Before They Were Famous: Can You Tell These Pop Stars From Their Yearbook Photos?

We have all paid a ton of money to see these pop divas in concert, bought their albums, watched their videos and sang their songs. We have seen them at their best and all done up for those concerts and videos, but what did they look like before all the makeup artists and hairstylists were there to take care of them? Check out these Pop Stars Yearbook Photos!

???

Such a cute little kid, right? Well, the looks continued for this pop star and she aged very well. Who would have thought that that toothless girl would go on to be a pop diva?

That would be Beyoncé. Wendy Williams may have said that Beyoncé talks like she has a fifth grade education, but with looks and a voice like hers, does it matter how well she speaks? This lady is fierce and has the money and man and adorable daughter to prove it!

???

The hair was big and flowing for this diva. Such an adorable little girl as well, but I guess that is why most of these stars made the list right? You gotta have the looks to break into the business and this girl is definitely rocking that popped collar!

Alicia Keys

That would be Alicia Keys. No popped collar here, but this girl is definitely on fire. Alicia has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide and was named one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time by VH1 in 2010. She is an R&B star and is still going strong ten years after her first album was released.

I look at this picture and think to myself, is this one of the girls from Full House? She totally looks like the eldest daughter on the hit TV show, but no, this diva took to the stage to entertain us and not the TV screens.

Fergie

That would be Fergie. She has had success with The Black Eyed Peas and a solo career, which produced an album with five singles to make the Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 and three of them took the number one spot. She has sold millions of albums and is married to Josh Duhamel, so life couldn't get any better for that cheerleader!

???

She looked so sweet and innocent back in the day. She may live on the wild side now, but she is still young and allowed to do that, but who is this pop star rocking that innocent smile?

Rihanna

That would be Rihanna. She may have everyone going crazy with her on-again relationship with Chris Brown, but Rihanna knows how to sing and fill a stadium, so don't expect her to go anywhere anytime soon. She puts out an album every fall it seems, so more power to her!

???

Does that picture look like someone that would turn into a pop star? Doubtful, but it did happen. That dorky looking girl went on to sell millions of records, but who is it?

Avril Lavigne

That would be Avril Lavigne. She is still rocking the dorky look, but it works for her now. She broke onto the music scene in 2002 at the age of 17. She came to us from Canada and has since had number one songs and sold over 34 million albums worldwide. Not bad for a dorky girl, huh?

???

Kind of an obvious one, but she clearly had not found out about the benefits of joining Weight Watchers yet. She was proud of graduating and that tassel and she is rocking those curls.

Jennifer Hudson

That would be Jennifer Hudson. Jennifer found Weight Watchers and is now working it with her skinnier body. She may have been voted off American Idol, but she has had huge successes since her departure. She has won a Grammy, an Oscar for her role in Dreamgirls and won many roles in movies and TV. She will be a guest this season on the NBC show Smash.

???

Do you think this pop diva was a product of the late '80s and early '90s? That was a time when the bigger the hair was the cooler you looked. She was rocking that huge hair and bangs for her yearbook photo, but who is it?

Mariah Carey

That would be Mariah Carey, of course. This pop diva has sold 63.5 million albums worldwide and was ranked #2 by VH1 on the 100 Greatest Women in Music list. She has had a lot of ups and downs with her career, but this diva always comes out on top. She has her 14th studio album set to be released in March 2013 and will be a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol.

    Alicia had a nose job? At least she got it as a teen

    Fergie was indeed on TV in the 80s, on Kids Incorporated, back when she was known by her full name: Stacey Ferguson.
