Last March, Ellen Degeneres took one of the most famous 'selfies' in the history of social media at the Oscars:
Naturally, we were no strangers to selfies before that but I feel that that particular image sparked a phenomenon that has only been gaining momentum since.
These days, not only our close friends frequently bombard our Instagram and Facebook feeds with selfies of their pouts, but celebrities all over the world are also indulging in the genius of the front-facing camera phone.
Feast your eyes on my selection of the best selfies of 2015 so far:
1. The Rock
The Rock would just like to let us know that he is still ripped. In case you somehow forgot, that is.
2. Azealia Banks
Captioned: Azealia Banks as "Condomhead."
I'm totally into it.
3. Miley Cyrus
She was "bored af selfie" so naturally she posted a naked one.
4. Kim Kardashian
As this was Kim's first solo selfie of 2015, naturally it had to make the cut.
At the Super Bowl this year, she even parodied her own snap-happy obsession in a T-Mobile commercial. If you missed it, here it is again:
5. Selena Gomez
Selena showed off her new locks and some questionable eyewear.
6. Taylor Swift
Taylor once again proved that she's totally normal and not averse to a good cup of tea either.
Queen B keeping it real as usual. She's buried herself in sand, because... why not?
8. Iggy Azalea
Iggy shows off her huge mane. Such a difference to her usual poke-straight locks! I guess, new year... new hair-do?
9. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga got hammered and decided to tell us all about her pizza cravings.
10. Jennifer Lopez
JLo gets us jittering with excitement with a glamorous pre-Golden Globes snap.
11. Justin Bieber
Justin tries to put to bed all those rumors that his Calvin Klein campaign was photoshopped. Can you spot the difference?
Somehow, I'm not convinced... are you?
12. Rita Ora
Rita shows off her new pup! So cuuuuuuuute!
13. Lindsey Lohan
Lindsey Lohan welcomes in the New Year looking happy and healthy! Good for her!
