It all started when a picture of Miley Cyrus went viral, claiming the 31-year-old Grammy award-winning singer "aged like fine wine."

Miley Cyrus, age 31, sits smiling and relaxed in a business-casual outfit, as described in a tweet praising her

People were like, "Wait, what? 31 is old now?"

Cartoon of a skeleton sitting in a chair with a humorous caption: "How you must imagine 31 year olds look". Tweet by Austin with the handle @Flawsom

"She's 31, not 71," one person said.

Tweet by user @casey_payne999 that reads, "She's 31... not 71"

Another person said. "She's not geriatric, she looks normal for a 31-year-old."

Tweet from Carlie (@mynameiscarlie): "she’s 31, she’s not considered geriatric. she looks like a normal 31 y/o."

Sooo, because this seems to be a trend, let's look at what 31 has looked like in our *recent* history so we can determine once and for all if 31 is old now*.

*Dear God, it isn't.
