Over the past decade or so, Iceland has become an extremely popular destination for tourists, including photographers and filmmakers. This tourism expansion has gone so far that one of the country’s photogenic canyons, Fjaðrárgljúfur, will have to be temporarily closed to visitors. The place has been attracting so many tourists that there’s a danger its environment could be destroyed. One of the reasons for its popularity seems to be a Justin Bieber video from 2015.
In recognition of Instagram’s 5th birthday, TIME has compiled a list of the 5 most-liked photos on the photo-sharing app, as well as a list of the 5 most popular photos for each of the five years.
With over 40 billion photos shared by its 400 million users, now averaging 80 million new photos and 3.5 billion “likes” per day, the competition should be fierce.
I say should because with so many users and photo you’d expect varied results, especially with more than 75% of users living outside of the USA, but that’s far from being the case.
Current events, news, politics? Not even close. “America’s First Family” are the big winners, and I’m not referring to the one living in the White House.
The singer’s lawyers have requested to dismiss a civil lawsuit filed by paparazzo Walter Lee who claims he was hit by Bieber’s Ferarri back in 2013, arguing it was Lee’s fault.
A video of the incident leaves some doubt as to the paparazzo’s claims and will kind of make you hate anyone holding a camera.
Meanwhile, Bieber tried avoiding a visit to the courthouse in another paparazzi-related lawsuit, claiming it would be too expensive for him to show up.
