* Lesley Gore was 16 when she recorded and released "It's My Party", a #1 hit single, in 1963. She attended college in 1965, gradually winding down her career while her star faded in the late 1960s, before releasing an entirely self-penned comeback album, ''Someplace Else Now'', in 1972. She remained on the oldies and caberet circuit while recording the occasional album until her death in 2015.

# They act, [[IdolSinger sing]], or both. It tends to be both if their managers have a say in it. Their talent is irrelevant to being a TeenIdol in the first place, but it makes a difference about whether they're VindicatedByHistory.

The most basic way to tell if a celebrity is truly a TeenIdol is by whether they wind up in magazines aimed at the teenage market (like ''Sassy'', ''Tiger Beat'', ''YM'', ''Seventeen'', and ''Teen People'') and by whether they become a poster celebrity. It should be emphasized that TropesAreNotBad and many idols, particularly musicians that legitimately wrote their own material, [[VindicatedByHistory gain critical defenders as time goes on]].
