We usually assume that only young folks and people who are trying to sell us things are on social media — but don’t sleep on the older stars, or celebs whose star power has cooled off. We learned from the recent VERZUS battle between legends Babyface Edmonds and Teddy Riley that even though some of our cultural uncles and aunties may not know how to use social media properly, they still have one.
So yes, icons like @Babyface and @Teddyriley1 on the ‘gram, just like us. Probably not as much though.
Check out more celebrities that you’d be surprised are on social media.
1. Jaleel White
Yup — Urkel has IG.
And so does Laura Winslow.
The former 3LW has stayed low key since her days with the Cheetah Girls and her attempt at a solo career.
4. Fred Hammond
You just wouldn’t expect a Gospel Music legend to address people on IG.
We’ve barely seen Brandon since Soul Food came out in ’97.
B.K.A. Superhead — Karrine hasn’t shied away from her controversial past. But she’s definitely more careful about what she posts now that she’s a mom.
Lark has made more headlines for her antics than her career in recent years. That hasn’t stopped her from posting on the ‘Gram.
8. Tyrin Turner
Tyrin isn’t a menace anymore. The actor is also a major Hollywood director now.
