13 Riveting Teen People Covers That Immortalized 2002
It was the peak of Josh Hartnett's career!
December 2001/January 2002: Ja Rule, Craig David, Nelly Furtado, and Alicia Keys posed for the "What's Next!" cover (aka the artists that you put on your mix CD in 2001).
February 2002: By the looks of this headline, Josh Hartnett was apparently a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma!
March 2002: Britney was just 20 years old and talking about her epic cinematic masterpiece, Crossroads.
April 2002: Pink got the "party started" by talking about being bad and Britney Spears (hopefully she mentioned Crossroads).
May 2002: Friends was forever, or until it went off the air two years later.
June 2002: Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman had more chemistry on this cover than they did in Attack of the Clones.
July 2002: Ashanti got us in a summer mood with her single "Happy," while Jay Z (along with Beyoncé) had us singing along to "'03 Bonnie & Clyde."
August 2002: Mandy Moore was the best-dressed celebrity of the year (I wonder if she rocked peasant tops with low-rise flared jeans?).
Fall Fashion Issue: Gwen Stefani couldn't decide whether she was hot or cold.
September 2002: Josh Hartnett and his nipples landed on the cover, again (and thank God, 'cause I was beginning to worry that Teen People was ignoring him a bit too much).
October 2002: Eminem promoted his movie, 8 Mile, by looking pained at having to appear on the cover.
November 2002: Jack and Kelly Osbourne were just wrapping up their first season of The Osbournes.
December 2002/ January 2003: Justin Timberlake went solo and wondered if he would ever find true love.
