Idolizing people

See, the thing is, I tend to idolize people a lot. And I mean a lot. Be it celebrities, friends, people I wish I was friends with, it doesn't matter.
And apparently, that's a bad thing. And I disagree. I mean, when I tell someone I look up to them they immediately go "oh no you shouldn't I'm not worth it I'm not that perfect blah blah". This became a thing among british vloggers a few months ago, too. I think Louise (Sprinkle of glitter) started it with this video (and it seems to be most people's view on the subject) with which I agree to some extent. However, most of it I just can't accept. I mean yes, of course youtubers are not perfect, nobody is and that's okay and it does not mean that being inspired by someone and idolizing someone doesn't nessesarily mean you consider them Gods among men. Then there was Alfie (PontlessBlog)'s video which is kind of what I want to say. Okay, I realize there are people that take idolizing to a whole new level, a whole new, frightening and unhealthy level of blind support but come on, we are not all like this. I lost the train of my thought so I will just continue in hopes someone, somewhere actually understands me.
Examples. For example, I idolize the fuck out of Gerard Way. I all but worship him (okay, not really but you get it) and the dude is far from perfect. And he probably fucks up, has fucked up, does stupid things but boy do I admire how he handles it. And what he stands up for. And how fucking artistic he is. And then there is Jacoby Shaddix, and actually, I think every person I've ever idolized is very much fucked up in one way or another and that's what I admire so much. They have gone through things and they still go through things but in the end of the day they are still here, no matter what and that is some strenght there. Strenght is awesome, strenght is admirable and strenght is idol-worthy. 

I guess this was just a long overdue rand over being slightly offended by a youtube video. I refuse to be told who I should or shouldn't idolize, admire, look up to, whatever you call it. I feel like if I continue this paragraph I'll just retell Alfie's video even more than I already did. So, the end.
I swear this post had some sort of structure in my mind. Oh well.

Sigh. Just sigh.

 It irks me to no end when I see all those comments on 5 Seconds Of Summer videos, about how they're boyband with instruments and they suck and they won't last more than a year. Fuck you, fuck you and fuck you. And it's not just the fact that I'm a fan, I mean - if you try to listen to All Time Low or Good Charlotte even or a ton of other bands that have the "rock" status, pop rock or otherwise and no one questions them. (other than the usual <this is not true enough> argument, but the rock & metal fanbase isn't really known for being tolerant). My point was, if you take out All Time Low or Good Charlotte's vocals from their songs and put 5 Seconds of Summer instead it could easily become something very similar to their actual songs. (am i making sense? i am in my head but idk) Basically, the only difference is that they are young, pretty (no offence to ATL but you know what I mean) and tour with One Direction. Fucking stereotypes. Why does a pretty face always need to mean bad music, ffs.
I honestly think they have a long way to go, even after the fangirl hype around them dies out.

Now. What the fuck was the point of this post?
