Ahhh, the backbreaking 'Belfie'!
Just when you thought you had seen it all, the word ‘Belfie’ gets added to the dictionary. If you’re not even sure what a ‘Belfie’ is let me clear it up for you. The ‘Belfie’ is a variation on the ‘Selfie’ and it involves the derrière.
Instead of the photograph solely featuring just the persons face it is a self-portrait featuring their backside. The 'Belfie' shot into the limelight back in 2012 when celebs such as Cheryl Cole, Kylie Jenner, and Kim Kardashian started to post them on social media. Most people seem to think the 'Belfie' is typically a female thing to do but a few male celebs such as Justin Bieber decided they wanted in on all the bum-related action, *rolls eyes*.
With the rise of the 'Belfie' many manufacturers wanted to cash in on the new craze, hence the invention of the Belfie stick, yeah it’s a thing! These things are very similar to the Selfie stick except they feature a bendable stick, enabling a person to position their back side without looking like they are breaking their back to take the picture.
Below are 15 celebs giving it their best shot at the infamous ‘Belfie’.
15 Cheryl Cole
Ever since Cheryl Cole had her cheeks tatted she’s eager to get them out at every opportunity. Most men are a fan of tattoos, but a full butt cheek tattoo just really doesn’t do it for me, I like to see what’s hiding underneath. I am happy that Cheryl Cole has started to put on some weight since having her baby because before that she was starting to look like skin and bones. Everybody looks better with some meat on them in my opinion. She was one of the first celebs to emerge out of the ‘Belfie’ scene but I don’t know how much of a ‘Belfie’ I consider this to be. To add to her questionable ‘Belfie’ the singer decided to name her baby "Bear Payne", I mean come on, what kind of name is that! I couldn’t believe it when I hear the news I thought they were joking. I feel sorry for the children of celebs all the weird and wonderful names they give them are sure to come back and bite them in the butt in the future. What’s wrong with a good old traditional name like Sarah? We’re not sure how much time Cheryl will have for ‘Belfies’ in the future but with any luck, she will give them up for good.
14 Khloe Kardashian
Now, before we get started on Khloe, there is no disputing her huge big fat ass. I used to think Kim was the one with the biggest butt, but after studying Khloe’s Instagram account I can safely confirm that it’s Khloe who holds the trophy. The controversy surrounding Khloe’s paternal father has lingered over the family for many years. Let’s be honest, she looks nothing like her sisters, but in spite of OJ Simpson's past convictions, there’s no wonder Kris Jenner wanted to keep her infidelity on the low down. Khloe genuinely does have the ass of a black girl, she used to have a much larger frame than her sisters, but in recent months Khloe has really worked her butt off to get in her best shape yet. It fascinating how she has shied away from the limelight recently moving away from her family and spending more and more time with her boyfriend. When it comes to ‘Belfies’ we would say Khloe has the better butt but Kim definitely knows how to take a good one, and she definitely wouldn’t be seen in these hideous leggings.
13 Miley Cyrus
I’ll be honest, I never used to think much of Miley Cyrus but in recent years I’ve grown to like her more and more. She’s an advocate for spreading love and positivity in the world and I think we need more people like her now more than ever. She’s been in the limelight ever since she was a kid so who can blame her for being a tiny bit messed up. She’s done all the usual phases from being a bratty famous teenager to posting selfies of herself smoking marijuana on Instagram. Although she may not have perfected the ‘Belfie’ she definitely doesn’t care what you think, so what does it really matter. She’s got the build of a man, but she loves herself and her body and I guess that’s all that really matters, she seems happy and she’s got one hell of a voice so hats off to her for trying. I never had Miley down as one for following the crowd but I guess I was wrong to even she couldn’t resist a cheeky ‘Belfie’ for her Instagram page. Compared to the rest of her photos I would definitely say this is one of the least shocking or evocative ones.
12 Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift has a crazy stupid number of followers on Instagram so of course, she wanted a slice of the ‘Belfie’ action. Taylor Swift has always had a petite figure but she dresses incredibly well, not to mention her amazing voice and songwriting capabilities. Whenever there is some sort of drama or craze brewing in the celebrity world I’ve started to notice that Taylor Swift never strays too far from the scene. If it isn’t a messy breakup, its drama involving her squad, or a clash with Kimmy K. We appreciate her effort to slide a cheeky ‘Belfie’ in here but she really should just stick to what she’s good at, writing songs and making hits! No doubt, she’s one of the best performers in the world right now, so she really doesn’t need any extra attention for a bad ‘Belfie’. I would love to know if this photo is genuinely candid or it was just an orchestrated pose to gain some extra likes and followers. Thoughts?
