So, Interview magazine has gone and done it. It has created a “Selfie Issue,” and it’s not what you expect. The photos aren’t made to look like selfies – they are actual selfies, in all of their pixelated and poorly lit glory.
Cover subjects on what is being called The #Me Issue/#Instagang are Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Zayn Malik, Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Selena Gomez and some guy named Mert Alas.
The focus of the issue is 100 of the most powerful personalities on the Internet. Agree or disagree, these are the eight people who made the cover and here’s what they can teach you about taking a selfie. Who knows? If you follow the rules, you could be on the cover of a magazine that has literally run out of ideas. Here’s what we learned:
