8 Celebrities To Follow On Instagram To Immediately Brighten Your Day

Becca Van Sambeck
Becca is a recent Fordham grad, a former German beer hall girl, and a new Brooklyn resident who used to read the dictionary for fun as a kid. She has only gotten slightly less lame since then. She loves pugs, chicken fingers, reading and Game of Thrones.

Following your favorite celebrity on Instagram always seems like a great idea. That’s until your feed is flooded with an endless parade of stupid selfies (looking at you, Miley Cyrus! How in the world do you have all this time sit around and Instagram yourself in a wig?!) or vague promotional material their publicist clearly set up for them. Even celebrity queens like Beyonce can be pretty damn boring to follow on Instagram, which is why we’ve gathered the ones that will actually make you stop and pause as you endlessly reload your feed.

Taylor Swift: @taylorswift

While Taylor Swift’s celebrity squad and her obsession with her cats may have become a bit of a joke right now, there’s no denying that the girl knows how to use Instagram. We all want a peek into celebrities’ real lives, and Taylor gives us that (sort of). She posts pictures of her vacation with Calvin Harris and workouts with Karlie Kloss, trying to show off a life that’s almost like our own — except 25x better.

Selena Gomez: @selenagomez

Selena recently became the most followed person on Instagram, which is kind of a big “huh?” While she’s a perfectly successful pop star and actress, she’s hardly the biggest name in either field. But her Instagram is pretty engaging like how all the Instagram models you follow are. Whether her photos are of her showing off new sunglasses or palling around with a girlfriend, she offers plenty of aspirational material.


Aziz Ansari: @azizansari

If you’re looking for a celebrity account with a little more substance, look no further. Filled with artsy black-and-white shots and plenty of amazing food pictures, Aziz’s Instagram posts actually cool photos.


Amy Schumer: @amyschumer

In 2016, we all bow down to Amy Schumer. Her Instagram reflects the fact that she’s hilarious and has plenty of behind-the-scenes shots paired with witty captions. Amy’s account picks humor over aspiration, but then again, there’s always the rare JLaw sighting in her pics. What could be more aspirational than being best friends with Jennifer Lawrence?


BJ Novak: @picturesoftext

While we wish there was some more photos of him and his clear soulmate, BFF Mindy Kaling, BJ Novak takes a slightly different approach to Instagram than most celebrities. Like his handle suggests, it’s basically pictures of text, but paired with super funny, insightful captions that you’ll want to share with your friends.



Olivia Wilde: @oliviawilde

Is Olivia Wilde the perfect woman? She’s gorgeous, smart, and funny — and she makes that all perfectly clear with her Instagram. Plus she always has the perfect caption. She’s not afraid to get political either, and there’s always a ton of adorable pics of her son, Milo, as well.



James Franco: @jamesfrancotv

James Franco is a huge fucking weirdo, and his Instagram persona reveals it every once in awhile. While there’s often just a sea of promotional materials for one of his 9,000 projects, there are incredibly bizarre selfies sprinkled in there that will leave you wondering what the fuck happened to James Franco as a child.



Liam Hemsworth: @liamhemsworth

Liam Hemsworth is hot. Liam loves his dogs. Hot guys and dogs. These are the ingredients for a perfect Instagram account.
