Never have four girls looked as happy as the young girls from Destiny’s Child looked in this photo. In 2000, Destiny’s Child was at the peak of their success, and little did they know that one of its members would go on to become an international superstar. Here’s Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Farrah Franklin, and Michelle Williams.
They’re posing in their gorgeous red bikini tops and jeans outfits (and let’s not forget the diamond stick-on tattoos we loved so much!). This was before getting on stage to perform at “MTV Spring Break” in 2000. The outfits were so iconic that they became the signature look of the girl group, inspiring many fans to replicate the style for years to come.
Rebecca Romijn and Jay-Z Get Cozy – 2000
Long before he became Queen Bey’s hubby, legendary rapper Jay-Z certainly had his fun. Here he is performing on stage at the "MTV Spring Break" show of 2000 while giving the gorgeous Rebecca Romijn a very loving hug. We don’t know if it was the heat or the happiness, but Jay-Z looks ecstatic in this photo.
Little did he know that eight years later, he would become Mr. Beyonce Knowles. The photo captures Jay-Z's undeniable charisma on stage, as well as his ability to capture the hearts of beautiful women. It's no surprise that he would go on to have one of the most successful music careers of all time, with hit after hit and countless accolades.
Carmen Electra Drives the Crowd Wild – 2000
We bet there wasn’t a single college student in that crowd that will ever forget "MTV Spring Break" in 2000 for many reasons – the most important one being Carmen Electra’s performance in a black bikini swimsuit and heels. The woman is too stunning for words.
We’re impressed by the sheer will and skill it takes to perform in those platform heels in 80-degree heat! She seems to be having the time of her life. It wasn't just her beauty but also her confidence and energy on stage that captivated the audience. Even after all these years, Carmen Electra's performance remains one of the most memorable moments in "MTV Spring Break" history.
Ja Rule Gets Heatstroke – 2001
We all remember jamming to Ja Rule’s “I’m Real” song with Jennifer Lopez, and of course, the number one hit “Always on Time” with the beautiful Ashanti. From 1999 to the mid-2000s, this American rapper saw amazing success and obviously performed on "MTV Spring Break."
Above is the handsome Ja Rule looking a bit heat-stroked while he performs in “Carmen Electra’s Dance Party,” one of the most anticipated bits of the show. We can only imagine how tough it is to perform in the scorching heat, but Ja Rule is giving it his all! His energy, while sweaty, is infectious, and we can see why he had so many fans.
Eve Enjoys Some Sun – 2001
Remember the gorgeous rapper and singer/songwriter behind “Who's That Girl?” and “Gotta Man”? Yes, we’re talking about the one and only Eve. Here she is, looking as hot as ever, with the beautiful Cancun beaches in the background. We love the open black top, the graffiti-style skirt, and her signature animal paw tattoos on her chest.
But the white boots – where exactly are you going with that, Evie? It must be 100 degrees outside! Regardless, she seems to be having a great time, and who wouldn't be, surrounded by the sun, sand, and sea? Eve was definitely one of the coolest female rappers of the early 2000s, and this photo perfectly captures her signature style and confidence.
