The World’s Most Powerful Selfies

Features

/ March 3, 2014

Oprah Winfrey posted her first selfie on Twitter, adding to the list of influential people on earth who’ve taken a narcissistic snapshot of themselves for the public. The world famous talk show host got half of her face and all of actor/rapper Idris Elba’s grunt in the pic. Or as Oprah would call him, “Idris Elbaaaaaaaah!”

Oprah’s tweet barely touches the impact of President Obama’s “Selfie Gate,” the time he flashed a smile with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s funeral. Flip through for more selfies (and usies, aka group selfies) that have more power in them than an Energizer Bunny family reunion.
