The “I’m pretending to sleep but actually I’m totally awake and taking this photo myself” selfie has become ubiquitous, and has spawned many a hilarious meme in which the perpetrator has been caught by an unfortunately placed mirror, revealing they are indeed lucid and photographing themselves pretending to sleep. Celebrities have caught onto this craze despite it being glaringly obvious when one is taking one’s own selfie, eyes closed or not.
The selfie is now ubiquitous on social media, so much so that its greatest proponents have started mixing it up, and finding bold new ways to self-photograph. The latest craze in selfie-land is to take your body, cell phone and reverse it — that’s right, we’re now taking it from behind. With Kim Kardashian kicking it off, a whole slew of celebrities have started capturing their perfect tushes in their gratuitous selfies.
