All hail queen Selena Gomez! The singer has stolen the crown of most followed person on Instagram away from her BFF Taylor Swift. We hope this isn’t going to cause any drama in their girl squad!
Bam! Selena Gomez, 23, is now officially the most followed person in all of Instagram, surging past the previous title holder and her best friend in the world Taylor Swift, 26. As of March 14, Selly reigned supreme with 69.4 million followers to Tay’s 69.2 million. Keep reading to see what other celebrities the “Hands To Myself” singer has left in the social media dust!
When you think of most follower person on Instagram, the logical guesses would be Taylor, Justin Bieber, 22, or maybe one of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters. But nope! Selena is the top dog on Instagram, nearing in on almost 70 million followers. This has got to come to a shock to a lot of other celebs, especially her superstar Tay who has ruled supremely for quite some time. But Selly has two things going for her in gaining followers: her on-again/off-again relationship history with the Biebs, as his followers will naturally check up on her, and Sel’s friendship with Taylor which drives more fans her way! Selena is winning!
It’s a super close race as Taylor only has 200,000 less followers than Selena so we’re sure with one mind-blowing Instagram post she could surge back to being number one. Runner ups include Kim Kardashian, 35, with 63.7 million followers to 34-year-old Beyonce‘s 63.1 million. Selena’s ex Justin comes in at number five with 61.6 million Insta-followers, despite his constant shirtless posts that his fans go so nuts over.
For the year of 2015, Taylor owned five of the top ten most liked Instagram posts, mainly due to her relationship with Calvin Harris, 32, and her adorable cats. Sel only had one pic in the top ten, landing at number seven with a photo of herself wearing her favorite gray t-shirt.
HollywoodLifers, how long do you think it will be before Taylor reclaims her Instagram crown?
