Ariana Grande Is the Queen of Instagram! All of the Major 'Gram Moments That Got Her Here

Grande recently surpassed Selena Gomez as Instagram's most-followed female figure

There’s officially a new queen sitting on the Instagram throne.

With 146.3 million followers, Ariana Grande has edged out fellow pop princess Selena Gomez, who is just behind her with 146.2 million fans, as the most-followed woman on the platform. Gomez held the title for three years and was the most-followed person overall until Oct. 2018 when she was surpassed by soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, who is currently 155.9 million followers strong.

This latest achievement comes on the heels of another record-breaking milestone for Grande: Earlier this month, she became the first artist since The Beatles to hold the No. 1, 2 and 3 slots on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.


To celebrate this monumental occasion, we’re looking back at all the moments Grande kept us amused, inspired and all-around captivated with her ‘gram content.
