HOLLYWOOD—Yes, even celebrities go on Twitter and Instagram to vent. There are plenty of stars that use Instagram sharing their pics there everyday. There’s a lot to look at, whether it’s sweet family photos or sexy bikini snaps. Trust me, some people shouldn’t be taking pics in bikinis, especially after a certain age. It’s also very addictive from shots of dinner parties to selfies to vacation sunsets, it’s surprising how much you can learn from following someone-and it’s even better when that person is famous.
If you look at certain Instagram photos, all you see are selfies of themselves. Most celebrity accounts feature impersonal red carpet photos, self-promoted streams, or are simply private, but there are some that appear to genuinely use the app as a way of sharing their daily life. Pay close attention to the ones that only post selfies, most could call it a narcissistic personality disorder.
This week it was Justin Bieber who vented and actually deleted his Instagram account after receiving negative comments about his new love interest, Sofia Richie. The Biebs has been seeing Sofia, a 17-year-old model and daughter of Lionel Richie. They have been seen together in recent weeks, though it is unclear if the two are an item. The comments on Bieber’s Instagram account were so vicious, that the popstar threatened to make his account private. He wrote, “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate. This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.” Rather than make it private or block the undesirables, who deleted his account bringing shock and awe.
Prior to deleting his account, which had over 77 million followers, the drama in the comments section made his ex, Selena Gomez take notice and also comment. Selena, wrote, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol-it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.”
Then it began, with Justin replying to Gomez: “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.” Gomez responded again: “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.” Then the final straw came, when Biebs suggested Gomez had also been unfaithful with Zayn, referring to Zayn Malik. So there you have it folks, Justin Bieber is no longer on Instagram.
Let’s look at some of the most followed celebrities on Instagram. Selena Gomez has over 95.3 million. Kim Kardashian has over 79.9 million. Kanye West who is private has 40.8 million. Cristiano Ronaldo has 73.3 million. Rihanna has over 42.7 million. Demi Lovato has over 44.6 million. Miley Cyrus 49.6 million. Lady Gaga has 18.3 million. These are some of the top celebrity accounts.
Lady Gaga and actor Bradley Cooper will co-star in a remake of the classic Hollywood drama “A Star is Born.” Cooper will make his directorial debut with the film, which also marks Lady Gaga’s first lead role in a feature film. Gaga will compose and perform new songs for the movie. You may remember previous versions starring Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand.
Lady Gaga was nominated for an Oscar for the song “Til It Happens To You.” Earlier this year, the 30-year-old won a Golden Globe for her work in the latest season of the US anthology series “American Horror Story.” Gaga took to Twitter and wrote “I’m elated to be directed by & starring w/ Bradley in this project. He’s a brilliant visionary artist.”
Rose’s Scoop: It has happened to so many of us. For whatever reason, your credit card has been declined. Now, imagine if you are Adele, one of the richest women in the world. Yes, that happened a week ago at a San Jose branch of H&M. Obviously, she has the money, according to Forbes, she is reportedly worth $80.5 million.
