We remembered where our favorite pop singers started and what they have become now.
Even those who are not interested in her work know the story of Britney Spears' lingering depression. Divorce from cheating gigolo Kevin Federline in 2006, shaving the head, rehab treatment, fights with the paparazzi, deprivation of parental rights, bad habits - all this became the reason that Britney was scrapped. Today, the blonde worries fans no less: many see hidden messages in her posts on Instagram - they say Spears is trying to escape from the tyrant father.
Christina started out as innocent Britney Spears' main rival - a blonde schoolgirl in flared jeans and a crop top. Later, she changed dozens of looks, dyed her hair in all possible colors and changed latex costumes for diva dresses. But the singer is in no hurry to dwell on one thing: Christina is still happy to experiment with style (and weight, by the way).
Katy Perry and other stars who turned from best friends into bitter enemies
Katy Perry and Taylor Swift were inseparable until 2014 - the media even joked that it was time for them to officially register the relationship. But at one point everything changed. Both girls are silent about the reasons. “She did something terrible. It wasn't even about the guy - it was about the business! Then I realized that we are real enemies, "Swift said. In May 2017, Perry stated, “To be honest, she was the one who started the fight. And it’s time for her to end it. I tried to talk to her, but she did not make contact."
Rihanna started out as a classic r'n'b babe who was taken under the wing of Jay Z in 2005. After two successful albums, Jay sensed the potential of his Barbados treasure and decided to raise the bar. In 2007, Rihanna does a cheeky bob, arms herself with an umbrella and declares: Good Girl Gone Bad. And then we know the story: an unambiguous video of Rude Boy, explicit fantasies of pleasure through pain in the S&M song, the composition Birthday Cake, dedicated to casual sex at a party, and, of course, the 2013 video Pour It Up, which approved Ri in the status of a riot and provocateur. Talking about this in 2021, we brush away a stingy tear, remembering that the last time Rihanna delighted us with a new album was five years ago!
The star of the teenage musical Hannah Montana on Disney Channel is another example of the incredible transformation of a clever girl into a thug. Only unlike Rihanna, Miley decided not to move gradually, but to jump right off the bat, so it's easy to determine the point of no return: on June 19, 2013, the video We Can't Stop was released. In the frame - red lipstick, sandwiches with dollars, a crazy party, twerk, a riot of colors and youth, a pool and smoke between her legs … Before the revolution in Miley's world there were a couple of months: in September of the same year, the cult video Wrecking Ball was released. A few months later, the baby is riding a giant hot dog on stage as part of the Bangerz tour, and the parents of young Hannah Montana fans will ask to ban the Cyrus show.
In 1998, 15-year-old Alsou, appearing in the image of Lolita in the video "Winter Dream", became the number 1 star for all Russian schoolgirls. Songs about first love, spring and youth were not at all as innocent as it might seem at first glance, and Alsou herself even starred in underwear for a men's edition. Now hints and explicit filming are in the past. In 2006, the young singer Alsou became the wife of the banker Yan Abramov, with whom she is now raising daughters Safina and Mikella, as well as her son Raphael. Dedicating herself to her husband and children, Alsou stopped performing for a while, but then returned and continues to delight fans with her creativity.
The soloist of the Demo group with the sun in her hands turned into a crazy mommy.After Zvereva gave birth to her third child, the son of Leo, she shared with fans a very intimate moment of her motherhood: she told what makes a smoothie with her own placenta: “My magic smoothie this week. I drink twice a day. " In addition to drinking the placenta and raising children, of whom she already has four, Sasha is developing her blog on Instagram.
Avril Lavigne's debut album Let Go was released in 2002: the young Canadian sang about boys, love and crazy antics and at the same time did not look like a squad of pop stars with perhydrous hair and revealing outfits. Avril has repeatedly admitted that she does not want to be like everyone else, and emphasized this with ties and rough bracelets: in the press she was dubbed "the princess of pop punk", and fans called her "anti-Britney". Eyes outlined in black pencil, slightly curled or sleek long hair and an open smile became the main trump cards of the singer in the struggle for originality. Growing up, Avril did not settle down at all, on the contrary: she allowed herself a shaved temple, colored strands and bright eye makeup. Avril married Nickelback lead singer Chad Kruger in a black dress. True, now the artist increasingly chooses expensive looks and delicate styling.
Despite the birth of two children, MakSim is still in the form of a gentle and naive young lady who sings intricate songs about feelings of extraordinary power. “It's time for MakSim to get away from the image of a chorus girl, a kind of youngster, a graduate of the last grade of school. To do this, you need to stop wearing the atrocious mini. It's time to grow up, she is already a mother of two children. We need to look for both a new repertoire and a new image,”says fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev.
It seems that this "doll cat" has stopped time: since her first participation in the Pussycat Dolls, the singer has hardly changed, apart from the fact that Nicole has become more restrained in her choice of outfits.
Katy Perry's career began with a song about her experience of kissing a girl. Yes, let's face it, Kat was a little late with the sexual revolution: eight years before the release of the single I Kissed a Girl, the girls from Tatu had already told and shown everything for a long time. But Katie took it differently: with spontaneity and boundless self-irony. That there are only videos of Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) and Birthday, where the singer reincarnated as an elderly stripper, Jewish showman, alcoholic clown, loser trainer and would-be princess. In such images, Perry appeared on real birthdays of the most ordinary people, making every effort to ruin the holiday.
