English professors everywhere may be reeling at the recent announcement that “selfie” will forever be a word ingrained in our lives, because Oxford Dictionary has named it the Word of the Year. Yes, you heard that right!
If you are unsure as to what a selfie really is, the dictionary defines it as:
“A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.”
In honor of the recent announcement, we must thank the dedicated Hollywood celebs who sacrifice countless hours perfecting the art of the self-portrait. Whether it be Kim K‘s illustrious ass shot, RiRi‘s ganja smokin’ selfies or Miley and her tongue –we certainly can’t get enough.
