It was only a matter of time! Now, all the narcissistic Millennials have a place to go for the things which "really" interest them...themselves!

Unbelievable!!


Does anything scream 2017 more than the news that a selfie museum is coming?

The Museum Of Selfies is opening in LA next month…and charging visitors $25 a ticket.

The attraction will show selfie-inspired art and will also have plenty of areas designed to look good when visitors want to take their own picture.

For any “Game Of Thrones” fans, there will also be an iron throne made up of selfie sticks.

The co-founders came up with the idea because they reckon the modern museum-goer doesn’t just want to look at art —.......

If today was April 1st I'd feel much happier about this.

Meh. If people want to go there and pay to get in, so what? If other people don't want to pay to go there, so what again?

A "Look At Me!" museum. Coming from a generation that posts pictures of what they eat and get 100k followers, I'm not at all surprised.
Instead of Millennials, can we just call them Narcissists?

Is it perhaps a sense of "self" or a generation of people that can't get over themselves?

I remember the days when "I wuz here" was all you needed to feel established.... in the local hole in the wall bar's bathroom.

Sure, but there's a whole generation of them!

I wonder if one of the Kar"trash"ians is the museum's honorary mascot!

The epitome of narcissism.

Color me cynical, but the mere fact it exists speaks volumes about what's important in today's society.

Fail-Book probably funded this...them, or instafame.

"Here's a selfie of ME setting myself on fire and jumping off a bridge. Cool, huh???"

Would some of you believe me when i stated that i never made a selfie in my entire life? The whole sharing everything of your private life with strangers part is completely eluding me. I will probably never understand the appeal of it.

So you don't like certain forms of expression, oh well.

I'm not a fan of modern art or experimental jazz but I'm not going to tell other people not to enjoy it if that's what they like.

Can't speak to who took the picture, but I can tell you it's not a real picture! The hat is photoshopped.

Look closely, you'll see.

Heh, I took one ONCE, at my parent's request (they said they had pictures of everything BUT me).

I honestly felt dirty, like I needed a shower, afterwards! LOL!

I disagree. A lot of People died while making selfies. Granted it was their own fault but listening to jazz is not deadly.

I'm not telling anyone what to do, or not do.

Just making an observation and expressing my opinion about it based on a news story.

A lot of people died walking on high wires without a net or jumping off bridges with giant rubber bands. Not seeing the corollary.

Let me rephrase then, I wouldn't mock anyone who wanted to go to a modern art museum if that was there thing, even though it's not mine.
