Kanye West Is on Instagram—and His First Post Is Cryptic

It's official: Kanye West has joined Instagram. The musician, designer, and infamous Twitter user's account popped up yesterday, and of course the internet is losing its mind. It hasn't even been 24 hours since the discovery of West's verified account, and it's already amassed almost 1 million followers, with wife Kim Kardashian West being one of the first. 

Earlier this year, the 39-year-old expressed his thoughts on potentially joining Instagram, telling followers on Twitter, "I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition...... no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram... It's my art..." Well, we can always count on Kanye for a head-scratching social media moment, and that's just what he gave us with his first Instagram post. The captionless photo appears to be a still from a scene in the 1990 science-fiction movie Total Recall. While we're unsure of what this could possibly mean to West, one thing is for sure: We can expect the unexpected (including "art") on his new social media account.
