    The Internet Is Obsessed With "New Profile Pic," The App That Transforms Selfies Into Paintings, So I Tried It On 35 Celebs

    AI-generated Zendaya is everything. 😍

    Sooo, if you've been online and noticed your friends suddenly have new ~artistic~ profile pictures of themselves, you can thank NewProfilePic — an app that uses artificial intelligence to transform photos into cartoon-like portraits.

    Lately, people have been using the app to create painting selfie avatars, and TBH, it's kinda addicting. All you have to do is upload your photo, choose a cartoon style, and in a few seconds, you have a sketch that looks like it was drawn from an artist. HOW FUN!

    The app is free to download on the Apple App Store and on Google Play
