Karl Lagerfeld, jewel in the crown of humanity, recently told The New York Times (opens in new tab) he hates it when plebeians sidle up to him and dare to use their front-facing cameras near his person.
"I don't do selfies," he said. "But other people do, and they all want to do selfies with me. No, no, no. Thank God, Sébastien, my assistant, he's mean to the people in the street, mean and rude. I'm a nice person."
Well, just because your job depends on pleasing the masses doesn't mean you have to like them, I guess. Here, we've compiled a shortlist of celebrities who've refused to take selfies in the past, just so you know which ones to admire from afar—or perhaps with a nice tweet.
Biebs just looooves to spit the truth these days. First, he spilled the beans about why his and Selena Gomez's relationship fell apart (opens in new tab), and now, he's revealing how much he hates taking photos with screamingg fans—via Snapchat, of course. "If I'm walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking to take a photo...if I don't respond, if I continue just walking, the likelihood is I don't want to take a photo at that moment." Duly noted.
Lies, Karl! LIES! Unless Kendall's pretending to take one using a stunt phone and doing this for an ad campaign is somehow not appalling to Karl, in which case, you do you, buddy.

Her face is just like, "Are you kidding me with this right now."
Lil Jon always tells the truth. In this case, it is that he doesn't care to share a screen with a YouTuber. (FYI, iJustine's caption was, "That time when Lil Jon wouldn't take a selfie with you, but took photos with everyone else around you 😂😂😂 dying. I was told to turn down #irony.")

To be fair, she'll be nice about it when she basically tells you to go away.
Poutiest for last! Maybe he's thinking about how the Super Bowl, too, is like an ex-girlfriend (opens in new tab).
