Singer and former Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez has become the first woman to ever surpass the 400 million Instagram follower mark last Friday.
This comes after, less than a month ago, Gomez reached 381 million followers and thus surpassing Kylie Jenner as the most followed woman on the popular social media platform.
Her latest post was a make-up free selfie captioned ‘Violet Chemistry’, which is a track title from Miley Cyrus’ fresh new eighth studio album ‘Endless Summer Vacation.’

Gomez has just started to post again last January after a four year hiatus from the app. She had handed over posting rights to a member of her team due to a reported unhealthy relationship with Instagram.
She did recently announce that she’ll be taking periodic breaks from social media, saying that she is ‘too old’ for it. Meanwhile, Gomez’s following seemed to have sky-rocketed after what seems to be a bit of drama between her and her ex Justin Bieber’s partner Hailey Bieber and the Kardashian sister.
The recent surge in followers reportedly places her in third place behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in terms of followers on the platform.
