These celebrities’ first Instagram posts are just as embarrassing as yours

Selena was the worst

Instagram is the one platform on which we're free to promote our most aspirational selves. It's the same reason we prefer texting to talking — it gives us time to curate our response, free from the pressures of existing IRL.

But there was a time — a time kids today will never remember — when Instagram was a free-for-all, full of Kelvin filters, borders and that golden “12 people liked your photo” notification that would strike fear in the hearts of 2018 teens.

Posts were never archived or deleted, Facetune didn't exist and nobody thought about anything they posted, even celebs:
