Taylor Swift is holding hands with Harry Styles of One Direction, Lindsay Lohan is partying down and stealing the sweatshirt of Max George from The Wanted. Boy bands are back in a big way, and they’re stealing some of the brightest lights in tinsel town! But then again, who could blame them with their cool hair and cool clothes and…other cool guys with cool hair and cool clothes around them. Gah, sometimes is really does pay to travel in groups!
Tay and Lilo are definitely not the first famous ladies who have been swayed by the charms of a boy-bander. And chances are high that they won’t be the last either! Sure, everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but remember that time he hooked up with Jenna Dewan? They obviously didn’t last, but we guess she made out ok in the end by marrying Channing Tatum and all. Before her punch-filled love triangle, Halle Berry stepped out with New Kid on the Block Danny Wood. Joe Jonas can count Camilla Belle and Taylor Swift among his suitors, whereas Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus preferred his brother Nick. Head down to the gallery below to see the boy-band hookups that you totally forgot about!

Ok, we know Tiffany‘s career is kind of a joke, but whoever wrapped her in gray toilet paper when nobody was looking is really, really mean. It must have taken all the restraint in the world for Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid co-star Deborah Gibson to not pull on the bottom and watch Tiffany spin around in total confusion. And we’ll just assume attendee Dustin Diamond didn’t get close enough to do it, because self-restraint is the last thing we associate with him.
What’s that, you say? “What other ghosts of the late ’80s popped up at the Syfy movie’s premiere”? Check out the gallery to see the current state of Taylor Dayne, Alan Thicke and—wubba wubba wubba—“Downtown” Julie Brown!
We never saw this coming: 80s pop star rivals Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will be starring in a SyFy Channel movie together. The name of said movie? Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid. After 1988 we really never thought we’d hear much from either of these two again, especially not a collaboration but this sounds too good (and by good we mean horrible!) to be true.
The Hollywood Reporter describes their roles, saying “Gibson will play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, where they grow to mega sizes. Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators.” So to be metaphorical, the snakes represent “Electric Youth” and the gator(oid)s represent “Could’ve Been” and it’ll be a battle to the death to find out which one was the real chart topper. (And for the sake of metaphor, the “charts” we speak of are represented by wetlands.) Sounds like a hit!

It’s hard to believe that Britney Spears, once America’s favorite exhibitionist virgin, is a 27-year-old mother of two. And though her career may still have the aroma of trainwreck, it could be worse—she could be a trainwreck no one cares about. Check out the gallery to see how Britney today compares to ten other former teen stars at 27. For every Drew Barrymore she might envy, there’s a Leif Garrett to envy her.
