While promoting her new show, Amazing America, Sarah Palin recently confronted a hot-button issue: selfies.
At last week's Television Critics Association press tour, and in a subsequent Facebook post, Palin shared her thoughts on the divisive matter. "I think this world would be better off having more young women holding a fish in a picture than holding their camera in front of a bathroom mirror, talking a selfie," she observed.
Because celebrities posing with fish is certainly a trend we can get behind, we went ahead and Photoshopped aquatic life into existing selfies taken by Miley Cyrus, Snooki and other stars.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has made a statement of support for Phil Robertson, who was suspended from A&E Network's Duck Dynasty for making anti-gay comments.
Jindal claimed that Robertson, 67, was simply exercising his freedom of speech in the interview for GQ in which Robertson likened homosexuality to bestiality.
"I don't agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive," Jindal said in a written statement. "But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment.
"It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended," Jindal added.

Sarah Palin will host a weekly outdoors-oriented program that will celebrate the "red, wild and blue" lifestyle, the Sportsman Channel said Monday.
The program, Amazing America, will debut next April. The Sportsman Channel is in some 32 million homes, fewer than one-third of American households with television, with programming geared to people interested in hunting, fishing and shooting. Palin's show will include a series of stories about personalities and activities in that vein.
"It's very important to have somebody of her stature as a personality on Sportsman because it validates the whole category for everybody," said Gavin Harvey, network CEO.

As the recent HBO movie Game Change reminded the public, Sarah Palin had no love for Katie Couric after the infamous 2008 interview, when the vice-presidential candidate was pressed by the TV journalist to name even one newspaper that she read.
But now, the public will have the chance to see Palin and Couric in action again – not exactly together, but on dueling morning shows Tuesday, when both will help co-host the two top-rated network morning programs: NBC's Today (Palin) and ABC's Good Morning America (Couric).
On Tuesday, Palin called into Today to speak with hosts Matt Lauer and Ann Curry, saying she was looking forward to being with "you good people" on Tuesday.
"Are you reading some newspapers?" Lauer asked her – making Palin laugh and say: "That's a fine 'How do you do?' Here we go."
