From the Kardashians to Adele: 19 photos of celebrities before they were famous.

When you think about it, life was very different before social media.

In fact, just over a decade ago, it wasn’t possible to wake up and immediately see what your favourite celebrity was eating for breakfast.

Thanks to social media – and particularly Instagram – we’re now able to see a side of celebrities that we’ve never really been privy to.

Listen to the latest episode of Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast, The Spill, below. Post continues after podcast.

We see snippets of their home lives, we see their relationships behind the scenes, and sometimes, we even get a glimpse at some throwback photos.

From awkward high school photos to old-school teenage selfies, we decided to round up some of the best celebrity throwback photos that have been shared on Instagram.

In some of these photos, the celebrities are just about to make it big. But in others, the photos were taken years and years before they even landed their first gig.

So, from Kim Kardashian to Adele, here are 19 photos of celebrities before they were famous.
