I’m turning 25 in a month, which makes me still a young’n, right guys? RIGHT? Here’s a list of millennials, 25 or younger, who are absolutely killing it in life.
Adele – May 5, 1988 – 25
Her second album is entitled 21. That was her age when she was singing about Rolling in the Someone like You while she Set Fire to the Rain. Her first album, 19, was equally rife with emotionally mature content. Of course, she was only 19 then, so still technically a teenager. Makes you want to punch the guy she dated during those 2 years.
Kevin Durant – September 29,1988 – 24
NBD, just dunkin on Lebron… Durant was named Rookie of the Year in 2010. Since then, he’s a been a 4X All-Star and won the NBA Scoring title 3X. Oh yeah,Durant is also an extremely humble and likeable human being [VIDEO].
Hayden Panatierre – August 21, 1989 – 23
Bring it On: All or Nothing seems like ages ago. And it was (2006). Usually, in films and TV shows they try to pass off 27-year olds as high school students, but Hayden was literally 15 while they were shooting this thing. Now, she is super hottie singer extraordinaire in the ABC show Nashville, unabashedly my favorite freakin show on TV. Well done, Hayden.
Robert Griffin, III – February 12, 1990 – 23
RG3 is nasty… in a good way. Unlike some Texas football players who red-shirt kindergarten and graduate college by 25, 26, Mr. 3 finished high school early and then completed his undergrad in 3 years, while also making time to win the Heisman in 2011. Now, he’s the starting QB for the Redskins, recovering from a knee injury that ended his electrifying rookie season. He’ll be back, through. Trust.
Jennifer Lawrence – August 15, 1990 – 23
She was nominated for an Academy Award for her second film ever, Winter’s Bone. She won next year for Silver Linings Playbook. Everyone wants to be her friend. Oh yeah, and in her free time she plays Katniss Everdeen in a little known franchise called The Hunger Games.
Ed Sheeran – February 17, 1991 – 22
Ed Sheeran almost didn’t make the list because of his Bieber-esque fanbase, which kind of gives away his age. Still, it’s pretty insane that his break-out hit, A-Team, which actually came out in 2010, is written about a homeless drug-addict who he met in a homeless shelter. Dark stuff. Sheeran has been on the road for literally 4 years non-stop. Fun fact: He was discovered in the US by Jamie Foxx, who let him crash at his house and use his recording studio. Not bad, Ed. Not bad.
Miley Cyrus – November 23, 1992 – 20
Risque bare back photo shoot with Annie Lebowitz? That was so 5 years ago. Miley’s only 20 and she’s already had multiple careers and multiple personas. Child star? check. Country crooner? check. Pop princess? check. Inappropriate anti-role model? check and check. Hard to believe she’s under 21, so she can’t even toast to her own success. lolz.
