This Selfie Of Joe Biden And Barack Obama Is Giggle-Worthy

Joe Biden has created himself an Instagram account, and his first selfie features the veep casually hangin’ out with the leader of the free world — you know, the usual. If the inclusion of “selfie” in the Oxford Dictionary wasn’t enough of an indicator that any cool factor the word once had is over, politicians attempting to join in on the party definitely does. Oh, who even cares, this picture is too adorbs not to love. [USA Today] [Image via Instagram]

Nickelodeon Star Jennette McCurdy's "Sexy Selfie" Scandal Halts Production On Probably-Canceled "Sam & Cat"

“Sam & Cat” is apparently a popular show on Nickelodeon starring Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy. But tweens will be disappointed to learn (I guess?) that the show’s future is on thin ice and hasn’t been renewed for a second season, allegedly because the network is pissed that some sexy selfies the 21-year-old McCurdy took leaked online last month. The photos, including one in which McCurdy is on all fours wearing a thong, leaked online days after McCurdy mocked ex-boyfriend Andre Drummond’s kissing abilities on a podcast. McCurdy tweeted that she had sent the photos to one person (i.e. Drummond) but Drummond denies posting them online. Keep reading »

Teen Girl Accused Of Stabbing Her Best Friend To Death Over Naked Selfie Photos

Teen Girl Accused Of Stabbing Her Best Friend To Death Over Naked Selfie Photos

A teenage girl in Mexico is accused of fatally stabbing her best friend to death because, police suspect, the friend had posted naked selfies photos the two had taken together to Facebook. Erandy Elizabeth Gutierrez (left), 16, allegedly stabbed Anel Baez (right), also 16, a total of 65 times at Baez’s home in Guamúchil. Baez had come over to patch things up following a dispute over the naked photos, and police allege that after excusing herself to go to the bathroom, Gutierrez grabbed a knife in the kitchen and began stabbing Baez. She reportedly fled the scene and was arrested three days later at Baez’s funeral. According to Notus, Gutierrez had sent a threatening tweet (from a now-deleted account) to Baez in the weeks before the attack, writing, “It may seem that I am very calm, but in my head I have killed you at least three times.” Police are expected to charge Gutierrez with murder later this week.

Sienna Miller Says She Sucks At “Selfie Face”

Sienna Miller Selfie Face

“I’m not very good at the selfie face. I can do it for, like, three seconds and then I crack up.”

Ridiculously photogenic Nylon cover girl Sienna Miller revealed a shocking confession in the mag’s latest issue: while she has no trouble posing for the world’s top fashion photographers or striking a pose on the red carpet, she totally fails at the most basic form of cell phone photography: selfies. Her wording does beg a few questions, though. By “selfie face” is she referring to duckface? Or perhaps she’s talking about Very Serious Selfie Face; or “Oh I Didn’t Notice The Camera There Even Though I’m Holding It In My Right Hand” Selfie Face; or Slightly Angled Down To Create Cheekbones Selfie Face? Sienna, you might just need to try a new method. There’s a Selfie Face out there for everyone. [E! Online]

The Frat Boys Who Broke Into Sea World To Take Selfies With Shamu Clearly Did Not See “Blackfish”

The five frat boys from the University of Houston who broke into Sea World San Antonio clearly did not see the documentary “Blackfish,” a film about the park’s orca whales and all the people they injured or killed in captivity. Otherwise, there’s no way in hell they would have scaled the walls in the middle of the night to eat Dippin’ Dots ice cream and take selfies with the killer whales. Those of us who did see the film will never forget what happened to the gentleman who snuck into the Sea World high on drugs to take an orca joyride. Tilikum killed him. Tily and his offspring, while emotional, majestic animals under the right conditions (namely, not in captivity), are not toys to be played with. And I’m certain that they hate dumbass bros who try to takes selfies with them. Keep reading »

Selfies been getting some bad press lately, what with the revelation that teens’ selfie habits may be to blame for a massive increase in lice infestations (#YUCK). But there is one form of selfie that will always elicit smiles instead of sighs, and runs an extremely low risk of spreading lice: Muppet selfies! Yes, the Muppets finally have an official Instagram account, and they’ve been posting selfies as frantically as a 14-year-old girl who just got her first iPhone. There’s Kermit, Rizzo, Swedish Chef, and many more. No selfie from Miss Piggy yet, but I’m anxiously awaiting the glamorous, multiple-filtered masterpiece it will surely be. [The Mary Sue]
