Our favourite celebrity Throwback Thursday photos

Since the photo of Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus during the 2009 Grammys resurfaced, we were inspired to dig a little and uncover some other Throwback Thursday gems.

Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus

Aw. . . Remember when Miley Cyrus was not known for grinding a foam finger and Taylor Swift didn’t have 3 billion breakup songs?

Celebrity stylist Johnny Wujek took us to the past, with this adorable entry for #ThrowbackThursday on Instagram yesterday. The photo was taken at the Grammys back in 2009, when both singers mere teenagers.

“#tbt Grammys backstage. When they were babies. @mileycyrus@taylorswift#blackgowns,” read the caption on the snapshot.

Whoa! Did Lorde diss Taylor Swift? >>

Just to remind you: at the time, 17-year-old Cyrus was still Hannah Montana and had only recently released her second album, Breakout. Swift was 19 years old and had only two records under her belt. Boy, things have changed!

Well, while we’re on topic and still nostalgic, let’s check out some of our other favourite Throwback Thursday photos of the famous beautiful people:

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian

Kim Kardashian shared this adorable shot of her and sister, Kourtney, back when they were little babies, before all the drama, the TV fame and the birth of their very own babies. Just look at them!



This is Beyoncé from the pre-Jay Z era, rocking her curly mane and gorgeousness. Some people argue that her Destiny’s Child days were her best, but we’re not so sure. It’s hard to imagine Beyoncé being any other way now.

Jessica Alba

Look at her! Just look at her! Jessica Alba is so adorable we want to carry her around in our little pocket. The actress looks so sweet with her father and brother, we can’t believe Alba has two kids of her own now!

Ellen DeGeneres

OK, so it’s not a real Throwback Thursday photo, but Ellen sure did a great job with Photoshop here. It’s just a good laugh, although we kind of wish this was a real yearbook photo. That hair!

We don’t know how old Ludacris is in this photo, but we’re going to guess that he’s underage and the contents of the paper bag are probably not apple juice! While we do not condone underage drinking—or any drinking out of a paper bag (get a glass, come on!)—we think the rapper’s facial expression is incredible. We may have to frame this.

Busy Philipps

We must admit that this looks very similar to Ellen DeGeneres’ fake school photo. We just don’t know what we love the most about this picture, the vacant but blissful facial expression, the hair, the purple arrow blatantly pointing to the culprit of this Throwback Thursday. . . It’s all very good. This is why we love Busy Philipps.
