Teenage Crush Edition

by

crush.jpgLong gone are the days of Video Soul and the green-eyed VJ Donnie Simpson. But for many of us, the memories of our favorite teenage crushes still remain fresh in our minds. Remember running home from the bus stop to watch your favorite videos on BET? Or purchasing the latest edition of Fresh Magazine just to have a poster of your favorite boy band? Everyone has had at least one boy band/group/artist that made them melt; one worth arguing with siblings or cousins about because you were going to be the one to marry them. The teenage crush is serious and in some ways it helped many develop particular tastes in the music selections enjoyed today. In this edition of Clutch Magazine, we pay homage to the men who once held a place in our hearts and on our bedroom walls.
