Celebrities, they're just like us! Sometimes they waste their time on social media even though they know they shouldn't and their yacht is waiting! And if us normals catch the right famous person at the right time on the right app, sometimes they'll even interact with you there! (On social media, not on their yacht. Are you kidding me?) And I don't know about you guys, but I feel like this weekend might be the best possible opportunity to have an interaction with one of them. After all, don't you always give yourself the biggest plans for three day weekend, only to lounge around doing nothing because you're just so excited to have an extra 24 hours off from real life? I see you over there in your pajamas, frantically refreshing Instagram while you wait for your friends to wake up and talk about going swimming for six hours while you watch a Law and Order: SVU marathon instead. I SEE YOU.
And I have to assume that famous people experience the same thing, because I see them all over the internet on a lazy day off. And not just interacting with other A-Listers, either! Sometimes with normals! In the same way that platforms like Twitter and Snapchat are great ways to keep up with friends, they're also great ways to keep up with fans, so don't be surprised if you stumble across a familiar face while you're refreshing your queue. If you play your cards right, you could end up with a direct message from Ariana Grande, a shout-out from the Broad City girls, or a retweet from Mara Wilson (the girl who played the lead in Matilda, duh.) The world is your oyster, so hop to it!
If you play your cards right and are a longtime fan, Swift might just leave an encouraging comment on your Instagram reminding you that you're beautiful and to keep your head up. I'm not crying, you're crying.
Jonas is a longtime user of Snapchat, and likes to surprise his own fans by adding them on the app, then sending a photo to prove it's really him.
Hate to break it to you, but you actually missed your window of opportunity to harvest virtual carrots on the farm next to Stone's, because she had to quit Facebook on account of getting addicted to Farmville.
Over at her Twitter account, under the handle @MaraWritesStuff, Wilson refers to herself as a "tweet curator" for her habit of retweeting normals who post funny things. You could be next!!!
As we all learned from her video for "Sparks", Duff is on Tinder and looking for that special someone, so don't swipe left right away just because you assume it's not her! If the two of you match, you could find yourself on a date with Lizzie McGuire!
Baldwin might be your best bet on this entire list, as he was once willing to get kicked off a plane so he could keep playing Words With Friends. He must be really good by now, though, so seek him out at your own risk...
This is a public request for the creators of Dubsmash to make it so you can add friends and send them your videos, because I have a feeling that Lena Dunham and I would be great friends on there.
A lot of artists will tweet at or retweet fans, but Ariana Grande is one of the only celebs out there who will have extended DM conversations with people, so fingers crossed she graces you with one!
Pretty much every week, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson choose one fan's art to feature on the show's Instagram account for something they call #fanartfriday. So get to sketching, bbs!
