13 of the Best Celebrity Selfies

Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year is “selfie.” To celebrate, we made a list of our 13 favorite celebrity selfies to be taken in ’13.


Michelle Obama



First Lady Michelle Obama’s selfie with the first dog, Bo, was literally one of the cutest things to happen in 2013.





The selfie heard round the world: Queen Bey’s pixie cut went viral overnight.





Bad Gal Riri keeps her selfie game up-to-date with thousands of pictures of herself smoking weed. We would expect nothing less from someone who wears dog collars as part of a casual ensemble.


Miley Cyrus



Miley Cyrus has commemorated her boldest style moves with a selfie, including these freshly bleached brows and that infamous tongue.


Nick Jonas



“I never do this but…” Shhh, Nick Jonas. No caption needed. The youngest Jonas Brother pretty much shut Instagram down with this selfie.


Kim Kardashian



Speaking of shutting things down, Kim Kardashian made a major post-baby debut with this sexy swimsuit selfie. You go, girl.


Taylor Swift



The “humble brag” selfie? Bold move, T. Swift. #InstaGrammy


Jayden Smith



Jayden Smith makes this face in every selfie he takes. He also keeps his Instagram post number at a steady 666. He’s edgy.


Miranda Kerr



Even in a face mask, Miranda Kerr owns the celebrity selfie scene. We’re not surprised.


Amanda Bynes



Poor Amanda Bynes spent most of 2013 scaring the bejeezus out of anyone who followed her. These selfies were the tip of a mental-health-crisis iceberg.


Selena Gomez



Selena Gomez doesn’t mind stirring up some questions with her selfies. Who gave you the rose, Selena? Was it Justin? We hope it was Justin.


Justin Bieber



Meanwhile Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber, has been taking selfies with Jay Z and Kevin Hart. You know, casual.


Nicki Minaj



Nicki Minaj wins the year of the selfie, hands down. Not only is she posing half naked for a classic mirror shot, but the phone she’s using has a picture of herself on it. #Confidence
