5 Celebrities Who Hate Selfies
Not understanding how people and even fellow celebrities can post selfie after selfie to their Instagram accounts, these 5 stars say they just don’t understand the photo-posting phenomenon and think it’s even a negative thing. Some have slammed how society is now so self-centered and vain, while others think people are just doing whatever they can to grab other people’s attention and it’s become far too excessive. Here are their thoughts on selfies and why they aren’t in to it.
Jennifer doesn’t know why anyone would want more photos of herself: “I don’t understand them. I feel like there’s enough out there, why add to it?”
Amy thinks the amount of selfies people post is just too much: ”The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control. The idea of, ‘This is my face and everyone needs to see it all the time,’ is so far from the privacy that people used to seek. Now everyone acts the way ’80s performance artists used to act.”
Rashida slammed celebrities who post skimpy selfies to gain attention: “This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular. #stopactinglikewhores.”
James thinks people use selfies to build power: “Attention is power. And if you are someone people are interested in, then the selfie provides something very powerful, from the most privileged perspective possible.”
Kim thinks it’s a bad sign that so many people care so much about selfies: “If you look at this generation of selfies and selfies and selfies, it seems a little bit scary,” she tells Interview magazine. I like to see a driven kid, somebody who wants to come from the ground up .?.?. you just don’t know what’s going to happen to this generation.”
