Time Has Been Kind To These 9 Pop Sensations Of The ’90s

Can you believe it’s been nearly two decades since Posh, Scary, Sporty, Baby and Ginger first spiced up our lives? Although we may have swapped our CDs for mp3’s, these 9 pop phenomena of the ’90s still hold a very special place in our hearts — and they may look even better now than they did back then!

1. Mariah Carey

Ms. Carey may not have come out with any chart toppers recently, but really, after you’ve done the longest-running Billboard No. 1 with Boyz II Men, what else is there?

2. The Spice Girls

3. Britney Spears

Raise your hand if you always knew that Britney Spears would rally after 2007!!! *raises hand*

I’ll just leave this little nostalgic gem right here…

4. Christina Aguilera

Back in the “Genie In A Bottle” era, who would have thought that Christina Aguilera would one day come to be the definition of elegance and sophistication on The Voice and in real life?

5. Gwen Stefani

Once a a style icon, always a style icon. But we’re really glad Gwen Stefani swapped her spaghetti braided buns for old Hollywood glamor.

6. The Backstreet Boys

It’s been two whole decades and the Backstreet Boys are still larger than life. Get even more Backstreet Boys nostalgia .

7. N’Sync


We’ll never be able to say bye, bye, bye to these five. <3

8. Ricky Martin

Since his days on General Hospital, Ricky Martin has updated his Tarzan hair and started wearing shirts under his blazers, but he’s still the same sex symbol we know and love.

9. Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo is still Jenny from the block, except now she’s worth $320 million and turned out to be one of Hollywood’s hottest A-list celebrities.

Which of these stars do you still love just as much now as you did 20 years ago?
