Most people go through serious awkward phases during adolescence, but (thankfully) they tend to grow out of them. I actually have a few photos that I like to show off to friends, who don’t even recognize me as the bespectacled, braces-clad preteen in them. And, while I detest the phrase “Stars! They’re just like us!”, it is kind of true, especially when it comes to old photos. (Just take a look at Ke$ha up there.) Click here to see seven more photos of pre-fame celebrities (and see if you can guess who is in them)!
Do you recognize Lana Del Rey in that photo? I didn’t!
OK, not all of these celebrities look awkward in these shots. (Is Beyoncé even allowed to look awkward? Ever?) But it’s still fun to take a peek into their pasts, when they were average humans, just like us. Head on over to the source to see even more photos! [via Buzzfeed]
