This is how your favorite stars looked like in High School

Will Smith


Will Smith was a good student who often got in trouble and out of it by sheer charm, which earned him the nickname “Prince”. He started rapping at age 12, and later met a DJ at a party and formed the duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

Janis Joplin


Janis Joplin was a high school rebel, abandoning popular 1950s girls’ fashions and favoring men’s shirts, tights, and short skirts instead. She had a keen interest in the Beat Generation, that would later inspire both her lyrics and her lifestyle.
