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]].

People have been declared teen idols for as long as being a teenager has been recognized[[note]]which, by the way, is NewerThanTheyThink - until the 1950's, anybody under the age of 18 was just seen as a "child"[[/note]]. Many, but not all, have been specifically groomed for this purpose. They generally have several things in common:

** HilaryDuff, Disney's first attempt at creating a teen idol. ** RavenSymone, Disney's second attempt at creating a teen idol. Symone was also a part of Film/TheCheetahGirls. ** MileyCyrus, probably their most successful to date. ** DemiLovato. ** SelenaGomez. ** And then you have BridgitMendler, DebbyRyan, BellaThorne, {{Zendaya}}, LauraMarano, ChinaAnneMcClain, [[Series/DogWithABlog G. Hannelius]], [[Series/LivAndMaddie Dove Cameron]], and OliviaHolt...the list just goes on. Ross Lynch and Jake Short are the channel's male faces.

* Music/TheJackson5 (featuring Michael Jackson), and Michael Jackson the solo singer when he was in his teens. The "King of Pop," incidentally, was one of the few teen idols whose teen stardom parlayed into a career in adulthood, and to say it was successful would be a gross understatement.

* Creator/JenniferLawrence.

** Music/VictoriaJustice (''Series/{{Victorious}}''). This show also spawned Creator/ArianaGrande, who became more popular than Justice ever was and spun her character off into [[Series/SamAndCat her own series]]).

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': Ali Larter was clearly intended to be the pinup of choice from this show, but Creator/HaydenPanettiere turned out to be the one teenage guys (and more than a few ''post-''teenage guys) really went for.
