Celebrity social media presence is almost expected anymore, especially on the most popular platforms, boasting millions of active users. Juicy J fans will be happy to know that they can follow the man himself on Snapchat, allowing themselves to be privy to the musician’s pictures and videos.
While it’s given the entire world a brand new, innovative means to communicate with each other, celebrities have found fantastic new ways to interact with their various audiences through social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and others all play host to popular personalities who need to constantly market themselves to their followers, fans, and the press. It’s the reality of the reputation, and the digital era has not only made it easier for celebrities to take this responsibility into their own hands, it’s allowed them to become much more personable and close to their followers as well.
Juicy J, born Michael Jordan Houston, is a powerhouse musical personality who has recently arrived on Snapchat, much to the happiness of his fans. Popularly known as a member of the rap group Three 6 Mafia, he’s since debuted solo and has shown his prowess and creative strength in just about every corner of the music production process. Performer, songwriter, producer; Juicy J has been killing it over the past two decades, and he doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
His arrival on Snapchat has brought that talent down to Earth for many of his fans, and all of those wanting a glimpse into the man’s humor and creativity now have that outlet. We’ll show you how to follow Juicy J on Snapchat, so you can start Snapping at the man himself.
Adding Snapchat Contacts
Getting people on your Snapchat isn’t a particularly grueling process. There are a few ways that you can usually go about it, too, but if we’re looking to add celebrity Snapchatters, you’re really only down to two methods (just think of how many people are Snapping them on a daily basis!)
The trick is, Snapchat doesn’t give you an easy, accessible way of finding people from within the app. Either they’re on your contact list and you’re receiving Snaps from them, or you don’t have access in the first place. Unless you catch their Snapcode or username through one of the app’s sponsored Stories (and who wants to wait for that?) it’s going to be up to you to take to the internet and search out the information that you need.
In this case, we either want a Snapcode or an username. You can even do this from your mobile device if that’s where you happen to have found this article.
Finding Juicy J Online
This is all going to start with your web browser, and it doesn’t matter which one we use. When anyone wants to announce that they’ve joined Snapchat–celebrity or otherwise–the most useful way to do so is through other social media platforms. You’re guaranteed to reach a dedicated audience (important!) and unlike Snapchat, other social media feeds are static; unless you go out of your way to delete a post, a share, or a Tweet, anything that you put up via social media is there to stay.
This makes it an ideal reference point when people want to find you on Snapchat, and it’s exactly where we’re going to look right now.
I’ve always found it best to start any search as simply as you can, and then narrow down your search queries when you require greater specificity. Therefore, we’re simply going to search for “Juicy J Snapchat.”
What should be among the first entries in your search results is a Twitter announcement from Juicy J himself, proclaiming that he’s just joined Snapchat. This is precisely the information that we’re looking for, and it should contain his Snapchat username.
Upon which we find exactly what we’re looking for; Juicy J’s Snapchat username is @itsyoboyjuicyj. (I’ll explain why I didn’t just give it to you shortly. I promise, it’s not a mean trick.)
Of course, usernames aren’t the trendiest means of adding someone to Snapchat. Snapcodes were added to the popular social media app for that very reason. If you’d rather go that route than dig through search results and Twitter posts, simply pop over to the “image search” function of your web browser’s search engine and type in “Juicy J Snapcode.”
Once again, you’re likely going to find what you’re looking for immediately. The trendy yellow Snapcode that allows you to add users to your Snapchat contact list without typing in a single word in the app itself should make itself clearly recognizable in your search results. (And because I’m a kind person, it’s available right here.)
Now, let’s get out of browsers and search engines and hop back over to Snapchat. The rest of our work is going to take place within the app itself, and with a few simple steps, we’ll get Juicy J on your contact list. If you’re a Snapchat veteran, you’ve likely been two steps ahead of our guide from the moment that you found Juicy J’s username or Snapcode, but if you’d still like a little bit of direction, read on!
From within the main window of your Snapchat app, hit the little white ghost silhouette at the top to get to the main Snapchat menu. From here, you want to select “Add Friends” followed by “Add by Username.”
From this menu, you can simply type in the username that we found on Juicy J’s Twitter post, which is also conveniently attached to his Snapcode. Do that, and you’re golden!
Adding someone via Snapcode is just as simple of a process (if not even easier), but you’ll need to have the Snapcode displayed somewhere that can be viewed with your mobile device’s camera. If you’re on your mobile device, try opening up this guide on your desktop or laptop computer–you can even use the Snapcode graphic displayed above to add Juicy J to your Snapchat contacts.
As before, you’ll want to use the little ghost silhouette symbol to take you to your main menu. Follow the “Add Friends” option to “Add by Snapcode,” which will activate your mobile device’s camera. Line up your camera’s viewfinder with the Snapcode and voila! One approval from Juicy J later and you’ll be able to access pics and video via Snaps from the man himself.
Other Celebrities on Snapchat
Of course, there’s a reason that I always include a bit of “how-to” in guides like this, as opposed to just providing you with a specific celebrity’s information. That would be the easiest route, sure, but it wouldn’t leave you in a very good position for ferreting out more celebrity information from the web when you’d like to add more of your favorites. Instead, you now have an easy search priority that can yield the username and/or Snapcode of just about any celebrity that’s decided to take to Snapchat.
In order to get you started, here are just a few that have a popular following on the equally popular social media app:
- Selena Gomez: @selenagomez
- Miley Cyrus: @mileycyrus
- Diplo: @diplo3000
- Kylie Jenner: @kylizzlemynizzl
- David Guetta: @davidguettaoff
- Justin Bieber: @rickthesizzler
- The White House: @whitehouse
- Paris Hilton: @RealParisHilton
- Lady Gaga: @ladygaga
A handful amidst hundreds; if you have favorite celebrities and famous personalities that consistently pique your attention, simply use the search queries in this guide to take you right to their Snapchat information. There’s a good chance that they’ve used other social media platforms to announce their arrival, the same way that Juicy J did through Twitter.
There’s a reason that more and more celebrities and artists are adding Snapchat to their social media repertoire. The “self-destructing” nature of Snaps allow all of the app’s users to be more candid in what they reveal from their lives; since messages never linger for more than 24 hours at their longest, the looming presence of post histories and year-spanning social media feeds can be less of a worry, leaving more room for creative posts and intimate posts from one’s professional and/or private life. For famous names looking to get into a more direct contact with their many followers, there aren’t many available options that are better than Snapchat, especially if those followers are teens and young adults. For this reason, you’ll be surprised at how many people are already onboard.
If you’re a Snapchat veteran, then you’re already acquainted with all of the lenses, filters, and other features that allow for creative expression beyond what you can shoot with your camera. You’re also probably used to seeing your friends put those features to work, but are you ready to see something created by some of your favorite famous faces? Give it a try, and you’ll see why it can be such a fun, compelling way to keep in touch with what they’re up to!
The guide above is by no means comprehensive of all ways that you can find your favorite celebrities’ Snapchat information, but by my count, it’s among the quickest! After you take a peek at Juicy J’s pictures and videos on Snapchat, post in the comments letting us know what you think. You can even recommend other celebrity Snapchatters that you’d like to see featured on Appamatix!
