All of the grown up pop stars on this list have always been talented, and they’ve all always been good-looking. What they haven’t always been is as sexy and stylish as they are now.
Justin Timberlake was always the cute one in *NSYNC, but people also forget that he was a tiny bit derpy, too. Now, it’s nothing but sexy suits and ties for the singer, but in his teens, he was all about silly faces and peroxide curls. Sure, Rihanna is now one smoking hot provocateur, but when she launched her career, she was still having trouble getting her angles down. And while Drake has always been devastatingly handsome, he did start out as a teen star on Degrassi. We’re not holding it against him, but we do want to thank him for graduating from goofy grins to stone cold smoldering.
These pop music megastars didn’t just grow up to be older and wiser–they got way hotter.
