It used to be that celebrities were those we all knew about, from the silver screen or newspapers, the billionaires, or inventors. They were rich and famous, they were invited to all of the parties, got all of the girls, and ended up with all the free stuff. Times have changed, and so have our garden-variety celebrities.
These days anyone with an Instagram account can claim to be a celebrity, and they all want what the celebrities of times past got: free stuff. These Insta influencers don’t have quite the same pull in stores as Lauren Bacall or Julia Roberts, and it’s not that impressive when your card gets declined for a pack of hair ties.
