At the end of 1999, some speculated that when the clock struck midnight and it became the year 2000, the world would be wiped out. Ironically, when the clock struck midnight and it became 2021, we prayed the depressing year of 2020 would be remedied.
In such a difficult time, it only makes sense that we want to look back and remember the best fashion moments, movies and celebrity feuds that played out in the early 2000s.
If you’re feeling as nostalgic as we are, check out which 2000s starlet you would be based on your zodiac sign.
Aries: Mariah Carey
Aries, your celebrity alter ego is none other than the iconic Mariah Carey. As the first sign in the zodiac, you are a natural leader and will never back down from a challenge.
Don’t worry Aries, we are still “Obsessed” with you.
Taurus: Hilary Duff
Like the “Lizzie McGuire” star, Taurus you are patient and down to earth. Your sign is ruled by Venus which means you’ve got a lot of love to go around, which could lead you to give it to some people who don’t deserve it. We’re looking at you Aaron Carter.
You tend to come across as shy and withdrawn at times, but your kind and reliable personality often comes to your advantage and makes you a great friend and family member.
Gemini: The Olsen Twins
Who better to describe the twins of the zodiac than the most famous twins of the early 2000s, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Your sign is often unfairly misrepresented as two-faced; however, like the Olsen twins, there simply has to be two of you to make you the powerhouse you are.
The Olsen twins had very successful acting careers, founded their own production company and are now wildly successful fashion designers in addition to business women.
Pursue your goals and remember dear Gemini, you’re not just a set of pretty faces.
Cancer: Lauren Conrad
Cancer, your element is water and you are also ruled by the moon which also happens to control the tides. It is only fitting that you be represented by Laguna Beach native, Lauren Conrad.
Like Conrad on “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” you are a sensitive sign. You can be stubborn and hold a grudge. You also tend to take on other people’s problems like they are your own.
Remember your good friends only want to help you shine.
Leo: Paris Hilton
As the unofficial royalty of the zodiac, it seems only fitting that Leo is represented by the unofficial queen of the early 2000s, Paris Hilton.
The famous heiress we know and love today grew up wealthy, but the millions she has today are mostly from her own business endeavors. Like Paris, you like to be the center of attention, but you also like to earn your place there.
In true Virgo fashion, Beyoncé has always been on top of her game. Since going off on her own from Destiny’s Child she has become incredibly successful in both singing and acting.
Like Queen Bey, Virgo, you are known to be a perfectionist and always seeking purpose in your next big achievement. In relationships, it may take you a while to find the one, but don’t settle for anything less than you deserve.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z might be hip-hop’s power couple, but you hold more power on your own than you think.
Libra: Gwyneth Paltrow
Like the famous actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Libra, you value aesthetics and beauty. Your ruling planet is Venus; which is where you get your creative side.
Your fashion sense is unmatched and you often know just what to wear to highlight your best features. You also dream of success like Paltrow who flaunts an impressive acting career on top of launching an extremely successful lifestyle online publication, Goop.
Scorpio: Kim Kardashian
Scorpio, you have a ruthless eat or be eaten way of seeing the world. Like Kim Kardashian, you have a keen knowledge of business and also a need for competition.
You’re dangerously flirtatious and sweet until provoked. Most of all, nobody better mess with your family.
Sagittarius: Britney Spears
Britney Spears is one of the most famous pop stars of the early 2000s and also one of the biggest party girls. Similar to the personality of a Sagittarius, Spears had a knack for making friends and even more so for falling in love.
You often seek out new adventures and see the world as your playground meant to explore. As a result of this, you often don’t like being tied down in relationships. Anyone falling in love with a Sagittarius should use caution. You’ll be in love and they’ll be saying, “Oops, I did it again.”
Capricorn: Nicole Richie
On their reality television show, “The Simple Life”, Nicole Richie stars alongside her then bestie, Paris Hilton as they travel and work in low-paying jobs. Richie gives off Capricorn energy by proving to be a loyal best friend to Hilton, despite their status as non-friends today.
She also went on to marry Good Charlotte star Joel Madden and putting her party days behind her to become a businesswoman and dedicated momma. Like Richie, Capricorn, you value family, tradition and dependency.
Aquarius: Lindsay Lohan
Rebellious and unpredictable, Lindsay Lohan and Aquarians are similar in the sense that they both aren’t exactly easy to get close to. Strangely, this often makes people want to get to know you even more.
Despite your best efforts to make friends and get close to people, you tend to accidentally-sort-of on purpose try to be alone. You most likely have a wild side that could be a challenge eventually, but it is also the thing people love most about you.
Pisces is said to be a deep, emotional and slightly mysterious human beings. They care deeply for the people around them and like Rihanna, are very aware of what can be done to make them feel better.
Rihanna’s music has always celebrated women and now she has created lingerie and makeup to make all women feel beautiful. Similarly, Pisces love to do work that makes them feel like they are contributing to something larger.
