Before the Kardashians, and before it was cool to take photos of yourself and post them online, Paris Hilton proves she did the selfie first. Hilton heirs Paris Hilton proves she invented the selfie.
If you Don’t believe Paris Hilton, then read on and see the proof…
CelebNMusic247.com has to tip our hats off to Paris Hilton, because as far back as we can remember, no one was posting selfies until Paris Hilton did it.
Not to mention, Kim Kardashian was watching Paris Hilton at all times and taking notes on how to be just like her. How do you think she got so smart about selfies?
We hope you didn’t think Kim Kardashian was the first. She’s no queen of selfies, she a knock off version of the real deal Paris Hilton.
Paris Hilton took to Twitter posting a throwback pic she claims is the first example of the photo capturing trick.
In May of 2017, the DJ-and-businesswoman claimed she was the first person to popularise the technique of turning your camera on yourself to take pics. Paris claims that she’s been doing it since she was a child.
Yes, we get that, but we too used to do that, the only difference is that Paris Hilton published it online for the world to see. So in essence that would make her the first to publish a self photo digitally.
To add more evidence that she was the first to create the online sensation, the “Selfie,” Paris posted two throwback snaps on her Twitter account from 11 years ago which shows her with pal Britney Spears looking into her camera-phone.
Along with the 2006 image, her accompanying tweet read:
“11 years ago today, Me & Britney invented the selfie! (sic)”
Paris post has so far garnered almost 150,000 likes and over 43,000 re-tweets but some of her followers replied to the socialite to accuse her of lying.
Though some believe that Madonna posted the first genuine selfie back in her 1985 movie ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’.
Another duo posted self photos in the iconic 1991 road movie ‘Thelma and Louise’ which shows the two lead Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in character taking a Polaroid of themselves.
One Twitter user claimed the first genuine selfie was taken by Madonna in
Paris boasted to W Magazine that her rise to fame in the 2000s with her best friend Nicole Richie kick-started the modern day social media celebrity phenomenon.
The 36-year-old said:
“If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it. I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera.”
Recalling her journey to stardom, she added:
“We started a whole new genre of celebrity that no one had ever seen before. Nowadays, I feel like it’s so easy becoming famous. Anybody with a phone can do it.”
Regardless, Paris is still the first to post a “Selfie” online for the world to see. Madonna did it in a movie. It wasn’t posted online. And Geena Davis and Susan Saradon did in their movie, so that one doesn’t count either because they’re Polaroids.
Selfies are a digital media platform created online, not by self Polaroids.
Bottom line Paris Hilton is the one who posted the first selfie unless one of our readers can prove her wrong.
