* Lesley Gore was 16 when her debut "It's My Party" went to #1. After attending college in 1965, she kickstarted a modestly successful adult career with the 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.

* Creator/JasonBateman during his days on ''Series/TheHoganFamily'' (the series originally known as ''Valerie'').
* Patty Duke with her [[Series/ThePattyDukeShow self-titled sitcom]]. She later found modest success in [[TomHanksSyndrome more dramatic fare]].



* Music/TheJacksonFive (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.

# 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]].

* Music/{{NSYNC}} was this in the late-90's/early-2000's. Music/JustinTimberlake is this now.
* Music/BackstreetBoys were also this in the late-90's/early-2000's (albeit more in the late-90's).

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:
