It’s recently come to my attention that Thomas William Hiddleston, famous Englishman and boyfriend (coworker?) of Taylor Swift, has joined the self-service PR platform known as Instagram. Though he is not following anyone at the moment, he has uploaded a single photo. It’s not a particularly good one.
Page Ginn has a YouTube page, but most of her following is on Instagram, where she posts videos of herself taking insane tumbles in front of unsuspecting passerby—most of whom continue passing by, looking baffled.
Advertising has recently, rapidly added a new wing to its business: celebrity social media #sponcon. Reality TV stars, third-tier entertainers, and bloggers considered famous for reasons nobody can quite name get impressive money to shout out senna teas, waist trainers, and so on. But the FTC may be coming to bust up…
Stop the presses. Take a seat. I mean, really, seriously prepare yourself for the news I’m about to deliver: Rob Kardashian has unfollowed Blac Chyna, his fiancée of three months, on Instagram IN ADDITION to deleting all photos from his account including MULTIPLE images of Blac Chyna. Wow.
It seems like it was just a matter of time before our friend Ramona Singer joined the ranks of celebrities who cannot manage to properly read their sponsored content emails.
There is an enormous, bright pink wall in the Los Angeles neighborhood of West Hollywood that just about every passerby has taken a photo in front of. The wall—which encloses Paul Smith’s LA store—is the #4 location on “L.A. Weekly’s 10 Spots that have been ‘Instagrammed to death,’” and has become something of a…
I will never begrudge a celebrity for posting sponsored content. If I could make several thousand dollars for simply uploading a photo of myself holding or standing beside a product, I would do it all the time. I would skip to the bank after receiving my checks. I would post so much sponsored content that I would…
Stop. Sit down. Stand up. Sit back down. Slowly! It’s time to pick up a few lessons about social media, naked photos and new journalism from the tech prodigy Kim Kardashian.
Following his performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, Justin Bieber posted a very moody message on Instagram, accompanied by an equally moody scene of sheep roaming around some lush, I dunno, Irish (???) countryside at the foot of a castle.
I know that you have many things on your mind, so thankfully I am alleviating the stress caused by your top priority: indeed, Scott Disick’s Instagram account is now #fail-free.
One rule of thumb to remember when you’re being paid to scam people out of their money through Instagram product promotion is to make a semi-respectable effort to look like you actually use the product in question. Our friend Scott Disick apparently did not get that memo.
“Idle hands are the devil’s workshop,” goes the saying, but in Tom Lenk’s case, the workshop has produced an entire Instagram feed’s worth of recreated celebrity outfits. I don’t understand it, but I also don’t hate it?
I can’t say that the possibility of Secret Agent Kim ever crossed my mind, but the world is wide and full of wonders.
We may or may not be witness to Justin Bieber’s personal, emotional, and intellectual renaissance. He is throwing off those chains, man, just like someone told him this dude named Karl Marx (or is it Carl Marks?) once did. He will not be oppressed by your selfie sticks and your photo filters anymore. No, Justin Bieber…
I assume that one of the most frustrating things about being famous—and I’m talking A-list, Obama is aware of you, Ellen and Jimmy Fallon love when you drop by their shows and play games with them famous—must be all the unexpected run-ins with fans. There you are, walking the 40 feet from where the Uber dropped you…
If you’re following a collection of stars, reality TV stars, aspiring stars, and used-to-be-bigger stars on Instagram, you might have noticed a pattern: Lots of posts promoting “detox teas,” or “teatoxes,” which promise to fight bloat and help you lose weight fast. They’re suddenly everywhere. Why?
Alleged large dick-haver The Game has taken advantage of all the attention he’s gotten from showing his penis print on Instagram by launching a line of men’s underwear.
Khloé Kardashian sure went there with this Lena Dunham meme! On Instagram! She may have done so elsewhere, too—I’ve been staring at “Read my damn Gina on my app (link in bio)” for the past seven minutes, and while I don’t know what it means, it can’t be good for Ol’ Lena—but she definitely did here, which is to say…
