The internet was made to be broken, and who can do that better than celebrities?
When it comes to social media, celebs know exactly what they’re doing (in most cases) and they are more than often totally addicted to attention and reactions from their fans. When you take that into consideration, you can’t really be surprised by the fact that some of their Instagram posts have blown up to unbelievable heights.
1. Kendall Jenner’s Side Boob
Kardashians know how to play the attention game; after all, all of their lives depend on it. Kendall and Kylie definitely learned a thing or two from their older sisters (Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney), and they’re using their knowledge to rule the world in their own little ways. Kendall caused a quite the stir on Instagram when she posted a sexy (in a subtle way) picture of herself, lounging on a sofa in a night club in a racy dress which showed off her side boob.
2. Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda Artwork
When the world’s most famous female rapper announced that she was working on a new album, her fans went crazy. However, the rest of the world joined the crazy train only when Nicki Minaj posted a very provocative piece of artwork that was set to be the album cover on (where else?) Instagram. The picture shows Nicki’s flamboyant backside in its full squatting glory.
3. Rihanna’s Lui Cover
We’re all used to seeing Rihanna’s body by now. Heck, we’ve probably seen the Barbados Beauty almost naked more times than we’ve seen ourselves fully naked in the mirror. Yet, that fact did not restrain the good people on Instagram from freaking out when the singer posted a cover of Lui magazine which featured her and her pierced nipples.
4. James Franco’s Naked Mirror Selfie
Although he’s a very talented actor and an incredible producer, James Franco is predominantly known for his off-screen shenanigans. One of the most popular ones is his naked mirror selfie, which was posted on Instagram by the actor himself. The picture shocked everyone on this social media platform, as it showed Franco naked in the bathroom with his hand on his crotch. However unflattering, the photo is a good wordless description of this thespian’s attitude towards fame.
5. Kylie, The Graduate
To prove that she’s not all that different from her peers, reality TV star and socialite turned makeup mogul Kylie Jenner posted a picture of her and her high school diploma mere minutes after her graduation. The picture was captioned “I love my mom for doing this. Thank you for making this experience as normal as possible for me. Yay I graduated.”
6. Justin Bieber and The Fresh Prince
Not all popular Instagram posts are related to nudity, a racy atmosphere, or violent scandals. One of the rarest examples of popular clean content is Justin Bieber’s picture with the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith. Back in 2013, the infamous “Baby” singer a picture that warmed the hearts of many, which he captioned “Me and Uncle Will.”
7. Ellen’s Oscar Selfie Extravaganza
Ellen DeGeneres is a full-fledged member of daytime TV royalty, and she is one of Hollywood’s biggest sweethearts. However, she is also the owner of one of the most popular Instagram pics of all time. Ellen’s Oscar selfie extravaganza featuring some of the biggest A-list names in the movie business broke several records, and it’s still talked about even a couple of years later.
8. Kimye Wedding Bliss
When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got together, no one expected the relationship to last. Then, when they had their first child North, no one thought that there was ever going to be anything more to the story. And then they got married in a blissful ceremony, shocked us all, and carved the image of them saying “I do” in our brains forever, thanks to the official wedding Instagram photo posted by Mrs. West herself. Oh yeah, they had another kid, if you somehow failed to notice.
9. Selena’s Coca Cola Sip
You know you’ve made it when the lyrics of your song are on a Coca Cola bottle, at least by official capitalist standards. But why is this photo such a hit on Instagram? Sure, Selena looks great in the photo, and so does the bottle of Cola, we guess… Yet, the true mystique of this insanely popular Instagram photo lies in the fact that no one knows why is it so popular exactly.
10. Kendall’s Hair Hearts
The Kardashian clan knows which pics are perfect for Instagram, but no one chooses so wisely as Kendall (thus, she landed on this list two times!). The socialite’s most popular Instagram pic shows Kendall lying on the floor in a white laced dress, with her luxurious hair styled in several hair hearts. Easy yet lovely – just like Kendall.
11. Beyoncé’s Maternity Photo
Naturally, the biggest celebrity Instagram explosion was constructed by the Queen herself – Queen Bey, that is. Beyoncé Knowles Carter doesn’t do anything like the rest of the world, so when she decided to share her joyous news of being pregnant with twins she took to Instagram and simply posted a maternity photo with a sweet caption. Less is more, indeed!
