You’re An Instagram Addict, But It’s Not Your Fault

Instagram

We all know the compulsive itch to check Instagram at the most inopportune of moments (or worse, in our actual free time when we could be doing so many things that are actually constructive). Nir Eyal, author of Hooked: How To Build Habit-Forming Products, recently sat down with Business Insider to explain why the app is so damn addictive. If you can’t tell by the title of his book, the factors are pretty bleak, and were definitely strategized in some boardroom long before you downloaded the app. Keep reading »

Well, This Is One Way To Confirm You’re Dating…

Model Cara Delevigne has confirmed the rumors that she’s moved on from ex-girlfriend Michelle Rodriguez with actor Jack O’Connell in the most subtle way possible — posting a photo of his neck covered in hickies to Instagram. Are hickies back? Is this something adults are doing these days? Should I be practicing my suckling technique? [Dlisted]

About Art And Art Selfies

I keep having to revise my position on art selfies. I don’t know. I still hate the fact that most museum patrons seem to be there to say that they were there, to have the pictures to prove it; that they’re not seeing the art, they’re seeing themselves with the art. At the same time, I don’t want to fall down the rabbit hole that says “Selfies are bad! You’re so vain! How can you be so self-absorbed! Gosh!” Passing that kind of judgment is even more annoying than being a museum patron who makes the gallery attendant’s day as aggravating as possible by touching the god damned frames while you take a selfie when you know full well you’re not supposed to.

Taylor Swift’s Dad Photobombs Her Album Release

You know that moment when your parents contribute lovingly goofy photobombs to your social media stream, forever diminishing any attempt at putting out some aloof “cool factor”? The same thing happened to Taylor Swift today when her dad peeked into her Instagram frame as she celebrated the release of her new album, further cementing her status as America’s BFF. Glad her parents are as fun as she (presumably) is!

Keep It Classy While You’re Trespassing On 66 Perry Street, Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is looking to capitalize on her “Sex and the City” role as long as she can, apparently — and more power to her, but I feel like maybe there’s classier ways to do it than trespassing on 66 Perry Street to do an impromptu Instagram photoshoot for her new shoe line.

The owners of the brownstone have had enough problems with tourists that they’ve had to put up a chain bearing a sign that reads “Do NOT go on staircase please.” SATC tourists are still a problem for the block — the president of the Perry Street Association told Page Six that the situation is “intense,” adding that “people who live here get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed.” Keep reading »

Snoop Dogg Is Dissing Iggy Azalea On Instagram And Neither One Of Them Is Worth Defending

Snoop Dogg (Lion?) has been taking to Instagram this week to rip on Iggy Azalea’s looks, call her a bitch and a cunt, and try to feed into the rumors about a fight between Azalea and Nicki Minaj. Snoop’s been repeatedly comparing her looks to Marlon Wayans’ character in “White Chicks” and put up a video rant in which he said he was going to “check” her, whatever that empty BS amounts to. Azalea told him she was disappointed in him for being kind to her face in the past and an “asshole” on social media now.

Before you jump on Azalea’s bandwagon, remember that she called a paparazzo a cunt and told him she hopes he dies of Ebola just a few days ago. She’s said plenty of racist and otherwise ignorant shit on Twitter. She’s not exactly classy, nuanced, considerate, or enlightened, she’s just ducking out of this fight because it’s totally pointless. Keep reading »
