30 Awesome Celebrity Selfies That Were Definitely Blasts From The Past

How long have selfies been a thing? And no, I don’t mean the Chainsmoker’s song.
And that was ages ago!
Selfies are everywhere on social media now. It seems like you cannot flip through someone's social media without seeing a plethora of selfies. Seriously, we really live in the age of social media selfies right now.
Isn’t it a surprise to find that the first selfie was most likely taken in 1839 - that's not even in the twentieth century! It started as a weird bathroom selfie. Then, as technology advanced and photo cameras became smaller, someone came up with the brilliant concept of holding the camera in front of your face.
