Though “MTV2 Presents: When I Was 17” is coming to a close this Sunday, we can still look back on all of the cool info we’ve learned about our favorite stars’ teen years. And now that you’re all acquainted with them, picture this: It’s Friday afternoon during your senior year, and school’s finally out. Who would be your first pick to hit up the
club arcade with?
This season’s celebs are a pretty eclectic crew, so we’ve grouped them into high school cliques to help you decide.
It’s no surprise that the majority of our successful stars made this category. First up, he may have gotten his car stolen, but bigger and better things happened when Big Sean performed for Kanye West at 17. Chrissy Teigen also got her start at 17 by landing her first, real modeling gig. Likewise, artists Rita Ora and Wiz Khalifa focused on fine-tuning their musical talent. And finally, whether he was crooning or cutting hair, Trey Songz always made sure to perfect his craft.
More focused on making passes at girls than passing a test, these teens were always coming up with ways to impress the ladies. Despite a bad ’do, Drake says he still made chicks swoon, while Lil Duval claimed he drove the girls wild as king of the “Whoomp!” Similarly, MGK’s Soulja Boy cover helped him score big with girls of all shapes and sizes, and Tech N9ne admitted to having not one, not two, but THREE girlfriends back in the day.
These rebellious babes clearly believed rules were made to be broken. Chanel West Coast committed a naughty prank on a nagging neighbor, while a teenage Trina skipped school, which almost landed her in the slammer!
