Mandy Moore, everyone’s favorite mediocre ’90s singer, turns 29 today! And what better way to celebrate than with a gif-illustrated look back at Mandy’s greatest cultural contributions!
At the tender age of 15, Mandy burst onto the scene in a totally hip lime green VW bug in the music video for her first single, “Candy.” She was too young to actually drive the vehicle so they had to rig it to a truck. Aww!
She plays another Bible lover in 2004’s Saved, but, this time, she’s evil and likes to throw scripture at atheists and will shoot anyone who tries to have sex with her before marriage in the penis.
She then took part in the only photoshoot that matters, alongside Amanda Bynes, the Olsens, and Hilary Duff. Also: Props to whomever, like, wrote the copy for this cover.
Mandy eventually transitioned to television with stints on shows like Entourage and Scrubs. Apparently, her character in the latter series didn’t care for being upstaged by inflatable breasts.
Nowadays, Mandy splits her time between making music and movies, being randomly married to Ryan Adams, and looking smoking at fashion weeks around the globe. May she never stop being on the outermost periphery of our cultural knowledge!
The only way to bring this post to an end is with a foot salute. Bye!
