The 11 Most Talked About Selfies of 2014 

In 2013, "selfie" officially became a part of the dictionary, and in 2014, they became even more mainstream. Selfies were the subject of so many top headlines this year, so who took the most memorable selfies? Kim Kardashian is only on the list once, yet they are three pics from the White House.

Click through for the best selfies of 2014.

Ellen DeGeneres's Oscar Selfie

I could have just stopped the list here. Ellen DeGeneres had Bradley Cooper snap the ultimate selfie at this year’s Academy Awards. It included Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Channing Tatum, and Lupita Nyong’o. No wonder it was the most retweeted photo of all time.

Kim Kardashian Crops Out North West

Instagram was outraged when Kim Kardashian posted this photo and cropped out her daughter North West. Kardashian resorted to defending herself on Twitter by saying, “Wait is this really news that I posted a selfie & cropped my daughter out? LOL.” She took it further by tweeting, “Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!” Apparently not…

Joe Biden's First Instagram Post

It is only fitting that the first post on Joe Biden’s Instagram account was with President Obama.

Queen Elizabeth II's Photo Bomb

Queen Elizabeth II is royally adorable as she cheeses hard in the background of these girls’ selfie. Who says the royals can’t have a sense of humor?

Teen's Selfie with Paul McCartney & Warren Buffett

This teen captioned his photo, “chillin with my homies.” No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Those “homies” are Paul McCartney and Warren Buffet. Casual. No big deal.

Katy Perry & Joe Biden at the White House

I figured this list would have multiple Kim Kardashian photos, but it does not. I hope you are pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of two Joe Biden selfies. I wonder what he and Katy Perry talked about before and after this photo was taken.

Jason DeRulo & Jordin Sparks's Bedroom Selfie

I’m still surprisingly saddened by Jason DeRulo and Jordin Sparks breaking up. Thank god we have this steamy selfie to commemorate their love.

Taylor Swift & Lorde at Brunch

Lorde and Taylor were the best friend duo of 2014. You all wish you were with them eating brunch and sipping coffee.

Jennifer Lopez & Michelle Obama

This selfie of two influential, yet very different, women made me too happy. I wonder whose idea it was to take this photo.

Jimmy Kimmel & the Clintons

Jimmy Kimmel spoofed Ellen DeGeneres’s Oscar selfie with this photo that included Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton. I wonder how many attempts they took.

Kylie Jenner & That Lip Liner

If you are not following Kylie Jenner on Instagram, I have no idea what you’re doing with your (social media) life. I am weirdly intrigued by every hair and makeup decision she makes.
