Well, what a difference a week can make. Selfie Queen Kim Kardashian has been eloquently knocked off her throne, with the honour of most followed person on Instagram now bestowed on Taylor Swift. All hail TayTay, Queen of the cat posts!
The 25-year-old Bad Blood singer has racked up an impressive 45.9m devotees on the social media site, taking down the reality star whose total sits at 45.6m.
Snapping at Kim’s stilettos is Beyonce at 45.1m, with Selena Gomez trailing behind with a lazy 43.3. Come on Sel!
No doubt the news came as a shock to Kanye West's leading lady who, only a week ago, took to Instagram to celebrate reaching 45 million followers with - you guessed it – a selfie!
The revealing shot was captioned, “45 million Instagram followers!!!!! I love you guys!!!!!”
The Grammy winner's reign is definitely well-deserved though, the 1989 singer is an avid social media user who’s all about sharing everything with the people who got her to where she is today. “Fans are my favourite thing in the world,” the singer wrote on her website, before adding, "I've never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line's always been really blurred for me.”
With humble views like that, it’s no wonder she’s Queen - we hope your reign is long a prosperous Tay.
