If you had to guess who the most followed celebrity on Instagram was, who would you say?
Well, the latest results have been released, and #1 will come as no surprise. Beyonce is still reigning supreme with a staggering 42.8 million, proving that not even the Kardashians have overtaken her yet in the popularity stakes.
Speaking of the Kardashians,… Kim‘s nabbed the #2 spot, which we could have predicted. With 42.3 million followers, it seems we really can’t get enough of all of those nude baby bump selfies and adorable snaps of Nori with cake all over her face. Love her or hate her, Kimmy’s formula is working.
So who’s at #3? Say hello to Taylor Swift. Ever since hooking up with Calvin Harris earlier this year, all eyes have been on the singer’s account for glimpses of their super cute pop star romance. Add to that her many, many famous friends who regularly make an appearance, and it’s easy to see how she’s racked up 42 million followers.
#4 and #5 have been nabbed by pint-sized pop stars Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez, closely followed by previous winner Justin Bieber at #6. Sorry Biebs, but it looks like the ladies are queening Instagram this year!
As for Kendall and Kylie Jenner? Well, despite her world famous pout and regular sexy Insta-snaps, Kylie’s still trailing behind her big sister, but not by much. Kendall, who boasts the most-liked Instagram picture EVER with her cool heart hair, comes in at #7 with 34.1 million followers, whilst Kylie boasts 32.2 million. And next year will only be bigger, we predict…
But the biggest surprises in the top 20 most-followed Instagram celebrities were perhaps the boys.
Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, who plays for Barcelona, nabbed tenth place (no David Beckham?), whilst ladies man Cristiano Ronaldo came in at a respectable #13.
