Selena Gomez Breaks Instagram Record with the first female to reach 400 Million Followers

Selena Gomez 400 million subscribers

Pop singer Selena Gomez has broken the Instagram record by becoming the most followed woman on the platform with a massive 400 million followers, surpassing Kylie Jenner’s 382 million followers. Gomez achieved this incredible milestone on March 17, three months after returning to Instagram. Despite being one of the most followed celebrities on the platform for years, Gomez’s relationship with social media has been turbulent.

In 2019, the “Only Murders in the Building” star deleted the app from her phone after it started to affect her mental health. “At one point, Instagram became my whole world, and it was really dangerous,” she admitted in a 2021 interview with Vogue. However, Gomez has since returned to Instagram and has been using it to promote self-love and body positivity. In her latest post, she shared two makeup-free selfies with the caption “Violet chemistry,” promoting the idea of being comfortable in one’s skin.

Gomez’s rise to Instagram fame has been remarkable, and fans and followers alike have celebrated her latest achievement. “She’s an inspiration to millions of people, and this achievement just proves that,” said one fan on Twitter. While she may be the most followed woman on Instagram, she’s not the most followed person on the platform. That title belongs to soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 551 million followers.

Ronaldo has been an active user of Instagram for years, regularly sharing photos of his fitness regime and behind-the-scenes glimpses of his personal and professional life. In addition to being the most followed person on Instagram, Ronaldo is one of the world’s highest-paid athletes and a four-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Lionel Messi is also a major influencer on Instagram, with over 432 million followers. The Argentine soccer star often shares photos of his family and behind-the-scenes moments from his soccer career. Messi is considered one of the greatest soccer players, having won numerous awards and accolades.

While the Instagram milestones of Ronaldo and Messi are impressive, Selena Gomez’s recent record-breaking achievement is still a testament to her influence and popularity. Her positive messages and accomplishments inspire millions, and we can’t wait to see what she will achieve next on the platform. Other celebrities who have achieved impressive Instagram milestones include Kylie Jenner, who previously held the title of the most followed woman on the platform with 382 million followers, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the most followed man on Instagram with over 270 million followers.

Ariana Grande is another major influencer on Instagram, with over 253 million followers. The singer often shares photos and videos of her music performances, behind-the-scenes moments, and selfies with her fans. Kim Kardashian West is also a major player on Instagram, with over 212 million followers. The reality TV star turned entrepreneur uses the platform to promote her beauty and fashion lines and share glimpses of her family life.
