This twitter user decided it was time to let the grays grow, and honestly what a difference! This is 33 to 43 and she is embracing the change that has come with the decade proudly.
In 2009 Justin Beiber was at the height of his young boy years. 10 years later, he’s hit puberty and a couple rough patches in his life, but he’s still making music and living his best life. I wonder if 15 year old Beiber ever dreamed of marrying a super model, like his now wife Hailey Baldwin?
Nothing shows more change than a before and after picture. From ages 22 to 32, Andrew Gray lost nearly 150 pounds in the past decade. Just from his smile alone, you can tell that he’s practically a whole new person.
Twitter user @KeannaDawnn has a lot to proud of this decade. The first picture from 2009 was taken at during a visitation while in foster care. Now, she’s happy and healthy and making a way for herself at 19 years old.
Talk about a glow up. We all had those awkward years, our pre-teen years before we knew how to use make-up, when we didn’t know what to wear, and everyone had braces. No one figured that out faster than Kylie Jenner, who in a short 10 years became a make-up mogul- and a mother.
Chris Gidden wasn’t having a great year in 2009. He was an alcoholic, fighting a tough battle with depression, and had an undetected thyroid tumor. He fought a lot of battles over the past 10 years but can happily say he’s now sober, has no tumor, is successfully managing his depression, and now works in his dream field of work helping the marginalized but fighting injustice.
A lot has changed for Miley in the past 10 years, especially since in 2009 she was still Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel. Though she hasn’t been doing a whole lot as of late, in the past 10 years she’s strayed from Disney, made her own music, married Liam Hemsworth, and also divorced Liam Hemsworth. Lets hope the new decade starts better than the last ended.
This is more of a physical transformation. Though twitter user @a_heretic_now claims to be just as gay as he was in 2009, he’s lost the glasses, got a sharper jawline, grew out his hair and a little bit of stubble making his decade challenge an impressive one.
Lady Gag has always been and will always be a showman, and the last 10 years have proved it. With 5 albums made in 10 years, spanning the meat dress year to her success with A Star is Born she has been crushing the decade. Don’t forget to include her countless awards, a duet with Tony Bennett and a Super Bowl halftime performance.
2009 Cal looks pretty happy, but not quite like 2019 Cal. After coming out of the closet, they’re living their life to the fullest and smiling even wider now, living their truth.
Twitter user Emma has a few things to be proud of this decade. One is finding happiness with her new husband. Another is investing in some glasses. And lastly just becoming more comfortable in front of a camera.
2009 Rihanna was still putting out hits, but the super star changed her focus to building her makeup line. Fenty Beauty debuted in 2017 and has been growing in popularity ever since. The brand is one of the most inclusive makeup lines, boasting over 40 shades of foundation for all types of skin and pushing the boundaries on gender norms.
Nothing is better than looking back after 10 years and seeing a positive physical change. Overcoming weight loss and committing to being healthy is a long journey and these people should be proud.
Kim Kardashian has been an icon for the last 10 years. Between the show, her father transitioning, her marriage to Kanye West and their children, this woman has a lot to look back on. More importantly she has a lot to look forward to in the coming decade.
In the past 10 years twitter user @skyledavis lost more than 50 pounds, brought 2 more kids into his family, added a significant amount of joy, and added a few more gray hairs (thanks to those kids). Nothing beats becoming a happier healthier person.
From Disney to a new music career. Ariana was the supporting actress in a Disney Show about talented artistic students, and though the focus of the show was a singer that wasn’t her, in the past 10 years Ariana has successfully broken out of her Disney shell.
Like the twitter post, there’s almost no need for a caption here. Not only did Josie transition, but she also gained confidence, happiness, and respect. It may have taken 10 years in the making, but it was worth it.
In 2009 Bella was just entering the Disney scene, and 10 years later things could not be more different. On top of a few movies and small acting roles after her TV show on Disney, Bella has since become a successful porn director.
This 10 year glow up would make the 14 year old in the first photo proud. Anna McAree is clearly living life to the fullest, becoming the young proffesional she always aspired to be.
“I’ve got less hair, more scars, and a new walking stick. The start and end of the decade.” writes Cath Sheard on Twitter. Her changes are simple, yet noticeable, small, but definitely something to be proud of.
Another Disney star breaking the mold. This Wizards of Waverly Place star has been busy making music and producing Netflix shows in the last decade. And don’t forget that brief relationship with Juston Beiber…
It’s crazy what a difference a little time in the gym makes. Tiv has made some serious changes over the past 10 years and it shows. Not to mention the difference in growing out your hair makes.
