The Chainsmokers summed it up pretty perfectly with their hit "#Selfie." The egocentric craze of snapping shots of yourself to share on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook or wherever you choose to upload your photo diary is upon us and doesn't seem to be dying out anytime soon. Everyone from tweens to your cat are into taking selfies.
Here's a list of the 15 most selfie obsessed musicians on the web. These famous folks love to snap shots of their well-known mugs on any given occasion. Whether they're working out a gym, just got a new tattoo, or are just making breakfast, their multitude of followers eat these shots up like candy. Yum, yum.
In no particular order, here are the guys and gals who made the cut.
15. Miley Cyrus
Her Instagram account kind of looks like one big acid trip, complete with bright colors, trippy effects, odd facial expressions, lots of tongue, and dirty feet.
14. Justin Bieber
His Instagram consists of a lot of raised eyebrows, faux broody expressions, bare pecs, and girls. He loves taking topless shots of himself so much that he in fact funded an app for selfies. No, really. It's called Shots. Google it.
— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 29, 2014
There's lot of pouty red lips to be found on Rihanna's feeds. RiRi has a tumultuous relationship with Twitter and Instagram. Her sexy selfies were too hot for Instagram to handle and her account has been deleted, but this ultimate bad girl still gets selfless across thanks to Twitter.
12. Ellie Goulding
Goulding's Instagram absolutely indulges in some body shots, showing off her tight, youthful bod, including a not so subtle shot of just her abs. But we'll forgive her for all that tackiness because she's also made her bad hair days public with some self-deprecating shots of her messy mane.
Anyone who knows the name Usher knows how proud this sensual crooner is of his rippling stomach. He's always been ready to take off his shirt for the ladies. What we didn't know before Instagram was how he loved to cook breakfast wearing nothing more than his boxers and a smile.
10. Demi Lovato
It's no secret that Demi Lovato is a bit of a selfie addict. This girl snaps selfies anywhere, including the gym. Nothing like working up a sweat and then taking out your phone to share that damp love. We're sure she got some side eye from the chick on the treadmill closest to her.
9. Lady GaGa
Mother Monster doesn't post frequently on Instagram, but when she does take the time, it's almost always a selfie. This is no joke to Gaga, since she almost always has a serious look on her face while posing for her often creative selfies.
It's no surprise that RiRi's alleged ex is on this list. Selfie lovers attract one another. Champagnepapi posts a ton of self-indulgent snap shots. He's even got the whole pouting move down. Maybe Rhianna taught him that one.
Another pouty-lipped lady, Beyoncé's Instagram is filled with posed shots, high fashion, quotes, and selfies. We will give her this, even her sexy shots are classy more than raunchy, protecting her from the Instagram censorship trolls.
6. Nicki Minaj
Not exactly a shy girl, Nicki Minaj loves to show off her assets, especially her derriere of which she has plenty of shots. However, we doubt she's flexible enough for those to be selfies... Though the occasional, innocent and clean-faced selfies do make an appearance, they're not what make her Instagram so popular.
5. DJ Khaled
If you follow the We the Best and Maybach Music Miami mogul on Instagram, your feed just might be blowing up all day long. With close to 1,0000 posts on his page, DJ Khaled's got plenty to choose from to comment on, but he's most notorious for his video selfies.
4. Jared Leto
Rock God of our hearts, Jared Leto's been sporting a sort of Jesus Superstar look while on tour. He has tons of selfies on his Instagram for the countless women and men in love with his beard and ombre locks. You can also check out his failed attempt at making vegan pancakes, his countless pictures in very tight pants, and one of him sitting upon his game of thrones.
3. Selena Gomez
This Disney sweetheart's Instagram is probably no different than that of any other popular teenage girl, well, except for the fact that other celebs frequently pop up in a lot of her selfies, not to mention the ones she takes while surrounded by a crowd of her fans.
2. Taylor Swift
We've actually seen comments on the web about how Taylor Swift practically owns Instagram because she posts so many pictures. Amongst the kittens, flowers, and fresh baked cookies are selfies with her and some of her famous friends, including Lorde and Ed Sheeran.
1. Chris Brown
Breezy's Instagram is full of shots of his kicks and other swag, group shots with friends, lot of shirtless pics, and tons of selfies, although he just might be more in love with his sneakers than he is with himself.
