Selena Gomez no more enjoys being the most followed female artist on Instagram anymore. She has been replaced by a contemporary. Guess who? Read on…
Selena Gomez is one hell of a popular and successful artist and her fandom knows no boundaries. A true global artist, Selena also held the record for being the most followed female artist on Instagram for a long long time. Gomez was at the top spot till the end of October last year and is now replaced by none other than the well-known American singer Ariana Grande.
Grande, who has now become the most followed woman on Instagram, has 146,335,231 followers currently while Gomez has 146,288,236 followers on Instagram as she lands on the second spot. In other news, the most followed human on IG is Christiano Ronaldo who enjoys a whopping following of 155 million followers.
The main reason why Selena lost the top spot has a lot to do with her inactivity and break from social media which she took post September 2018 citing anxiety issues. Meanwhile, Grande got followed by 13 million plus people as per Billboard during October and November when Gomez was totally inactive. Well, one’s gain is another’s loss.
On the other hand, Ariana’s break-up with Pete Davidson and her latest song Thank U, Next and it’s launch also kept her in news.
Coming back to Selena, she has promised her fans to not completely be away from social media and keep in touch with them from time to time. “She isn’t going to be posting much on social because she is more aware of how social takes a toll on her mental health, but she will be updating her fans once in a while,” said a source.
