I normally don't like to recycle topics, but what can I say? People love to see celebrities before they hit it big. It's like gawking at animals in the zoo.
Let's start with a British person.
Today, we know him as the arrogant talent show judge who has scowled at television cameras for the past decade.
In 1979, teenage Simon was a questionable dresser who made a living as a disco DJ in a hotel. It's nice to know his personality hasn't changed.
I've spent way too many years trying to figure out if this television/radio host is a robot.
Needless to say, I was shocked when I saw his childhood photo.
She is one of the most famous sex symbols of our generation.
But before Baywatch and plastic surgery, the gorgeous Canadian was a fitness instructor turned model, after being discovered in the crowd of a football game.
I've never been a big fan of Fergie. I've always thought she looked a bit scary.
So, imagine my astonishment to find out she actually used to be quite pretty. I believe she is a teenager in this photo.
And finally, I'm going to leave you with:
Before she was the hot mess pop princess we know today, Ke$ha went through an awkward middle school alternative rock phase.
Below is a really shitty video of her performing at her seventh grade talent show in Nashville. It's worth a click just for the audio alone. Enjoy!
