Remember the year 2000? We were all wearing a lot of silvery blue and still coming down from that whole Y2K scare. We were also in the midst of the Golden Age of Disney pop. In between episodes of So Weird and The Famous Jett Jackson, Disney would play music videos from wholesome pop artists and one of those groups was Norwegian girl duo M2M.

M2M was comprised of earnest brunette Marion Raven and pixie-like blonde Marit Larsen. They sang about love and loss in a tween-friendly way, with moderate hits like “Mirror Mirror” and “Don’t Say You Love Me.”

They did things like have birds sit adorably on their heads in music videos.

They were adorable and you probably loved them (or at least liked them) and then totally forgot about them — until now.

So where are they today? M2M broke up in the early 2000s (presumably sometime between the release of their greatest hits — yes, greatest hits — album in 2003 and Marion Raven’s solo record in 2005), but both have been steadily working as solo artists ever since.

Raven has kept busy releasing solo albums, writing for other mainstream artists (like Pixie Lott), and keeping her Disney connection alive as Rapunzel in the Norwegian version of Tangled. Also, she’s still ROCKING leather pants, so there’s that.

Larsen grew up to look like a perfect indie darling and has continued to chart in Norway throughout her career, which is pretty awesome.

Now, if anyone needs me, I’ll be blasting “Mirror Mirror” and giving myself an early-aughts makeover for the rest of the day.
