With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift to match your mom’s unique lifestyle.

Long before they were cool musicians, most of these celebs were dorky kids just like you and me — and we’ve got the proof. This selection of junior high and high school photos from some of the world’s top musicians confirms that even the most jaded rockstar was probably kind of a dweeb when they were younger.

Happy May Day, everyone! Let’s take a look at what we’re wearing…
We’ve been big fans of Tracy Reese for a long time. Her dresses are girly, pretty and the epitome of feminine charm. So we were especially thrilled to learn she’d be doing a capsule collection for Anthropologie.

Check out Reese’s designs in the slideshow above!
Courtney Love is getting creative, and this time it has nothing to do with naked Twit pics or making accusations that Dave Grohl hit on her daughter. She’s an artist now! Actually, according to Love, she’s always been an artist. Apparently, she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute in the ’80s. Who knew? Anyhow, her first gallery show “And She’s Not Even Pretty” is set to open this week at Fred Torres Collaborations in New York. The show will feature more than 45 of Love’s drawings, many of them with accompanying bits of her poetry and song lyrics. One of the more explicit pieces, “Keep It Up, Mother,” shows a woman on a crucifix with blood running down her naked body. The poetry reads: “How you must have suffered getting accustomed to ME. My savage solitary soul — my NAME that sends them all running …”
Uh oh. Someone is doing deep exploration of her “mothering issues.” AND we can’t wait to see the bloody display. Courtney isn’t the only famous person who has tried her hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have picked up the palette.
