Selena Gomez Is The Most Popular Person On Instagram - Here's Why

She's overtaken BFF Taylor Swift

Selena Gomez is now officially the most-followed person on Instagram, overtaking best friend Taylor Swift who previously held the title. She now has 69.5m followers to Swift's still-impressive 69.2m. 

The 23-year-old singer rarely scores less than 1 million 'likes' for a post, even though she doesn't post that regularly.

Two days ago she got 1.4m 'likes' for a video fo her eating a MacDonalds cheeseburger. Now that's talent.

So we've decided to dissect just why the former Disney star is such an Insta winner...
