The "Selfie" - Narcissim Par Excellence

The selfie (a self portrait, typically taken from your cell phone) is probably narcissism personified. It's harmless enough, certainly - you take a few selfies, put them on Instagram, Facebook, etc. No harm done. But some folk seem to take these things SO seriously. I just saw how Rihanna, for example, has a dedicated "selfie-taker". Wait, what?
Your selfie today isn't your selfie yesterday, so you're obliged to ensure that your newest look is a complement to -- and an advancement on -- your yesterday look.
Those who reside permanently at the top of the world understand this. In a touching acceptance of their own imperfections, they are realizing that they can't trust themselves to capture their best self-image.

So, if we are to believe The Daily Mail, they are designating specific individuals to be their selfie-expressionists.

The Mail dubs them "Instassistants." This, though, is a touch degrading. These people are artists, under pressure every day to show a star's very best side. And some days, this can surely be very difficult.
NOT Rihanna...
