It was Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year – defined as “a photograph taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” Now, the “selfie” is the subject of a study commissioned by Virgin Mobile Canada.
And the results are very interesting, indeed.
Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian were the top three celebrities identified by the study’s nationally representative respondents as being over-enthusiastic in embracing the “selfie” trend.
More than half of the study’s participants have indulged their inner model, equally divided between men and women, and a majority of this group is between the ages of 18 and 34.
We want you to judge for yourselves, so we’ve gathered some of the most outrageous selfies by Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian.
