Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may rule celeb gossip these days, but they aren’t the ones who wear the crowns in the Kingdom of Instagram.

Before we get into the coronation ceremony, we should probably acknowledge that there are a ton of reasons why someone might like an Instagram pic. It could be that they like the person’s outfit, the photography was impressive… or maybe the person is just really freakin’ hot. Whatever the reasons though, the people have spoken! We now humbly present to you the Queen and King of Instagram, chosen from the top 10 liked photos.

Queen: Selena Gomez

Selena has had a tough year, but she has stayed strong and honest with her fans, so we are not at all disappointed with this result. Here are her top pics!

when your lyrics are on the bottle 😛 #ad

It turns out a star-studded Coca-Cola ad brought in the most likes this year, clocking in at 5.9 million. Even without the Coke though, we’ve got to admit she looks FIERCE.

One of my favorite nights on tour

This adorable and heartwarming photo of Selena and a fan brought in a whopping 4.2 million likes. Wowza!

Turns out you don’t even need a caption to get 4 million likes. It probably doesn’t hurt to be famous, though.

74 🙏🏽❤️

Selena was supes grateful to get to 74 million followers, so we can imagine how thrilled she was when she became the first person to ever get 100 million. That is a lot of followers.

Selena’s super stylish look as she arrived in Japan is giving us serious travel wardrobe envy. And those rose-colored glasses? We’re speechless, and so were 3.9 million other people.

Selena’s Revival Tour gave us some really special moments, like this Flashdance-esque shot.

Our Queen is on FIRE. That outfit rivals some of (fellow Queen) Bey’s.

King: Cristiano Ronaldo

A queen does not need a king, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention this famous (and hunky) soccer star’s Instachievements.

I always dream to win this title ❤️❤️❤️🔝🔝🔝👍👍

This one of Cristiano winning the Euro Title trophy brought in 3.6 million likes (and probably a lot of booze-filled revelry).

Te amo❤️❤️🔝

Even when he’s wearing a nice suit, Cristiano doesn’t seem to want to let go of that trophy. Maybe the 3.2 million likes are for the shiny cup and not the dude? We can’t tell.

Do you think Cristiano and Selena deserved their titles? Tell us what you think @BritandCo!
