The 23-year-old can obviously tell us all about her past. Still, we all know a picture is worth a thousand words. Thankfully, internet sleuths have been able to unearth photos from Spice's time in high school, including her yearbook photo. When that began circulating social media some weeks ago, users were quick to point out the resemblance between the rising artist and Lauren London.
Of course, not everyone agreed. However, many couldn't deny that seeing the “Bikini Bottom” hitmaker sporting straight black hair rather than her usual tight red curls made them look incredibly alike. On her “In Ha Mood” single, Spice even seemingly referenced the comparisons, rapping, “Pretty face like Lauren and a big ass butt.”
On Tuesday (February 14), yet another throwback photo of the Bronx native appeared online. This one proves that she previously spent some time dabbling in athletics. The slightly blurry image sees a much younger Isis Gaston sporting her usual curly hair. She offers the camera a closed-mouth smile while seemingly kneeling in her high school volleyball uniform.
During her time on the team, Spice proudly repped number four. According to a TikTok posted earlier this year, she went on to play for Purchase College Athletics Women's Volleyball after graduating. Thanks to a scholarship, she was also allegedly able to study Biology while playing the sport she loves.
Fans are clearly eating up the older images of the redhead. Thankfully, there have been plenty of new ones surfacing lately too. Less than a year ago, hardly anyone had heard of Spice, and now she's sitting front row during runways and performing at New York Fashion Week parties.
