The celebrities are coming to Snapchat; there’s no escape and resistance is futile. You’ll have some of the most fun with the app while following your favorite celebrities, and now you can catch pics and videos from pop artist K. Michelle!
While celebrities taking to Snapchat isn’t a particularly new trend, it is one that’s continuing to grow all of the time and isn’t showing any signs of slowing or stopping. If anything, Snapchat’s popularity is only bolstered when another famous personality comes aboard. If you consider how much of Snapchat’s millions-strong user base is made up of young people, and those firmly immersed in youth culture, it’s no surprise that fans of particular celebrities are going to follow wherever they go; when it happens to be Snapchat, the app’s popularity swells.
Popular names and faces have been taking to social media from the very first day that it became a mainstream habit, but for the same reasons that Snapchat is unique, it also offers unique ways for fans to follow their favorite celebrities, like K. Michelle. Snapchat’s media exists “in-the-moment.” It provides a way for people to share photos and videos that are digested almost as quickly as they’re shot, lasting only a few seconds in most circumstances before they’re gone forever. Snaps have an immediacy and importance that you just don’t get from Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, or Instagram images. They’re compelling in the same way that a secret message from a good friend is, and they’ll keep you coming back for more, whether you’re following a Story, an event, a friend, or a celebrity.
Musicians and artists have it even better on Snapchat, given that the platform gives them such an efficient way to share moments from both their professional and personal lives that speak so directly to their fans. Backstage previews, new music videos, freshly recorded songs, and moments from their day-to-day lives are all appropriate for Snapchat. K. Michelle first joined in October of 2015, which means that she’s had a good long while to get settled in, learn the ropes, and start communicating regularly with her faithful followers that await her every Snap.
In the following guide, we’ll show you how to find K. Michelle on Snapchat, using methods that you can use for any celebrity that you’d like to locate and follow. No matter which personalities pique your interest the greatest, there’s a higher chance that they’re on Snapchat than not. Let’s have a gander at K. Michelle’s Snaps, and then we can take a peek at some of the other celebrities frequenting the app.
How Do I Find Celebrities on Snapchat?
The thing that tends to throw most people off the trail right away is that Snapchat doesn’t give you an obvious way to search for people within the app. Instead, you’re going to have to take advantage of your other social media profiles (or more handily, an internet browser) to find the user info necessary to let you add a person to your Snapchat contacts.
If that already sounds like a lot of work, rest assured: this is going to be easy. It’s just a little bit different than the experience you might have on other social media platforms.
Finding K. Michelle
For our intent and purpose, let’s fire up an internet browser to get the information that we want. It can be on your desktop, your laptop, or even your mobile phone–as long as it searches, it’s our Girl Friday. Once you have access to your search bar, just type in “K Michelle Snapchat.” It’s likely that you’re going to find a whole host of search results since it definitely made a splash in the pop community when she joined Snapchat.
Among your first search results should be K. Michelle’s own Twitter announcement from when she decided to join up. (I’m going to spoil you, dear reader, and give it to you right here.) As I said above, Snapchat doesn’t give you many ways to speak to people outside of your contact list, and so everybody–not just celebrities–relies upon the web and other social media outlets to announce some of their most prominent Snapchat activity.
As you can see, she provides her Snapchat username in the same format that most people do when they’re sharing social media profiles: @kmichellemusics. Keep this info handy, but don’t close out your browser quite yet! We’re not quite finished, after all.
No matter which search engine you’re using, it hopefully provides you with a way to search only by images. If it doesn’t, then it’s time to start shopping for a new relationship with a newer and kinder browser, my friend. Tab over to an image search of the same query: “K Michelle Snapchat.”
Once again, you’ll receive a host of Snapchat-related images that (hopefully) all have to do with K Michelle, but the image we’re looking for is her Snapcode. This trendy new way of adding contacts is available to all Snapchatters, but celebrities, in particular, have a great deal of success sharing their codes on the web and through social media. It allows you to avoid memorizing or taking note of usernames altogether.
That handy image can be kept front-and-center if you’re using a desktop or laptop computer. If you’re on your smartphone, an username is going to be the easier method of adding K Michelle to your Snapchat.
Adding K. Michelle
So, final step–how do we go about this? If you’re a veteran Snapchatter, then you’re probably familiar enough with the process to have skipped ahead and done it yourself. Good for you! If you’re a newbie, though (that was me, not too long ago!), then the following simple instructions will introduce you to K. Michelle and get you ready to follow.
No matter which method you’re going to use to add K. Michelle, you need to tap on the little ghost silhouette on the Snapchat main menu. This will bring you to the main menu, from which you’ll select “Add Friends.”
If you’re adding via Snapcode, then simply select that option! Your device’s camera will activate once more, and all you have to do is line the viewfinder up with the Snapcode that you have on-hand. Voila. Instant contacts!
Perhaps it’d be easier for you to add by username. If that’s the case, select that option from the “Add Friends” menu, and tap in the above username (@kmichellemusics). This will have the same effect as adding a Snapcode, sans trendy images and use of your device’s camera. Now, after precious few steps and rewards reaped, you can’t tell me that wasn’t an easy process! What’s better is the fact that you can repeat it for any celebrity that you’re curious about. You’ll find out fairly quickly if they’re on Snapchat in the first place, and if they are, you’ll land right on top of their username or Snapcode. Most celebrities want you to follow them on social media; they want to engage with you and Snap you moments from their lives.
Other Celebrities on Snapchat
As promised, there are dozens of other celebrities present on Snapchat, likely in higher numbers that you suspect. As it becomes a more reliable place to keep in communication with one’s fan base, you can expect more people to join up, and additionally, those that are onboard to become even more active than they already are. With recent increases in Snapchat’s functionality, more everyday users will begin using it as their go-to messaging app.
Here are a few other people that you can find on Snapchat, right now:
- Chris Pratt: @ChrisPrattSnap
- Jessica Alba: @jessicamalba
- John Mayer: @johnthekangaroo
- Jimmy Fallon: @fallontonight
- Jamie Foxx: @iamjamiefoxx
- Keith Urban: @keithurban
If that delightful list isn’t enough to both pique your interest and get you started, then simply do as I recommended above: put your search engine to work and do even a minimal amount of research. There’s a good chance that the celebrity you’re looking for will be on Snapchat.
Of course, just because you’re following a celebrity’s Snaps doesn’t entitle you to the same level of back-and-forth as you’re going to have with a good friend. While other social media outlets allow you to follow what a person is up to, you won’t get much more access with Snapchat. You will, however, get an entirely different type of access that’s inherently more intimate than most of the competition. It’s creative, expressive, and doesn’t have any apps that can currently rival what it offers.
If you’re looking for a way to beef up your Snapchat, adding a few celebrities to your usual feed of Snaps and stories can be a fantastic way to do it. You’ll find a diverse offering of experience and media that can’t be found anywhere else, and if you’re a K. Michelle fan, you practically need to search her out and find her.
