The best part about microblogs (AKA digital platforms like Twitter and Instagram, which limit the length of a post) is that they give people a chance to share parts of their personalities that might otherwise go unnoticed IRL. When it comes to celebrities, this means we get to know them in more intimate ways. For example, the Dalai Lama’s Instagram account shows a side of the religious figure that is definitely unexpected. He’s hilarious!
Along with the Dalai Lama’s sense of humour, here are six more of the best posts of the week.
The Dalai Lama gives Instagram comedians a run for their money
As well as being the preeminent spiritual leader of Tibet, it turns out the Dalai Lama’s got jokes too. We might have gotten a glimpse into his humour when John Oliver interviewed him, but his Instagram is where the real gold is. Beard pull!
Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine knows the words… mostly
The only thing better than Adam Levine’s unimpressed face is James’ on point response. It’s a remix, bro! Actually, now that we’re talking about it, can we get an acoustic version of Animals? Pretty Please?
Tom Holland’s friend and brother play dress-up in Tom’s Spidey suit
If there was ever any doubt about how difficult it is to get into these skin-tight superhero suits, it’s wiped out by this video. It also just makes you want to hang out with Tom Holland and his crew.
Kim Kardashian and the Cash Me Outside girl meet up
This one is a little mind-blowing considering Danielle Bregoli has slammed the Kardashians in the past. Then again, neither of them really look too thrilled about the meeting. Why does this picture even exist?
DJ David Guetta pranks his sleeping brother
When you’re on vacation, for example in Ibiza where the Guettas are, you should know better than to be the first to fall asleep. This video gets funnier and funnier the more you look at the assortment of items David and his friends have stacked on top of his brother, Pilou.
Gwyneth Paltrow has a new makeup artist
TBH, the pic of Gwyneth getting her face painted by her niece is super cute and all, but the most intriguing part of this post is the caption. Since when did Gwyneth Paltrow, of all people, start using the word “lit”?
HELLO, BEYONCE HAD BABIES!!!
There’s only a small chance you may not have already heard (Hi Mom!), but Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed twins Sir and Rumi into the world a month ago, but only just revealed the cuties to the world this week via Bey’s Renaissance painting of an Instagram post. Bey, out.
