Who did you idolize as a teenager? Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-Ga over Duran Duran? In love with Justin Bieber?Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?
None of the above is all I can say. I saw some Bengali movies of Suchitra- Uttam. I felt they were the best and only ones worth watching on the silver screen. I was fifteen, living in Comilla,Bangladesh.
My mom did not like the idea of me watching movies, once in a while my aunt would take me to watch them. This was the time the Suchitra- Uttam duo were extremely popular in Bangladesh.. They were good actors and were handsome. I did not have any knowledge of good and bad acting, but I loved to watch this pair, whenever their movies were released.

My answer to the question is,”None of the above”. I did not know any of them, maybe they are or were super talented people,but their voices did not reach me where I lived as a teenager.
Since this is a prompt about teen age idol, my answer is I was exposed to Tagore, Rafi, Talat, And Lata to name a few.
My idol was and still is Rabindranath Tagore. His song lyrics are clearly awesome, he loved nature and wrote quite a few songs on nature and was very popular where I lived.
His songs had a calming effect on people including me, we understood them and learned to appreciate them.
