Someone classed as a wannabe is generally considered a bad person simply because they want to be something that they aren't yet. Something most people cannot seem to understand is that everyone is a wannabe at some point in their life. You make fun of that "barbie wannabe" over there thinks she has to have big boobs or be really skinny to be around the type of people she likes, she will learn to make it her own as time goes on. You make fun of that girl covered in makeup and stuck in class faking a hangover because she thinks it will make her popular, she will learn either by friends, family, or time that it only makes her look... significantly unintelligent. I'm sure at one point in your life you've tried hard to be someone or something when you weren't quite there yet, right?
Ignorant 1: "Dude, that girl's makeup is way too dark. She thinks she's goth. She's so retarded."
Ignorant 2: "Ugh, I know, right? She's such a wannabe."
Intelligent: "You say that like you never wanted to be a super hero as a kid. Wanting to feel accepted isn't retarded. Judging someone for wanting to start defining themselves differently is. It has to be the most hypocritical thing a person can do."

Is that Neo shopping at Walmart? Pfft... what a wannabe

Gotta love those wannabes stepping out of a '95 Taurus with brand new Ray Bans. Makes you wonder why do they always look around when they do so... also how many paychecks are they sporting over their eyes as they do so.

Stop telling me about that trust fund and get me two more Big Macs, you wannabe