11 Sofie Vergara
We’re definitely not saying that Sofia Vergara is not beautiful. She is. But seriously!? Why do models feel the need to post tasteless pictures such as this? We’re not sure if she’s simply mocking the ‘Belfie’ scene, or quite clearly just not very good at it yet. The model from Columbia is considered one of the sexiest women in the world right now. If you’ve not heard of her, then where have you been hiding? Under a rock clearly. She was the highest paid actress on TV at one point. She’s worth millions and millions of dollars. With all that money we suggest, she hires a good personal trainer to get her booty in gear, or at least someone to teach her how to take a good ‘Belfie’. I mean come one, those blue leggings, and bad angle, what was she thinking?
10 Chrissy Teigen
Christine Teigen (more commonly referred to as Chrissy Teigen), shot to fame around 2010. She began her career as an American model but has since broadened her horizons and ventured into the world of Television. She is notorious for her bad ass attitude on Twitter taking on high profile political figures such as Donald Trump. She definitely isn’t one to keep her opinion to herself and to top it all off she has a cracking sense of humor. What more could you ask in a woman? Chrissy doesn’t take life too seriously, and she is always one to have a laugh wherever and whenever she can. I like that! So when the rise of the ‘Belfie’ came about we really didn’t expect anything less from her. What she lacks in buttocks she definitely makes up for in humor. Plus, she has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever seen, with the round chubby facial cheeks to go with it.
9 Kendall Jenner
Kendall Nicole Jenner has been in the limelight ever since being a young child due to the popularity of her sister’s TV reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians. It can’t have been easy growing up in such a scrutinized family with no escape but the young Jenner has handled it gracefully. It seems in recent years that she has chosen to go her own way and pursue her career in modelling, and hats off to her, she’s aced it! Unlike her other sisters, Kendall wasn’t necessarily blessed with all the curves but she is definitely the most natural of the bunch. Desperate to pave her own way in the world she decided to put herself out there and post a 'Belfie' of her own to rival those of her sisters. I hate to say it, but I definitely think she should have sat this one out. Due to the nature of her career, I highly doubt that Kendall Jenner eats the same amount as the average person, therefore she lacks in curves and often resembles an ironing board much of the time. She captioned this picture art and crafts but maybe something like jeans and a flat ass would have been more suitable?
8 Cara Delevingne
Cara Jocelyn Delevingne took the world by storm when she won model of the year back in 2012 and 2014. Famed for her big brows and chiseled cheeks it proved all too much for the star and she began to shy away from the limelight. We all started to think she was going off the rails when she shaved all her hair off, but it seems she is just not one to conform to convention. She has made an epic come back and added yet another string to her bow by taking on the world of Hollywood. There seems to be no end to her talents she’s officially a model, actress, designer and now singer. Whatever next? Despite all of her talents, it seems that ‘Belfie’ taking isn’t one of them. She’s always been an advocate to love the body you’re in whether you're fat, thin, homosexual or heterosexual. She captioned this photo ‘bottoms up’, but we are struggling to see the bottom? Cara probably doesn’t care what you think, she has millions of followers and body most would kill for, so who can blame her for trying, right?
7 Kylie Minogue
I hate to be the one to say it but surely Kylie Minogue is way past her sell by date by now? Every time we think she slipped into the has-been's bracket she makes an immense comeback. She’s had her fair share of rough times lately, so we applaud her for getting back out there, but when it comes to ‘Belfies’ we think she should really stay out of the action. This looks like one of those awkward mom selfies, you know the ones where they can’t seem to get it quite right. I have the feeling she ended up taking 1000 of these before deciding which one to actually post. Not only does she look like she’s breaking her back trying to take it she hasn’t really got much junk in the trunk if we’re honest. I also feel kind of awkward like she’s my mom or something and she shouldn’t be posting stuff like this at her age. Time to hang up the heels Kylie put your feet up and have a cup of tea. Your time in the limelight is over, you’ve had your time, give someone else a chance.
