On Thursday (May 13), we took a sneak peak at some old school photos from some of the subjects of this week’s new edition of “When I Was 17,” the new MTV show that takes a look at the high school lives of some of your favorite pop culture superstars.
As some of you correctly guessed, the cute baby in the photo we posted was actually rap star Drake, who is one of the subjects of the latest episode (which airs this Saturday, May 15 at 11 a.m. on MTV). In addition to revealing his baby photos and a brief history of his embarrassing hair styles, Drake also discusses his strange obsession with eBay and the early snags he hit in his music career.
The new episode of “When I Was 17” also features rapper-turned-actress-turned-singer-turned-rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah, who talks about being voted “Most Popular” and “Most Comical” by her high school peers and also playing a show at the famous Apollo Theater in New York. Olympic softball star Jennie Finch rounds out the episode with her tales of cruising in her dad’s classic car and doing her signature dance (it’s called “The Cat Claw” and clearly influenced Lady Gaga’s fan-specific gang sign).
Check out a preview of this weekend’s edition of “When I Was 17” below, and be sure to tune in for all the great stories, anecdotes and embarrassing revelations when the show airs on Saturday, May 15 at 11 a.m. on MTV.
