Vampire Weekend Frontman Ezra Koenig Is "Pro-Selfie"

Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig has revealed in a new interview with Rolling Stone that he’s a big fan of people posting selfies, and explains his feelings in a surprisingly earnest way.

An excerpt from the article can be found below.

“I’m definitely pro-selfie, I think that anybody who’s anti-selfie is really just a hater. Because, truthfully, why shouldn’t people take pictures of themselves? When I’m on Instagram and I see that somebody took a picture of themselves, I’m like, ’Thank you.’ I don’t need to see a picture of the sky, the trees, plants. There’s only one you.

There’s all this bullshit about ’the younger kids today are more self-absorbed.’ It’s like, give me a fucking break! I’ve been in nursing homes, where my grandma is. I’ve seen some of the most selfish people on the planet in there. And the world that these kids are born into literally could not get more selfish. The world is so fucked-up and unequal and full of assholes. You can’t blame it on the younger generation.”
