Just on the heels of Ariana Grande breaking the record for many followed Instagram female of all time, it got us thinking: Who holds the opposite top spots for most-followed on Instagram? Whether you’re lusting over a celeb’s perfectly-crafted Instagram aesthetic, or you’ve been a day-one fan, any ‘follow’ is a contributing factor to said celeb’s popularity. Let’s investigate which accounts are the top 10 most followed and why. Everyone knows the ins and outs of how Instagram works, but speaking of the app’s most-followed accounts, you almost certainly didn’t know that coming in at:
10-Renowned National Geographic magazine.
The Instagram account currently sits at 145 Million subscribers and is home to a number of the foremost stunning, up-close footage of wildlife, animals, and culture from around the world. In between your usual feed of flat belly tea sponsorships and Kylie Jenner’s cars, consider Nat Geo a touch shake reality and a glimpse into the mysterious wild. So basically, what I’m getting at is, ‘what are you waiting for?’ If you don’t already - they’re worth the follow.
With 147 million followers is Justin Bieber and there’s no need for a reason on why he’s one of the most-watched celebrities within the world. the maximum amount as many of his fans wished that they were that ‘one less lonely girl’ at some point in their lives, nothing warms Justin’s fans’ hearts quite seeing him the happiest he’s ever been, in large part to the content he posts about his wife - Hailey Bieber. Justin gives Beliebers the content they asked for, whether that be some motivational TED Talk advice to updates on his many projects, including his clothing line, recent docuseries.
Just before Justin is Queen Bey, who is followed by 154 million loyal Bey hive members. Beyonce has always kept her personal life out of the spotlight the maximum amount as humanly possible, so consider her Instagram account the closest glimpse into Beyonce’s fascinating world we’ll ever get. Bey’s IG is essentially a hotspot for serving serious looks, which include stunning glamour shots from recent projects, important PSAs needed to be heard by millions, and therefore the rare Knowles-Carter family photo. Not going to lie, her Adidas collab has been added to my Pinterest board’s OOTD inspiration… I mean, even Reese Witherspoon couldn't help but see what all the hype was about… But most significantly, if anyone is looking to relive the glory that's Beyonce’s Coachella Homecoming performance twice during a row just after having twins, by all means, Bey’s blue ‘follow’ button awaits.
Some would consider Lionel Messi the rival of famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, but if you’re not conversant in Lionel, who also goes by Leo, do yourselves a favor and obtain acquainted, like, yesterday. Coming in at number 7 with a whopping 167 million followers, Leo is an Argentinian professional athlete who plays as a forward and captains both La Liga club Barcelona and therefore the Argentina national team. He currently holds Argentina’s record for the all-time leading number of goals scored, as he’s made his way into multiple world cups and is arguably considered one among the world’s best club players. Fans love Leo’s content, which ranges from some of his best action shots to life together with his family, including wife Antonella and their three adorable sons.
Alright, guys, you didn’t think we’d come up with an inventory of the foremost followed celebs on Instagram and NOT include a Kardashian, did you? Kim Kardashian West hails at 6th place on the list, carrying a complete of 188 million Instagram followers. Kim was technically the primary Kardashian to make a reputation for herself, for reasons we won’t get into immediately but has gone on to show her fame into a whole lifestyle brand. She launched her shapewear line SKIMS in 2019, and has taken after her younger sister in conquering the sweetness and fragrance world.
Just before Kim is Selena Gomez with a total of 191 million followers. At one point, Selena wore the coveted crown as Instagram’s most-followed celebrity on the earth until it had been recently overtaken by another pop princess, but fans adore Selena for being so open and honest about life, major career moves, and her relatable struggles. Selena recently dropped her Rare Beauty line in Sephora stores last week and has earned massive amounts of praise from fans and critics for the line’s inclusivity and natural products that promote self-love. to not mention, when Selena utilizes her Instagram platform to tease new music with the most well-liked K-pop girl group within the world, we have that much more reason to offer her a follow.
Moving all along, Kim K. might’ve proved her celebrity status for double the time, but Kylie Jenner’s popularity sky-rocket the second she started her billion-dollar beauty line, Kylie Cosmetics. Kylie currently stands at 194 million followers, and I’m going to leave on a limb and say that half those belong to the adorable Stormi Webster, because how are you able to not just melt once you see this face? apart from flaunting her lavish lifestyle, vacations, cars, and fashion everywhere Instagram, Kylie uses her platform to market her business and tease upcoming makeup collaborations while knowing the way to keep us all coming back for more. Kylie also became the youngest self-made billionaire, according to Forbes, who then retracted her billionaire status after claiming that she forged her taxes and doesn’t make the maximum amount as she’s been projected to, But something tells us that Kylie continues to stay an unbothered queen and isn’t thinking twice about the opinion of a select few.
3-Dwayne Johnson Aka The Rock.
This one might come as a touch more of a surprise to several, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is about to become the third-ever celebrity welcomed into the 200 million clubs, as he currently comes in at 197 million followers. But let’s be real, if you’ve seen the sheer comedic wit and toned muscle mass that The Rock possesses, this is often hardly news. Despite having the nickname of an earth-made substance known to face up to the toughest of storms, let’s just call a spade a spade: This guy’s heart is as big as his left bicep. Dwayne is consistently dropping words of wisdom, flaunting acts of kindness, and in fact, sharing the occasional shredding of rock-hard muscles. On top of all that, he never takes for granted spending time together with his wife Lauren, and his three kids. Safe to mention we like to see it!
