We’ve all heard about glowing up, the time in your life where you reach your peak confidence when it comes to your appearance, style, and overall attitude. It’s a time where you come into yourself and you finally feel comfortable with what you’re working with.
Unfortunately there is another side to that as well, the glow down. A glow down is when an individual is no longer glowing, they have changed themselves in some ways that have made people no longer think they’re hot as they once were. We’ve decided to gather up 15 celebrities who have recently had a glow down according to the general public. This list is based off of mass opinions from people around the world and we’re not saying they’re ugly or less of an individual, but other people tend to think so because of these changes. Just because someone changes something about themselves doesn't mean that an individual has the right to judge them for it, or even feel uncomfortable about it when it’s not even about themselves. So keep that in mind before moving forward with this list.
From the Kardashians to Miley Cyrus, this list has it all, any celebrity within the last two years that have had a serious glow down. Whether it’s their style, their appearance, or even their attitude, they’ve been rubbing people the wrong way with these changes and we can only hope they step it up sooner rather than later! Who do you agree with or disagree with on this list?
15 Baggy Clothes And Photoshop
We all know Khloe has recently had a glow up, but even more recently she’s been showing some not so great signs. Whether she’s gained weight is besides the point, but whatever work she has gotten done is starting to look a bit botched. According to many individuals options she looked so much better and younger when she was heavier, that's because of her excessive addiction to getting work done and botox, her skin has started to sag and wrinkle. It’s not a cute look. Although we generally love the Kardashians and all they do, this is just too far according to most of the internet that feels it’s right to constantly judge what a person looks like. So many people have gotten mad at her for getting botox injections and constantly altering her appearance. All we know, she can do anything she wants to her body as long as it makes her as happy as she possibly can, that goes for everyone.
14 It's All Downhill From Here
“I know not everyone will like me, but this is who I am so if you don't like it, tough!”
We all probably loved Britney Spears back in the day, she was the hottest pop star on the charts for years. Britney Spears has recently taken a turn for the worse, even though she’s been taking charge of her career she’s been going into a downward spiral in terms of keeping up with her looks. Some people hate that she seems to have put on a few extra pounds which totally isn’t something to be ashamed of, but the internet will always blast its opinion everywhere no matter what. Other than that, people seem to have an issue with her still doing pop music, but honestly we’re living for the revival of Britney, we’ll always be a number one fan! Plus she looks great even with a shaved head, don’t even get us started.
13 New Look
“You can't buy back your respect; you can't buy back your career. You only get one, so I don't want to mess that up.”
Shia LaBeouf has always been an interesting guy, he’s creative, and knows how to dress, well at least he did. While we love what he stands for and the difference he’s been trying to make, he has let his look go a bit. Many people are upset at him for leaving behind his well groomed manners and how he’s recently had a glow down because of being so occupied with all the other projects he’s been working on. In his Vanity Fair portrayal, you can see Shia LaBeouf with no hair at all and he starts from scratch when it comes to growing it back out, with no grooming at all. This might not be our favorite look, but people should stop being so harsh when he’s been doing so much good in the world around us. That’s what should matter the very most!
12 Nasty Divorce
“I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.”
It drives us mad that people think Angelina Jolie has gotten a glow down just because she’s gotten older. She’s still one of the hottest celebrities on the red carpet at any age, but just because she’s gotten older, which isn’t something you can just stop, many people have thought that she’s ugly. Angelina Jolie should be allowed to be herself no matter who she wants to be, no opinion form the internet should come in the way of that. She has the confidence that’s more powerful than anyone in Hollywood today and as a recently single woman, she looks stunning from any angle! Do you really think that she belongs on this list at all, because we sure don’t! She hasn’t had a glow down at all, but not according to the internet!
11 Dreaded Problems
The Weeknd, according to the internet has been in a glow down phase ever since he cut his dreads off. His hair was a signature look, it was something that you could always recognize as The Weeknd's for miles away. But now that he’s cut his hair, everything has changed and the internet is seriously upset about it. While people still love his music, they have no problem going all over Twitter to tweet about how much they love his music, but they would love it more if he just brought his old look back. How messed up is that?! While we personally think he doesn’t look that much different with or without his signature dreads, as an artist he should be allowed to change anything he wants about himself so he can express himself! Do you really think that The Weeknd has had a major glow down with his style and look!?
10 Not So Baywatch
She’s always been a character, always doing anything she wants, but many people think her later years have been a complete glow down. While she might have been one of the hottest babes on Baywatch, this is just another instance where people have aged. No one on this planet can stop ageing and while people can have their opinions, it’s not right to just judge someone because they’ve simply aged before you. Pamela Anderson has done so much in her life, yet her age is what everyone remembers and what everyone sees. While people can believe she’s had a glow down, We rather think of it as simple aging, it’s natural and it happens to everyone, she just happened to be in the spotlight. Do you agree?
9 A Life Of Experience
Daryl Hannah has always been seen as one of the hottest celebs, but the moment she hit 40, it’s like the world turned against her. She’s been dubbed as having a glow down for years, and there’s no coming back when the internet has already spoken. Although we don’t think the situation is that bad, you can look almost anywhere on the internet and see how people seem to think it’s right that they feel seriously offended that Daryl Hannah has aged and experienced more life as a woman. It’s almost like they just wish she wasn’t around so she doesn’t have to make them uncomfortable with her presence. Talk about messed up! Daryl Hannah has gone through a lot in her life, it’s only natural that that will show a bit in her physical appearance. Why can’t people just be cool for one moment in their life and keep their opinions to themselves!
