A social media bio is the first step to creating an online presence, at this particular moment you can be whoever you want to be and forge a real, slightly false and highly exaggerated persona. It gets trickier when you’re famous and the public slightly knows who you are and what you’re about. However, these celebs produced some pretty funny, confusing and often inspirational bios.
