Colin Powell apparently was hip long before "selfie" entered the lexicon.

In honor of Throwback Thursday, the former secretary of State and retired Army general posted a "selfie" on Facebook that he took of himself 60 years ago, by standing in front of a mirror and pointing the camera forward. The picture shows off Powell looking very dapper in his youth.

"Eat your heart out Ellen," says Powell, in a nod to Ellen DeGeneres. The TV talk-show host's celebrity-studded "selfie" during the Academy Awards became the most tweeted picture in history.
