LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Gwen Stefani has come a long way since 1983, when she asked Sting for his autograph backstage at a concert. The 44-year-old singer, fashion designer and mom recently tweeted a photo of her unrecognizable younger self -- no midriff-bearing tee or red lipstick in sight -- when she would have been about 14 years old.

Stefani and Sting ended up performing together two decades later, at the 2003 Super Bowl.

It's a cute photo, but some social media users had a problem with the No Doubt frontwoman referring to her former self as "chunky."

"@gwenstefani please don't call yourself chunky. Too many girls and women look up to you for you to talk like that," tweeted one critic.
