You’ll barely recognize Katy Perry in this epic throwback pic of her 13-year-old self

We love a good #tbt pic, no matter what day of the week it is. Katy Perry shared an awkward throwback picture on Instagram yesterday, and we think we can all relate to it. Because who wasn’t awkward when they a teenager? It’s always fun to see pics of pop stars before they became famous. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that they ever looked anything but glamorous.

What a difference 20 years can make!

The photo shows the Swish Swish singer at age 13 with blond hair and a very ’90s outfit. Perry’s look has obviously changed many times, but sometimes it’s fun to look back and see how far you’ve come.

She’s certainly not a wannabe pop-star now.

Whether you used to dye your hair bright red and crimp it (maybe speaking from personal experience?), we all thought what we were wearing and doing to our hair was cool. So it may seem awkward now, but we rocked it then, and we should be proud of it now! Even if it is absolutely hilarious.

If celebs like Katy Perry can embrace their awkward teenage years, we can too.

We might not be brave enough to post pictures of ourselves to millions of people, but they’re definitely fun to share with friends. We’re hoping that Katy and other celebrities keep sharing more throwback pics, because we can’t get enough of seeing our favorite singers and actors before they were famous.
