It’s official: Shakira is the most likable woman in the world.

On Friday, the Grammy-winning Colombian singer became the first person ever to reach 100 million likes on Facebook.

“I am honored and humbled about reaching this milestone,” Shakira, 37, said. “Social media and specifically Facebook has helped myself and other artists bridge the gap between the stage and the audience.”

Even Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is impressed. “Congrats!” he wrote in a comment on the singer’s page. “What an amazing milestone for an amazing person.”

In honor of her achievement, the artist and activist posted a retrospective video of her notable Facebook moments throughout the years (which include her charity work, album covers, a baby bump photo and cute snapshots of her son, Milan, 18 months), as well as a video thanking her fans for their support.
