Katy Perry is one of the biggest pop stars in the world, thanks to massive hits such as California Gurls and Dark Horse.
And it appears she knew her Teenage Dream would come true.
On Thursday, the 29-year-old I Kissed A Girl singer shared a photo to Instagram of herself from 15 years ago where she was posing with a friend in a shirt that read POP STAR on the front.

Perry, with her arm around the shoulders of her gal pal, bares a chocolate-coated grin for the camera in the Throwback Thursday snap.

She captioned the picture ‘TBT me at 14 or 15 wearing a bedazzled shirt that said POPSTAR. (with chocolate in my teeth yerp)’.
