In the picture-perfect life celebrities portray on social media, it’s easy to get lost between reality and fiction. But if something looks too perfect to be true, the sharp-sighted viewers know that it’s probably false.

It turns out that too many celebrities are guilty of editing their pics of social media despite often claiming that they’re against unrealistic beauty standards and for a healthy body image online. But if that was true, this huge collection of social media fails: A-list edition wouldn’t exist.

From warped body parts to ‘slender man’ hands, from bent backgrounds to selfies airbrushed into oblivion, the craziness is beyond limits.

My sister uploaded a photo of me and her once to her social media. First annoyance is I repeatedly ask her not to, but she does it any way. Then I realised it was filtered, as she’d sent me the original. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed, as she felt she had to make me look better before she could post it. She has her own insecurities I get that, but she got rid of my frown lines and whitened my teeth and other things. Can’t exactly put it into words why it made me feel so awful but it made my already photo and social media hating worse.

People’s obsession with influencers can be traced back to our enduring fascination with celebrity culture in general In a previous interview with Bored Panda, David Schmid, an Associate Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of English at the University at Buffalo, explained that our fascination can be partly explained by the fact that our culture teaches us, both implicitly and explicitly, that celebrities are role models and we should strive to be like them.

Can we get these Kardashians off the planet? They can have Mars. They offer nothing to humanity.

Prof. Schmid, who’s also the author of "Natural Born Celebrities: Serial Killers in American Culture," argued that celebrities seem to be “more attractive and successful than us, not to mention a lot wealthier, and so we should want to be like them.”

Interestingly, we also realize that the opposite is true about celebrities since they appear to be ordinary people. “Especially when they mess up, go through a divorce, have problems with drink and drugs, etc.,” Prof. Schmid explained. “So part of our fascination with them derives from this contradiction: they are both exceptional and ordinary,” he said.

I don't get this. Are they doing this themselves and for the first time? I think not. That's gotta be done by professional artists, right? So... WTF?

Moreover, “The internet fosters a sense of intimacy with celebrities that we find very appealing; we feel like we share in their everyday lives and feel part of a community of people who also follow celebrities.”

“This sharing and community are powerfully attractive forces in a culture where anxiety and isolation impact so many people,” Schmid told us previously. In fact, he argued, celebrities compensate for the unsatisfactory aspects of our own lives.

For those who’re wondering if it’s possible to become too invested in the lives of famous people, in his opinion, Prof. Schmid confirmed that’s possible.

On the other hand, if we become too invested in the lives of celebrities, we may end up lost in a toxic fandom. “Everyone's familiar with the consequences of toxic fandom, including cyberbullying and even turning on your favorite celebrity when they disappoint or 'betray' you in some way,” Prof. Schmid said.

Moreover, he explained, “our expectations of celebrities become unrealistic, and when that happens we can easily cross over from reality to fantasy, with all kinds of potential negative consequences.”
