The Yahoo News article, “How Frank Sinatra Invented Justin Bieber,” talks about the origins of the teen heartthrob, and how they can be traced back to Sinatra. History Professor Stanislao Pugliese, who co-directed a number of Sinatra-themed events this fall at Hofstra, said for the story, “I think it’s generally agreed by musicologists and social historians that Sinatra was our first teen idol.” December 12 marked the bicentenary of Sinatra’s birth.
