It’s official! Kim Kardashian has been dethroned on Instagram once again as not only Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, but also Ariana Grande and Beyonce have all managed to score more followers on the social media than the 35 year old socialite!
Kim, who is the self-proclaimed Queen of Selfies, used to rule Instagram with tens of millions of followers. However, in late 2015 she was dethroned by another female celeb, who ends up in the headlines just as frequently as Kim does – Taylor Swift. But now Swift’s long-time best friend Selena Gomez has also dethroned Kanye West’s wife on the popular social networking service. Selena Gomez currently takes the first place as the Instagram user with most followers – she has 75.5 million fans on Instagram, while Taylor falls under number two with a total of 74.2 million.
The third place is taken by Ariana Grande, who currently has 68.7 million followers. Beyonce falls in fourth with 67.9 million and Kim is left at number five with a total of 67.5 million Instagram fans. This should come to no surprise as Taylor and Selena are role models thanks to their clean public image, while Kim often gets slammed for her outrageous deeds and raunchy photos on the social media. Selena’s new album, Revival, also brought her quite a success not only on the social media, but also in paychecks, as well as the two movies she starred in last year – The Big Short and Hotel Transylvania 2. The 22 year old actress has another 3 projects coming up later this year – a thriller, entitled The Fundamentals of Caring, a 1930s themed drama with James Franco, entitled In Dubious Battle, and the second installment of the comedy Neighbors from 2014, which will star Gomez, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Lisa Kudrow, Chloe Grace Moretz and LL Cool J.
