Who knows, oomf might just be a celebrity.
Since time immemorial, pop culture has often been associated with fandoms. From personalities, movies, TV shows, movements, and more, if something is even remotely popular, then it probably has fans. And thanks to the power of social media, fandom has taken on new forms, such as stans and stan accounts. Scroll enough on social media, especially X (formerly Twitter), you’ll come across a stan account dedicated to certain faves. In essence, it’s a way for fans to let their love of a certain pop culture figure be known. It’s an admiration that can push people to set up an entire account just for it, a feeling even celebrities have gone through.
Yes, your faves have their faves, with some of them even once having their own stan account. It’s actually crazy to think that some of the stan accounts you’re mutuals might have a celebrity who’s behind them. But that’s the power of fandom, even stars aren’t immune. Scroll down for a list of famous faces who, at one point, had their own stan account.

It’s no secret that Liza Soberano is a major K-pop stan, with her fave groups including BTS and BLACKPINK.

BELLA RACELIS – ONE DIRECTION FAN PAGE
