To want to write 'I love Plan B' all over my pencil case?

This is the singer..not the emergency contraception! I'm 35, happy, good career, great personal life etc and generally a grown-up but I have turned into an absolute teenager about this man!. Ive even bought a massive (admittedly black and white arty kind) canvas of him and put it up in my lounge . I LOVE it but essentially its just a more expensive and smarter looking equivalent of sticking his poster on the wall isn't it? I never really did the teen in love with Bros or Take That thing so why the hell am I doing it at this age?! So..shall I try and grow up or just embrace it and buy a pencil case and write his name all over it?

My sister is in one of his videos (she's also been in vids for The Wanted, Take That etc). He is very shy apparently. Oh and he's called Ben. grin I love his song Stay Too Long. I have both of his albums. He's very sweary. Thats it. Not sure if I'd put up a picture of him though. You must really like him.

Oh I'd do him in a second!
Not sure he's worthy of an art canvas like....but I wouldn't say no to a go.

Well..... He is quite a cutey but he is a smoker which always puts me off a bit and I am partial to the odd random schoolgirl cruch despite my advancing age.

I think if you have already done the poster 'canvas' you might as well go the whole way and doodle all over your pencil case. Will you have to buy a pencil case or do you still have one? Make sure you draw lots of hearts too. As long as you don't get a tatoo then it is all perfectly acceptable

(If you have teenagers they may find it a bit cringeworthy )

And in my opinion he's only got one really good song.
The album was pretty meh.

Oh I love him!!! Ben drew, what a god!

Ps: he has more than 2 albums.

pictish Fri 24-May-13 08:50:50

But he's pretty.

Yanbu. prayin is one of my favorite songs.

pictish Fri 24-May-13 08:53:19

Yeah...I never bothered with the other stuff, going on TDOSB.
Too many bands and artists to get to know...no second chances. wink

Terrible actor though in the Sweeney. Tbf they all were though in that filmgrin

Lj8893 Fri 24-May-13 08:55:09

His first album in my opinion was his best, no actions speak louder than words. Charmaine is an genius song!

ihatethecold Fri 24-May-13 08:55:30

Have you watched the film he directed.

Gritty ain't the word..

Forgot the name of it now....blushblush

Lj8893 Fri 24-May-13 08:57:18

Ill manors.

Spice17 Fri 24-May-13 08:59:58

YANBU. At all. Love him and the song Stay too long with his aggressive, sweary rap in, oooh get me!

Spice17 Fri 24-May-13 09:01:43

Not meaning to hijack but what about Calvin Harris as well? Oh my GOD, he's hot. Did I just say that blush

mrsdrew Fri 24-May-13 09:07:36

Got all the albums, films, read every interview etc. I know all the words to all the songs and I didn't have to get them out of Smash Hits!. I even do the rap parts when singing along..oh God I'm ridiculous. And I want to do very naughty things to him...

Lj8893 Fri 24-May-13 09:09:46

Mrsdrew (fantastic name) reading your post I felt that I could have written it. Great minds think alike.

Lj8893 Fri 24-May-13 09:12:13

I've just remembered when i saw him live, it was at a university festival and he was the last act on and I was bursting for the toilet but knew the minute I left to go an use the portaloos he would come on! So I waited and watched his whole set thinking my bladder was actually going to burst. Now that's dedication. I'm actually surprised I didn't wet myself when he came on!!

mrsdrew Fri 24-May-13 09:28:43

In response to you lovely people..I'm new and dont know how to link ur names into posts yet... Iknow..I will have to buy a pencil case and yes, I shall put lots of hearts on and also write on a folder which I will carry around on full display. Yourma..your sister was in one of his videos? OMG that's amazers!! Did she touch him? I'm well jel!. LJ, do u want to come round for tea and we can listen to his records and cut out his picture from magazines? I think I'd wet my pants if I saw him..and it wouldn't be wee. I understand if u don't want to come round for tea after that comment..you would not be being unreasonable!

DP looks rather a lot like Plan B according to people in the street who tell him so and sounds quite like him too

<preens>

On a serious note; not only is he incredibly talented, he's set up an organisation in London to help marginalized and troubled young people. I work with peeps like this in another City and its heartbreaking to see so many end up in gangs, prison or secure MH units. We need more orgs. like his in the UK. Top bloke and mighty fine to boot...sings 'Love goes down' to self while gazing at my 'wall art'..

Sorry I meant both of his last main albums. Its weird when you look at old footage of him on Youtube. He was so skinny. Not calling him fat btw he's just beefed himself up a bit.

I'm in my forties (how did that happen?) and still get crushes-not on Plan B, though he does have a certain something, I suppose. It's allowed! And fun. Draw the line at posters on the wall, though! (And if I didn't, DH certainly would).

My 4 year-old DS has a little crush on one of his friends. He doesn't even know he's got a crush on her, just goes pink when he holds her hand in the park.

Defamation of Strickland Banks is the best album ever.....fact smile

....but when I see him in Harry Brown I think how can such a horrid person (in the film that is) have such a lovely voice!!

scortja Fri 24-May-13 12:34:48

I realised I was old when I read about the organisation mrsdrew mentioned and thought 'what a lovely young man. we need more of his sort' etc etc rather than instantly falling in love with him..

PseudoBadger Fri 24-May-13 12:38:49

You have to write BIBTOTF on the pencil case too

burberryqueen Fri 24-May-13 12:43:46

grin at mrsdrew's pencil case and folder - love plan b too btw, that album, was it the defamation of strickland banks? or was that a song? dunno i am too old to find out, but he is great anyway, love it when that 'she said' comes on the radio.

You need to use the sharp end if a math compass to scratch his name into your arm, then fill it in with ink.

burberryqueen Fri 24-May-13 13:06:31

oooh no kickassangel a mapping pen is much more effective!
