VMA Nominees & Presenters: Before They Were Famous (PHOTOS)


This weekend is going to be one of the biggest, grandest and wildest celebrations the music business will see all year as the MTV Video Music Awards will kick off on Sunday -- so why not take a little trip back in time to check out what this year's nominees (and a few presenters) were like back during their school days?

Celebuzz has compiled yearbook and childhood photos from some of the year's biggest names -- everyone from Katy Perry to Kanye West to Lady Gaga -- and while they'll be sporting haute couture and arriving in limousines on Sunday, they were just like us during their high school days. Check them out as normal pimply teens!

Stay tuned to Celebuzz on Sunday, August 28 for over-the-top VMA coverage, as we'll be documenting the night's biggest fashion, performances and awards -- and join our Facebook and Twitter to stay in the know all the time!

    a joke really? a person who looks like a joke, or is a joke, wouldn't be named best rapper in the world, or one of the highest paying singers, he also acts too, so really your the joke for saying that.

    Gosh, who ever would have thought these cute little innocent faces would have turned out to be: posing for playboy, tattood from head to toe, dancing on stage with hardly any clothes on, cusses like a sailor in their lyrics, sex tapes...oh well, I guess that's what getting older is all about...HAHA....
