Last night, Barack Obama said goodbye to the American nation as the President of the United States.

On January 20, the president-elect, Donald Trump, will be sworn into office.

Obama gave an inspiring, heart-warming speech, and Hollywood's celebs took to Twitter to bid farewell to their president.

He will surely be missed.

We deeply apologise to all selfie stick lovers for bringing you this terrible news: selfie sticks have officially been banned at Disney World and Disneyland.

Disney officials have announced that starting on Tuesday, all Disney theme parks in Orlando, Paris and Hong Kong will have a ban on the popular photo taking tool.

A spokeswoman for the group explained to the Orlando Sentinel that selfie sticks have become a “growing safety concern for both our guests and cast.”

Disneyland is joining a growing list of popular venues that have banned the selfie-taking apparatus. The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Colosseum in Rome, Wimbledon tennis championships, Coachella music festival, and a host of other venues have all banned the stick.

While the world’s selfie epidemic has undoubtedly gotten out of control, we can’t argue that there have been some pretty great photos captured as a result.

So, in memory of the selfie stick, let’s take a look at our favourite five celebrity-selfie-stick-moments. 

1. Is there any possible selfie more 'fashion' than Zoolander, Hansel and Anna Wintour? Definitley, definitely not. 

2. Even the President of The United States is doing it… 

3. Wouldn't it be a downright shame if this beautiful trio couldn't capture themselves at the optimum angle?

4. A bearded Leo DiCaprio has even been seen aimlessly wandering around with his selfie stick. 

5. And last but by no means least, the woman who wrote the book on it… literally. While we realise that Kim K isn't holding a selfie stick here, her deep-rooted love for taking pictures of herself did result in an elephant giving her a fright so we simply couldn't leave it out.

President Obama has referred to Caitlyn Jenner in a speech that was recorded for Logo’s Trailblazer Honors in New York City.

Logo is a television network that celebrates one-of-a-kind personalities and unconventional stories. Their aim is to achieve this “all through a mix of original and acquired entertainment that’s outrageous, smart, and inclusive.”

The Trailblazer Honors ceremony is to honour LGBT people around the world and the victims of those who have suffered from homophobic abuse.  The ceremony, which airs tomorrow, will also host celebrity speakers including Miley Cyrus, Kelly Osbourne, Sir Ian McKellan, Martin Luther King III, and more.

In his speech President Obama said that “tonight is a chance to celebrate, not just ten years of Logo, but ten years of extraordinary progress for our country.

“When this network aired its first show, gay marriage was a political wedge issue used to divide us. Today the majority of Americans live in states where they can get married, no matter who they love.

“And all you have to do is look at this month’s cover of Vanity Fair to see how America is more accepting of people for who they truly are,” he said referring to Ms Jenner's recent issue of the magazine. 

Since Caitlyn’s transition, she has become an icon for transgender people around the world. With all eyes on her, she has become the most famous person to openly undergo the gender transition process in the public eye.

President Obama was in the middle of giving a speech honouring LGBTQ Pride Month when he was heckled by a member of the crowd.

The US President tried to ask the heckler to stop interrupting him and when the person wouldn’t listen Obama pointed out, “you’re in my house,” which prompted a big cheer from the crowd.

The audience was clearly on Obama’s side throughout the altercation as they booed the heckler and began a chant, shouting “O-bam-a.”

The President even declared that, “As a general rule I am just fine with a few hecklers… But not when I’m up in the house,” which again warranted a huge laugh from the crowd and a slap on the back from Vice President, Joe Biden.

Following the incident, an immigration group claimed that the protestor was an undocumented transgender who advocates for LGBTQ immigrants. The group says that LGBTQ immigrants are often excluded from the immigration debate.

While Obama has received his fair share of hecklers in his time, it is a rare occurrence in the White House. As he said, if the guests are “eating the hors d’oeuvres and drinking the booze,” they are usually expected to be respectful and listen.
