My first crush...


Yes, David Bowie, as Jareth the Goblin King, in the movie Labyrinth.

When he sings the line, "Your eyes can be so cruel, just as I can be so cruel".

Oh man, I get tingles just thinking about it.

Am I alone? Come on ladies & gentlemen, I know I'm not. Fess up.

Okay, if it's not Jareth, then who was your first celebrity crush?

P.S. You;ve gotta check out this freakin' sweet Jareth costume.

Also Bowie.

Although more so from his music career and image not from that movie.

Although, I do own the vinyl soundtrack to Labyrinth. Love it.

My oldest sister would agree with you I think. For me not so much.

I dont remember my first crush but how about Paul Walker or Jonathon Taylor Thomas or Rider Strong.

Davy Jones. Do you even know who that is? Probably not, because I was 20 years too late to have a crush on him. I watched reruns of The Monkees on Nick-At-Nite as a kid, and fell head over heels in love with Davy Jones. I had no idea that I was watching a show that aired over a decade before my birth, ha.

Labrynth made me love david bowie! He is such a cool guy even though he is super old now too haha

Wasn't the goblin king everyone's first crush? Not sure why the makeup, tight pants and crazy hair worked, but it did!

I love Labyrinth, but I always thought David Bowie looked a little too freaky in that outfit. I've never been interested in a guy wearing spandex, yuck. My first celebrity crush would have to be David Duchovny. Too bad he's messed up his life now. "David Duchovny, why don't you love me?"

I did a post about this. Mine was Bret Michaels. I was in the 4th grade. Holy inappropriate!

David Bowie *was* pretty hot back then. I had a thing for John Schneider on The Dukes of Hazzard, and I also loved Erik Estrada who was on the TV show CHiPs. Man, I thought they were both sooooo dreamy...!

(Erik Estrada is still kind of good-looking, but John Schneider is still totally HOT.)

Hulk Hogan. So gross. My brothers and dad watched a lot of wrestling.

Ashley's answer crack me up.

I can't remember if I had any celebrity crushes. Maybe Kirk Cameron? Anyway, the Bowie in Labyrinth totally FREAKED ME OUT. The whole movie did, actually.

If you put Scott in that outfit and hair...he would look kinda like him...hmmm? My first celebrity crush was Kurt Russell in" Follow Me Boys". Too bad he has been living with Goldie Hawn for 30 years.

not such a big bowie fan, though i watched labyrinth with my younger brother and sister one night last month and couldn't stop staring at his costume, makeup and hair. i guess i never really looked that closely before!

but my biggest celebrity crush is probably leonardo dicaprio. titanic came out when i was in 5th grade and i was hooked. i guess it could have been worse, right?

Joan said...

AH ha HA HA! I could NOT agree more!!! What is it with his punk rocker wig and tights?! OWWWW! The Labyrinth is CLASSIC.

@Smithy
It works because it's David Bowie! he was one of the non asian music stars that could pull off throwing a concert in drag and that's all there is to say, I am a male and I have to say that yes, I have a man crush on bowie. nothing wrong with that.
