General English

  • noun a girl follower of a singer or pop group


  • noun a girl who associates with or follows a musical group or star. The term originally assumed, and still implies, the sexual availability of the girl. The word and the phenomenon were publicised in the late 1960s, particularly in the semi-autobiographical book Groupie by the British writer Jenny Fabian in 1968 and the US film Groupie Girl, 1969.
