GROUPIES VS. FANS

Community

  • GROUPIES VS. FANS
    November 01, 2010

    I've been seeing the topics lately ANGELS, and is it just me or is it that some people can't differentiate the difference between a GROUPIE and a TRUE FAN???

    I personally hate having conversations with chicks where I'll be talkin about Trey and she'll say "OMG! I love Trey! He's so fine" But when you go into further detail with them, they NEVER bought an album, NEVER help with promo, don't know any of the songs from him before the Ready album or off his mixtapes, and hasn't shown any support at all. Basically Trey is someone who if given the opportunity they would try in every way to smash.

    Another thing is when even your own loved ones and friends are telling you that ur "obsessed", a "stalker", or "crazy" just because you choose to support him ... I think it's no different from loving your favorite actor/actress, tv show, sport, hobby, etc.

    I truly appreciate and love seeing the TRUE Trey fans and ANGELS who support him in every aspect...

    What do you think ANGELS? What makes someone a GROUPIE of Trey or a REAL TREY FAN?

    And am I the only one who feels this way? And BTW this is just a topic. Respect EVERYONE'S opinions please! =)

I can't stand groupies, not just Trey's, its any groupie. I classify those kinds as the users. They are like leeches, they take take and take some more for as long as possible then on to the next. They are not supportive unless they believe they'll reap some kind of reward from it. Ughh, just bad, all bad.
But a fan, they're supportive and they want nothing from him really but the best. Well, you know, we want the music to continue or some may "think they're in love" :) with him but seriously doesn't think of him as way to get by or get notoriety. Being a fan doesn't make one a stalker, obsessed, or any of those bad connotations it make you someone that is appreciative of someone's craft. Simple.

I agree with you @Shannon!

b4 trey came out w/ his 1st album i had heard him but didnt know it was him. i had heard sum of his mixed tape and even @ home i heard him on tricks song just cudn't put his face w/ the voice until gotta make it. so i have been a fan 4 a minute like most of us but wat kills me is when sum1 says u'll neva meet him so y go ham 4 sum1 who u will neva c and i tell them whether i meet him or not he has acual talent and thats hard 2 find.

@CoogiDown I didnt literally mean just sex! I used dat as just one of the MANY examples of what groupies do!

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

groupie - someone who intentially seeks benefit from a celebrity. whether it be sex, money, fame... etc. but, NOT JUST SEX.
fan - unselfish person who is really a "fan" that doesnt want anything from the artist. they're doing it for themselves/enjoyment.

I understand Wat u sayn but groupies tryin to fuck ...so groupies may not be the word to use ...but my opinion is pick ur battles I try to not care Wat they say bout trey unless its bad ..cuz u cant blame some one for how much Dey support atlease Dey do...ex.. I like b.o.b he sexy to me I like his music to but I'm not promoting him .do that make me a groupies or a bad b.o.b fan ? Wit trey I feel I got to make this nigga the best cuz dats trey.but b.o.b I jus respect his sexy Ness and some songz .@treysongzang3l. Oh and the definition I got from groupie is a person who seeks emotional and sexual intimacy with a musician or other celebrity. "Groupie" is derived from group in reference to a musical group...

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

I don't take the term personally. Webster defines groupie as a fan (synonyms), while other sites give multiple definitions for the term "groupie." Some say it's an underage female that follows a band, musician, athlete, or artist around trying to sleep with them, and will sleep with anyone who can get them to the celebrity. Urban dictionary had many definitions, but one was an "individual, or group of individuals, involved in obsessive adoration of entertainers." I'm a little obsessed when it comes to Trey. LOL Now do I personally see the terms as different? Hmmm, maybe, but I guess I really never cared. This is the first artist EVER that I go hard for, so I don't really care what the naysayers are saying.

Overall, I believe a fan truly likes an artist for their talent, while a groupie is probably a tad bit fickle & unfocused. They love the hottest thing while it's hot, but they'll quickly replace it for something hotter later on. A fan is loyal.

A groupie is just that = for the group like @ForbiddenAngel stated they will do anything and sleep with ppl close to an artist, actor or someone famous just to get close to them. The REAL fans go unnoticed or are called obsessed but we are the ones who have been there since the beginning of Trey's career! Supporting him and going hard for him. Groupies don't appreciate the time and effort it takes to promote an album or the strenuous work schedule of an artist. At the end of the day a groupie's whole goal is to get with the entertainer, have sex, or get some money and try to be famous. I feel that if that's your goal you shouldn't be in a FAN club because that's NOT what being a REAL FAN is about. And that's all I have to say about the situation.

@Shay Sis I think this is a great topic and it will always be open for discussion and debate because everyone has their own opinions on it. LOVE IT

Well I have had so many people call me a groupie/fan whateva.. but i love Trey's music...first that is what drawed me to him as an artist!! The sex appeal came second.. But I agree with the previous posts on the difference between a groupie & a fan. A groupie is definitely out for their own personal gain vs a fan who is not out to get anything but to support someone they love

Shay - Epiphany Angel's picture

@ForbiddenAngel Yep! But some people just dont get that. Oh well... Can't please everyone. *shrugs*

ForbiddenAngel's picture

I actually started this same topic awhile back because I too was getting a lot of people trying to refer me as a Groupie. A Groupies ultimate goal is to have sex with an artist, and they will do anything necessary to make that happen, such as sleeping with anybody the artist is close with. A Fan is a person that will go to the full out extent to support an artist, like buying all albums, posters, attending several concerts, Obsessing over the artist, you know things of that nature.

Shay - Epiphany Angel's picture

Amen and well said @Linz84!

I think a groupie is a female or male (lol) who do anything in their power to sleep with a certain celeb. If your supporting your favorite celeb (buying the person cd, going to their concert, etc) then I consider you to be a fan. Some people need to learn the difference between those two words. If someone call you a groupie is because they jealous and want to start something with you.

Shay - Epiphany Angel's picture

Thanks for the input ladies! I agree with you @oneshadowlove in a way, but alot of people try to tend to throw everyone in the groupie category just cuz we joined the fan club and we go hard for Trey. Which gets back to my point of how some people cannot tell the difference. *smh*

lol@thelsteve I m soooo sleepy be throwing Angel spears when im tired I just be going and going ha ha I love this site more than twitter we really connect closer on twitter u cant catch everones tweets and ect but its all good thanks for listening to my crazy Heaven Sent self... I am on my Trey High energy tonight im bout to go to bed soon u be blessed

oneshadowlove's picture

Im going to say this... a groupie isn't apart of this FANCLUB TreysAngels.... #thatisAll
How ppl choose to support Trey is their business... a Groupie is a person who is out to have sex, get money or be involved with a celebrity NO matter who they are. And you see them chase after multiple celebs will sleep w/ friends, co workers, bodyguards, etc., to get to that CELEBRITY. Trey is the ONLY person and I mean the only person who can determine who he feel is a groupie or a true fan. There are different types of FANS but only one type of GROUPIE. Ya feel me?

These are my thoughts.... Shadwanda #1stLadyAngel

@Shay I think you distinguished between the two very well. And no you are most definitely not the only one who feels that way. Some peeps are hella confused and need some guidance LOL!

I think you clearly summed up what a groupie and a fan is.

TreysInspiration's picture

I agree and yea the groupie types are not classy and the true fans are the ones who carry themselves like ladies its ok to have a wild side but know when and where to share it groupies only get used up and booted theres no furture in their fronting used and abused true fans get noticed and get loved for how they present themselves in all settings trust celebrities may look at a groupie but they sure aint taking her home to meet mama... this is a good discussion@shay_bae89
