We follow a lot of celebs on Instagram and Twitter because everyone knows that purposely inducing body issues makes us work out just a little harder at the gym and will encourage us to spend more money on makeup to look more beautiful. Kidding! Okay, not really. Nevertheless, we can read between the lines of celebrity Instagram and Twitter pics to see what they’re really trying to say. Here are the best celebrity pics and posts from the last week, and what they really mean…
What she posted: #goingtohell
What she meant: Seriously? I was doing this way before Miley, and I started taking off my clothes when I was an underage teen. How many scantily clad Maxim covers do I have to do before you realize that I’m a…. Wait, what do you mean you don’t remember the child star Gossip Girl image I’m trying to break away from? Look at me! Look! At! Me!
What she posted: My hair is getttttting so long
What she meant: Dear Taylor Momsen, Everyone knows Instagram is for provocative selfies taken off the stage. Gawd!
What she posted: Morning. Bags of fun by @amediumformat
What she meant: Actually, Miley, Instagram is for showing how incredibly insider you are in the fashion industry and taking Mario Testino-worthy selfies to showcase why you’re a muse in the first place. Mon dieu!
What she posted: Love you @karllagerfeld you are the one and only!!! Taken by @saskialawaks
What she meant: That’s funny, Alexa, because when I post Instagram photos, I usually have them taken by the hottest fashion photographers of the moment, like upcoming self-taught photographer Saskia Lawaks in this case, and I’m often posing with one of the biggest designers in world who just hired me to rock his runway. Did I get the memo wrong on what being a muse actually is?
What she posted: And, lastly, the moment I realized I’d forgotten to pack my Klonopin.
What she meant: Actually dudes, I prefer to use Instagram to highlight my neuroses, in this case, my dependency on a prescription sedative, as means to blurring the lines between the character I play on Girls and real-life Lena Dunham. Obviously, this weird-ass bathroom in the mirror of this purposely cliche selfie proves I’m at some hipster-ific hotspot that’s nowhere near fashion week or Taylor Momsen’s concert… which was the ultimate look I was going for.
