Selena Gomez becomes first ever woman to hit 400 million followers on Instagram

Well, from now on Gomez is the most followed woman on IG, but not the most followed person.

Selena Gomez has become the first ever woman to hit 400 million Instagram followers!

Just a few days after surpassing Kylie Jenner as the ‘Most Followed’ female on Instagram, Selena Gomez has added yet another record to her credit.

The former Disney star achieved this milestone on March 17, just three months after returning to Instagram.

Gomez has surpassed Kylie Jenner, who previously held the record with 382 million followers.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Selena Gomez are the only people currently on the planet to surpass 400 million followers on Instagram!

400 million is perhaps almost half of the population of the continent of Europe. Isn’t it massive?

Well, from now on Gomez is the most followed woman on IG, but not the most followed person.

The title still belongs to the star football player Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 562 million followers.

Lionel Messi has 442 million followers on IG, making him the second most followed person on this social media platform.

Gomez has had a complicated relationship with social media in the past and she just returned back to the social media limelight earlier in January and again in Feb she announced taking another break.

After taking several Instagram breaks over the years, Gomez revealed in 2019 that she no longer uses the app, as negative comments on her posts had left her feeling “depressed.”

During an interview with Vanity Fair earlier this month, Gomez opened up about her relationship with social media over the years — and revealed why at the time, TikTok is what she enjoyed using most.

“People can call me ugly or stupid and I’m like, whatever. But these people get detailed,” she recalled. “They write paragraphs that are so specific and mean. I would constantly be crying. I constantly had anxiety…I couldn’t do it anymore. It was a waste of my time.”

Gomez added, “The only thing I have on my phone is TikTok because I find it to be a little less hostile. There are wonderful things about social media—connecting with fans, and seeing how happy and excited they are and their stories. But usually, that’s filtered through [for me now]. I created a system. Everything I do I send to my assistant who posts them. As far as comments, my team will put together a few things that are encouraging.”
