You would think the most photographed woman in the world, Kim Kardashian would be the first to achieve this feat – but nope – Selena Gomez did it first! The pop star has become the most followed celebrity on the popular photo sharing site. Gomez’s Instagram account became the first to hit the 100-million follower mark this week. The last photo she posted was an image of herself on stage six weeks ago.
Gomez said in a statement last month that she’s taking a break from the spotlight to deal with anxiety, panic attacks and depression stemming from her battle with lupus. The singer said in a statement to People magazine that she wanted “to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.”
She’s been off IG for weeks, but that hasn’t slowed down her popularity.
