There are a lot of things Kylie Jenner could be sad about: the demise of her former lips, having four older annoying sisters, a demanding narcissistic momager, and being treated more like a brand than a real person.


But as her new reality show points out, it’s missing her prom that gives her an instant case of the sads.

In the KUWTK spin-off, Life of Kylie, which debuted Sunday, the youngest Kardashian-Jenner reveals the reason why she never went to prom: she was home schooled. One can only guess what her teachings consisted of and who was learnin’ her. Oh, lordy!

As crushing as that news is, there are plenty of celebrities who never made it to prom, mainly because they were busy being celebrities. Here are 9 for comparison:


Miley Cyrus

During the CMT Awards in 2008, she said wouldn’t be attending to her prom because she was shooting her move, The Last Song.


Niall Horan

If you had to choose between making millions of dollars being in One Direction and (probably) dancing to one of One Direction’s songs on a stupid dance floor, which would you choose?

Katy Perry

The closest she ever got to going to prom was crashing someone else’s. Not only did she crash a high school prom in Melbourne, she performed!

Charlie Puth

The young crooner told Teen Vogue in 2016 that: “I was basically bullied because I was unique, I was different than everybody” and that “I never went to prom or anything like that but some amazing things happened in my life.”

James Franco

In a 1999 interview, Franco said his prom fell on his 18th birthday, and since his girlfriend at the time was an actress, they took a trip to Aspen, Oregon to see some plays instead.

Madonna

According to the Material Girl, she “sat home alone. Couldn’t get a date.”

But she did share a photo of her daughter’s prom nigh. (You just KNOW Madge had a killer dress in her closet, ready to wear.)

Paul Wesley

The Vampire Diaries star told Teen Vogue in 2009 that he could relate to the reclusiveness of his character Stefan, saying,”I wasn’t some weird loner in school, but I definitely wasn’t invited to any of the cool parties. Girls didn’t like me that much — I didn’t even go to my prom.”

Justin Bieber

He doesn’t really seem like the the prom type, but The Biebs did end up crashing a high school prom back in 2015 (look what you started, Katy Perry!). His accomplice was Hailey Baldwin, who also missed her own prom because of work-related busy-ness.

They may not have been crowned King and Queen, but it all worked out for them in the end.

Victoria Justice

She was too busy to attend her own prom, but she did something even better. In 2012, she donated her VMA dress to an organization that provides prom dresses to those who can’t afford them.
