Taylor Swift Just Stole Something From Kim Kardashian

So Kim Kardashian is no longer the most popular person on Instagram.

Taylor Swift now owns the most followed account on the social networking site (after Instagram’s own page), boasting a MAJORLY impressive 45.7 million followers.

She’s nudged Kim out of the top spot, who’s very close behind with 45.6 million fans.

We’re pretty surprised that Taylor’s taken over from Kim – it had looked likely that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star would stay on top for a while.

She’s recently seen a rapid increase in her followers and posts far more frequently than most other celebrities.

These shots include selfies, family photos, images of her hubby Kanye West on stage and her fashion choices.

Her captions are also longer and more personal. Last month, she uploaded a nude selfie alongside an emotive paragraph about body image.

Part of it read: ‘Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too!’

Well. Coming in fourth is Selena Gomez with 43.2, Ariana Grande with 42.7 and Justin Bieber with 38.1.

Making up the top 10 are Kim’s younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Khloe Kardashian (yes, ANOTHER one of the siblings).

They really are taking over, aren’t they?
