Selena Gomez has replaced Kylie Jenner as the most followed woman on Instagram again. However, the actress and singer has had such negative experiences that she even took a break from the platform.
There is a tough duel for the throne on Instagram. Until recently, Kylie Jenner was the undisputed queen: no woman on the platform had more followers than the 25-year-old. 380 million accounts follow her. But Selena Gomez has now just passed her and has passed the 381 million mark.
Selena Gomez is an old acquaintance in this ranking: The actress and singer previously held the title until 2019, but then lost it to Ariana Grande. The reason: in 2018 she had temporarily withdrawn from the platform. “As much as I’m grateful for the voice that social media gives us all, I’m also grateful for the opportunity to step back and live my life in the here and now,” she wrote at the time.
Selena Gomez knows the dark side of Instagram
Gomez was one of the first stars to break out on Instagram, becoming the first person to hit 100 million followers with the hashtag #SelenaBreakTheInternet, which went viral around the world. But she also had to face the downsides of Instagram fame. “I never had the opportunity to go to a real high school. The world was mostly my school and I was inundated with information I didn’t want,” she recently told Vanity Fair.
She received a lot of hate comments, especially in connection with the separation from her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, which would not have done her any good, said the 30-year-old: “I just couldn’t take it anymore. It was a waste of my time.” After a four-month break, she returned to Instagram.

Nevertheless, Gomez has drawn clear conclusions from her experiences. She has not installed the Instagram app on her cell phone, she only has TikTok there because the app is “less toxic”. Her assistant posts her posts for her, Gomez only sends her the material for it. And the star is no longer concerned with the comments either: her assistant only puts together a selection for her, which is “encouraging”, as Selena Gomez told “Vanity Fair”.
Apparently, that didn’t detract from her popularity with fans. However, she has lost the title of being the person with the most followers, which she held for a long time. Since footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is far away. He is followed by 550 million users, followed by Lionel Messi with 433 million followers. However, the most successful account overall is that of Instagram itself – with more than 600 followers.
