6 Celebrities Who Absolutely Do Not Want to Take a Selfie with You

It's a matter of principle, okay?

Karl Lagerfeld, jewel in the crown of humanity, recently told The New York Times 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.

Justin Bieber

Biebs just looooves to spit the truth these days. First, he spilled the beans about why his and Selena Gomez's relationship fell apart, 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.

Karl Lagerfeld

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.

Lil Jon

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.")

Kirstie Alley

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.
