On Friday, Selena Gomez became the first girl to have 400 million Instagram followers.

It comes just weeks after she surpassed Kylie Jenner as the most followed person on the popular social networking site. Kylie has approximately 382 million followers.

The “Lose You To Love Me” singer is currently the third-most followed person on Instagram, trailing only two well-known soccer players, Cristiano Ronaldo (562 million) and Lionel Messi (442 million).

She also became the most-followed female celebrity on Instagram less than four weeks ago, surpassing Kylie Jenner.

Selena Gomez was first in 2019 until Ariana Grande surpassed her; however, Kylie maintained that position until recently.

The recent increase in her Instagram followers has gotten a lot of positive feedback.

One admirer said on Twitter:

“Selena Gomez is once again the most followed lady on Instagram. Queen has returned! “

Another said:

“She’s back on her throne. Selena, you are the Instagram queen! “

One person even referred to her as the “OG queen of Instagram.”

Another said:

“Selena Gomez has definitely seized her spot as the top female artist on Instagram and Tiktok – she’s become an international superstar!”

Selena is a multi-award winner, but being named Instagram’s most-followed female may be her crowning achievement.

The 30-year-old singer-actress beat out celebrities such as Beyoncé and Kylie Jenner for this honor, which also landed Selena the top Instagram earner in 2017.

According to financial documents obtained by Insider, the former Selena & the Scene singer could earn up to $800,000 from a single sponsored Instagram post in 2021.

Her earnings will skyrocket now that she is among the most well-known social media stars.

Last year, she told “Good Morning America” that taking a break from social media was critical for her mental health.

During that time, she said:

“I haven’t been on the internet in four-and-a-half years… It has changed my life completely.”

The “Only Murders In The Building” star stated in an interview:

“I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people,”

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Selena Gomez has an estimated net worth of $85 million.

The brunette bombshell is a successful singer who has produced numerous hit albums and singles that have netted her a fortune.

Selena has been a spokesperson for various companies and products, including Coca-Cola, Puma, and Coach.

Selena Gomez has written and directed several TV shows and films, including “13 Reasons Why” and “The Broken Hearts Gallery.”

She is one of the most followed people on social media platforms such as Instagram and has a large following. She allegedly makes a lot of money from sponsored posts on her social media accounts.
