Cardi B, Charlie Puth And More Take On The 10 Year Challenge

Tue, January, 15 by Angela McLean

Have you seen a rush of throwback pics on your social media feed? You’re not alone—the 10 Year Challenge is the latest viral trend taking over the Internet and it has everyone, including our favourite celebrities, in a permanent #TBT mode.

Participants are encouraged to post a photo or video that gives a peek into who they were way back when—anything from an embarrassing clip to a pre-glow up pose. Just like us, the stars have done their fair share of growing up and it’s all been caught on camera. Take a trip down memory lane and check out these celeb then-and-nows.


Cardi B Is A Secret Lady Gaga Stan

In this unseen video, rap’s it-girl Cardi B does her best Mother Monster moves while performing Lady Gaga’s hit “Bad Romance” at a high-school talent show. Now a multi-platinum international artist, Cardi proves that even the smallest stage can help launch the biggest star.

Pink Is Her Authentic Self

Get yourself a woman who can do both. “Beautiful Trauma” artist Pink shares a red carpet shot from the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards as her throwback photo, proving she has mastered the glam. Recently, she’s opted for more laid-back looks to reflect the rawness of her music and to promote having comfort in your skin. She will forever be a badass and a beauty.

Nicki Minaj Gives Off Barbie Vibes

Sporting cut-outs and mesh, Nicki joins the 10 Year Challenge and displays her transformation in this Insta collage. She slays in both and we’re happy to see she hasn’t lost her bold confidence or signature rocker-chic look.

Snooki Owns Motherhood

Snooki sure has come a long way from her days on the Jersey Shore. The now mom-of-two shares a sweet snap with son Lorenzo and daughter Giovanna next to a rather infamous capture of the reality star drunkenly screaming, “Where’s the beach?!” The fun and games may have taken a step back, but motherhood looks great on her.

Dua Lipa Is A Young Pop Princess

Even as a teen, “IDGAF” songstress Dua Lipa impressed her classmates with her vocal chops. In the throwback spirit, she shares this short clip of a young Dua covering the Alicia Keys classic “No One.” Fingers crossed we get an updated version this year.

Charlie Puth Is Basically Chase from Zoey 101

Charlie Puth’s 10 Year Challenge revealed his resemblance to an iconic character from our youth, Chase from Zoey 101. Perhaps he would be the perfect fit for a reboot?

Carly Rae Jepsen Is The Queen Of Squats

“Finding new ways to squat since 2009 baby,” jokes Carly Rae Jepsen. First for her Curiosity EP photoshoot and again for her 2018 single “Party for One,” here’s to more squatting in 2019.

Pharrell Is Forever 21

We’re not sure how, but Pharrell Williams has single-handedly destroyed aging. The 45-year-old hit maker is living his best life and appears to be getting younger with time (if he could give us his secrets, that would be great). He didn’t even have to participate in the 10 Year Challenge himself to be crowned winner—we did that for him.
