The new teenager generation, born into a culture dominated by 'Pop Media'. Modern Pop Media is the corporate driven marketing force behind
the modern day MTVeenager's mentality and lifestyle.
The sum of an MTVeenager's concerns are as follows
* Mobile Telephones
and associated products
(ring tones, wallpapers, etc)
* MTV and the latest chart music
* Hollywood produced "blockbuster" films.
* Clothes fashions (catering for both
the mainstream and alternative markets (punks, goths) - both
are equally as commercial
as each other.
* Rebelling against
Pop Culture (Please note, those who choose to rebel against
Pop Media by dressing "alternatively" or listening to "alternative" music are equally as guilty of conformity as those who choose to embrace Pop Media.)
The greatest crime of the MTVeenager is living a lifestyle based upon the choices
made by the market forces behind
Pop Media and the approval of their own peers (See: Fashion), rather
than through their own personal preferences.
You may find examples of the MTVeenager on this very website. Here follows
a guide to spotting the breed:
) Notice users commenting
on how certain bands are "not metal" and others are "real metal" (and those who choose to listen to anything else
less capable of detecting musical ability within their preferred
choice of music) - This behaviour
is fuelled by the desire to purposefully not listen to mainstream music due to a need to seem more discering than their
peers, a classic symptom of being
find the very same behaviour
relating to all areas of the MTVeenager's culture. Their
tastes are driven
either by advertising or a desire to be a non-conformist. Therefore, we may assume that a vast proportion of all teenagers are MTVeenagers
and are incapable of embracing their
true personal preferences due to a desire to either 1) Conform to Pop Media or 2) Conform to "alternative" sub-cultures.
us to conclude that our future adult generation is composed of the same unintelligent, socially
inept, greedy, small minded
and prejudiced people as of previous adult generations. Thankfully, this means
we are in no danger of progressing the human race into more insightful ways
And yes, I do realise that this definition contains high levels of irony and hypocrisy, as I too am an MTVeenager like you.
* Preps, Jocks, Nerds, Geeks, Goths, Punks, Greebos, Stoners, Skaters
and anybody who doesn't fit into any of those categories
but is aged between 12 and 20 years
All of which are MTVeenagers.
