Pizza, Cloud and a Bee: The Emoji Obsessions of 8 Insta-loving Celebs
MILEY CYRUS: THE PIZZA SLICE
The Obsession: It's no secret: Miley loves pizza. From posting pizza-themed fan art on a daily basis to showing off her bed decked out in pizza sheets at any opportunity, it makes total sense that Miley uses the pizza slice emoji with wild abandon.
The Bottom Line: Do not get between Cyrus and a slice of pizza.
ARIANA GRANDE: THE CLOUD
The Obsession: Considering her Instagram profile has seven fluffy cloud emojis – and she captions photos with them constantly – Grande clearly has strong feelings about condensed water vapor … and we desperately want to understand why. The clouds make sense as a caption for her #darkskyparadise picture, as clouds result in dark skies. Then again, the clouds could refer to how angelic she is (she loves the angel head emoji, too) – why else would she caption this stunning shot of her in a white dress with a cloud?
The Bottom Line: Ari is a celestial being.
NICKI MINAJ: THE KISSY FACE
The Obsession: From the success of her album The Pinkprint and the launch of her world tour to landing a major fashion campaign as the face of Roberto Cavalli, the rapper's on a role. Naturally, Minaj has been showing lots of love and appreciation to her fans via Instagram, upping her already excessive use of the kissy-face emoji.
The Bottom Line: Nicki feels #blessed.
SNOOKI: THE FLEXED ARM
The Obsession: Ever since Snooki's wild, boozy days on The Jersey Shore, the reality-star-turned-something – Etsy crafter? Podcast host? – has made fitness a huge priority, second only to her growing family. The self-described "fit, proud mom" regularly posts pics and videos of her workouts captioned with the flexed arm – usually several in a row.
The Bottom Line: Working out is the new going out for this mom of two.
KHLOé KARDASHIAN: THE BLUE HEART
The Obsession: Like literally every member of her family, Khloé is a champion Instagrammer, posting gym mirror-selfies, booty shots, inspirational quotes, sunsets and heartfelt b-day messages with impressive regularity. She clearly has a lot of love to give, so the heart makes sense. But why blue? Red would be too classic; the blue (and purple, another KoKo fave) shows off her funky personality.
The Bottom Line: Khloé has edge.
KIM KARDASHIAN: THE RED HEART
BEYONCé: THE BEE
The Obsession: Do we even have to explain this one? Clearly, Queen Bey and ruler of the Beyhive (a.k.a. her devoted fan-base) would choose the bee as her emoji spirit animal/insect. More often than not, she uses the bee to caption her Instagram photos, not even bothering with words. (On #blessed days, she gives Insta shout-outs to her loyal "beehive" – which she spells bee emoji + the word "hive".)
The Bottom Line: Beyoncé is our queen bee.
KATY PERRY: THE SASSY-WOMAN-HOLDING-HAND-UP
The Obsession: Life imitates art imitates life, especially when it comes to Perry's frequent use of the sassy-woman-holding-hand-up emoji. Perry clearly identifies as a sassy lady herself, even going so far as to act out her emoji spirit animal's signature pose on an Instagram of her vacationing on a boat called "Sassy." (Or, she'll use the emoji to indicate her badassery, like when she admitted to being 30 and still traveling with her teddy bear.)
The Bottom Line: Katy has sass on lock.
