Actress and singer Selena Gomez just reached a massive milestone: 100 million followers. the high score puts her above fellow Instagram queens as Taylor Swift (91.4 million), Beyonce (85.3 million), Ariana Grande (85 million) and even Kim Kardashian West (83.6 million). She hasn’t even shared a photo since August. Its safe to say she has the most loyal fans on the planet earth as even though she is taking a break from social media and the spotlight, but Selenators never sleep. I thereby crown Selena Gomez the Queen of Instagram .
Gomez canceled the remainder of her Revival Tour to deal with what she said was Lupus-related depression, which also spurred her current social media holiday. She was already the top Insta celeb, but when Selenators saw she was near the 100 mil mark they started the #SelenaBreakTheInternet hashtag to get her over the hump.
Not simply successful in attracting followers, Gomez’ account also drives considerable engagements. Her Coke bottle photo is the most liked picture in Instagram history (5.6 million likes), while her 4th of July “hostess vibes” clip is the most viewed video (19.2 million )
We can’t help but wonder: if your Instagram notifications are already stressful with a mere 10,000 followers then what do they look like when you have 100M!?
