Selena Gomez Is Taking Over Social Media

She's already the most followed person on the photo sharing social platform, and rightly so, however, American beauty Selena Gomez has set a new record now as her photo has become the most liked image on Instagram. I am a massive S.G fan and so wanted to make this post, especially as I am rather obsessed with her on Instagram!

Selena, who has an astronomical number of followers, almost 90 million to be precise, posted a snap of her drinking from a Coca Cola bottle on 25th June. Since then, the gorgeous pic has racked up an impressive 4 million likes!

Selly G captioned the post with "when your lyrics are on the bottle" as she showcased the drink with "You're the spark," lyrics taken from her song "Me & The Rhythm," written on the label.

Whenever Selena posts either selfies or any photo for that matter, on Instagram, they always send her fans into frenzy, myself included, as many of her snaps have caused over 2 million to hit the 'like' button, some even THREE million, and put her well in front in the race for the title of social media queen. Here are just a few:

In this photo in particular, the 23 year old songstress stares into the camera, wearing a red tank top and red nail polish, whilst sipping on the Coca Cola with pouty lips through a straw. She wears a nude lip and warm eye make-up look and her hair is as voluminous and bouncy as ever. She truly does look stunning! Well, let's be real, when doesn't she.
Selena is one of my favourite people to follow on social media and it makes me happy to know that someone as positive and influential in all the right ways, as her, is the most followed. She uses her platform to share intimate moments with her fans, such as at Meet and Greets and photos with her fans after every show, and to thank them. She shares backstage snaps and footage from her life on the road, allowing her fans a closer look into what life is like for Selena Gomez and allowing them to have a closer relationship with her. She is always active on Instagram, especially, and even has an account dedicated solely to posting photos from her 'Revival' tour, so those who can't attend get a sneak peak into the concerts. What a babe.

Previously, the record for the most liked Instagram post was held by Justin Bieber, whose snap was, ironically, of him and Selena kissing, back when they had been dating since 2011. He captioned it "Feels" and the throwback snap the star posted 16 weeks ago has received 3.7 million likes.

Prior to that, the record was held by Kendall Jenner. She posted a photo of her lying on the floor with her hair spread around her into the shape of hearts. Since she uploaded it in May 2015, the picture has had 3.6 million likes and has become quite iconic as many people still enjoy recreating it, I even did it myself haha!

However, Kendall was dethroned by Bieber and Selena has now taken his crown. Her career is going from strength to strength at the moment, what with the success of her latest album 'Revival' and her current tour. It is as if the world has fallen in love with her all over again and it makes me happy to see her having so much success. I reckon she is well and truly taking over social media, people seriously cannot get enough of her! Her make-up artist, Hung Vanngo, loves to post exclusive selfies of Miss Gomez as well and, I don't know about you, but I have a heart attack whenever he does! This lady is too much for me to handle.
