Instagram now has more than 150 million monthly active users! Which means that there are effectively, like, 148 million — if we’re being generous — really underwhelming accounts on the photosharing service. Among the chaff, however, there are seas of golden wheat — and by wheat we mean Instagram accounts manned by un-boring famous people and amazing artists and photographers.
As we head into the holiday season — in which our feeds will undoubtedly be flooded with snaps of blurry holiday cheer and pre-NYE breakdown selfies — MTV News sorted through the morass to find our favorite Instas of 2013.
Hit “follow” on the below and let these accounts be your guiding star into the New Year.
If you think Tyler’s music videos are trippy, you obviously have yet to check out his Instagram. Creepy dolls, weirdo illustrations and selfies galore — click “follow” post haste.
When it comes to Instagram, Ri can do whatever she wants — except for cuddle a Slow Loris, perhaps.
You’d think that we’d be sick of Miley by now, seeing as how she’s been everywhere this year. And you would think wrong. Copious snaps of her pups — and other chicanery — keep Cyrus as fresh as that “Wrecking Ball” jam that everyone keeps talking about.
There’s something soothing about Benny Winfield Jr.’s Instagram. Something that helps us navigate — with aplomb — this rapidly changing world. We wonder what it could be…
Macklemore, he’s just like us! In that he’s game to take a selfies with every.single.celebrity.he.meets. His collection puts even our wildest dreams to absolute shame.
Most people on Instagram are boring, unoriginal hacks. Look at my nails! Check out this delicious food that I am currently ingesting! Puppy! Baby! Blah, blah, blah.
Satiregram is the perfect answer to Insta-malaise, as it lampoons such snaps by spelling out just how stupid they are — literally.
When Instagram video launched this summer, it made it possible for millions of people around the world to create boring videos of their cats gamboling about rumpled beds. It also made it possible for amazing animators like Rachel Ryle to do some pretty freaking amazing stuff, like the seasonal vid above.
Most people should not be allowed to take pictures of food because they are bad at it. Why? Because most people who purport to be “foodies” are just people who like to eat — which is everyone. And everyone is not talented.
