You either love or hate selfies. I, for one, don’t care too much for them, especially the ones made in the mirror. It takes a great amount of self-love (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) to take pictures of yourself in the mirror, but posting them for others to see is quite narcissistic. There are way too many celebrities who love selfies, but that’s actually pretty great for us, non-celebrities, because we get a sneak peek into their lives and also get to laugh at/with them whenever they choose to share some private detail of their exciting lives. The web is full of good celebrity selfies and bad celebrity selfies, but then there are the worst celebrity selfies that make you scratch your head and wonder what the hell they were thinking when they posted it for the whole world to see. Let’s take a look at the top 10 worst celebrity selfies.
10. Kim Kardashian
There are things we love about Kim Kardashian and things we hate about Kim Kardashian – one of the things that fall in both of the categories are her selfies. She can post some wonderful selfies, because she truly is a beauty, but there are some things, like the picture above, that we don’t quite get. In this one she fell asleep with her glasses on while sun bathing – ouch! That actually looks like it hurts a lot!
9. Tom Hanks
I swear to God, Tom Hanks is the last celebrity I would have expected to see take a topless selfie of themselves. Never in a million years, would I have believed such a thing could be possible, but there it is: a topless Tom Hanks taking a selfie in a dodgy kitchen. Should we even ask what’s going on here? Let’s not!
In my opinion this celebrity selfie is the funniest. It’ll be long before we get another one that can match the awesomeness of this selfie. Just look at Diddy’s expression! We don’t really know how to interpret it: is it pride, satisfaction or is he puzzled? Honestly, his smile is just as enigmatic as Mona Lisa’s.
7. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has two pictures on our list and this one is the one that is least disturbing. Yes, this one! I’m not that old, really, I’m not, but what is the deal with Miley Cyrus and her tongue? I’m not saying that it’s not polite to do that (although it is), because I get what she’s trying to do – be edgy and stuff, but it’s not working for her. She’s not Gene Simmons, and besides, that’s not the way to stick out your tongue!
6. Geraldo Rivera
This has got to be one of the worst celebrity selfies ever to grace the Internet. We get what Geraldo was trying to do by posting this picture (show us that he still got it and that you’re never too old to look good), but he went about it all wrong. In the picture he looks like someone you would avoid when walking down the street. And those pink glasses! No. Just no.
5. James Franco
James Franco is the king of selfies. He loves them and he even wrote an article for the New York Times (we kid you now) about the meanings of the selfie (read it if you want to waste 5 precious minutes of your life – keep in mind that in those five minutes you would very well pick your nose), because for James Franco everything James Franco does is art, even a trivial thing such as the selfie. Especially this one in particular.
4. Miley Cyrus
This has all the elements of a bad selfie. These are: grainy bathroom photo, underwear, raised up T-shirt and the duck face. And this isn’t just any duck face, it’s the mother of all duck faces! When are these people going to understand that puckering your lips like that isn’t sexy, but extremely funny?
3. Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage is one badass mother doer and we love him, but there are some instances where he looks even more insane than he already is. Take, for example, this photo taken by someone on a plane – he looks high as a kite and if I had been in that lady’s position, I would have asked him for another take. Ok, maybe he just blinked!
We won’t get into detail with this one, but you know the whole story of what happened between Rihanna and Chris Brown, don’t you? If you’re one of the few people with Internet access who doesn’t know, then here is the gist of it: Chris Brown beat Rihanna. They broke up, some time passed and now she and Chris are special friends. I don’t think we can stop ourselves from judging, and that’s OK.
1. Amanda Bynes
This is the worst celebrity selfie in the history of selfies and to be honest, I don’t think they’ll be another that can match it. The semi-wink, the pout, the hair, the mirror, the iPhone, it’s got it all. What we’re really curious about is how can someone take a picture like that, look at it and think Hey, that’s a pretty damn good picture of myself, let’s share it online for the world to see! I mean, really?!
