Rock Icon and Author Patti Smith’s Instagram Is the Cutest Thing You’ll See Today

Patti Smith is one of the greats. I still hold that if the Nobel committee wanted to give the prize for literature to a poetic songwriter, the award should have gone to Smith, instead of Dylan. I’m available for fights on this. (Please don’t actually fight me, Dylan is great, I just love Patti so much.) Her music is incredible, her books are some of the best I’ve ever read, (get on that Just Kids buzz, kids) and on top of all this, dear friends, her Instagram presence is pure as the driven snow.

She only started the account in March of this year, and since then has gained a cool 94.2k followers. Many of her captions are formatted like poems, and she posts tributes to friends and artists on their birthdays, little glimpses into her daily life, happy selfies, a photographs of her daughter Jesse Paris Smith, a musician and passionate climate change activist, among many other things. Check out some of her lovliest posts below. 



So many followers! Thank you for making me feel so welcome.
