Selena Gomez


Before she was a huge pop star and while she was filming Wizards Of Waverly Place, Gomez caught a big break with an old favorite. In 2009, she was invited by Forever The Sickest Kids to sing on a duet version of “Woah Oh (Me Vs. Everyone)” while sporting some serious side bangs. Apparently, FTSK’s lead singer Jonathan Cook and his family are still close to the Gomez family. Never forget that when you see her perform on stages like the American Music Awards, this is where she got her start.

Lil Uzi Vert


Before you question this one, remember that Uzi said last year that Hayley Williams of Paramore is his biggest musical inspiration. He shared a video of himself jamming out to Paramore’s “Ain’t It Fun” and said that Williams was the best of his generation. It’s hard to disagree with him.

Taylor Swift

You might be thinking that before Swift was pop, she was country, which is true. However, in 2008 when she released her album Fearless, she posted videos on Myspace which featured her favorite songs, one of them being “About A Girl” by the Academy Is. Around the same time, she was spotted in a video wearing a Boys Like Girls shirt on the MTV series Once Upon A Prom. She got Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional to perform “Hands Down” at her friend Abigail’s birthday, which Hayley Williams also attended. Speaking of Williams, Taylor Swift was also seen jamming out to “Misery Business” at a Paramore concert in 2009. Her latest album Reputation is definitely pretty angsty, so it seems like she’s channeling her 2008 roots.

Harry Styles

Apparently growing up, Harry Styles caught the scene style bug. His sister Gemma told Another Man magazine that Harry would steal her straightener and let his sister cut his hair, and that he has always worn skinny jeans. Even more recently, he’s been spotted sporting dark nail polish, officially making him the most scene of the former One Direction members.

Tyler Posey


This Teen Wolf actor has huge history in the pop-punk scene. He was in his own pop-punk band, Lost In Kostko, who broke up in 2013. He’s performed onstage with State Champs in 2015, he covered a blink-182 song with Neck Deep’s Fil Thorpe-Evans and even moderated a debate between 2016 APMAs hosts Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat from All Time Low. He’s a total scene kid through and through, and we couldn’t love it any more.
