Selena Gomez has hit 69.6 million followers on Instagram, making her the new reigning queen of filtered photos. She overtook best friend and former top Instagrammer Taylor Swift, who has a meager 69.3 million followers.
So why the sudden increase in followers? Perhaps the frequent appearance of other celebrities has something to do with it. Hanging out with other stars creates lots of photo-worthy moments, and people love to see celebrity cross-overs. Browsing through Gomez’s photos shows her embracing Jennifer Aniston, hanging out with co-star Paul Rudd, and chatting up Brad Pitt.
Posting risqué photos sure doesn’t hurt either.
Despite the power struggle to be most-loved on Instagram, Gomez and Swift clearly don’t have too many hard feelings about it. In fact, Gomez frequently has her bestie in her photos.
