8 Celebrities Who Used to Be Emo
The mid-late 2000s was a dark time for humanity — mostly because we were all emo af.
But don’t worry, it wasn’t just you, these 8 celebs were totally emo too.
Katy Perry was a teenage scene queen and while she was never hardcore emo, her old Myspace photos make it clear she was definitely browsing in Hot Topic back in the day.
And check out her cameo in this song you’ve totally forgotten about: “Take a Look At My Girlfriend.”
Before Taylor Swift became a shiny Kanye-hating person, she was a punk rock prom queen.
Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato
RIP to their hella emo Disney-fueled friendship.
This was actually a super controversial moment, but back in the day Miley and her BFF Mandy made a video mocking Selena Gomez and her BFF Demi Lovato — and Miley even copied their signature emo style.
Before Jeffree started making YouTube videos and fighting with burlesque dancers on social media, he was a Warped Tour staple.
Just check out this music video still:
Back in the day, Kelly was hitting the Manic Panic bottle — hard.
Then again, you’d be a little emo too if you grew up knowing your Dad once bit the head off of a bat.
When her sk8ter boi dumped her, Avril went through a v dark time.
Now, the only emo celeb we have is Kim Kardashian.
May the faux satanic gods of Sum 41 have mercy on our souls.
