Kim Kardashian has competition as the queen of selfies. Instagram user Mortao Maotor of Bangkok has posted more than 12,000 selfies on the social media website. Mortao, which is not her real name, has 20,000 followers and snaps an average of 200 selfies per week. She is not the stereotypical selfie-taking teenager but a married Thai woman in her 40s, Time reports. Mortao did not speak English but said through her husband's daughter that her reason for the high number of self-portraits is "quite personal."

A Polish couple in Portugal fell off the edge of a cliff while they were posing for a selfie. The couple was visiting the cliffs of Cabo da Roca with their children when they fell to their deaths, the Independent reported. The tragic accident occurred on Saturday, but emergency workers were not able to recover the bodies until Sunday because poor weather conditions impeded their search. A Spanish couple alerted authorities about what had happened after witnessing the fatal fall. The children, ages 5 and 6, are currently being cared for by Polish diplomats. Family members have been alerted and will be traveling to Portugal to deal with situation.

Bjerke called the girl a "spoiled brat" who "doesn't deserve these tickets." The Perry concert is scheduled for August 23. "I was not going to give her these tickets. I was not going to let her go to the concert with the behavior she's been doing," Bjerke told WDAZ. The tickets were worth $110, but Bjerke undersold them for $90. Some people were critical of Bjerke's very public parenting style, but she is sticki…
