Why Instagram is making the leaked celeb image obsolete (NSFW)

Cause of Rihanna basically.

Here’s @badgalriri thanking Miuccia Prada for her latest gift of sexy S&M thigh high garter belted boots (yes, they exist).

Note the 314 THOUSAND likes.

And here’s John Legend’s fiancée Chrissy Teigen (who is amazing and hilarious btw and if you don’t follow her you should go NOW and follow her on Twitter, Instagram and her blog www.sodelushious.com) having someone spray her down (with water, oil, self tanner? This is my brother’s DREAM JOB btw. Every time I am involved in a fashion show he asks if I need extra “oilers” backstage.) in what I can only presume is preparation for a photoshoot.

Now we’ve all seen Rihanna naked so many times that it’s no longer headline news. Now it’s more about her new creative ways to be naked. But fully naked Chrissy shocked me a little, and yet didn’t shock me at all (she’s a friend in my head so I feel like I know her).

As a human when I see pics like this my first instinct is always to judge. But as Kathryn, my second instinct is always, “Damn I wish I could do that.” Lol. Yes full on envy and not of these ladies’ amazing bodies either.

I think Rihanna herself said in a recent interview, “I’m posting pictures of myself … To tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra shit by being dishonest?”

Social media has let us into celebrities’ lives in ways that no one could ever have conceived even 10 years ago and I think it’s refreshing to see an honest representation, even if it’s a little crazy … or naked.

So, if you had an amazing body, a kajillion dollars and could never be fired would you be on Instagram naked too? I sure know I would…lol
