We love to follow celebs on Instagram, whether it’s a singer or actress or famous chef or reality star. There’s just something so fascinating about their lives, be it personal or professional, that we can’t get enough of. But even if you follow as many celebs as we do, you might be a little surprised to know who has the most followers.
The celeb in question has a staggering 69.5 million (and counting) people following her.
Nope, it’s not Taylor Swift, though she’s close behind with 69.3 million fans.
It’s not Justin Bieber either. He’s only got a piddly 61. 2 million followers.
Nor is it Beyoncé (63.1 million) or Ariana Grande (63.3 million), both of whom are in the Top 10 but aren’t tops.
That leaves a Kardashian, right?
You’ll be quite shocked to learn that the current reigning Instagram champ does not have a single K in her name. Sorry, Kim, Kylie and Kendall, your respective 63.7 mill, 54.4 mill and 51.5 mill don’t measure up to …
… wait for it.
That’s right, people, the singer and former Disney star leads the celebrity pack on Instagram. And if you’re wondering what makes her so much fun to follow, it’s that she isn’t just posting selfies (though, admittedly, there are a lot of those). Gomez shows off photos of herself with famous pals.
Like Jennifer Aniston.
And Ani’s ex, Brad Pitt.
And Ani’s The Object of My Affection co-star (oh, and Selena’s The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving co-star), Paul Rudd.
Gomez also teases us (and Bieber) with caption-less pics of super-hot models and has us wondering if it’s the new guy in her life.
But she also obviously shows lots of love for her bestie (and Instagram runner-up), Tay.
But it’s throwbacks like this that get her over three million likes.
But back to Selena and Taylor for a sec. You just know the Swifty nation is not going to be pleased that their girl is in second place, even if it is to Tay’s bestie. Hmm, wonder how long it’ll take before T-Swift surpasses Selena? If Taylor isn’t posting pics of her as a girl with a purple dinosaur, we hope never.
