The newest digital trend is custom emoji keyboards by celebrities – because everybody who’s anybody in Hollywood needs specific emoticons catered to their public personas. Since last year, when Kim Kardashian dropped her line of Kimojis, the app makes a reported $1 million per minute (how’s that for haters who say she’s “not famous for anything?”) It makes sense that other celebs, brands, and even TV shows have followed in Kim’s footsteps to cash in on the emoji trend while it still lasts. You may be asking yourself – what on Earth do I need a “Blac Chyna nursing her baby emoji, or one of Drake’s dad making it rain? Well, we’re here to tell you that there’s a celebrity emoji set for every crazy situation life deals you. So, get to downloading!
When a Regular Egglplant Just Won’t Cut It
We’ve all been disappointed by the size of an eggplant at some point in our lives. Amber Rose’s MuvaMoji comes with a variety of eggplants: from glowing to ones a little on the moldy side – just like real-life eggplants! So, if you need to tell your BFFs just how your Tinder date went – sometimes the microscopic eggplant will do the job.

Whether you’ve trashed your neighbors’ house with eggs or peed in a bucket, you admit you’ve made some mistakes. Rather than text a long-winded apology, send this Justmoji from Justin Bieber. Like Biebs, you can take the high road, even with egg on your face.

We all have those nights where we’d rather curl up with our good buddies Netflix and Hulu than our real friends.

When You’re Too Hungover To FunctionKimoji
You get a text from your Saturday morning gym buddy that says, “Hey, where are you?” You realize you were supposed to be at Soul Cycle twenty minutes ago.

When You Wanna Warn Your Roommate You’re “420 Friendly”
Living with roommates can be tough. Like that moment when you’ve been smoking that broccoli all night, but you just realized you’ve got other people in the house. Wizmoji from Wiz Khalifa has got you covered. When you’re too paranoid to text, you can send a coy little Wiz holding a pot plant, just to let your roomie know it’s going down.
When You’re So Sick of Election TalkChymoji

Text them this Blac Chyna for President emoji from Chymoji to diffuse the situation with humor.
When You’re the Oldest Person at the Party, But Still Turning Up
