Why Selena Gomez is the Queen of Instagram
The singer has reached 100 million followers on the photo-sharing app, breaking a record she set earlier in the year.
Selena Gomez continues her reign as the queen of Instagram with 100 million followers, making her the first user to see that many zeroes on the photo-sharing app. Incredibly, Gomez reached that number despite not being active on her account in over a month after canceling the remainder of her Revival tour to focus on her physical and mental health.
The last photo she shared was a shot of her on stage performing during her Revival tour.
This isn't the first time the “Hands to Myself” singer has broken an Insta-record. Back in March, she became the most followed person on instagram taking the top spot from Taylor Swift —who once had the most followers—and selfie queen Kim Kardashian.
Her Selenators without a doubt helped her reach this latest milestone. When her fans saw that she was close to the 100 million mark, they coined the #SelenaBreakTheInternet hashtag to show their support during her work hiatus and to cheer her up.
And there's more from this social media royalty: Gomez also has the most-liked picture on Instagram with 5 million likes and counting. The photo is of her drinking a Coke with her lyrics on the bottle.
All hail queen Selena!
