(The Root) — You can learn a lot about someone by taking a walk through their social media feeds. We'll be regularly examining the secret life of celebrity Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts in a series called Celeb Social.
For example: Let's pretend for a hot minute that you've been living under a rock, and you have no idea who Oprah Winfrey is. Analyzing one of her several social media accounts can give you an idea of who she is and what she's about. Let's take a look at the following pictures that Oprah has shared on her Pinterest account, and what the pictures say about her.
This tasty-looking mango chicken salad appears on Oprah's "Great Salad Recipes" board. It contains grilled chicken and mango slices (hence the name, obviously) and is drizzled in a romantic vinaigrette made of unicorn tears and the sweet blood of her enemies.
Remember those dinky little nameplate necklaces you and your mom got from that kiosk in the mall for, like, $15 when you were a kid? Oprah has one, too, only hers is $125, has an actual diamond on it and has the word "laugh" instead of her name because everybody knows her name already.
This wedge sneaker is on Oprah's "Great Buys Under $100" board. The title of this board is Swahili for "Just Kidding. Oprah Would Never Wear Any Freaking Wedge Sneakers." (Check out the comments beneath the picture — nobody is buying it.)
Above is a picture of Oprah's farm in Hawaii, which sits on the side of a dormant volcano. No, really — it says so on the "Places Oprah Loves" board. Situated inside the inactive volcano is a
dungeon workshop where Tyler Perry and his writers are chained to chairs, lavished with creative stimuli and forced/encouraged to churn out sitcoms for OWN, her television station.
So what have we learned? Oprah Winfrey is extra-rich, hangs out in volcanoes and feasts on the life force of her enemies. Wikipedia may contain a few more details, but I think you'll find that this captures the essence of it.
