It’s understandable that celebrity would change a person. Going from occasionally impoverished beginnings to the heights of expensive superstardom, a person could afford all the stylists, trainers, and makeup artists required to look photo ready every morning.
A person is also not typically fully formed in high school. They might have baby fat to lose, braces to get removed, or hair that will change color and consistency. But those are little changes that onlookers don’t necessarily notice because they happen so gradually.
But celebrities have certain things that are their “thing.” You know it’s a Pitbull song because at a certain point you’re going to hear “DALE!” or “Mr. 305!” A lot of the time, these “things” are looks. Nicki Minaj has her legendary all-encompassing butt. Ariana Grande has her hair. Even though celebrities reinvent themselves continually, there’s always a default, reference point.
These are ten famous celebrities from before they reached their final form as public figures. It’s not so much funny because of an attractive/ unattractive thing. Most of them in high school were perfectly unremarkable. It’s more funny because they were unremarkable, and now they are the most remarked upon people in the world.

Kesha, born Kesha Rose Sebert, but passing through Ke$ha before landing on this spelling, was at one point of the biggest pop stars in the world, having had such #1 single as “We R Who We R” and “Tik Tok”. She’s known for her bangin’ bod, her crazy hair, her crazy clothes, and her breath that smells like Jack Daniels in the morning (mine smells like mint…) That’s why this picture of her is so astounding. Look how frumpy she was! Not only was she not completely fabbed up, she was androgynously wearing a Lakers teeshirt to go with her Twister Sister hair and puka shell necklace. Homegirl needed to pick a lane! Well, she eventually grew into her sense of style and her sense of self and became more famous than most people can dream of. Guess that teaches us to tease nerds, albeit behind their backs.
