Celebrities all over the world had gone selfie crazy- moving from self obsessed to selfie obsessed in a competition to out selfie one another. There were plenty of boobs, bums and pouting.
Many had tried to fake the perfect photo, like the case of actress Emma Stone. She had apparently posted a photo of her completely nude online but sources close to her say that the photo was a fake.
Probably the best selfie was that of Spaceman, also known as astronaut Luca Parmitano. His selfies were of the space walks. Behind each of the photos taken, there is the vast emptiness of space with the planet earth reflected in his helmet visor.

Kim Kardashian seems to be the only one posting as many selfies of her as she possibly can on her twitter account. The last one was one her in a white swimsuit after the birth of her child with that doesn’t seem to cover most part of her behind. Many other celebrities tried to spoof her look in this photo with hilarious results.
The most adorable selfie is that of the Obama siblings taking a selfie of the two of them together at Obama’s inauguration year. There is a peace sign, face pulling and the famous duck face.
