Taken straight from dictionary.com, here is the actual definition of poseur:
po·seur
One who affects a particular attribute, attitude, or identity to impress or influence others.
(French, from poser, to pose, from Old French.)

Contrary to popular belief, poseur can also be spelled "poser".. hence this definition from dictionary.com:
pos·er
1) One who poses. 2) A poseur.

...for those of you who are still in denial, type both spellings into dictionary.com and see for yourselves.
Anyone who is not true to their own interests and tries to be someone else in attempt to look "cool" or "punk" or "scene" or whatever.
