Selfie Named Word of the Year; Celebrate With These 10 Amazing Celebrity Selfies

By Josh Sorokach | 2:10 pm on November 19, 2013

Proprietor of fine words, the Oxford dictionary has officially awarded their prestigious 2013 word of the year title to — drumroll — the word selfie. Beating out such crowd favorites as “twerk” and personal favorites like “ridiculous,” “unbelievable” and “seriously,” selfie can now take its place on the locution podium behind past winners “GIF” (2012) and “podcast” (2005) and future winner “eye-roll” (2014). Bust out your noise makers, party people, we’re celebrating with these 10 amazing celebrity selfies.

1. Miley Cyrus

This was sadly not a “Party in the U.S.A.” It was a party in Ger-Man-Y, which let’s face it, is a lot less catchy.

2. Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas five seconds after snapping this photo: “Somebody needs to call the ABB-ulance because this body is sick.”

Next: Rihanna, Ian Somerhalder, and more!

3. Beyonce

Beyonce’s selfie wins our award for “Best Celebrity Selfie That Could Double as a Postcard.” We could imagine sending this to our parents with the message, “Happy Thanksgiving 2013!”

4. Rihanna

What’s the average number of selfies people take before posting? Is there an unwritten rule you need to post your first attempt?

5. Justin Bieber

It looks like 10 seconds before he posed for this selfie somebody asked, “Hey Justin, quick, what’s 43 x 23 + 8?” (Yeah, we don’t know the answer either.)

6. Ian Somerhalder

See? It’s not that difficult. THIS IS HOW YOU SELFIE, PEOPLE.

7. Zooey Deschanel

When I have bedhead I look like a tired werewolf. Zooey Deschanel has bedhead and looks like a princess.

8. Austin Mahone

Why do you look so surprised, Austin? You’re taking a picture of yourself!

9. Lea Michele

Wow. Lea Michele looks so elegant. This is the equivalent of seeing a rainbow in the landscape of instagram selfies.

10. Lady Gaga

Listen, if you can pull off the sexy Benjamin Franklin look you do it. No questions asked.

What do you think about “selfie” being named word of the year?
