Selena Gomez and Beyoncé continue to dominate Instagram

One has the most followers on the platform and the other has the most likes.


Reigning pop queen Selena Gomez has won the social media race for 2017 with her 130 million Instagram followers, putting her ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (116 million), Ariana Grande (115 million), and Beyoncé (104 million) as Instagram’s most-followed account.

But even in fourth place, Beyoncé is still out there breaking Instagram records: Her iconic pregnancy photo raked in more than 11 million likes, making it the most-liked Instagram post of 2017.

On the list of most-liked Instagram photos of the year, though, Selena has five of the top 10. Her hospital photo from her kidney transplant has 10.3 million likes, putting it not that far beyond Beyoncé’s.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

In fact, the list of the top 10 Instagram posts of the year only includes pics from Selena, Beyoncé, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Will anyone be able to dethrone them by the end of December? Doesn’t look likely.
