11 Riveting Teen People Covers That Immortalized 2004

A look back to 10 years ago when we all still cared about Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s marriage, and Josh Hartnett’s career.

1. December 2003/January 2004: Clay Aiken opened up about “girls” and “going all the way.”

Plus, gross, we found out what John Mayer’s make-out music is. I bet he put “Your Body Is A Wonderland” on that playlist.

2. February: We finally found out what REALLY turned Orlando Bloom on! My guess: Making money from staring in blockbuster franchises.

Plus, we learned 205 things we needed to know about guys!

3. March: Nick and Jessica let us in on what the cameras couldn’t show us. Was it their divorce?

Plus, we apparently still cared about B2K and Simple Plan.

4. April: Julia Stiles taught us about flirting or something.

Plus, “sexy new jeans,” which I am sure just meant an even lower rise and more flared.

5. May: Usher opened up about his heartache (aka his break-up with Chilli from TLC).

Whom he, for the record, never cheated on.

Also, we wondered how Friends would end!!! Spoiler alert: Rachel got off the plane.

6. June/July: The Olsen twins promoted their final cinematic masterpiece, New York Minute.

Plus, Usher, Jessica Simpson, Justin Timberlake, and Josh Hartnett were the hottest stars under 25!

7. August: Kirsten Dunst confessed to something and I don’t think it was that she was dating Jake Gyllenhaal.

8. September: Chad Michael Murray told us a secret. I think it was that we’d forget about him in 10 years.

9. October: Somehow Orlando Bloom was the No. 1 sexiest guy ever! Yeah, um, OK 2004.

Plus, we got the scoop on Josh Hartnett, ‘cause remember, we cared about him then.

10. November: Hilary Duff opened up on her feuds (aka she threw shade at Lindsay Lohan).

Plus, Good Charlotte let us read their diary about the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

11. December/January 2005: The cast of The O.C. brought the drama when they talked about all those nasty rumors (aka how nobody liked Mischa Barton).
