These Are the Top 5 Most-Followed Celebs on Instagram
Beyoncé may have had the most-liked post on Instagram in 2017 (her pregnancy announcement, obviously), but she doesn’t have the most followers on the photo-sharing app. Although Queen Bey’s follower count is incredible (108 million as of this writing), she just barely made the top five, and she’d need another 22 million followers to get to the top spot, currently held by another famous musician.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

Gomez’s IG account, where she shares everything from her kidney transplant to her now-defunct relationship with The Weeknd, just keeps growing and growing. Five of the “Wolves” singer’s 2017 snaps even made it into the top 10 most-liked pics of the year, with her most-liked photo landing in third behind Bey’s baby announcement and a vid by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. And speaking of videos, Ronaldo is the king of Instagram videos — a clip of him driving his new luxury Bugatti is at the top of the list of the most-liked videos of the year.
Ronaldo also has the second-highest follower count (116 million). Rounding out the top five are Ariana Grande (with 115 million), Beyoncé (108 million), and KKW Beauty boss Kim Kardashian West (104 million).
