You can only be so popular in high school when you play a trombone. Despite her band camp tendancies, Nelly Furtado says she was actually pretty popular and involved in high school activities when she was 16.
“It’s horrible, I was popular!” she said. “We were the cool girls. We were also really involved in school activities. I was the head of the graduation committee, organizing all the grad events.”
Needless to say, host Jordan Bortolotti was disappointed his 16-year-old self probably wouldn’t have a chance with Nelly Furtado’s 16-year-old self.
“You never know!” said Nelly.
In this episode of Way Back When, the singer talks about playing the trombone, being obsessed with TLC and what her teen self would think of her current pop-stardom.
