Ever reached the level of boredom where you’ve scrolled back through your Instagram to see what your first ever post was? Was it a picture of your cat with a good old Nashville filter (#catstagram)? An X-Pro II’d sunset pic (#sunsetlover)? A blurry basic-bitch brunch snap (#brunchwiththegirls)? Or perhaps it was a moody selfie slapped with a classic black and white Inkwell (#edgyAF).
Whatever your first post on the ‘gram was, chances are your IG skills have become way more sophisticated since the app launched 10 years ago (yes, that’s right, you really are that old). No more duck-face selfies, a distinct lack of hashtag anything #withthegirls, and you almost definitely haven’t used Nashville since at least 2012 (soz to any Nashville purists out there).
And it turns out, celebrities really are just like us – well, at least in terms of Instagram usage. TikTok user @rosiestacey15 has taken it upon herself to scroll right back to some of our fave celebs’ first ever Insta post. In fact, she’s done it for over 30 famous Insta users, including Kylie Jenner, Drake, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Shawn Mendes, Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.
And unsurprisingly, the results are pretty LOLs. From Ariana’s face on a deer (???), to Kim K eating a Maccy Ds and adorable baby faced Shawn Mendes, here are some of our favourite celeb Insta throwbacks…
