We all have celebrities who we look up to or whose work we enjoy. This includes musicians, movie stars, athletes, and so on. If we saw them out in public, we would probably notice them instantly. However, would we be able to tell it’s them if we saw their childhood photos? These are 15 celebrity childhood photos you probably won’t recognize.
Doesn’t Miley Cyrus look almost unrecognizable here? This was her many years before she was swinging on a wrecking ball and scaring the conservatives. Even back then, she was photogenic. Miley as a kid looks like one of those children you see on Sesame Street appearing with Elmo, Big Bird, or the Cookie Monster. This picture is from a time shortly before she made her TV debut. Who knew back then that Miley would become the star she is today? Her family probably did.
Nicki Minaj was born Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty in Trinidad in 1982. This is a picture of Nicki before she became a star. Upon seeing this picture, Minaj said that there wasn’t much discipline in her life in that era. She didn’t come from a very strict household and sometimes wish she had. However, in this picture, she looks like someone who scores all A’s at school and has to be home before a specific time. However, this young version of Nicki Minaj probably knew that she would make it big in the music industry.
Before the world knew her as Cardi B, she was Belcarlis Marlenis Almanzar. The name is quite a mouthful. She was born in Washington Heights in 1992 to a Dominican father and Trinidadian and Spanish mother. Most of you will probably agree that she looks adorable in this childhood photo of hers. The picture might be cute, but it wasn’t long after this that the famous rapper would get involved with violent gangs. In the picture, though, she looks like someone just told her that her dream of becoming a female rap icon would come true.
