Earlier this week we reported a bizarre fan theory that saw Taylor Swift get accused of “100% being” a boy from Exeter off the back of her, ahem, rather quirky rediscovered Myspace photo. However, Taylor is far from being the only star to have embarrassing old social media photos buried deep in the Internet archives – here are a few more celebs who may wish that they’d kept those pesky profiles private before they hit the big time.
The photo that kickstarted it all – in this throwback pic of a pre-fame Taylor the star is clearly experimenting with a much more “emo” look. Badly dyed hair and thick liquid eyeliner? Hey, we’ve all been there.
Now universally acknowledged as one of the hottest and coolest men on the planet, Harry looks utterly adorable in his cute Myspace pics, posing alongside his older sister, Gemma, here.
Ooft, a fan of a good filter even in his childhood, Liam looks like butter wouldn’t melt in this old Myspace pic – just a year or so later he met his now-girlfriend, Cheryl, for the first ever time. What are the chances, eh?
Otherwise known as ‘Princess Kimberley’, Kim clearly put a lot of work into her old Myspace profile so it’s no surprise that she is now the social media Queen of the celeb world. Listing her hero as her late father, Robert Kardashian, we particularly love the star’s tagline of: “I’m a PRINCESS and you’re not, so there!”
Proving how wacky-with-a-capital-W she is, Katy poses alongside a pal and a couple of cans of Red Bull in this fantastic throwback. Who else reckons that all of that sugar made the two Myspace Queens act “OMG SO RANDOM :3” ?
Fortunately for her, Kendall had the foresight to make her Myspace profile ‘private’. Unfortunately for her, we can still see that the Victoria’s Secret supermodel selected the rather interesting URL of ‘horsegirl’ for her page. Right-o.
If you’re wondering, Kylie isn’t a ‘horsegirl’ but she is… Erm.. A lolly pop? These Jenner sisters sound like they were a hoot in their childhood.
Before he was the smooth-as-silk, sexy-as-sin crooner that we know and love today, Zayn was just your average awkward teenage boy who loved to pose with his Maccy D’s, bless ‘im.
Louis was more of a Bebo man instead of Myspace and we have to admit, we were spoilt for choice when it came to choosing the best throwback pic to post. However, this one of a young Lou posing seductively by a tree eventually got our vote.
Niall was also a fan of Bebo over Myspace and he looks the definition of ‘baby-faced’ in this cutsie old profile pic. Although, to be fair, not much has changed, has it?
Tom Hardy. Yes, Hollywood heart-throb, bad boy, and all round sex god, Tom Hardy. We have no words…
…But we do have another picture. Hubba hubba.
