There’s cocky self-promotion, like in Entourage when Turtle threw Vince that bonkers 30th birthday party where they whored out every inch of that cruise ship to advertising (some call it ingenuity), and then there’s what world-famous
butt fitness model Jen Selter pulled yesterday.
Selter rang in the Jewish New Year — L’Shana Tova, mothafuckas — by hitting the 10 million Instagram follower mark, which is no small feat, and then dropped maybe the cockiest Insta post I’ve ever seen:
She (someone in her inner circle, probably her
bangable adorable grandma) bought her the big gold “1-0” balloons, hung them on the back of a bed, then Boomaranged her throwing confetti in the air. I hate the term “power moves only,” so I won’t use it, but it’s really just such a cocky move and I respect it so much. Just mushroom stamping all the h8ers.
She followed it up with a pretty heartfelt comment.
0M ✨Words cannot describe how I am feeling right now, incredibly grateful to have so many beautiful souls following my page. You are all my motivation to continue doing what I love! Thank you so much for your support on this journey, it means the world to me. I hope with all my heart that you have found inspiration and motivation in my posts the same way I find inspiration and motivation from you. What started as just a hobby for me has turned into a career and I have many of you to thank for that! Patience, dedication, hard work and passion are the ingredients for a successful & happy life. I could not have done it without each and every one of you. Hope everyone has a wonderful week and continues to shine! I love you all!
I’m happy for Selter. She revolutionized Instagram, and I bet I could write my dissertation (when I get around to getting my PhD in social media) on how Jen Selter is the reason there’s such a thing as “the Instagram model.” I have no doubt she was the first person to get a large following because of her features, and figure out how to monetize it. And then all the girls in all the land took their iPhones, had their friends snap a pool-side pic, and away they went. A whole world of Insta-famous forest fire level smoke stacks available at our fingertips. And it’s all thanks to Jen Selter, her ass, and the social media following she’s accrued.
Congrats on 10 million, Jen. Here’s to 10 milly more.