Ten years may have come and gone, but you would’t be able to tell that based on Jennifer Lopez’s looks. The pop star turned 50 this year, but that isn’t stopping her from her dancing/music/acting career and finding love with Yankees baseball player A-Rod.
Unlike the common weight loss photo, some changes go the other way. “The birds are a nice accessory, but I really just got fat and gray.” says Twitter user Josh. As long as your still happy and healthy, it doesn’t matter what changes were made, just that you changed.
From breaking up to making up, the Jonas Brothers did both in this decade. Nothing shows fan loyalty like a band disappearing for 5 years, then coming back to the same screaming fans like no time had passed at all. The only difference being, their wives tagging along for the tour.
A perfect example of the differences only a few changes can make. Twitter user ‘not kalani’ posted these two pics showing that she has made significant changes since 2009.
This pop star had one rough, roller coaster of a decade. It started out strong with the release her hit song “Tik Tok” followed by a few other summer anthems, but a few years later was bogged down with lawsuits and court cases involving her producer Dr. Luke and an abuse scandal. However, she is back on her feet, making music, and even making an appearance at the American Music awards his year to perform a new track.
Nothing like ending the decade as you truly are. Faith Naff posted on twitter her transformation from the man she was in 2009 to the woman she is now. Though it definitely was a journey, there is clear confidence in her eyes ready to take on the next decade.
Besides going platinum blonde and growing a beard, this high school musical star has continued a steady acting career and held up his good looks.
Starting 2009 off reaping the benefits of his one of his earlier hits “Heartless, by the end of the decade Kanye has put out a Gospel album and possibly become a minister- and has also done just about everything in between. If we were to look solely at his actions over the past 10 years, you would think that 2009 Kanye and 2019 Kanye are two totally different people.
As time passes, so do the years on our face, this twitter user though looks to have aged twenty years in only 10. This can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on which way you look at it. Always view the glass half full.
Taylor Swift was recently awarded the artist of the decade at the 2019 American Music Awards, and if that doesn’t tell you how great the last 10 years have been to her, than I don’t know what will. Numerous awards, record breaking music, and a movie coming out at Christmas. What can’t this woman do?
Hey, we’ve all had those awkward teen/preteen years before we knew how to use makeup and wear the right clothes. It’s what everyone goes through so we’re not allowed to judge. But you don’t appreciate how far you’ve come until you’ve compared them side by side.
Kardashian number three has been making a lot of changes this decade. Though her marriage to Lamar Odom didn’t quite last the decade, she has made a name for herself through her weight loss and modeling career.
This change is so drastic you can’t even tell it’s the same kid! It’s amazing what hitting puberty can do to you.
Drake has become more and more popular throughout the decade with every album that he puts out. And lets not forget about those dance moves he showed off in “Hotline Bling” that had everyone laughing and dancing all summer.
Mina goes from 16 to 26 in this decade and it shows. According to her twitter she moved away from home and is now chasing her dreams in a new city. Same freckles, little paler, same Mina.
Demi has had a rough decade. The former Disney star may look better than ever, but it took a long time to get there. From checking into rehab, to failing at staying sober, the star had a rocky couple of years. But after working on herself, she still managed to put out great music and maintain a strong relationship with her fans.
Twitter user Ben Beechey is proud of gaining a wife, a beard, and a little weight this decade. He claims he still looks just as young under the beard
At the start of 2010 twitter user Ru admitted to being a depressed addict, but you could never tell. Now in 2019, he’s clean and happy, with a kick ass new hairstyle.
Like her sister Kylie, Kendall went through some serious changes over the past 10 years. At 12 years old, growing up in the spotlight with her sisters was difficult, but Kendall has become a successful model and made a name for herself separate from that of her sisters.
I imagine twitter user Merika here’s the phrase “You haven’t changed a bit!” an awful lot from her family and friends. Despite aging 10 years she still looks pretty much the same, but definitely more grown up.
Another gret before and after photo to show that hard work pays off. In 2009 Jose was overweight, and now after 10 years he’s looking good and still losing weight.
What seems like just a teenager in the first picture, has grown into the 32 year-old actor made famous by becoming a part of the Rocky franchise. After that he gained more success by joining the Marvel universe as the Black Panther’s brother Killmonger, and now that he’s so well known, it’s only up from here.
In 2009 twitter user keeks was uncomfortable in their femininity. At 14 its easy to feel out of place especially when you know you’re different. Fast forward to 2019, and keeks is owning their non-binary status and already more comfortable in their own skin.