8 Shaved Head And Blonde Locks
“People say, 'Just say who you're dating. Then people will stop being so ravenous about it.' It's like, No they won't! They'll ask for specifics.”
Ever since Kristen Stewart shaved her head and dyed it blonde, people have thought it was okay to express their opinions about her alter ego that she has now exposed to the world. Many people are saying that she’s not sexy enough to pull off the buzzed hairstyle, and many others are saying that she just looks weird and gross now that she’s cut her hair. Overall it’s a pretty messed up situation that she doesn’t deserve whatsoever. Just because people think she’s in a glow down because of her style change, they need to think for a second what it would be like if they were in her shoes. Do you like the buzzed hair and color change that she’s made or do you think it’s a glow down too?
7 We Like The Old JLaw
“Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist.”
Her recent work has really made people not like J Law, many people are sick of her losing weight for movie roles and dying her hair blonde. Many people on the internet just want her to be her old self, the chubby, brunette, who was always funny. Now that she’s hot, surprisingly many people on the internet have really shown just how much they believe this to be a glow down. They don’t connect with her anymore and they don’t even want to see the new work that she’s been starring in. We believe that anyone should be able to do what they want as long as it’s not hurting people. If she wants to dye her hair blonde and be at a healthy weight for herself, then so be it. All we ask is that you just accept where she is now in her life!
“I do not think I reinvent myself. Wearing my hair differently or changing my style of dress is playing dress-up. I don't take it too seriously.”
Mariah Carey has been in the news in abundance lately because of her weight gain. She’s been constantly performing on her recent tour, while also taking pictures for magazines like Paper Magazine. While the images looked like she was slimmed down, as soon as she got on stage to perform people noticed quite the difference in her body. We’re not saying she looks bad a heavier weight, but we are saying that she basically was photoshopped multiple times for magazines and it’s really made people not trust her and her diva attitude. Who cares if someone gains weight, all we care about is when someone tries to hide it and just ends up lying through their teeth. Talk about a glow down. All this does is just make her look bad!
5 Mixed Up Times
“Punk has always been about doing things your own way. What it represents for me is ultimate freedom and a sense of individuality.”
The punk god himself, Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of Green Day has been in the news recently, the gossip news, because of his choice to start performing again. Because he is now putting himself out there, he’s had a number of “fans” call him out for being old, for aging, and how that’s changed his style. And if they aren’t making fun of his age and considering that a glow down, they are also making fun of the fact that he still has his black hair that doesn’t fit his age apparently. The internet is full of opinions, some of the most hurtful as well. What if someone acted like this about you when you were older, constantly comparing you to pictures of your younger self, what kind of life would you have then?
4 Bad Choices
Katie Holmes has been in and out of the news because of her dating Jamie Foxx. Because of this exposed relationship that the world now knows about, this has made people not like her because of her choices. Many people are saying she’s had a glow down because of her choice in men, and the only thing we have to say to that is, how hateful can you really be? Is that something that makes you feel better because you believe she shouldn’t be with a man like Jamie Foxx? Crazy thinking honestly. Katie Holmes has always been a caring and generous soul in Hollywood, she doesn’t deserve this judgment and critical review just because of her choices that have nothing to do with you in the first place. Let’s just hope she’s living a happy life and is happy with Foxx, they deserve it! Do you agree or do you disagree?
3 All Kinds Of Weird
“I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be a role model. My mom always tells me that imperfections equal beauty. All of us are imperfect.”
Ever since Miley Cyrus updated her style and completely changed her style from rap music to indie pop, everything has changed, even her fan base which she has confused again because of her hot and cold changes of style. She seems to never be able to keep one style longer than a year. She’s been all over the place and no one seems to be able to stop her from these drastic changes. While she still is one of the biggest pop stars around, her style needs to be rethought out because that two toned hair is a bit too much to handle, even for us! Let’s just hope that she finds her own style soon, instead of all this guessing and trying on a style that isn’t even hers in the first place.
2 What Are You Wearing?
"'Perfection' to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, 'I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.' I was a hundred percent, like the meter was at the top. There was nothing else I could have done. You know? Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That's perfection.”
Many people are hating on Drake not only because of his mix of style, but also because of his attitude and his style that constantly makes him seem like he’s acting better than everyone else. Ever since he stopped acting like he does in his Hotline Bling music video, he’s been upsetting quite a few people who want the old Drake back. Apparently this means he’s had a glow down, because no one is happy with his old style, even though Tyra Banks is in his newest music video, it’s not enough to save him.
1 Pulling A Miley, Or A Britney
“I come from a very non-accepting family, but I'm very accepting.”
Since she cut her hair and dyed it blonde, so many people have been against this style change from Katy Perry. Everyone is saying that not only is this a glow down, but it’s also her trying to be something that she’s not at all. While yes, we know people change their styles all the time, people can do anything. But when you appropriate rap and pop culture, you’ll notice right away the wrath from the internet. People were not happy with her new sound or style, saying that she’s just a culture vulture and that she doesn’t even know how to be unique anymore. People are saying that she should have stuck with her own style that she developed before when she was creating her pop music. She sure has divided her fan base when it comes to her personal choices recently.
