Celebrities before they were famous

I always think it fun to see what celebrities looked like before they became famous, it's kinda nice to know they were once pretty much like everyone else.

Ke$ha - Looks like Ke$ha had a little bit of an out there style before her she started singing, but I'd say cutting up the t-shirt was a smart move...

Ryan Seacrest - He was sooo cute as a little kid! Looks happy too :)  Although I'm guessing he's a little more popular now...

Katy Perry - Or is it Katy Brand now? Or Katy Perry-Brand? Before Katy Perry kissed a girl and liked it, she was had a Christian music album and blond hair. But I'm guessing in her case, brunettes have more fun!
Taylor Swift - She looks almost the same as she did when she was little! A little make-up and help from a hair stylist definitely make her movie star gorgeous!
 
Lil Jon - This one has to be one of my favorites!  He totally changed his image, and I can't picture him in his high school prom tux shouting "Okay!" "Yeah!" and What?!" over Usher songs

Lady Gaga - Or Stefani Germanotta before she went Gaga.  Lady Gaga changes her look for often that it's hard to pick a look, but I think you have to go back in time to see her with brown hair in a pony tail with barely any make-up...

Jenny - Now don't get me wrong, I'm definitely NOT applicable to the celebrity part of this post, however, I thought it was only fair to these celebs that I showed a picture of me with mall bangs 

XOXO

Katy Perry's always been pretty! And so are you!

Dee Stephens said...

That picture of you as a kid is hysterical! Kesha is the most dramatic makeover~

Fashion Meets Food said...

Isnt this crazy. My best friend is actually Katy Perry's cousin and she said she has no idea why she ever went blonde. She's gorgeous though. I think lady gaga was so pretty when she was a brunette. It's fun to see celebrity pictures like this.

Love your hair in the before lol is it crimped or is your hair curly?

MJ said...

Oh you were cute! I love your bangs :) hehe. I remember when my mom tried to get my bangs to do that, but they're too straight and would never stay!

Kesha is seriously crazy. No wonder she walks around like she thinks she's the bomb, she used to be so ugly!

Kerr said...

Nikosmommy said...

It's crazy how much people change!
Ryan Seacrest has changed for the better!

CMae said...

Katy Perry's real last name is Hudson but because there was already a famous Kate Hudson she took her mom's maiden name (perry) and on Ellen she did say she will soon be Katy Perry Brand! Whew what a mouthful!

Tara said...

ohmygosh. kesha. ugh.

and tswift looks exactly the same!!

Lacey in the City said...

Oh these are funny! Wow Ke$ha and KP don't look the same at all...funny what money and a great stylist can do for you, huh?

Jammer said...

Oh wow on Ke$ha! School pictures are always the worst though! I always looked super shiny in mine lol.

Styles 'n Cream said...

This was so much fun. I like how you included yourself in the mix.

P.S. Stop by my blog if you have a chance - I am hosting an amazing EmersonMade giveaway, just in time for the holidays!

Anna Walker said...

SO weird!
I feel super super bad for Ryan Seacrest seriously I do! Oh and Ke$ha isn't even recognizable in her 'before' picture.

Jessica said...

Hahaha Kesha, or should I say Ke$ha, and Ryan Seacrest are my favorites I think! This is so funny. I thought TSwift looked a lot better when she first became famous, like what her first album cover looked like. She is too pale and thin these days!

Kristin said...

wow I am dying over Kesha!! BIG change!!

~k said...

Those pics are really funny! I love your pic! I remember when everyone had permed bangs and I wanted them really bad. So my mom and grandma tried to perm my bangs, but it didn't work. I was seriously so sad! haha!

OMG! I found a blog that is probably as obsessed with Hollywood as I am! I should blog about it more but I'm scared I'd lose followers. It's a big problem.

I haven't seen that one of Ke$ha before. WOW! Times have changed in a good way for her and could Lil Jon's lips have been ANY BIGGER!? That pic was awesome!

Neat blog! I stalked it for a minute. I think I found you via Hair So Big.

Kara said...

Lady Gaga was prettier before!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

The first two....wow!!! I would never have guessed that was Ke$ha

jadore said...

These are always fun to look at!

Marian said...

Lil Jon is hands down my favorite. ANd I kind of think Young Taylor Swift kind of looks like Kate Bosworth

Oh, My Darling said...

Loving all the fun flashback photos!

Great pix!!! But, I have to say, I dont believe thats Lil Jon.. I work in artistic interpretations of faces.. And I've found that the best way to identify people after they've changed overtime is to look at their eyebrow/brow line, and their nose (these things change very little after puberty). The nose and brows in the Lil Jon pix are NOTHING alike.. plus, while he was full lips now, his top lip especially is somewhat flat.. the before pic shows lips that aren't full, and flat but full and plumped out. Nevertheless... great page!!
