Let's Balance Out This Horrible Selfie With This Wonderful Selfie

"Selfies at Funerals" is a real tumblr that exists with multiple entries that you can peruse here; Beyoncé photo-bombing a fan's selfie while holding the hand of another fan, while singing, is a real thing that happened that you can witness here.
