Someone who pretends to be something they know they are not.
"i know this poser who thinks he is metal but he is really just a scene kid, his name is Matt Flores"

A person who tries to be like everyone else and epically fails. Someone who thinks that looking like a barbie doll is "cool" or caking makeup on their faces makes them look any better. A person who pretends to be someone they're not.
For example, Miley Cyrus is a poser because she pretends to be someone who doesn't even exist and then goes around kissing every co-star she gets (which makes her a slut).

Posers are people who "pose" as something they're not, pretend to look like a group of people, like punks, headbangers or stoners, usually related to music.
That was the simple way, now here's the real definition, according to me: Posers are usually people that don't fit in, so trying to fit in, they act like the people around them, pretending to like the music, have the attitude, and also dressing like them. I will use as an example the tipical poser stoner.
A lot of people don't like stoners, is it because they smoke weed, act like that or because they think that stoners are hippies or something like that, but i think stoners are cool people to be around, i would actually call myself one. But the poser stoner don't really think like his friends, so here are some of the things a poser stoner usually do:

smoke weed as a drug, not as a way to think about life and have fun
Struggle through Dark Side of The Moon and call himself a Pink Floyd fan, and when someone is talking about pink floyd, all he has to say is "they're great! i love their attitude! DSOTM is a great album!"
Can't chill and listen to a Jimi Hendrix song, he has to headbang or air guitar his way through the song
Fills his Ipod with Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix songs, even though he hasn't listened to any of those since he was in his friend's.
Thinks surfing is a way to show off to his/her friends
If offered some drug as meth, coke or crack, he/she would deffinitely do it
That's all i know about posers, if you spot one, fuck him, let it be

1) a kid who does something just because its what everyone else is doing

2) has no style of his/her own

3) does what everyone else does

4) nobody likes them
a kid who starts skating because he started watching viva la bam or rob and big

someone who dresses normal one day and tries to dress like a skater another

POSER

A poser is someone who poses for something. Trying to be something they're really not. They want to be it so bad (wannabe), but unfortunately they don't do it naturally. People can see right through posers. Usually posers are a midway of things because posers are always "half-in" than full.
The Pussycatdolls are posers. They are a group of six or seven talentless girls who can't sing or dance for their live. They wear tacky, slutty, clothing and hope that their skimpy clothes make up for their lack of talent. I still don't know if they are trying to be showgirls, prostitutes, or dirty broadway singers.

1. Any person who conforms to a fashion statement rather than an ideal or way of life. Most American universities, colleges and secondary schools keep a steady population of poseurs, usually in art classes and libraries. The poser is known to congregate in small groups, usually of their own ilk, or with real punkers or metalheads in an attempt to fit in. The telltale sign of a poseur is their lack of knowledge of music, art and the culture they are pretending to portray. As an example, the roots of the punk rock movement was based more on all out rebellion and an attitude going against the social status quo and morays. In contrast, the poseur holds none of these values, yet will pretend to.
"My advanced ceramics class is chock full of hipster poser fucks. All they do flip their scarves around and talk about going to shows and making out and doing their hair."

"Did you see those two hardcore guys beat the snot out of that poser guy after the show?"
"Yeah, they broke his nose and stole his scarf"
"Serves him right for wearing a scarf in the summer"
