17 Done-to-Death Selfies We Love to LOL At!
Selfies here, selfies there…selfies everywhere! Thanks to the Instagrams and Snapchats of the world, everyone is busy posting selfies. Strike a pose, add a filter and up it goes on social media followed by a series of hashtags. Here are the different types of selfies (yes, there are ‘types’!) that have been done to death.
The Pout Selfie
Bipasha Basu & Nargis Fakhri
Make a duckface, tilt your head a little and click! The most common type of selfie, the pout selfie is all over the place. What’s a selfie without pouting once in a while, they say. Well, we were just beginning to have enough of girls pouting when even guys joined the bandwagon! Eeek.
The Mirror Selfie
Jacqueline Fernandez, Arjun Kapoor & Sonakshi Sinha
There’s a mirror in front of you and you’re bored. What do you do? You click a mirror selfie! It’s almost like we have forgotten how to look into the mirror without clicking a selfie. Tip: Turn the flash off for god’s sake!
The Foodgasm Selfie
Bipasha Basu & Kareena Kapoor Khan
The mouthwatering food just arrived on your table but no, before you pounce on it, a selfie is a must! It’s crazy how the first thing we do on seeing food is no longer eat but click!
The Bathroom Selfie
Believe it or not, the bathroom seems to be the most loved place for clicking selfies. Never mind the poor lighting and ‘not so flattering’ environment. Just a tip, next time you take this one make sure the pot isn’t visible at least.
The ‘Look, I Work Out’ Selfie
Sonam Kapoor & Sonakshi Sinha
They must have just entered the gym and before they even start working out, they have this dire need to tell the world that they work out—so out comes the camera and there! We’re sure that helps them gym better. No?
The Goofy Selfie
Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh
Once in a while, amid the duckface selfies, come the silly face or goofy selfies which have people making funny expressions trying to look ‘cute’. Oh, well.
The Vacation Selfie
Priyanka Chopra & Sonakshi Sinha
You’ve barely slept and you’re dying for a vacation. Just then you decide to log in to Facebook for a while and there it is, some friend of yours posting pictures of herself holidaying on some fancy beach or exotic destination. Damn. How much you hate the vacation selfies!
The ‘I Met A Celeb’ Selfie

Move over autographs, enter selfies with celebrities! What’s an autograph when you can get a selfie clicked with your favourite star, right?

Selfies coupled with public displays of affection give you couple selfies which always get people aww-ing! Well, it is cute until you get an overdose of them. Then it’s just nauseating.

Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres’ popular Oscar selfie, everyone from Bollywood stars to random people is clicking group selfies! Yes, a party isn’t over without getting a groupie clicked.
The Pet Selfie
Alia Bhatt & Sonam Kapoor
This is the selfie where the pet also gets dragged along. There you are trying different poses and that poor pet of yours can’t wait to get out.
The Feet Selfie
Anushka Sharma & Priyanka Chopra
You’ve clicked a selfie of almost everything and are wondering what next—and then you see your feet! Ah, the feet selfie, also known as ‘I don’t have anything interesting to click hence make do with my feet’ selfie.
The Hulk Selfie
How much we hate it when our timelines get flooded with pictures of half-naked guys showing off their so-called abs. Spare us, boys. We’d rather not have you spam our timelines with such pictures. Thanks, but no thanks!
The Pretentious Selfie
Shah Rukh Khan & Varun Dhawan
You know, when they’re taking a selfie but are pretending not to? Yes, those ones! The silliest of the lot, these selfies are usually characterised by people looking elsewhere and smiling. Oh (not) so candid, we say!
The Collage Selfie
Nargis Fakhri & Neha Dhupia
Say hello to these self-obsessed people who have all the time in the world to make a collage of their selfies and what
they’re wearing! Sigh.
Amitabh Bachchan’s selfie on India’s Got Talent
What’s this, you ask? When people take a selfie of a selfie. Why on earth would people do that? Even we are trying to figure that out. Tell us when you get to know.
The Selfie Fail
These are the funniest selfies! This happens when people are so engrossed in taking a selfie that they don’t realise what’s around them—and then it’s embarrassment galore! Sonam Kapoor’s makeup artist uses a toothbrush for doing her makeup. That’s what this picture tells us!