6 Nick Jonas
Okay, so let's talk about Nick Jonas. He was sprung into the limelight back in 2006 when he began his career in Broadway musicals. He starred in classics such as Beauty and the Beast and The Miserables. Quite clearly he’s never been afraid to put himself out there. From there he moved into his music career when a record company signed him. He is the first male to appear in our list and you’re probably thinking what the heck, right? But this is 2017, and if a woman can do a 'Belfie' then so can a man. Kudos for trying Jonas and putting this one out there but safe to say you haven’t got much junk in the trunk mate. Pictured here on the right, we are not sure what he was trying to achieve when he posted this. Many girls swoon after Jonas because of his good looks and sexy voice, but all I can say is that I’m sure they were more than disappointed when they saw this. Time to get back in the gym Nick and start doing some squats try again this time next year and we will let you know if there is any improvement.
5 Lauren Goodger
If you don’t know Lauren Goodger then be thankful for that fact. Lauren Goodger has plagued the face of English Television since 2013. She starred in a TV series over there called The Only Way Is Essex. Which if you haven’t seen it, then do not watch it. I can quite happily confirm that it is the worst show on TV. Just a bunch of spoilt brats running around town thinking that the world revolves around, and the only thing that happens to these people is that they get caught up in some pathetic drama that nobody cares about, and it makes you want to shoot yourself in the head. She is one of those celebs that we all try desperately to forget but simply won’t go away because she keeps posting poor ‘Belfies’ and appears on those desperate celebrity shows such as Dancing on Ice when they need some extra cash. She’s had more surgery than Michael Jackson and was eliminated from the show in week 2. Says it all really. She really needs to give it up and go back to being a talentless nobody.
4 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez posted this picture of her backside on the 4th of July wishing everybody a nice day. We get it. But we're really not sure why or how she thought this was a great idea on Independence Day. We’re all for self-love on this website, but really, she hasn’t got much to be thankful for when it comes to posting her lack of a backside all over social media in the hopes of getting some extra likes. The star has one of the most popular Instagram accounts on the network with millions and millions of fans. A lot of stars mention that with all those fans comes a lot of pressure to keep their followers entertained and regularly updated, but maybe she should try updating us with something with a little more pizzazz. Stuff like this just comes across as desperate, like really, her life can’t be that boring? She earns millions of dollars and does many sold out shows a week. Show us something interesting Selena or at least learn how to take a decent ‘Belfie’. What do you guys think?
3 Niall Horan
Since One Direction split all those months ago, Niall has been trying to find his own way in the world. Fair play to the guy, he’s released a good single and seems to be getting on with things just nicely. To be honest, we’re not sure if he’s just trying to show off his good swing here, but one thing is for sure that this Irish singer songwriter was built like an ironing board. For me, it’s kind of weird when a lad wants in on the ‘Belfie’ action. We’re not sure what went on behind the scenes with One Direction but Niall seems like a nice lad, I’m just thankful he’s wearing a built and his jeans don’t reside around his ankles. He seems to dress well, but we’re really not a fan of the hair, he looks much better now he’s gone for a much more natural look. The bleach blonde Barbie look really doesn’t do him any favors. I’ve never seen Niall with a girl on his arm, although he likes to make out he’s a player in his lyrics, I’m really starting to wonder if he’s actually gay.
2 Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid whose real name is actually Jelena Noura Hadid shot to fame in recent years as a model and American Television personality. Since then she has dominated the world of fashion with her incredible photos and physique. There is no doubt that Gigi has a great body everybody knows that, but when it comes to catwalk models trying to attempt the ‘Belfie’, we’re just not feeling it. These super skinny and tall girls have long beautiful legs but no booty. If you compare photos like this with the real Gigi, there’s a high chance you will probably believe they have been heavily edited. I noticed this the first time when I saw a birthmark on Gigi’s tummy in a paparazzi shot, but the same mark doesn’t appear in any of her photos. The star is now dating the former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, they have been together quite some time and look happily loved up.
1 Justin Bieber
And finally, Justin Bieber! We couldn’t miss this one out just because he’s a man. Perhaps the most memorable ‘Belfie’ of all time because nobody expected it! Whether he did it out of good humor or simply just wanted a slice of the action, Justin Bieber went all out and bared his backside to the world. The review he got were mixed. He sparked a hilarious photo shop frenzy that caused people from all over the world to start editing this phone to make it look like he was pointing at something interesting in the distance. After deleting and reactivating his accounting and then deleting it again Justin Bieber is an unpredictable soul he definitely keeps the world on their toes with what his next move might be. I would love to know if he posted this to mock the rest of his celebrity friends or that he too just wanted to share a great ‘Belfie’. If he decides this one won’t be his last I’m sure the ladies will pray that he does a few more squats and gets a better tan next time before scaring us all for life.
