Here are the jobs your fave celebs had before they got famous:

1. Miley Cyrus

From starring in our fave show ever, “Hannah Montana,” to being in several movies, bringing out so much incredible music, and now being a coach on “The Voice,” Miley Cyrus has and continues to do it all! Her first ever job before she became famous was working for a cleaning service. She talked about it on “The Tyra Banks Show” several years go and said, “I had one normal job and I actually liked it. I worked at this place called Sparkles Cleaning Service and I cleaned houses. I was like 11… I can clean toilet bowls.”

2. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is the queen of fashion and she’s always out setting trends, even prior to fame! Before becoming the singing sensation that she is today, Lady Gaga worked as a waitress in NYC and she admitted that she brought style to that job too! She told ELLE, “I always wore heels to work! I told everybody stories, and for customers on dates, I kept it romantic. It’s kind of like performing.”


3. Kanye West

Yeezy worked at The Gap prior to his immense amount of fame and he even rapped about it in his song, “Spaceship.”

4. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s success is truly out of this world. Prior to her being the record-breaking, international phenomenon that she is today, Taylor Swift worked on her family’s Christmas tree farm. Back in 2008, she went on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and said, “I was too young to help with the hauling of the trees up the hills and putting them onto cars; so it was my job to pull of the preying mantis pods off of the Christmas trees. The problem with that is if you leave them on there, people bring them into their house.” It looks like Christmas has always been a jolly season for T-Swift!
