Poser, follower, a charlatan of sorts. One who copies or immitates all or most of the aspects dealing with their idol. They may wish to have certain clothing, skills, vocabulary, etc., of their idols instead of their own. Most likely a wannabe is lacking in self confidence and is looking for guidance.
The wannabe frequently quoted popular phrases from his favorite rock star.
the black guys at school who think that just because they're black means that they're gangstas. annoy everyone, either black or white. usually listen to tupac and wear chains. go on about their "Crew" and who they shagged last night.

If you are a parent and you fear that your child is a wannabe goth, have no fear, this is just a passing phase. Once your child's friends decide that it's no longer "cool" to be goth, or when they feel they have adequately pissed you off, they'll get over it.
My friends and I loath the wannabe goths at school who listen to horrible metal music and talk about suicide all day.
'wannabe', is a slang version of the actual english equivilant - 'want to be'. there are several ways in which the term can be expressed: in example a) someone who wants to be someone else, they may aspire to the person in question's fashion sense (general appearance), ideas, attitude or music. whereas in b) the noun form of wannabe is infact an insult. it is very likely that you would see this in practice on any of the following, an up and coming popstar, a goth, a chav/townie, and sometimes even old spinsters. all of these stereotypical groupings of people will certainly have wannabes among them. a common one i find in everyday life is that of a wannabe goth. these are people who attempt to dress all in black and wear long matrix like jackets with excessive eyeliner and dye their hair a rather pitiful rainbow colour. someone who is a fully fledged and well known goth will have no worries at being called a wannabe; but small insignificant losers that shop in tammy, mk one, b-wise, and other cheap reproduction shops are a very strong form of wannabes. they will buy overly baggy trousers from tammy, teamed up with a tight black top from mk-one - possibly with already fastened on safety pins and shitty fishnet sleeves, then a un...more...
A wannabe Invisibob is basically someone who can't be an Invisibob, but wants to be.
Therefore, they wear normal clothes, yet hide their face so as to remember our radioactive, floating, boxer-shorted, invisible friends.
