If you've ever attempted to take a fire selfie, you'll agree that angles are absolutely everything. 

In your mind, you can go from looking like a ethereal goddess to complete swap monster with just a slight twist of your head – and don't even get us stared on reverse image cameras. 

However, for anyone who is a little self-conscious about the size of their nose, you'll be happy to know that phone camera can actually make them appear bigger than they are in real life. 

In fact, new research has shown that selfies can increase the size of our snozzles by up to one third, and the phenomenon is causing a dramatic rise in demand for nose jobs. 

Apparently it's all to do with perceptive. When taken at a distance of 12 inches, selfies can appear to change the structure of our faces, thus leading to increased self-esteem and body image issues. 

According to Metro, four in ten cosmetic surgeons say they have noticed that some of their patients wish to improve the way the look on Facebook and Instagram. 

Dr Boris Paskhover, an ear, nose and throat specialist said: "When taken at 12 inches away, selfies increased nasal size by 30 per cent  in males and 29 per cent in females"

"Predictably, an image taken at five feet – a standard portrait distance – results in essentially no difference in perceived size."

Of course, this means waving goodbye to cute close-ups, but if you don't want you face to become distorted, you're better off getting someone else to take the photo.

A backstage video which purports to show Taylor Swift taking cocaine at the recent VMAs ceremony has emerged on a social media site.

Entitled Taylor Swift Does Coke? in it, the singer-songwriter is shown holding an item to her nose while being surrounded by her entourage.

However, this evening her publicist has come out to strongly refute any suggestion that the 25-year-old had taken drugs – instead explaining that she was simply blowing her nose.

The clip was taken by MTV as part of its behind-the-scenes footage, but was never broadcast during last Sunday's glitzy awards bash.

It shows Ms Swift in low lighting walking down a corridor at the Los Angeles venue. She subsequently stops to ask her assistant to hand her something. 

A trio of aides, looking around uneasily, then close ranks around her by linking their arms, thus giving her a moment of privacy. 

Afterwards, one of them checks her nose with a torch to ensure it is clear. 

The clip was uploaded onto YouTube and viewed several thousand times before it was removed.

The video was originally sent to Gawker via SecureDrop, a platform for untraceable communications between journalists and sources.  

Gawker also claims that the Trouble singer's publicist threatened to sue them if they reported that Taylor was doing cocaine.
