What an honor!!
While Miley Cyrus started the twerk movement this year and brought the dance craze along with the world into every household around the world, it seems as if that wasn't enough for "twerk" to be declared the word of the year!
The people at Oxford Dictionary chose the word "selfie" to bestow the honor of being the International Word of the Year!
Although there were a number of terminologies added to the Oxford Dictionary this year, one of the requirements for a word to be considered Word of the Year is that it has to "attract a great deal of interest during the year to date."
Well, we think the word "selfie" has a number of celebrities to thank, starting with Kim Kardashian who set the whole world abuzz with her infamous post-baby selfie!
The world "Selfie" is defined as:
A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media.
The word first started gaining momentum in 2002 and it just became a part of everyone's every day vocabulary since then!
We wonder how many times the word "selfie" is used in a day!
Everyone should take a selfie in honor of the word today!

Our beloved book of the English word just made room for 400 new additions.
Some of the words chosen to reside among 'reciprocity' and 'tenacious' are:
Noob — That's the noob at work. Nobody really knows what his story is.
Woot — I defeated the dark prince! w00t!
At least Jessica Simpson never had to deal with this BS!!!!!
Spurs forward Richard Jefferson dumped his fiance, former Nets dancer Kesha Ni'Cole Nichols, the day before their $2 million Manhattan wedding.
Although Kesha immediately called her family and friends to cancel, Jefferson waited until two hours before the planned ceremony to notify his friends.
"He called about two hours before the wedding. It was nuts," said a Jefferson source. "He never showed up at the hotel, but all his boys were there. He gave his best friend the Black Amex (credit card) for the night."
He should have handed the card over to his ex-fiance to make amends for effing her over!!!!!
Nichols did check into the swank Mandarin Oriental in Columbus Circle on what would have been the day and location of her wedding. She was upgraded to a suite on the 45th floor with a king-sized bed and a Central Park view.
Be strong, bb!
It's nothing a mini bar and a hot new man can't fix!!!!
