A term for "glitter" in a language collectively referred to as "Bostonese" by fans of the New Kids on the Block. There are many words that can be translated into Bostonese by simply dropping an "-er" suffix and replacing it with "-ah." The origin of the word "Glittah" is said to have surfaced when NKOTB member Jonathan Knight went to hug a heavily embellished fan and then withdrew, saying "No glittah! No glittah!" for fear of getting glitter on his own clothing.
Joey Mac girls love their bling, but even they know not to wear glittah around Jonathan Knight!
