Pop Stars from the 2000s, See What They Look like Now
Ever wondered what some of your favorite one-hit-wonders from the 2000s look like now? Well, we have the photos for you to see!
The early 2000s were full of amazing pop songs, and some of the prettiest teen singers with sweet dance moves. Here is a few of our favorite girls from this awesome decade, and what they look like now!
Hoku, meaning "star" in Hawaiian, is the daughter of singer Don Ho and had a hit song with her 2000 song "Another Dumb Blonde." I remember this song when it came out, but the real hit for me was with her 2001 song "Perfect Day" and many women know it, even if they don't at first. The opening for the Reese Witherspoon movie "Legally Blonde" featured this song, while you saw Reese getting ready for another perfect day in her life. Because of that movie, I'll always remember the lyrics to this song.
Hoku was hard to find. She married her manager back in 1999 and now goes by Hoku Ho Clements. So even when she was telling us about her another dumb blonde issues, she was already married! She made a Facebook page in 2007, and also a Twitter in 2009 but both she stopped updating soon after creating them. Here is a photo from her Twitter in 2009, that doesn't show her, but you do see her beautiful baby.
Singer Blu Cantrell had a hit with her song about kicking her cheating man to the curb. "Hit 'Em Up Style" hit #2 on the Billboard charts and became the anthem to many scorned women around the world.

Blu Cantrell was in the headlines in September 2014 after she went running through the streets of Los Angeles, saying people were trying to kill her with "poisonous gases." She was taken by police for a psychological examination. Hopefully, she's doing better now.
Hip Hop and R&B singer May was known first for being featured along with Ol' Dirty Bastard on the Pras' Grammy nominated hit "Ghetto Superstar" in 1998. Her breakout hit had to be "Case of the Ex." I still remember this video, and the beginning of this song. It was so catchy and the music was infectious. After, she ended up joining the massive hit "Lady Marmalade" along with Pink, Lil Kim, Missy Elliott and Christina Aguilera. The song was a huge success and catapulted her career.
Mya has been in the tabloids recently for an alleged affair between her and rapper Jay-Z. She came out publicly to deny those allegations. Since the early 2000s, Mya is still as beautiful as ever, however her career hasn't favored as well as her looks. She performed in January at a gentleman's club in Miami. The video was posted to Instagram and you can see it here.
Michelle Branch is a singer-songwriter and guitarist that has released two top-selling albums, The Spirit Room and Hotel Paper. She released a slew of hits, including "All You Wanted," "Goodbye To You," "Breathe," and "Are You Happy Now?" Arguably her biggest single is the song "Everywhere." It was her first single released, and she also won a MTV Video Music Award for Viewer's Choice. Michelle won a Grammy for her collaboration with Santana on the song "Game of Love."
Michelle is still recording and has been working on a new album in London and Nashville. Her cover of Radiohead's "Creep" was used in an episode of the TV show Stalker. She is active on social media through Instagram, and posts photos often.
