Selena Gomez's fans can't keep their hands to themselves because thanks to them, the singer has overtaken BFF Taylor Swift to become Instagram queen with the most number of followers, setting a new record high at 69,695,000 and counting.

Taylor dethroned Kim Kardashian in September, only shortly after the reality TV star beat Beyoncé with the most number of followers. And you thought Kim's 44 million or Taylor's 45 million followers were intimidating then. The top five ranking now stands at Selena, Taylor, Kim, Beyoncé and Justin Bieber. (Who run the world? Girls.)

Meanwhile, Taylor is on holiday with Calvin Harris in a tropical location – possibly as part of their 1-year anniversary celebrations – and both have been posting photos and videos on their Instagram accounts. We wouldn't put it past Swifties to get Taylor's numbers climbing again, given how absolutely adorable she and Calvin are being.


That time when we finally took a vacation. @calvinharris
