Selena Gomez has lost yet another Instagram title this week – there’s a new queen in town and her name is Ariana Grande!



Up until last October, Selena was the most followed person on the social media platform and then was dethroned by soccer star, Christiano Ronaldo, who has over 156 million followers.  Selena has been dethroned once again and Ariana takes the title for most followed female on the gram.  Ari now has 146,258,213 followers compared to Selena’s 146,257,849 followers which puts her in the lead with 364 more followers.






As ELLE explains, “When looking at post output, it’s not entirely surprising that Grande increased her following by over 13 million users since October. Grande has more than double the posts Gomez does on her Instagram. Grande posts Instagram stories and new permanent grid posts multiple times daily on most days. She also just released a new album and has been heavily promoting her projects on the platform.”

And we can’t forget – Selena hasn’t been as active on Instagram as Ariana.  In September, Selena announced a social media break then, received mental health treatment from October to November and then a month ago, a source told E! News, “Selena isn’t going to be posting much on social because she is more aware of how social takes a toll on her mental health, but she will be updating her fans once in a while.”



If you think Selena is bothered by losing her Instagram title, she’s not, “Numbers don’t matter.  None of this matters. I don’t care how many followers I have. I don’t. It’s insane so many people are obsessed. Like, chill out.”  Selena did however set her own person Instagram – after she posted photos with friends on vacay, the photo became Selena’s most-liked – it was liked over 11.8 million times in 19 hours and now it has close to 14 million likes.
