19 Pictures Of Celebs At Their First VMAs Vs. Now That'll Actually Shock You


Posted on

1. Pink: 2000 vs. 2017

It's been nearly two decades since Pink came into our lives, and you know what? She's still a rock star, she's got her rock moves, and she STILL doesn't need you.

2. Katy Perry: 2008 vs. 2017

Nearly a decade ago, newcomer Katy Perry hit the VMA stage for the first time with her hit "I Kissed A Girl," and this year, she hosted the show. Swish swish, bish!


6. Lorde: 2014 vs. 2017

Lorde had the flu this year, which prevented her from actually singing during her performance, but it didn't stop her from wowing us on the red carpet (in a not-black dress!).

7. Demi Lovato: 2008 vs. 2017

Demi's come a long way since her days on the Disney Channel. This year, she rocked "Sorry Not Sorry" at the Palms in Las Vegas and gave us the unapologetic anthem we didn't know we needed.


9. Amber Rose: 2009 vs. 2017

In 2009, she showed up to the VMAs with Kanye; this year, it was 21 Savage on her arm. One thing that hasn't changed: the fact that Amber Rose is an absolute goddess.


13. Kendrick Lamar: 2013 vs. 2017

Kendrick kicked off the 2017 show with a fiery, show-stopping medley of "DNA" and "Humble," arguably the best performance of the night.

16. Jack Antonoff: 2012 vs. 2017

In 2012, Jack was all about FUN, but in 2017, he's solo and churning out mega-hits for artists like Lorde and Taylor Swift. (But he's still wearing the same glasses.)

19. Miley Cyrus: 2008 vs. 2017

Miley may not have walked the red carpet this year, but she lit up the stage with a performance of "Younger Now." It seems like it was only yesterday that she was twerking on stage with Robin Thicke.
