Amber rose is unrecognizable in this cheesy middle school pic

Amber Rose may be all about “how to be a bad bitch” these days, but once upon a time, she was just a girl. Standing in front of a photographer. Taking an all-too-normal cheesy school portrait (stars: they’re just like us!).

The 32-year-old model proudly shared her middle school photo with her followers on Thursday, writing, “#TBT Muva at 12  Sidebar…. I was 5’9 .”

That curly, chin-length hair! That patriotic tee! That toothy grin! Clearly, this was long before Amber discovered her fetish for sunglasses or embraced a buzzed ‘do — back when “Wiz” was probably just a “Wizard of Oz” reference and the only “G.O.A.T” talk she was interested in revolved not around Kanye, but around the USA Olympic team.

This isn’t the first time Amber’s shared a precious #TBT memory — check out these other pics that prove something.

Here’s an epic shot of Amber sporting some unfortunate straight bangs, a pink turtleneck, and ‘80s-inspired frames.

Here’s another one of 12-year-old Amber, proving just how tall she stood as a preteen.

By high school, she had discovered makeup and embraced the #GlamLife.

And at 18, she chopped off her hair and started resembling the Amber we know and love today.
