They say two heads are better than one, and that adage seems to be true when it comes to Instagram photos as well. While most of us peasants are happy if we get a dozen likes on a photo we’re proud of, people like the Kardashians, Jenners and Biebers of the world are used to getting hundreds of thousands of thumbs up on the daily.
So you know that it takes a lot of “liking” in order to get to the top.
That’s what happened last month when Justin Bieber posted a throwback picture of himself and Selena Gomez kissing with the simple caption “feels.” A lot of likes. A lot. And as now it’s the most-liked picture on Instagram, tapping in with at least 3.57 million little hearts.
Why would such a picture invoke such a massive reaction, do you think? Simple — we all want #Jelena to reunite. There’s something about their (former) teenage love that speaks to the first love in all of us. Almost like back in the day when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were a thing. But better, because we’d be really, really down if they were to get back together.
Besides, this picture is way better than the last “most-liked” pic, which was simply a photo of Kendall Jenner laying on the ground with her hair sprawled out into hearts. Artsy, yes. Cute, perhaps? But candid photos of people doing things are always nicer to see, in our opinion.

According to Instagram it’s still a pretty narrow margin for Bieber and Gomez though — the picture above, which was posted last year, has managed to pull in about 3.56 million hearts.
We’re not worried though — given that Bieber’s only had about a month to collect just as many likes on his pic, we think it will stay on top for a little while yet. And hopefully motivate those two to finally get back together already.
Because you know, “feels.”
