Kim Kardashian

Social media mommy Kim Kardashian broke the Internet this year with this skimpy selfie, arguably the most talked about celebrity selfie of the year.


Amanda Bynes

This year Amanda Bynes redefined the celebrity meltdown, using a series of tweets and selfies to modernize this child star tradition. In this pic, Bynes perfectly executes the cry for help selfie using a potent blend of partial nudity and extra-strength hair bleach.


Miley Cyrus

While Miley Cyrus taking a mirror pic in pasties and a wig might seem like a fairly commonplace occurrence, this selfie is actually a Halloween exclusive. Paying homage to Lil’ Kim, this costume is a relatively classy look for the often-controversial Cyrus.


Nicki Minaj

Speaking of pasties (and when it comes to Nicki Minaj, aren’t we always?), this zen pic proves that Minaj really doesn’t need much to make a selfie: just two pasties, a handful of gold chains, and a serious sense of adventure. This snap also makes a strong argument for making “follow Nicki Minaj on Instagram” your number one New Year’s resolution.


Justin Bieber

He came, he saw, he selfie’d. 2013 was truly the year of the Bieber, as the young star sparked a myriad of controversies all over the world. Those eyes! Those abs! That intolerable aura of arrogance and entitlement!


Ricky Gervais and Conan

Ricky Gervais and Conan O’Brien bathing together is a slightly more niche fantasy than Kim Kardashian in a tiny white bodysuit. Still, we’re sure that some die-hard comedy fans embraced this sudsy selfie as a real dream come true. 



Beyoncé won Halloween 2013 this year, ingeniously dressing as an Instagram pic…and then Instagramming it. Will Queen Bey ever stop blowing our minds?

President Obama

Obama said a quick brb to leading the free world to take this silly selfie at the Mandela memorial. Our favorite part of this picture has to be Michelle’s game face; perhaps a testament to who’s really running things in the White House?


Rihanna and Snoop Dogg

In this far out snap, Rihanna and Snoop Dogg bond over their shared love for social media, child-like cartoons, and, of course, copious amounts of marijuana. According to the caption, the stars aren’t just kicking back; they’re celebrating everyone’s favorite weekly holiday, “#puffpuffpass Tuesdays.”


Wiz Khalifa

Between Wiz Khalifa and Kim Kardashian, celebs sure taught us a thing or two about parenthood this year. The rapper snapped this selfie during his son’s birth, captioning it “daddy time.”


The 'Parks and Rec' Cast

As Rashida Jones finished up her final season on Parks and Recreation, she took one last selfie for the road. One van, countless lols.
