One of the best things about social media is the unprecedented access fans get to celebs and their personal lives. And I don't mean that in a creepy, invasive way — I mean that in a "do you kids understand that we didn't have the option to casually tweet our favorite band and have them respond when I was your age?" way. And while there is nothing like a Twitter follow or a #nofilter Instagram pic toreally get some star-studded insight into the behind-the-scenes action in a celeb's life, those #LifeGoals don't even compare to the magic that is celebrities on Snapchat. For some reason, stars really let loose on that app, sharing everything from a plethora of ridic rainbow puke filters to no, this-is-actually-what-I-do-in-my-downtime-look-how-funny-I-am clips.

Though I have already talked about the beauty of 5 Seconds of Summer on Snapchat (they may or may not have been the reason I re-downloaded the app in the first place; no shame), they are far from the only celebs making good use of those Snapchat filters. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to Jared Leto is doin' it up on Snapchat, so you better get to following. You know you need these celeb Snapchats in your life...
1. One Direction (@OneDirection)
Because you might get these gems from Liam Payne.
2. Kylie Jenner (@kylizzlemynizzl)
Kylie Jenner is a Snapchat QUEEN, creating a mix of super chill "I'm just like you, lighting some candles in my sweatpants" videos right alongside those crazy glam, "look at me I'm a wealthy celeb"
3. Justin Bieber (@rickthesizzlr)
I'm here for all of this.
4. 5 Seconds of Summer (@wearefivesos)
I've already discussed, at length, what makes 5SOS on Snapchat so great. And in case you need another reason, here's Calum Hood being all adorable and stuff.
5. Nick Jonas (@jicknonas)
I mean, I'm just obsessed with that username.
6. Ansel Elgort (@anselelgort)
For gems like this selfie.
7. Ed Sheeran (@teddysdaytoday)
Please note the commentary. And yes, that is Taylor Swift's cat Olivia.
8. Ariana Grande (@moonlightbae)
Ariana Grande is all about that Snapchat filter life.
9. Jared Leto (@JaredLeto)
Jared Leto does not eff around with the pencil feature.
10. Ashley Benson (@benzo33)
Frequently featuring Shay Mitchell, of course.
11. Rihanna (@rihanna)
Rihanna with no filter is the best Rihanna.
12. Bella Thorne (@BellaThorneDAB)
Because Bella Thorne rapping to some Yeezy is a necessity in everyone's life.
13. Paris Hilton (@Realparishilton)
Because before there was Kim Kardashian, there was Paris Hilton.
SNAPCHAT FOR LIFE.
