Meet The Instassistant, Rihanna’s Secret To The Perfect Selfie

Have you mastered the selfie? No fear if you haven't, as it seems that the true masters of this modern art form are getting a little help from their friends. Yes, the celebrities who love to share those not-remotely-staged moments of their private lives on Instagram aren't producing photo magic on their own.
The Evening Standard nicknamed the person, who helps the likes of Rihanna and Heidi Klum achieve 5-star selfies, as an "instassistant." Don't rush to see if this is an actual job you can apply for though. This role is only available to the men and women in the superstars' inner sanctums. For Heidi Klum, it's her mother taking those slightly risqué pics of her daughter, while RiRi depends on childhood chum Melissa Forde to take some of her more "personal" poses.
So, tell us: Would you enlist your friends to take those off-the-cuff selfies that let the world know what a good time you're having? Or do you prefer to keep your selfies to yourself. To the comments section with your answers, please. (The Evening Standard)
