Selfie Overload! Justin Bieber's New App Is Kind Of Hilarious

While Justin Bieber has recently had an, um, eventful couple of weeks in the spotlight, in the latest news, he’s shaking up the start-up scene by announcing involvement in a bizarre new app. The Bieb-funded Shots Of Me allows teenagers (its main demographic) to post and share selfies all day, every day.
The RockLive-produced app doesn’t allow commenting, which Bieber states is important in preventing cyberbullying, and pics must be taken using a self-facing camera. According to The Verge, the app works kind of like a scroll-down catalog of people’s faces (not creepy at all, right?) and allows users only to interact if they are following one another. Why doesn’t it surprise us that this head-scratching social-media site comes to us courtesy of Justin Bieber? Just what the world needs — more selfies! Will you be signing up? (The Verge)
