In her 2015 book “Selfish” -- which was literally just a compilation of selfies -- Kim Kardashian-West made the rather audacious claim that she was participating in the trend way before it was cool, and seemed to imply that she was responsible for it.
“I took pictures of myself with digital cameras when I was in junior high and high school, and I just got hooked,” she wrote. “I was always obsessed with selfies.”

“11 years ago today, Me (and) Britney invented the selfie,” Hilton wrote in a tweet with a photo of herself and pop-star Britney Spears.
It’s a bold claim, and it’s unclear if Hilton was serious or joking, but internet users responded nonetheless.
