something) and I remember thinking "These guys are the next Backstreet Boys or NSYNC... if I know about them before everyone else, I will be cool by association! Awesome plan!"

    So I very, very intently watched the video and learned the words and memorized everything the VJ said about them. At school on Monday I pretended to be all tres cool about it, but nobody else had heard of them, so I looked like a loser anyway.

    Good times.
