Welcome to the world of Instagram, Barbra Streisand

Kristyn Burtt is an IAWTV award-winning host and entertainment reporter. She currently hosts the recap shows for "Dancing With the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance" on AfterBuzz TV and for "True Blood" on GeekNation.

Barbra Streisand posts exactly what you would expect to her Instagram

Welcome to Instagram, Barbra Streisand! The singer decided Wednesday was the big day to join the social media platform and she kicked off her first photo with an epic portrait.

The picture showed the "Evergreen" singer lounging on a patio armchair dressed in a black jacket with a big floppy bow over her white shirt. She shows off her legs and black heels as her puppy Samantha lounges next to her. Streisand looks relaxed and happy in the photo.

She captioned the picture, "Hello Instagram… isn't my Samantha just precious?"

The Oscar-winning songstress isn't off to a bad start. She currently has close to 22,000 followers, but she's also following 13 accounts. Some of the famous names you might recognize include Lionel Richie, BFF Donna Karan and President Barack Obama. She's also hip to the younger crowd by adding Michael Bublé, John Legend and Josh Groban to that list.

Streisand even fell prey to the Instagram syndrome of photographing a meal. She decided to pick dessert for her second photo. On Friday, she shared a plateful of cupcakes adorned with colorful frosting roses.

She wrote, "Cupcakes…not on my diet…and too pretty to eat!"

It looks like she's got a good hang of how to post on Instagram, but the Guilt Trip star isn't a stranger to social media. She's very active on her Twitter account, which boasts over 327,000 followers. However, it's not clear whether she is running her account or if it is someone on her team. Many celebrities hand over the social media duties to their personal assistants.

We just can't wait for her first selfie.
