Before I introduce this video, I just want to say that there is nothing wrong about being passionate about something. Passion can be a good thing, especially when it means finally finding your calling in life.
Passion only becomes a problem when it leads you to do bad things, especially when those things are illegal in nature. So please kids, don’t start smoking crack or start stalking a celeb because both are very illegal activities.
With that in mind, may I present to you (which may or may not, depending on how you see yourself) be) an accurate depiction of what fangirl culture has become according to YouTuber Chris Kendall a.k.a. Crabstickz.
With over 250,000 subscribers and lots of other YouTube famous pals to count on as friends, Chris is somewhat an expert on the topic at hand. Accordingly, this is what he believes are some common qualities among some of YouTube’s most obsessive fans:

So what do we think, ladies? Accurate or just downright wrong on all levels?
Some One Direction fans dealt with their conflicting emotions over Taylor Swift dating Harry Styles by writing song lyrics and singing about it. While many fans are prematurely supporting the blossoming romance (which might be nothing more than a friendship), others are already shipping “Haylor.”
It’s ironic that fans would deal with their grief through song, considering that’s how Taylor sorts through her emotions too. One of those heartbroken Directioners, named ashcollete, uploaded a hilarious parody of “Trouble” called “The Haylor Song.”
Of course, the whole thing is just for fun but I imagine some girls are feeling this troubled about the whole affair.

It’s safe to say that Ed Sheeran’s video for “Give Me Love” was bound to spark curiosity and outrageous fangirl fights. After looking through the comments under the video, I realized a few things:
1. People don’t know who Isabel Lucas is.
2. Isabel Lucas is not in fact Lana del Rey.
3. Ed Sheeran is some form of “ginger jesus.”
Despite all the scrambling to figure out who the angel is in the video, the comments do provide a lot of insight. The “Give Me Love” video lead fans to debate the true meaning of the video. Some say it’s about an angel who acts as cupid to help people find love. Others say she’s Natalie Portman’s doppelganger in “Black Swan.” Despite the cringe-worthy scene in which the angel pulls a feather out of her back, Ed Sheeran has helped create a lovely video that sparked discussion on some pretty deep topics.
But enough of the serious stuff. Here are 15 hilarious (and some sweet) comments via the Sheeran fandom.
“Joe Goes” comedian took on Twilight fans camped outside Nokia Theatre for the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 and did all sorts of blasphemous stuff, like ripping the novel and calling the movie horrible.
“Spoiler alert, it sucks,” he told one fan about the film. While some of the fans reacted with gaping mouths and sharp intakes of breath, one girl gave him a noogie. But that reaction is only expected when a Twilight hater starts talking about Dune and Lord of the Rings.
The Matt Friedman-directed clip might make you worry for the next generation. While I love Twilight as much as the next person, these fans take it to the next level! Still, we all have to fangirl for something, right? The movie will be in theatres on Nov. 16.

If you ever stay at the same hotel as a celebrity with whom you share a mild resemblance, I recommend taking advantage of it. A simple smile or wave from a blurry distance might earn you starstruck squeals from preteen girls. That’s exactly what happened to these two guys who were staying at the same hotel as One Direction during their time in Milan at the Hotel Principe di Savoia.
About three or four hundred fangirls were patiently waiting outside for the band so the two colleagues stood by the window and pretended to be two of the guys in the band (I’m guessing Louis and Niall?). One of them wrote on YouTube: “We kept this up all day and they never got it… the most fun we have had in ages.”
If you want your 15 seconds of fame, this is the easy way to do it.

When I was in second grade the video for “Quit Playin’ Games” by The Backstreet Boys was released, marking the precise moment when my fangirl days started. Now when I see the new generation of fangirls and fanboys, I can’t help but feel nostalgic, recalling fond memories of buying magazines whenever my favourite group was on the cover, collecting clippings of EVERY photo and interview, sending fan mail to the addresses listed and waiting for that autographed poster that never came (I’m looking at you BSB). And yes, I had to deal with the ridicule from those who just didn’t get it.
How do you know when you’ve crossed onto fangirl territory? Here are the top five signs, from a tried and true fangirl:
1. Your bedroom wall is a shrine
You’ve collected every over-sized poster from magazines, turning your bedroom walls from paint to One Direction wallpaper. Your parents admitted they almost feel uncomfortable in your room when Harry’s looking at you like that. Yes, my parents did actually tell me something similar…
2. You know every lyric and will sing their songs anywhere
You get excited everytime you hear your tune playing, regardless of where you are at any moment. For example, if your in the vegetable aisle at the grocery store and 1D’s “One Thing” starts playing, you immediately start singing and dancing. Not lying, this tends to still happen to me whenever I hear “Backstreet’s Back.”
3. You shed a lot of tears for them
You start a concert all like: “Yeah I’m cool and collected,” until they finally hit the stage and you begin hysterically sobbing and screaming, stating “I’m just so happy!” whilst wiping tears.
4. You sleep with them Read more…
