Colin Powell: I Was Doing Selfies Way Before They Were Cool

Posted: Updated:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell offered a glimpse into his past Thursday, posting an old selfie on Facebook.

"I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks," Powell wrote. "Eat your heart out Ellen!"

"Ellen" refers to Ellen DeGeneres, who organized a major celeb selfie at the 2014 Academy Awards that became the world's most retweeted photo.
