40 Intriguing Instagram Celebrities to Follow

Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj from @aliciakeys feed
Instagram provides a very different glimpse into a celebrity's life.  It is almost as if they become their own paparazzi and provide us a behind the scenes look at their lives.  From musicians to movie stars to pro athletes to reality stars, you can find fascinating celebrities on Instagram. Unlike Facebook Pages or their own publicity-based celebrity websites, Instagram is for sharing personal photos. These celebs share photos taken by them and their friends and family. It is a fun way to increase your insight into your favorite celebrities lives. 

One of the great things about IG is that the photos are taken by the users.  They are not stock photos, or movie stills, they are shots of Taylor Swift with her cat, or Justin Bieber and his mom.  You are getting real pictures from their real life, not the make believe publicity life.   It is also not a spammy site where people try to market other websites. Instead it is purely a photo sharing site, usually by the person that snapped the photo.

But you have to know who to follow on Instagram and their IG handle.  So here is a little roadmap for you to follow some of the biggest celebrities using Instagram.  We are highlighting 40 active Instagram celebs that bring a unique and compelling flair to their photo sharing. We have included users from four distinct categories; Pop Stars, Actors and Actresses, Sports Figures and some Edgy IG Celebrities.

While IG is only accessible as a mobile app, there are several web based viewers for IG photos. Three of the most popular viewers are Webstagram, Statigram and Ink361. This can make it a bit easier to navigate and monitor people you are following, make comments, etc.  I have provided a link to one of these sites for each celebrity so you can easily follow them on Instagram.

You will notice a lot more young celebs in the list because young people have taken to IG than their older counterparts.  Hopefully over time more of the older celebrities will also start sharing photos on IG.

Sports Stars on Instagram
Unfortunately the sports world has not yet embraced Instagram as much as the Music and Acting industries. For instance, Kobe Bryant does not even have an IG account.  However, certain the stars of certain sports have picked up on IG more than others.  For instance, NBA players have become very active on IG.  The NBA Dream Team started off the NBA Instagram craze last summer during the Olympics but many more NBA stars have picked up on it since then.

Lebron James has quickly become one of the most followed celebs in the US and probably the most followed sports stars.  He has been active sharing photos with fans which feeds the fire adding more followers.

Edgy Instagram Celebrities
These IG users are very interesting to follow but they are not always for the faint of heart.  Rappers are some of the most active Instagram users but their feeds are definitely not G rated.  They often provide photos of drinking and drugs and other illicit behavior so proceed with that warning in mind.

Snoop Dogg is one of the most followed music stars on IG and posts 5 to 10 photos a day. Of course Snoop Dogg lives a very different life from all of us and it is quite interesting to watch what is going on in his life each day

Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of free pinboard hollywood celebrities.

Inevitably feelings run deep amongst so called 'babies', who just don't like that sort of thing. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of free pinboard hollywood celebrities.
