Selena Gomez has done the unthinkable, overtaking her best pal Taylor Swift to snatch the crown for most Instagram followers. Gomez takes #Instafamous to the nek level with a total of 69.4 million fans on the picture sharing site.
To put that in to perspective… it’s the equivalent of the Australian population MULTIPLIED BY THREE. That’s some absolutely bonkers reach – particularly for posts like this:
Taylor follows close behind with 69.2 million while Kim Kardashian West has 63.6 million followers. However Kim takes the cake for desperation with some of her recent posts.
All this being said, the battle for Instagram domination seems to be a peaceful one with Swift and Gomez in the early stages of organising a musical collaboration.
If you can’t beat them, join them – right swifty?
In a recent radio interview over the weekend, Gomez said of the Swift collab:
“The opportunity has always been there and I think she is one of the most talented songwriters I have ever met. I don’t know – I would want it to be a moment but we’ll see.”
Meanwhile, Selena admitted she felt “very creepy” when making out with hunky male model Christopher Mason in her ‘Hands To Myself’ music video.
Speaking on UK radio, she said: “I felt very creepy to be honest though, because I was a little bit of a stalker and then we had that awkward make out scene… I’m not kidding it was pretty awkward and I kept trying to make inappropriate jokes. I don’t think he got it, it was really weird.
“I’m like ‘Hi, nice to meet you, can you take off your clothes and get in bed with me?’ That’s so weird!”
