Move over, Kim Kardashian. The new queen of the belfies (that’s body selfies, for you social media luddites) is Jen Selter, a young Jewish woman with an eye-catching derriere.

It’s literally hard to look away when a photo of her pop-out behind pops up on your screen. Don’t believe it? Just ask one of her 1.3 million Instagram followers.

In a tale for our times, the 20-year-old Long Island native, has skipped college and is catapulting herself to fame and fortune based on pics she began posting last March of her booty clad in brightly colored, skintight workout attire. Now living in Manhattan, she has several managers and is fielding endorsement offers and talk show invitations.

“I want to be the next Jillian Michaels,” Selter tells The Times of Israel, referring to the famous fitness trainer and reality TV personality. “I want to become a fitness guru and travel the world teaching fitness classes.”

Israel is on her list of desired destinations — for personal, as well as professional reasons. “My stepfather’s brother lives near Jerusalem. He’s Orthodox and has 12 kids,” she shares.

Selter claims that the photos she posts of herself — some showing her face, but many capturing only her body — are all for the sake of motivating people to hit the gym and get in shape. Selter herself started working out seriously just a few years ago.
