Go Back In Time With These Early 2000s Teen Magazine Scans

Lip gloss ads, quizzes and celeb gossip.

Before One Direction and YouTube, teen life consisted of flip phones, TRL, Jesse McCartney, and pop magazines.

Teens of the early 2000s were equally as fanatical and thirsty for the celeb truth tea as they are now, but instead of getting the deetz instantaneously on social media, content in teen magazines contained everything that needed to be known about young Hollywood faves.

With the infinitely growing fabulosity of the internet, magazines have shifted towards digital media -- incorporating social networks like Instagram and Facebook into their brands. Teens today can take a break from scrolling through their Vine and Twitter accounts to scan the pages of a magazine, getting massive doses of pop culture daily.

Let's go back in time and take a peek at some of the old, teen magazine greatness that teens of the early-2000s devoured:
