Rank on a scale of 1 to Tom Hardy: 8.5

Who: Rick Ross
What you’ll see: In addition to what you’d expect — sneakers and gold jewelry — Ricky Rozay also has pictures of a Versace dining set and the lady selling him chicken wings. High and low! Drinking vodka, eating fast food, buying Hermes sandals… there’s a lot of variety here. PLUS, what you will see next is basically the most awesome image ever…

How can you not like Rick Ross’s Instagram?
Rank on a scale of 1 to Tom Hardy: 9.5

Who: Rihanna
What you’ll see: 33% Christian life lessons, 33% blunt smoking, 33% psuedo-nudity, with fashion shoots and tattoos thrown in, RiRi’s account is a manic grab-bag. You never know what you’re gonna get! Exciting.

Rank on a scale of 1 to Tom Hardy: 10

Who: Tom Hardy
What you’ll see: Tom Hardy just joined Instagram, and it’s not clear that he actually knows how it works, but Tom Hardy’s Instagram is amazing, because it is ALL PICTURES OF TOM HARDY. His captions are ridiculously simple: “hi guys” and “you’re beautiful girl :)” and “Hi ladies! Like my cute dog” and it’s almost like Tom Hardy is taunting us, but who cares? PICTURES OF TOM HARDY.
Rank on a scale of 1 to Tom Hardy: TOM HARDY!
